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!

Another academic semester has come and gone and as the spring semester of 2021 draws near, you might want to start thinking about the diploma you’ll be receiving and what you intend to do with it. Likewise, every class has winter graduates, so if you’re someone who graduated after the fall 2020 semester, then you too need a diploma frame!

I know it’s difficult to decide right here, right now what you want to do with your diploma. Will you be continuing your education through a masters program with the intention of achieving your PhD? Or are you a newly minted graduate with aspirations to join the workforce right away? 

Here’s what we can tell you -- no matter what path you plan on taking, both are means for purchasing a diploma frame. If you plan on getting a job, of course you’re going to start out in an entry level position. You may not have your own office, so you may be thinking, why should I buy a diploma frame? Well, the answer is -- you won’t be in that entry level position forever, and when you’re a big shot in the company a few years down the road with your own office, you’d wish you bought that diploma frame when you have the chance. 

Similarly, if your goal is to continue your education and keep earning degrees and certificates, then you’ll most definitely want a diploma frame! At some point your many degrees will land you an important position whether you want to be a professor or a higher up member of a company -- all these degrees should be displayed together to show off your achievements. 

The only issue is, not all diploma frames fall into the one size fits all category. Depending on your field and type of degree, there are different sizes for every diploma. Nothing is worse than ordering your beautiful new frame only to find out you purchased the wrong size. Well have no fear because we are here to guide you to success the first time around! 

Different Size Frames 

The right size diploma frame depends on your school and the type of degree you will be receiving, it’s best to do some research before buying. 

Buying the right size diploma frame can be tricky whether you are the student or someone who wants to buy the frame as a gift. To ensure you select the right size, you should research what type of degree they will be receiving, but don’t worry because we’ve already done the work for you! 

It’s important to note, the measurements we’ve listed are the usual or typical size, sometimes referred to as standard. However, this may not be the size of your diploma. Different colleges and universities sometimes have their own measurements. 

If you are unsure, you can visit your school’s website. The current size diploma measurements may be listed under Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) or under the business or registrar's office. If you still cannot find the measurements, you might want to look under the graduation tab. 

If all else fails -- you can resort to the old fashioned way, grab your tape measurer and do it yourself. This will have to be after you or your student receives their diploma, but this is the most accurate way to get the proper measurements. To do this, measure across the top of the diploma to get the width measurement and across the side to get the height measurement. 

What Type of Frame is Right for Me? 

Your perfect diploma frame depends on your personal style and what you intend to do with your diploma. 

The right diploma frame for you depends on what type of personal style you have and how you want to remember your college career. Remember this is an important accomplishment and you have every right to be proud of your achievement! There are a number of different frame styles from your basic frame to ones that include images of buildings on your campus, a place to insert your favorite graduation photograph, or even your tassel. We will walk you through the selection of frames to help you get a better understanding of what you want. 

Traditional Diploma Frame

The traditional frame includes the basic elements that can be found on most frames. It includes a slot to insert your diploma and comes with instructions for easy insertion. These frames are usually made with a hardwood moulding fit with a mat board that can either be black, or maybe one of your school colors. They are also embossed with your college or university’s name on the bottom board and your school crest/seal on the top border.  

Photograph Diploma Frame

The photograph frame is displayed vertically with a place for your favorite graduation photo above your diploma. The hardwood moulding is accompanied by an elegant black mat board that will pair perfectly with future diploma frames and other furniture. This frame is best for someone who wants to personalize their experience by adding a sentimental photo of your big day!

Primer Photograph Diploma Frame 

The primer photograph frame depends on your college or university. These frames come in a variety of options, they include photographs of some of the most iconic features on your campus. Whether it’s the old main building, a physical piece of art or an identifiable architectural element that everyone recognizes, or a photo of your campus from the archives, you’re sure to find one that fits your idea of perfect. If you attend a large university, there will be many options to sort through. The photograph will accompany your diploma and be encased in a hardwood frame fit with the matboard that best matches your school.

Diploma and Tassel Box Frame

Shadow boxes have become increasingly popular over the years. These boxes are characteristically made with your graduation cap, cords, stoles, pins, photographs, and your graduation tassel all arranged in a beautiful display to commemorate your college years. 

The diploma and tassel box frame plays on the idea of a shadow box. It includes a space for your diploma as well as a place to hang your tassel. This frame also comes in a beautiful hardwood moulding and black mat board that includes your school name and crest. The gold trim border makes for a beautiful compliment to the school seal which will be made from gold foil. This frame is perfect for someone who wants to display their diploma the traditional way, but with a little school spirit through your tassel. 

Custom Frames

Don’t see anything you like? Not to worry because you can place a custom order from your diploma frame and create the perfect one to match your personality and style. This is also a great option if you find out that your diploma frame is larger or smaller than the standard 8” x 10” or 8 ½” x 10.”

Why Hang Your Diploma?

Be proud of your achievement and the work that went into earning your degree -- remember that education is responsible for giving you job opportunities. 

This question is a no brainer for us -- you should hang your diploma because you worked and studied hard for four long years and your reward is the degree to prove it! Some students have trouble understanding the importance of their college graduation. Think about all the long hours and overnights you spent at the library, all of the group study sessions, mounds of flashcards, projects that took hours to perfect, and anything else that went into achieving your degree. It’s important and you should show it off as a sense of pride. 

Diploma frames also help you establish credibility. If you plan on being a doctor or dentist with your own practice, you can hang all of your degrees around the office to tell your clients the kind of educational background you possess. They will find solace in knowing you have an extensive background and are adequately fit and prepared for the job. 

Another factor is money -- maybe you paid for your college, or your parents, or even a mixture of you and your family members. Education is not cheap and lots of money was funneled into your degree through not only tuition, but also room and board, books, extra fees and expenses, and much more. Buying a frame and showing off your accomplishment honors yourself while paying homage and showing appreciation for those that helped you along your journey. 

Lastly, college is a memorable experience. For many of us, these are the years that shaped us into the person we are today. College revealed our passions, our destination in life, our true self, what our goals are in life, and through the ups and downs, it was all worth it in the end. Most people will look back on their four years with great fondness and memories they will never forget. Hanging your diploma only reinforces these memories and helps us reminisce on the good times. 

With these options, you are sure to find the right frame for you! Once you have the accurate measurements down, you will be on your way to selecting a beautiful frame. On behalf of us, happy graduation, you did it!
