College Diploma Frames and University Diploma Frames
—the Perfect Gift for the Graduation Season!


Danbury, CT – April 26, 2007 – With graduations occurring on college and university campuses across the country, many parents and grandparents are searching for a keepsake graduation gift.  What better idea than a custom-designed diploma frame to showcase that hard-earned and valuable diploma?

Today there are a wide range of diploma frame options, from licensed frames that feature a school's name and academic seal, athletic logo, or campus image, to completely customized options that you can design online to coordinate with the home or office environment.  Through its Diploma Frame Web site, Church Hill Classics offers hundreds of moulding and mat color options to mix-and-match and view online with its Create-A-Frame Web functionality.  You can also search the site by school name to see the frame options that are designed specifically for your college or university.  The most popular diploma frame styles incorporate the school colors into the matting and prominently showcase the school's official name and seal in gold or silver.

New this spring, Church Hill Classics has introduced its Premier Edition diploma frames featuring high-end custom frame shop options.  The Premier frame moulding is a generous 2.5" wide Empire profile, crafted in solid hardwood with a rich Chestnut finish.  The Premier diploma frame includes archival linen fabric matting with an inset gold or silver fillet to accentuate the mat opening.  The matting features gold or silver embossing of the school name below the diploma, and includes an engraved gold or silver medallion of the school seal that is inset in a circular opening on the top of the mat.  To see if the Premier Edition is available for specific colleges or universities, Church Hill Classics offers a special search function which allows website visitors to search by school or organization name.

All of Church Hill Classics' frames are hand crafted at the company's Connecticut facility.  "We pride ourselves on combining the finest quality workmanship with the flexibility of a wide range of design options" explains Lucie Voves, president, Church Hill Classics. 

Each frame features "conservation quality" matting, backing, and mounting materials that meet stringent Library of Congress standards for document preservation.  The frames are designed with a removable back, so a graduate can easily insert his or her own document.  The easy-open frame back also allows for ease of removal should the need arise in the future, such as to make extra copies of the diploma for an alternate office location.
