After a long, detour-filled journey, I finally completed all the requirements for my Bachelor’s degree last year. It’s not as though I work outside the home and actually need the degree to hold down a job or anything, but without it I always felt that something was missing in my life. So I chipped away at the requirements, took classes whenever I could, and earned my degree 10 years later than I should have.
Anyway, I was very proud of my accomplishment and decided to go all out by purchasing a nice frame for my degree. I first went to one of those do-it-yourself places at a strip mall by my house, but wasn’t able to find quality materials to work with. So next, I checked online and came across a site called FramingAchievement.com.
Framing Achievement had a great selection of diploma frames and personalization options, so I knew I had found an excellent site. The process of selecting a frame was very easy, too. First, I chose the frame style, e.g. single diploma, double diploma, tassel diploma frame, etc. (I went with the single). Then, I chose the kind of wood I wanted for the frame. This was the hardest part for me because I thought they all looked so nice. In the end, I decided to go with the glossy traditional mahogany frame because I think it’s very classy.
After that, I had to enter info about the size and orientation of my actual diploma. I ordered the frame before I received my degree, so I had to contact my school to get this data.
Finally, I chose a personalization option, which I had to pay extra for. (I decided to have a “Bachelor of Arts” seal etched into the glass.)
The whole thing cost me $119 plus shipping — a pretty reasonable price considering the quality. I now have my degree hanging on my office wall in its beautiful frame and couldn’t be happier! I recommend that you check out Framing Achievement the next time you need a high-quality document or photo frame.
