How do you mount your pennants?

I have two pennants, one from the 70's my dad gave me and one I bought sometime in the 80's.
They have been languishing in the closet and been getting a bit musty.
I have plastic sleeves for them but I want something better.
I'd like to mount them properly and hang them in my office.
Anyone have a good example of how to display them nicely?

First I give them a little wine to loosen them up and lower their inhibitions...

I dont know really. Mine are languishing on a shelf

Re: How do you mount your pennants?

"Languish" is the strangest word. It is an active-voice verb which denotes a very passive state.

Back to the question: why not velcro the pennants to colored rectangular felt backgrounds and then put the rectangles into frames as if they were pictures? The pennants would look nice and be protected.

Re: How do you mount your pennants?

I actually keep mine in the plastic top loaders. To display them I hang them point down (slightly or whatever angle fits the space). I then use a small nail on the top and bottom and let the weight of the top loader hold it into place. Doing it that way will not damage the pennant and if I want to get it signed (or add signatures) it is easy to do.

fyi - if you ever get one signed use a paint pen and not a sharpie. Over time the sharpie will fade into the fabric like it was never signed.

No one wants to see your pennant, Dirtbag.
