Thank you so much for replying to me so quickly. I am relatively new to purchasing things on the web. I placed an order with your company for two reasons. The first being the superior quality of your reasonably priced diploma frames. And the second, your value of customer service.

Moving into Your Dorm Room (Wow!)

Big news here...My son moved into his dorm room at Beloit College in Wisconsin last Saturday and even though the sunny day helped, since there were lots (and lots) of trips back and forth from the car to the dorm, it's a huge job.  We came from a distance (Connecticut), so, we brought all of his summer clothes and all of his winter things too.   Plus there were all the school supplies, all the linens, blankets, and towels, and the ki ...
