What is a Certified Picture Framer?


The Professional Picture Framing Association, the largest international trade organization for the framing industry, grants certification to framers who have demonstrated outstanding knowledge and ability by attending classes and workshops on museum-quality archival framing, passing comprehensive written examinations and hands-on framing assignments. Only 3,000 framers worldwide have received this prestigious designation.
