Graduation Day Framing

cap-and-gown In a month or so we’ll begin hearing “Pomp and Circumstance” playing everywhere as schools all over the country engage in their yearly graduation ceremonies. Whether from high school, college or post college masters and PhD programes, graduation is something to celebrate and remember. It’s an accomplishment and a milestone in one’s life. Photos of the event should most certainly be taken and displayed proudly by the family and friends of the graduate as well as the graduate themselves.

At Frame USA we have all kinds of frames that are perfect for framing your graduation memories. If you’re a parent and you’ve snapped a bunch of pictures of your child walking across the stage in their cap and gown, receiving their diploma, you can get smaller, table sized frames to set them on. A good one for this purpose is our Corporate series. It has a flat profile but comes in a variety of colors. You can pick up a few in 8×10 size, which come with an easel to set them on a table or shelf, and show the progression from your graduate sitting with their class, all the way up through them waving to you from the stage.

They’re available in bright, simple colors like yellow, green, red, blue and orange and come in a regular and wide profile. They’ve got a fun flair to them that says, “I took my education seriously, but had fun doing it.”

ceremony is over, you might want to hang that on the wall above the TV, sofa, or fireplace. You need a picture frame that’s a little larger and a little more decorative. Our Classic series comes in 3 dark brown finishes and has a slight scoop and bevel. It’s still a simple frame–nothing too fancy–but has a more elegant feel than a flat profile frame. It is perfect for a larger, portrait sized photo at 11×14 or even 16×20.

When you’re the one who’s just graduated you probably want to show off your new diploma. You want a mature, classy frame that says, “I worked hard and persevered and this is the result.” We have frames that are specific to diplomas as well as frames that have a sober, serious look.

Decorating a Home Office with Oak Picture Frames

Wood frames add the perfect addition to a room that is filled with ambiance. When walking into a home office, bare walls and desks simply do not allow a person to be creative. Not only are they plain, but there is no substance to the room. However, when a room is filled with memories, accomplishments and family photos, it will help a person feel more motivated to start the work day and overcome their daily struggles by remembering accomplishments of the past.

The Coveted Diploma

Diploma Frames A diploma screams accomplishment and shows that a person is willing to sacrifice and work hard to become knowledgeable in their career. Letting a diploma collect dust in a closet is simply not an option. With oak picture frames, it is possible to display a diploma as the focal point of the office. This allows a person to remember that they have the skills and knowledge to provide the utmost service to their customers and clients.
Oaks come in cherry, honey and natural colors. Cherry is among the most popular and will provide a very professional look. With diplomas, the average 4×6 picture frames will not work. Instead, a person will need to know the size of their diploma. Common sizes include:

  • 11×14
  • 11×17

Awards and Certifications

Frame USA Picture Frames Used On The Bachelor Awards and certifications are also welcomed additions to a room. With wood picture frames, it is possible to make a collage of prints to remember all of the accomplishments you have had. The goal is to show your knowledge and a good way to do this is through art stories. A neat idea is to use one of each color frame to increase the importance of a certification. Perhaps you want to display your least important certification with the natural color, the second most important in honey and the most rewarding in the cherry color. The choice is yours, but oak picture frames are always a big hit with certifications. If you want, there are also specific certificate frames to can be used.

Family or Event Photos

Photos of events or family members can be placed on desks or above computers to act as a source of motivation throughout the day. While there are many ways to display these photos, the most common are:

  • Placing a 4×6 picture frame right next to a computer monitor or on an office desk.
  • Placing framed pictures right above a desk so that they are frequently seen.
  • Placing a plethora of smaller pictures on one wall to create a collage of sorts for the events that have been attended.

Lighter colored frames tend to work best when placed near darker desks to ensure that they add a little bit of light to the room.
