What PPFA Members Say...

PPFA is so very much more than just an association, for me it is great people who eventually become true friends, educational growth in this industry you can't get anywhere else, and leadership training that has helped me in many areas of my daily life. I try to share how important it is to be involved in PPFA more often than just paying dues and putting that new PPFA member sticker on your shop window.
  ~ Jini Lumsden, MCPF, The Art Shop

I’ve been on my local Chapter board for two years and have gotten tons of benefits – from top-notch education to networking with my peers.
  ~ Kathy Wymore, Out on a Whim Custom Framing

The PPFA International Framing Competition is one of the best ways to attract free publicity for your store. It is also an incredible learning experience.
  ~ Barb Pelton, MCPF, Artfully Framed

I switched to Meadowbrook Insurance Group through PPFA and saved enough money to pay my PPFA dues for the next four years.
  ~Gene Ausili, CPF, The Picture Show

In addition to the educational benefits, the CPF program brought an unexpected but pleasant surprise. We mentioned it on the website, and were surprised to see a large increase in traffic.
  ~ Andrew Langlois, CPF, Get the Picture

PPFA Find A Picture Framer consumer website has brought in multiple leads. It's a very good benefit for members. The site brings in real leads and people with real money to spend
  ~ Mike Labbe, Get The Picture

It was a great time at the Chapter Leaders Conference -- I found such inspiration.
  ~ Gregg Carner, CPF, Brinks Art & Frame Shop

It was great seeing everyone and renewing friendships, one of the major benefits of being a member and attending conferences and sessions.
  ~ George Alvarez, MCPF, framestudio

I am a fan of PPFA/PostcardBuilder and have only scratched the surface of the services they provide. It truly is a great service offered by PPFA that everyone should take advantage of.
  ~ Letha Drury, South Hill Gallery
