Frame your diploma; preserve the blood, sweat, and tears (and all the good times) for years to come.
Why custom framing? Your prized sheepskin/diploma is safely protected and isolated from the glass to reduce the risk of humidity damage and other environmental influences.
At High Desert Frameworks, we recommend the use of a professional hinge mount vs lamination and dry mounting. If fact, your diploma should never be dry mounted, spray mounted, or otherwise permanently adhered to a board for framing.
As with any important document, it is best presented with within a single or double mat opening, utilizing preservation mounting techniques. The document should have room to expand and contract with changing temperatures and even a slight movement in the document is preferable to permanently and irreversibly dry mounting.
You diploma should be custom framed using a high quality archival mat, which both showcases the document and keeps it away from the glass.
We ensure that the matting and backing materials are not just buffered to be acid-free, but are designed for “conservation.” As a rule of thumb, the mat should be 2.25” to 3.5” wide, depending on the size of your diploma.
