People meeting in office with frames in background

There’s nothing more frustrating than ordering or being given a beautiful custom frame and the moulding doesn’t end up matching the space where it’s hung. You don’t want to go through the work of purchasing a frame just to end up hiding your diploma away in a box! That’s why when it comes to the art of custom framing, it’s important to have a wide variety of moulding options available. We believe a statement piece like a diploma frame deserves a wood frame moulding that complements its surroundings and draws attention to the important document it holds!


Moulding is the wood that creates the outside border of your frame and keeps the mat, backing, and your precious document, safe and secure. When it comes to choosing the right frame moulding, there are a handful of things to consider. First, where are you planning to hang it? A frame for a business professional that’s displayed in a busy office will likely look different than one hung in a casual family living room.


Second, what’s the furniture color and decor style in the space it’ll be hung? Choosing a moulding style that complements any surrounding fabrics, furniture pieces, and wall accessories is a great way to make sure it’ll match.

Lastly, who is it for? Each frame recipient has a personal style, and their custom diploma frame should reflect them! Do you have a graduate who attended a prestigious college or university? Browse our college store pages to find a frame that reflects their alma mater. We want to help you choose the right diploma and picture frame mouldings for your special graduate! Church Hill Classics is proud to offer a vast amount of wood picture frame moulding profiles and styles.
