Modern Diploma Frame


Looking to honor your achievement with a handcrafted, sophisticated, modern, unique presentation? Five years ago, I set out to design and handcraft a more modern and sophisticated solution. My daughter graduated from a Florida University and deserved a handmade unique frame for her accomplishment. Being a classically trained furniture maker, my first instinct was to build an ornate frame with multiple layers of molding to showcase my skills. I realized “old school’ diploma framing is no longer preferred. I also did not like the acrylic stand-off “floating” frames on the market. My solution was to handcraft a gorgeous flat panel of timber with chamfered edges and a gorgeous finish and accentuate it with a beautifully chamfered piece of quarter inch thick UV blocking acrylic.

My Modern Diploma Frame is handcrafted to order in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains to order. No detail is overlooked :

  • Your choice of select timber panel
  • Your choice of hand rubbed finish
  • Hand chamfered edges
  • High quality .220 Optic Acrylic
  • UV resistant
  • Your choice of grommet color
  • Hanging hardware
  • Easy Installation

My standard size frame generously fits most diplomas including High School, Bachelor, Masters, Doctorate and other diplomas up to 17″ by 14″ in size. Lead time is normally 2-3 weeks
