I was looking for a company that provided my college's name and seal on the matting or the frame. Your company was the first that I came across on the web. I liked the variety I could choose from: with tassel, pennant, campus picture, or just the diploma. I received excellent product, excellent service and excellent quality.

Your Diploma, Document, or Varsity Letter

  1. What does  "printed area size" mean?
  2. And what is the difference between printed area size and actual paper size?
  3. How do I measure my document before ordering a diploma frame?
  4. I am trying to frame a document, but the exact size is not available. What do you suggest?
  5. Should I mail my diploma, document, or varsity letter to you to be framed?



  1. What does "printed area size" mean?

    The "printed area size" is where the printed text or image begins to where it ends. You must measure from the top of the highest lettering to the bottom of the lowest image (usually the seal or signature) and the same applies to the lettering from left to right. This ensures a perfect fit for your document.

  2. And what is the difference between printed area size and actual paper size?

    "Actual paper size" is the overall physical size of your document, while "printed area size" refers to the measurement of the actual text and/or seal from left to right and top to bottom of the document.

  3. How do I measure my document before ordering a diploma frame?

    When ordering on Design Your Frame, we need to make certain that your diploma fits perfectly with your new diploma frame.  You will be prompted to fill out the actual paper size (see above), where you take a ruler or tape measure and measure the exact height and width of your diploma from edge to edge.  You will then need to fill in the exact printed area size (see above).  This refers to the measurement of the actual text and/or seal from left to right and top to bottom of the document. Please be sure to use decimals and not fractions or your order cannot be processed.

  4. I am trying to frame a document using Design Your Frame, but the exact size is not available. What do you suggest?

    We will custom size your frame specifically for your document measurements, so you don't have to worry about the frame not fitting properly. Please select the "Up to document size" from the Estimated Document Size drop down menu, and this sets the pricing.  At the last step in the design process, the system will ask you for the ACTUAL paper size and EXACT printed area size. We use those dimensions to custom-design your frame so it is a perfect fit.

  5. Should I mail my diploma, document, or varsity letter to you to be framed?

    There is no need to send us your diploma, document, or varsity letter. In order to avoid loss or damage of these items, we have designed our frames to feature an easy-open back that allows you to readily insert your document or varsity letter. The frame comes with simple step-by-step instructions.  These instructions include our toll-free telephone number and you may contact us if you have any questions during the framing process.
