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.

Framed Football Photo Collage

Today we are here to talk about memories and how do we preserve them. Picture framing is a great idea to hold on and memorialize those moments in our life that are worth looking at over and over again. Our memories are the only thing we have when we look at the past. For us to recall those moments we see the moment in our mind, or hopefully, if it was something special, we take a picture so we can remember it. Whether it was that fishing trip where your grandson caught his first largemouth bass, or whether it was when the whole family finally got together for Thanksgiving, here at Frames USA our goal is to make your memories special and give you all the selections and choices you need to make your framing decision. Selection, price, and a good value. We are here to make your memories appear on your walls exactly how they should look. Timeless. So if it’s wedding pictures, Quinceañera pictures, kid’s graduation pictures, or any pictures of your pet, your family…your memories. At Frames USA, that is what we are here for, framing your memories – you name it, we’ll frame it.

So don’t let your memories go to waste and float away to the wayside to be forgotten forever. So many things happen in our life it’s hard to remember to take pictures of your special moments so we don’t forget them. These special moments only come once and our memory isn’t perfect, so for those special moments, always bring a camera. Don’t forget, come to us at Frames USA after you captured that special moment. We will be happy to assist you in framing your memories.

From Swords to Frame: (A night’s and Frame Story)

knight-frame-assembly-1

This story begins with a collector looking for the best way to display and protect his prized possession.  The collector stopped by our shop and showed Adam (owner of the shop) the knights’ uniform.

After looking at different frames and matting the collector finally decided on the look that he wanted for his Knight’s uniforms.

Our experienced master framers took the items, with skill and care, they created a beautiful shadowbox to display and protect these beautiful pieces of history.

After the uniforms were in place, our master framers delivered the piece to the collector’s house and professionally hang the piece as if it was  museum artwork.

If you have any type of memorabilia (historic, sports, theatre etc.) in your closet, let us professionally frame it .
