Monroe, CT – December 2, 2010 – Cornell University bookstore's Kelley Foster (The Cornell Store) said in a recent email, "Church Hill Classics has come up with another fantastic idea in using vibrant school colors in matting and embossing choices.  We are taking advantage of this fresh approach to showcase Cornell University diplomas with red matting and black embossing.  It looks really sharp! Winning Colors adds an extra dimension to our selection of diploma frames."

With the introduction of Winning Colors, college name and seal embossings on diploma frame matting has taken on a whole new turn at Church Hill Classics (CHC). The company, which operates online as, has given school spirit a novel twist with embossing colors of orange, green, yellow, red, navy, or black, on matting combinations that best suits ones' school.

Silver and gold foil embossings are fundamental shades with that classic appeal, but the rich and vivid Winning Colors  embossing from Church Hill Classics are definitely revving up the wow factor, especially for dedicated grads and alumni.   

Winning Colors embossing options are matched with compatible matting colors so that Princeton University, for instance, has a black outer mat paired with a bright orange inner mat and orange embossing to complement the school colors of orange and black.  For Michigan State University, green and white are the school colors, so green embossing is the perfect choice placed on a black mat.  The whole line of Winning Colors is framed in Eclipse – a solid hardwood frame moulding with black satin finish and a high gloss inner lip.
