Displaying, Framing and Caring for your nikahnama
Now that your nikahnama is here, you’re not going to want to keep it in a mailing tube forever! Here are some tips for caring for your nikahnama on your wedding date, and beyond.

Displaying your nikahnama:
If you’re unable to find a readymade frame for your nikahnama, we usually recommend these two options:
1. Find a readymade frame you like that is larger than the size of your nikahnama, and purchase a custom matboard that will fit your nikahnama into the exact size of your chosen frame. Here are some sites where you can purchase an inexpensive custom matboard: FrameItEasy, Matboard And More, Frame Destination, or talk to your local framer!
This way, you can keep the nikahnama displayed in its frame, and remove it only when it’s time to sign.
2. The other option is to display it only in its matboard, and wait til after the nikah to have it custom framed.
Many clients find beautiful easels to display their nikahnama safely at their nikah.
Alternatively, others set up a small table meant specifically for signing their nikahnama.

Custom Framing your nikahnama
Custom framing provides a very finished look to your nikahnama, and also helps preserve it by keeping it in a vacuum-sealed, airtight frame. However because the frame is sealed shut, you should only custom frame your nikahnama after it’s been signed.
Here are some of the custom framing options we always recommend:
-Local framers are often the easiest and most hands-on option
-Framebridge is a custom framing site that many of our customers love! (See pictured)
-Level Frames can frame your nikahnama in their studio, or send a custom frame directly to you with everything needed for framing at home. That way you don't have to worry about your signed nikahnama getting lost in the mail!
