Accepting Framing Orders until December 17 for Christmas

How our new Diploma Frames surpass the Quality of the Typical Diploma Frame AND at a Great Price!

One thing this business has taught me in the past 30 years is that the typical diploma frame, sold through the college and university stores, is not the high quality frame that graduates or their loved ones expect.  On the contrary.  They are really high priced, minimal grade frames.

Back in 2012, Museum Framing attended the National Association College Store (NACS) convention in Salt Lake City where suppliers and manufacturers attend to sell their goods to the college and university store market.

We found that most of the college stores are owned and/or operated by large outside corporations, not the schools.

The frame prices are high so that each of the frame dealers, college store middlemen and the colleges/universities make a high profit.

For over 30 years, our clients know we use 99% UV filtered glass or acrylic, 100% cotton rag double matting and two layered archival backing. The highest quality obtainable on the market.

The same materials we use for museums, libraries and collectors of rare and historical documents, we also use for our diploma frames.

And, since 1989, we have provided fair, honest pricing to all our clients.

By the way,  why do you need the college logo and name printed on the matting when it's already on the diploma?

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime.
