What is a Certified Picture Framer (CPF)?
A Certified Picture Framer (CPF) is a professional with the experience and knowledge necessary to properly handle all your custom framing needs. An individual with a CPF designation has been actively involved in the business of picture framing for at least one year and has passed a comprehensive written examination covering the latest materials, techniques and design theories.

What can a CPF do for you?
With a thorough knowledge of up-to-date custom framing techniques and materials, a CPF can guide you through the selection of matting, frame moulding and design to give you the best possible presentation for any framing project.
Dedicated to staying abreast of changes and advances in the technical art of custom framing, a CPF can make recommendations for protecting and preserving your artwork and valuable items.
