Many customers have asked us if it’s smarter to buy a diploma frame online from Church Hill Classics as opposed to going to their local frame shop to have their certificate or diploma framed. While there are many viewpoints, we have outlined the reasons you should feel confident ordering our high-quality products online in this blog.

Licensing & College Support

When you buy a Church Hill Classics diploma frame, you are purchasing an officially licensed product that allows you to proudly display your achievement and showcases your individual school’s name and seal or athletic marks. Local frame shops typically do not have permission or the ability to offer specially made frames embossed with the name and seal of an institution.

Also, purchasing a licensed frame helps support your college or university because part of the proceeds for each licensed frame sold goes back to the school, and the sales help support your local college store or alumni association, often run by the institution itself.

Quality Custom Frames

When you purchase a licensed frame from Church Hill Classics, you can be assured that you are choosing a quality product, as all licensed products are reviewed and approved for quality workmanship, and licensed companies are screened and evaluated for their customer service and responsiveness.

Church Hill Classics handcrafts each one of our frames, and uses only high-quality materials, including acid-free, museum-quality matting, mounting and backing materials, so you can be sure that your diploma will be preserved as it is displayed.
