I sent off my application for DXCC this week. I understand the certificate is now 11"X14", correct?

What about the Diamond DXCC certificate? I'd like to order several frames for these and future certificates and want to make sure I get the right size. Any recommendations for nice looking frames?

And while I'm asking questions, do you have any recommendations for QSL card portfolios - notebooks for storing and displaying cards?

8.5 X 11 For the Diamond DXCC

I usually get standard black frames for 8.5 X 11 certs. 

For DXCC I get black framed (glass on both sides).  It makes it easier to take the cert out when I need to add an endorsement.

I use the "unfinished" look frames.  Whatever you decide on, buy enough, so that if you get a new certificate later, you wont have to look everwhere to try and match your existing frames.

I use 3 ring binders for QSL cards, and I like the 4 pocket Mylar sheets that postcard collectors use. A Google search will find several sources.

I second AD9DX as mine is 8.5x11 as well.

This place has a high review score on Eham. They supply the sleeves, you supply the 3 ring notebook.

There used to be a store that sold a notebook with "QSL Organizer" imprinted on the front, but I haven't seen it available in quite a while. In any case, any good 3 ring binder will do.

To display on walls try:

I hope this helps.

I put mine in a matted 8.5 x 11 frame.

Unfortunately, Michaels doesn't list product numbers on their web site, but the label on mine says

146227

00100 71915

The certificate looks really good in this frame. 

FYI, they haven't mailed the endorsement stickers yet.  They decided that it was a better to send them out in a bulk mailing--a change from the initial announcement.

Does anyone know how big the standard DXCC certificate is? I'm away from home and wanted to order a frame for mine.

I am sitting at my desk with the actual paper that I received.  It was not altered in any form by me.  It measures 11 inches high by 14 inches long.  I measured it twice to be sure.

I can only speak for what I got but that's what I got.   Smiley

Yup. 11x14. You fellows know the size of ARRL's certificates better than ARRL does. Wink
