What makes a frame a frame?

A frame is made up of several parts and each one contributes to the overall quality and protective nature of a frame.

Medallion:
Located at the top of the frame is a brilliant custom-minted medallion that features your school seal. They are available in silver or gold and can be enameled to increase their beauty.
 
Double matting:
The purpose of matting is both decorative as well as protective. Matting your diploma highlights it by adding size, color and depth. Double matting adds a second layer of protection as well as added space between your diploma and the glass frame.

Moulding:
Mouldings can be made from either wood or metal and are available in 24 different styles. Each moulding can also be decorated with three different fillets, which creates a more sophisticated look.
 
 
Embossing:
Framing success was the original innovator of custom embossed frames and we offer three colors to choose from. There is gold or silver leaf for darker colored mats and then we also offer a black leaf color for lighter colored mats.

 
A frame both protects your diploma from damage and shows the world the pride you have in the degree you have achieved. At Framing Success, we take every aspect of a frame’s design and build as seriously as the next, which in the end contributes to the frame’s overall quality.
