The Professional Picture Framers Association (PPFA) has launched a website for consumers, http://www.findapictureframer.com, featuring a searchable international database of custom framing experts - including Certified Picture Framers and Master Certified Picture Framers.
There are tips on hanging and displaying artwork; information on how to protect artwork from light, humidity, water, acid, mold, and bugs; and articles on framing silver heirlooms, ivory objects, wedding bouquets, diplomas, sports jerseys, military medals, and more.
"There's almost no limit to the things you can frame for your home or office or as a beautiful gift," says PPFA President Fran Gray, MCPF. "Stamp collections, christening gowns, baby shoes, photos, game-winning baseballs, Eagle Scout badges … and much more! A professional custom framer can protect, preserve, and present all your treasures in a beautifully designed custom frame or shadow box.
