1. Varsity Letter Frame

Know a high school student who worked hard this year to earn his or her varsity letter? Since the 1930s, athletes and school club members have been sewing their letters onto varsity jackets to display their team pride. But wearing that coveted letter on a jacket means exposure to rain, dirt, UV rays, and other harsh elements. Plus, not all high schools follow the varsity jacket tradition. For students who don’t wear varsity jackets or who’ve received more than one letter, there’s another option: displaying and protecting it in a shadow box featuring their school colors. Our varsity letter frame is deep enough to add pins, patches, and other team-related memorabilia and even includes an engravable nameplate for personalization. It’s the perfect way to celebrate team pride while safeguarding their varsity letter for years to come.
