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.

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 .
