Diploma Framing

Most people are not aware of what it takes to frame a diploma, so we have decided to take some time to explain the different components of the framing process and how we come up with the pricing of each piece.


Let’s begin with the most basic framed diploma:  The most basic materials used in framing a diploma are the following:

  1. The Frame (AKA Moulding)
  2. The Mat
  3. The Glass

Pricing ranges from $39.00 and up.

Determining the price of a job is based on the following:

  1. What is the size of the diploma?  (in inches)
  2. Selecting the Frame:  sample-frames-small
    1. How thick do you want the frame?  1/4 in, 1/2 in, 1 in, etc.
    2. What color?
    3. What kind of frame?  wood, metal, plastic.
  3. Selecting the Mat:  (This is always recommended.  The mat puts some space between the ink of the diploma and the glass, and keeps it from sticking to the glass.)  mat-board-samples
    1. How many visible inches around the diploma?  1/4 in, 1/2 in, 1 in, etc. (Standard is 2 in.)
    2. Double or triple mat?
    3. What color?
    4. What kind of mat? Linen, acid free, leather, etc.
  4. Selecting the Glass:   glass-samples2
    1. Regular, conservation, plexi, non-glare, museum.
