Meet Rick Badwey

Rick started Museum Framing in 1989 when he couldn't find a framing company who knew how to properly frame his collection of antique maps, unique coins, currency and historical manuscripts.

Rick's business grew to include fellow dealers and collectors. These contacts have allowed him to frame some of the rarest and most valuable artifacts.

Word spread and his archival framing business has grown to include well known museums, libraries and galleries as his clients.

However, many people came to Museum Framing to either frame their diplomas or examine their diploma frame purchased from the college store. Many noticed their diploma would either show signs of fading or toning.

A diploma is more than just a sheet of paper. It represents a large investment in time and money that needs and deserves full protection.

And Rick ensures the same materials he uses to frame rare and historical manuscripts and other artifacts are the same materials he uses to frame your diploma.

Why use such top of the line materials on my diploma?

Over the past 30 plus years of framing antique prints, maps, historical documents and other artifacts, we have seen many important items get damaged when framers use non archival materials.  Such harm is irreversible, meaning once the damage is done, it's virtually impossible or expensive to restore it.

Museum grade framing is critical in protecting, preserving and maintaining the condition of your diploma and other artifacts. From glazing to matting to backing, all of these components play a critical role in protecting your investment for many years.
