Graduation from UGA is quite an accomplishment, and our frames are a great way to commemorate it. We have been framing UGA diplomas for 45 years. Over time we realized that we were repeating a lot of similar designs, so our designers got together to create several unique diploma frames that students could purchase ready made and install for themselves. Through customer feedback and attention to the smallest details, we were able to create beautiful diploma frames that really stood out among other companies.
All of our designs have 11 x 13 inch openings to fit standard diplomas. Our double mats with red and black core on the bottom make the diploma pop, and the sharp black bevel against the diploma really finishes the look. The red also brings out the red UGA seal!
We offer several variations of our designs from traditional layouts to more bold designs that include iconic UGA images such as the Arch and Sanford Stadium. We have also been able to grow our collection with images from local Athens artists. Our newest designs feature images from local artist Jill Liete, including the Terry College of Business, the School fo Veterinary Medicine, Joseph Lumpkin School of Law, Warnell School of Forestry, the UGA Pharmacy School, and the School of Agriculture. With all of the choices we offer, graduates can find a design that is perfect for them. We also have layouts that include a special place for your tassel. Our customers are also able to choose between a mahogany or a black frame to make sure the look is just right for them. These frames are of excellent quality and are interchangeable for all of the designs.
Our frames come with everything needed to install the diploma yourself, including bendable tabs and acid free hinging tape. All of our materials are archival to ensure the diploma is protected over time. The frames are ready to hang with a wire system and a 30 lb hanger. We want to make sure that the process is made easy for anyone. However, we also offer the option to have you diploma dry mounted and installed for you. This includes removing any dust, all of the fitting, and a dust cover on the back of the frame so that all that is left for you to do is find the perfect spot to hang it!
One of the best things about our hand-crafted UGA diploma frames is that we can offer them at great prices. After perfecting our designs, we chose the two most popular frames. We can now order the moldings for those frames in bulk to alleviate some of the cost. Though we are a small, local Athens company, we produce the frames in bulk quantities to save production time. Because of this, we are able to pass the savings along to our customers with special prices that are 25% below our regular price.
We have all of our diploma frames proudly displayed in our store on Epps Bridge, so feel free to come by and see for yourself which UGA diploma frame is right for you! Whether you’re a recent graduate or looking for a gift to honor a recent grad, we here at Athens Art and Frame would love the opportunity to share our designs with you. So, to all those UGA seniors going into your final stretch before graduation, good luck, and we hope to see you soon!
