Custom Framed Diplomas

Reframing – 22 Years Later

Reframing – 22 Years Later
As many of us do when we graduate from college, I didn't think too much about how my diploma was framed.  I was a starving artist with big student loan payments, and went the ready-made frame way to display my diploma (see below).  This small piece of paper that I spent over $25,000 on, got jammed into a cheap frame and matt.  I went to art school!  My diploma should look a bit better than that!  Come on!  I work at THE FRAME STUDIO!  I am a picture framer! So I decided to reframe this expensive piece of paper - 22 years later. The first thing we had to contend with, was the damage that was...

POP!

POP!
How many times have you walked through a room and thought that it needs a little something?  Why not place a wall grouping in the space to give it some pop? Many of Little's Photography's clients pick a series of photos to frame from their shoots, and we at THE FRAME STUDIO love to frame these collections for wall groupings.  But you don't need to limit yourself to just photographs . . . add in mementos from a trip, or keepsakes from family members - things that are connected with the grouping.  Whether you frame them to be a symmetrical grouping to add balance to a space, or an asymmetrica...

Our Favorite Vet

Dr. Rudd Nelson from Bayview Animal Clinic and his office manager wife- Leslie, left it up to us to pick the right frame for this diploma that he "worked his butt off for!"  She had it in a box for years because their practice is booming and had no time to come to us. This is Majolica by Larson Juhl and it is perfect for this piece.  Leslie said she preferred edgy to traditional.  We looked up the Mississippi's colors and this was a good match.  The bottom mat is gold to accent the embellishments.

Make your accomplishments stand out

This is woman is not shy about her accomplishments and why should she be...?  This looked amazing.  Both of these diplomas had been damaged from years of poor storage, but Bela was able to improve the look with some trade secrets.  The damage was not at all noticeable.  This chunky, black with silver edge trim, went perfectly with the bold red mat and black bottom mat.
