What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Your tassel is a graduation ornament made up of a bundle of threads that represent your school colors. Each graduate will receive a tassel to attach to their graduation cap. In traditional fashion, graduates arrive at the ceremony with the tassel hanging on the right side. Once they are called one by one to receive their diploma, the tassel is then moved to the left side. This signifies the movement from degree candidate to college graduate! It is the penultimate symbol of accomplishment and the final payoff from your four years of hardwork and dedication. 

College grad

When your principal or superintendent moved your tassel from right to left during your high school graduation, you may have not viewed this moment as an important one. You might have already been committed to a college or were on your way towards future schooling and as a result, graduation felt lackluster because you knew you weren’t finished learning, doing homework, studying, and taking exams. 

Your college graduation should be different even if you intend to continue your education. This is because you’re now finished with your undergraduate career, you’re in the prime ages of your life, your career is right around the corner, and last but not least -- you’re on your way to fully entering adulthood! 

As you take the next steps forward and begin to reflect on your undergraduate career, you’ll be left with a number of belongings. You have your cap and gown, cords and stoles, tassel, and your diploma to think about. Rather than putting them in a storage container labeled “college things,” put them in a beautiful display that commemorates your college experience. 

You may be thinking about what to do with your college diploma. The good news is, we have the answer -- frame it and put it somewhere open and public that way you can show your accomplishment with pride and feel good about it! 

We’ll walk you through the different types of diploma frames, where you should display it, and why!

Diploma Frame With Tassel 

Diploma Frame
The diploma and tassel frame lets you showcase your bachelors degree with adding a bit of school spirit and pride with your tassel.

Everyone has seen homemade college shadow boxes where your graduation cap sits front and center adorned by your cords, stoles, commencement book, and maybe even a few of your favorite graduation photos. While we love the craftiness and creativity that goes into putting together these shadow boxes, they lack a sophisticated and professional touch. 

A shadow box is perfect for the home or a curio cabinet filled with your proudest accomplishments, but a diploma frame is better used in a more professional setting whether it's in your work or home office, or somewhere else! 

This diploma and tassel box frame comes encased in a sophisticated mahogany hardwood moulding surrounded by a black matboard with a gold trim accent that ties it all together. Your college or university name will be embossed on the bottom of the matboard, the top portion will display your school crest or seal in gold foil.

Rest assured your diploma will be safe inside the frame because both the matboard and mountboard are acid and lignin free as well as pH neutral to preserve and protect your magnificent accomplishment. 

What we love most about this frame is that it's a professional mashup of a traditional diploma frame and a shadow box! The slot for your tassel adds a sense of personalization and lets you show off your school spirit. 

Brushed Aluminum Tassel
Another option is the tassel and picture frame which lets you display your graduation tassel and a personal favorite photo from your special day. 

If you’re looking for an alternative way to display your tassel -- consider this brushed aluminum tassel and photo frame. This is a great option if you received a different diploma frame as a gift or if you’re looking for a way to celebrate your achievement on a budget! 

This photo frame allows you to remember your favorite photo from your big day and has a special place to display your graduation tassel. We think this would make a great addition to your work desk, your bedroom dresser, or even during a graduation party so everyone can admire your graduation day. 

Traditional Diploma Frame

The traditional diploma frame is your standard frame, much like the tassel frame, but without the section for your tassel. Your diploma will also be encased in a hardwood moulding and a mat board that is specific to your college or university. The color matboard will either be a school specific color or class black. 

Double Diploma Frame

These frames are displayed vertically with two sections -- one for a photo and one for your actual diploma. The photo section will depend on the type of frame you select. Some frames come with a picture already set in, these pictures are usually of a specific attribute to your campus. 

This can be your old main building, another specific campus building, or an easily recognizable piece of architecture that is a focal point on campus. The other type of frame comes with an empty section to insert your favorite photo from graduation day. We love the personalization aspect of this frame -- it still comes with that classic sophisticated look and allows you to represent yourself at the same time!

Where to Hang Your Diploma Frame

Diploma frames look wonderful in a variety of spaces -- your home, home office, work office, a cabinet or shelf, or anywhere you think your achievement should be displayed.

This one depends on you and your preferences. Maybe you expect to start a career in a field where you’ll never have a desk or an office to display your diploma. In this case, a home office or display is a great place to hang your diploma. 

If you plan on going on to get your masters or even your PhD, then you’ll most likely end up with your own office space. In this case, you might want to think about coordinating your diploma frames so they all match. Eventually you will have multiple hanging up in the same space, so if they are all mismatched, this won’t look good. As long as you pick a classic wooden moulding and a black mat board -- all of your frames are guaranteed to match and look great together. 

If none of these locations sound good to you, then create your own perfect spot to hang your diploma. With a little bit of creativity, you are sure to come up with an idea that matches your personal style. 

Why Hang a Diploma Frame

You’ve spent four years getting the education and credibility you need to enter the job force -- this is particularly why your degree is so important, it certifies your background. 

A diploma frame accentuates your professional brand. When you hang up your diploma, you make yourself appear reliable and credible. Your peers, coworkers, clients, and anyone else who may be coming into your work space wants to be reassured that you have been adequately prepared for your job. They want to know you have the education and preparation to help them, this will make them feel at ease and more enthusiastic when working with you. 

Another reason is for your own sense of nostalgia. Once we graduate, many of us feel sad to be leaving such a happy and exciting chapter of our lives. Your diploma frame is a constant reminder of your positive experiences, memories, accomplishments, and hard work that went into earning your degree. College is also responsible for self-discovery -- it is where we find our true selves, passions, interests, greatest friendships and more. So, a diploma frame will help you preserve these happy memories

Lastly, a diploma frame comes with a great sense of pride and accomplishments. You shouldn’t downplay your graduation for any reason -- not everyone is able to make it to graduation day. You wouldn’t be able to claim your degree without the hours of studying, writing papers, taking exams, putting together projects and presentations and everything else that was required in order to successfully earn your degree. 

For all of these reasons, you should feel great about buying and hanging a diploma frame. College is expensive, and we’re sure many people helped you out along the way, this doesn’t have to be financially, but rather through support and encouragement. Others are happy you accomplished this wonderful achievement, so if you can’t hang it for yourself, then do it for everyone else who wants to see your diploma shine.
