How We Make the Best Diploma and Degree Frames at University Frames

For over 25 years, University Frames has been manufacturing elegant and affordable diploma and degree frames with exceptional designs and styles. We use solid hardwood in all our frames to preserve and protect your document for years. All our diploma frames are hand-crafted, customized, and carefully inspected to meet your specific requirements.

What makes our frames stand out?

Our diploma frames are made of several components, including:

Frame Mouldings

Designed with a luxurious satin or high gloss finish, our frame mouldings feature the finest hardwood that includes two highly desirable characteristics: straight grain and hardness. You can choose from eight different moulding designs and customize it further to match your preferences.

Framing Mat Board

Manufactured by industry-leading professionals, our mat boards and mount boards are acid and lignin-free to keep your document intact. Our mat board varieties include traditional mats & suede mats. We offer the option of a double mat at no additional charge with all frames except the Executive style. Also, for many schools, we offer a distinctive medallion to create elegant custom diploma frames that will shine brilliantly for years.

Framing Glass Options

We offer various high-quality glass options to help protect the diploma/degree frames from dust, dirt, and UV light (up to 45%). We also have upgraded glass options like museum glass and UV protection glass which block up to 99% of UV rays to preserve your diploma.

University Seal

We offer two options for imprinting your school's official seal; a foil imprint, or for some schools, a medallion. These are 1.5 inches in diameter and come in two finishes, including silver(rhodium) plating or 22-karat gold. We also provide hand-crafted logo mats in school colors to display your school spirit.

Environmental Responsibility

By participating in the Environmental Protection Agency's Waste Wise Program, we encourage the prevention, recycling, and reuse of waste companywide. Our packages are made with 80% post-consumer recycled content, thus preventing waste and conserving resources.

Packaging and Adhesive

We pack all our frames with utmost care and attention to ensure that you receive them undamaged. We recommend using Scotch Magic Tape to attach your document to the matboard. However, please note that our kit does not include this adhesive, and it is your responsibility to use the proper tape.

University Frames Vs. Other Frame Companies

Alumni organizations, college bookstores, and other official campus resources offer official diploma frames with the school/college name and its logo/seal imprinted on the mat board. Many online frame companies also offer college diploma frames, but are they the same as the frames offered on the campuses?

The Reality

Though many online framing companies claim to offer custom imprinted frames affiliated to the colleges and universities listed on their site, they do not print these names on the mat board.

University Frames is officially licensed to offer diploma and certificate frames to various universities and colleges with their name and seal/logo imprinted on the mat board. Thus, we offer official diploma frames.

Shipping Time

We usually ship the frames within 5 to 6 weeks, whereas others take 6 to 10 weeks for shipping.

We Offer What You Need

We also offer non-imprinted frames. If you want the imprint for a school that is not shown on our website, call us to learn whether we are licensed with that institute, or if other arrangements can be made.
