Diploma Installation

Installing your diploma can be easy and does not require any special tools - a flat head screw driver and a phillips head screw driver can make installation easier - please follow these simple steps.

Step 1
Carefully remove your diploma from its tube. Spread it out on a clean, flat surface with some weigths on top - let stand, with weigths on top for several hours or over night. This will relax the paper and make it much easier to install.


Step 2
Turn your frame over on to a flat surface and bend up the bendable tabs on the back. You may want to use a flat head screw driver to protect your finger nails. It may be easier, on some of the larger frames, to remove one side of the hanging wire - this takes a phillips head srew driver.
Step 3
Remove the backing and the mat from the frame. Your glass has been pre-cleaned and does not need to be removed. Position your diploma in the mats opening - the mat has been cut with plenty of overlap.
Step 4
Using the provided acid free tape, mount your diploma to the mat - only at the top. Your diploma needs room to expand and contract. If you tape at the top and bottom, it may wrinkle in the frame.
Step 5
Carefully slide the mat, with your diploma and backing, back into the frame - make sure the top of the diploma is positioned correctly with the wire. Bend down the tabs and replace the wire if removed, and your diploma is ready to hang.
