This frame is an ideal choice for displaying your latest certificate of accomplishment. It marries stately looks and solid construction with low cost, resulting in an incredible bargain.

The frame itself is not actually made of wood, but is a very capable facsimile. Short of taking the frame off your wall and examining it carefully, the average visitor to your home or office should not notice that the frame is some sort of composite material with a wood appliqué. The quality of the materials is solid, the corner seams line up perfectly, and the backing material/stand is by no means flimsy. Also worthy of note is that the front pane is real glass, not plastic. (My first frame arrived with a broken pane but Amazon replaced it immediately and easily, NO HASSLE! I clicked "return" online and set the box on my doorstep for UPS to pick up- that's it! I didn't even have to print a return label.)

The product is identical to the image provided by Amazon. The "rosewood", as the name implies, has a deep burgundy tone. There is a solid black accent bar around the frame, which is fairly visible in the product picture. The main matte is also black, with a thin burgundy accent at the inner rim, also somewhat visible in the product photo. I used this frame for a crème-coloured certificate and the colours compliment perfectly.

I only had one small and easily-fixed problem. The back stand is thick and sturdy- great for displaying on a bookshelf. However, when mounting on a wall, it had a tendency to push one corner of the frame away from the wall, which was quite undesirable. Two pieces of scotch tape secured the stand and cured the issue entirely.

Overall, I'm extremely pleased with this frame. At ~$15 and free shipping at time of purchase, it was an absolute bargain as compared to spending far more on a "professional" frame job. And the quality of the look and feel will rival frames that sell for two and three times as much at a local store. I, for one, would gladly buy again.

very nice looking frame for a great price!

not the highest quality--but worth the price paid for sure.

the 11x14 is the actual frame size, not the size of the document....

This is a nice-looking frame, 11x14 outside dimensions, with a two-colored (black and maroon) mat. If you use the inner maroon border, the mat is 8x10 1/2. Without the inner maroon border, the mat is 8 1/2 x 11. It has a modestly elegant appearance. The faux wood is rosewood. It's really plastic, but you can't tell unless you're up pretty close.
It has a stand for placement on a counter or table, and hooks for hanging on the wall. It hangs flat if you tape the stand down.
There are more elegant frames available for more money - I'd give them five stars. This one I give four, though I don't think you'll do better for $25.

I was wary of buying a frame online...I was very disappointed last time with a flimsy little plastic thing. This one is very classy. Beautiful wood, real glass. The mat is thin cardboard, but does the job. For the price, this is excellent.

This frame arrived broken due to poor packaging. But it's looking nice. Again it's broken so I can see what's inside. It's actually not a wood frame opposed to the description. It's made of some light material covered with a paint so it looks like a wood frame. But it's nice for the price and perfect for my diploma so I just ordered a replacement for it.

Update: I just got a replacement and it seems to be from a different batch. It is definitely heavier (so I would think the material is different, but I can not say it is wood), the labels are different, and it's packaged in an individual carton box. The packaging this time was good.

I ordered this product because it looked really nice online and I thought it would supplement my diploma well. However, upon arrival, the frame was broken at the corner where the two ends meet. I informed the company about this issue and they sent me a replacement. To my dismay, the replacement was even worse! Two of the corners were disjoined and there was a big gash in the middle of the frame! When I brought this to the attention of customer service the lady hung up on me! They have also been unresponsive to emails.

I know this isn't Amazon's fault, but Amazon should not let such poor vendors sell on their website!

this is my second purchase. Frames came on time, well packed. (was nervous) about breakage during shipping. Great look for desk or wall. Used for College Deplomas. Looks professional (not cheap).

I ordered two of these. When they arrived, I immediately saw that one was broken and completely unusable. The other looked fine to me so I sent the broken one back for a replacement. Meanwhile, I took a closer look at the frame that I thought was fine and saw that it also had a crack in the corner. The replacement frame arrived broken as well. I am sending both frames back for a refund.

bought this back in march and didn't open it until recently and the frame was broken, as well as the glass. I figured it was my fault since I left in around for 2 months before opening the package. I bought the exact same frame again, only to receive it broken AGAIN! It came out of the package broken and crumbled... the frame is not wood at all but rather some cheap plastic foam like material with a wood finish. Waste of money twice, and I still need to buy another frame. BTW the shipping package does not even say fragile or any warnings of glass inside, which is probably why everything was broken inside.

This is a really nice frame (for the price) that looks great except that it hangs crooked on a wall. This is due to the hanging hook not being offset enough to account for the heavy cardboard easel stand on the back. I guess you could tear that off if you don't plan on displaying your frame on a table but for that, I dinged it 1 star.
