Inches or centimeters?

For diplomas, generally speaking when obtained from a college or university within the united states will utilize the imperial system to the nearest quarter (1/4) inch. Even more common is for these diplomas to be made to the nearest half (1/2) inch. For example, some common diploma sizes are: 14"(W) x 10"(H), 17"(W) x 22"(H), and 11"(W) x 8.5"(H). If your diploma does not follow these conventions, there could be the off chance that it is made to the nearest eight (1/8) inch however this is extremely unlikely and chances are that you probably have a diploma utilizing the System International (SI).

For photographs, drawings, and certain paintings we recommend that you choose "same as primary" mat. This will keep focus on your item.

Which mat color should I choose?

For diplomas, we recommend a black accent mat. A black accent mat will make your diploma stand out and highlight your prized achievement. Black accent mats are also used when there are many small items in a document or when text is predominent.

We don't kill your artwork with harmful materials.

The framing industry is full of misconceptions, incorrect knowledge, marketing hype, and straight up lies. This has persisted for years because of ignorance and the unwillingness to disclose accurate information to consumers.

100% American made with 100% American materials

Any frame can be “made in America”, but where do your materials come from? American materials are made with stringent quality control and environmental regulations.

We don't try to conceal the acid — our materials don't have any

Acid is corrosive, destructive, damaging. Do you really want your artwork attached and sandwiched between acidic material? The only 100% sure way to know there is 0% acid is by using 100% cotton mats because cotton is naturally balanced (pH of 7).

UV-A filtering: 99.9% @380Nm; 99.5% @390Nm

What does "UV filtering" really mean? It can mean a lot or nothing. Stating that your glazing (glass or acrylic) is "UV filtering" doesn’t mean much because it can filter 1%, 5%, 60%, 99% or anywhere inbetween! Furthermore at what wavelength (Nm) is it filtering these percentages? We provide the best glazing period – because we understand the science behind it.
