I have been meaning to get my dental diploma framed for months. We kept putting it off until we saw a sale at Michael’s for 50% off custom framing. I was so happy because I was able to get exactly what I wanted while still staying within the price range I expected. Framing is expensive!


I was overall pleased with the results. It took a long time for me to choose. I knew I wanted to accent the gold in the lettering and use some black to make it pop, not to mention using the Hawkeye Black and Gold.


I wonder if it is a little funky and out there for something that should be quite professional? But, I figured…this represents 4 years of my life, $200K, and a big part of me. It will be in my office on my wall for the rest of my life. So, might as well make it something I like.


I splurged and got a velvet-black matting that really makes it pop. We also sprung for the huge custom frame, multiple layered matting, and the best non-glare glass.


Can’t wait to have a place to put it.

A degree like that deserves a frame like that.
