So I got my nice new Diploma and was left with a issue. I got a basic display for the diploma that kind of felt and looked cheap. I spent a fortune to obtain this diploma and to my surprise the College I attended also wanted a fortune for the diploma. Why must Diploma Frames Cost So Much?
That’s got to be a better way?
A lot of people told me you can get a regular frame and it would work just fine. You must keep in mind to get a Acid-Free backing to keep the diploma from turning a nasty yellow color.
I even have some friends to create their own frames.
Before you frame up the diploma that you worked so hard for you must first fight age. I know it sounds silly now, but age makes fools of us all. Try to get a high-quality scan of the diploma first before you frame it. No matter how hard you try and no matter how much you’ll spend the diploma will age and change. A digital copy is a type of guarantee for the diploma.
You can keep the digital file for longer. I would even email it to yourself so that you always have it and don’t have to worry about fire or water destroying it.
Don’t Hang Your Diploma
When I say don’t hang your diploma I don’t mean you shouldn’t hang it, but instead, you should hang the copy of it. No one but you will notice that you hung a copy of the diploma on your wall. Use the same paper or similar to the diploma and hang that instead. Keep the real diploma somewhere safe, like a fire proof safe.
