Tips for Framing and Displaying Diplomas, Degrees, and Certificates

May 08, 2024

As we journey through life, we accumulate milestones that mark our achievements and successes. Among these prized possessions are our diplomas, degrees, and certificates, each representing significant milestones in our educational and professional endeavors. Yet, often, these symbols of hard work and dedication end up tucked away in drawers or forgotten corners rather than proudly displayed where they deserve to be.

At, we understand the importance of preserving and showcasing these achievements with care and pride. Our solid wood frames, paired with frame-grade acrylic and acid-free materials, offer the perfect solution for protecting and preserving your diplomas, degrees, and certificates for years to come. Here are some tips to help you frame and display your accomplishments with style and elegance:

  1. Choose High-Quality Materials: When it comes to framing your diplomas and certificates, quality matters. Opt for solid wood frames that provide both durability and aesthetic appeal. Our frames are crafted with precision and attention to detail, ensuring your documents are protected and displayed in style.

  2. Protect with Frame-Grade Acrylic: Unlike traditional glass, frame-grade acrylic offers superior clarity and durability while providing UV protection to prevent fading and damage over time. This ensures your diplomas and certificates remain pristine and vibrant, even when displayed in sunlight or high-traffic areas.

  3. Embrace Customization: Make your display truly unique by opting for custom framing solutions. Our diploma frames feature some of our most popular frame styles, ranging from sleek and modern to classic and ornate. Choose the perfect frame to complement your personal style and decor preferences.

  4. Enhance with Acid-Free Materials: Acid-free mats and backing boards are essential for preserving the integrity of your diplomas, degrees, and certificates. These materials prevent yellowing and deterioration over time, ensuring that your documents remain in pristine condition for generations to come. Our diploma frames come with acid-free double mats in various color combinations, allowing you to create a customized display that reflects your individual taste and style.

  5. Consider Conservation Framing: Conservation framing is a must for valuable or irreplaceable documents. This specialized framing technique uses museum-quality materials and techniques to provide the highest level of protection and preservation. Our team of expert framers can help you select the right framing solution to ensure that your diplomas and certificates are safeguarded for years to come.

  6. Display with Pride: Once framed, your diplomas, degrees, and certificates are ready to be proudly displayed in your home or office. Choose a prominent location where they will be noticed and admired, such as a home office, living room, or hallway. Our frames come with easy-to-use hanging hardware, making it simple to create a professional-quality display in minutes.

  7. Rotate and Refresh: Keep your display interesting by rotating your diplomas and certificates throughout the year. This lets you showcase different achievements and keeps your display fresh and engaging. Our frames make it easy to swap out documents whenever you like, so you can update your display with ease.
