The staff of the Village Framer collectively has more than 75 years of experience in the industry. The owner, Melissa Cusano and the manager, Elizabeth Norman have both received one of the highest distinctions in the custom framing industry: acquiring a CPF (Certified Picture Framer) designation through the Professional Picture Framer’s Association. This was achieved after having successfully passed a rigorous 3 1/2 hour exam covering engineering, chemistry and more. Fewer than 150 framers in the country currently hold this designation.
The staff of The Village Framer is continually educating themselves on the latest in design and technology in the framing industry. This includes reading periodicals and attending seminars & tradeshows. The entire staff attended the industry’s premier show, Décor Expo, in New York, and most recently WCAF in Las Vegas in January 2015.
