Received my frame on Wednesday and got round to sorting it all out.  It's resting on the side in my study room.

Very impressed with the quality and it was simple  to put it all together.  It's not got a photo of me 'cos all the ones i could find were horrible, but it shows off my VLM medal with a plaque underneath!!

So, I get to run a race - £35 entry fee, then I have to travel - £25, and further afield maybe an over-nighter - £65, plus food etc - £40, I can now have my medal inscribed with my time - £10, then I come home and want a photo - £18, it's cost me best part of £200 every other weekend and then there's the charity people, if you think there is any money left to add a frame you're on another planet. I might try a cheaper hobby like flying lessons or cocaine

I had a friend who used to frame them all together in rows with the ribbons folded under in what I think was a taxodermy frame. Looked cool.

Hi all,

I've had a bad experience with medal-frames.com. I ordered a frame 7 weeks ago which has never arrived. Despite calling and e-mailing I have had very little communication apart from a couple of weeks ago when I was told it would be despatched in the next day or so.

So far, nothing. I just want to warn others so you don't end up in the same position as me.

Just get a towel rail to hang them all on!

Now that sounds a great idea

Alex  I wish I'd read your message earlier. Did it ever turn up?

My wife did her first ever 5k a month back so i order her a frame from medal-frames.com and can't even get them to acknowledge my order!!!

Even raised a dispute on paypal with no response, lets see what happen when make a claim via paypal.

So if anyone else is thinking of using them I would suggest you don't.

Sainsbury's sell little sticky utensil hooks that attach to walls and doors and the like, you can just make your own display with them

I was looking for something on ebay and came across something called a "floating frame". You sandwich your medals between two sheets of silicone. The pictures look great - anyone tried these? Not sure if I'm allowed to link to it, here's trying -

Those look great. Only thing is, the medals need to be of the same thickness. I suppose if you're folding the ribbons behind them, you could compensate with a filler item in between thinner ones. 

I like them.
