Certified Picture Framer on Staff

Melissa Contreraz of Rimrock Art & Frame in Billings, completed the Certified Picture Framer® (CPF®) examination in Las Vegas in January, 2016.  The CPF® examination was developed in 1986 in conjunction with Educational Testing Services (ETS) to provide professional recognition to individuals successfully completing the established criteria.

The CPF® designation shows distinction as a certified picture framer by achieving a standard of excellence that can be trusted throughout the industry. Individuals with the CPF® designation gain professional recognition from colleagues, employees, and customers. Certification is available to custom picture framers around the world, with testing available in Imperial and Metric options.

The CPF® examination takes 3 ½ hours and covers subjects including conservation and preservation framing, glazing, matting, mounting, handling, hinging, textiles, storage, restoration and environmental considerations. According to Melissa, “Artwork and family heirlooms are so important to me. It’s my job, and my obsession really, to do everything I can to create a frame package that will preserve them for generations to come.”

Melissa has a B.A. degree from Montana State University Billings in Art and has worked in the custom framing industry since 1997.  She joined the Rimrock Art & Frame staff in September, 2012.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that
I'm totally confused .. Any ideas? Many thanks!

Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much about this, like you wrote
the e book in it or something. I believe that you simply can do with some p.c.
to power the message house a little bit, however instead of that,
this is wonderful blog. A great read. I'll definitely be back.

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd
ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
My site addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and
I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?

I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future
but I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.

P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had
to ask! Quest bars cheap fitnesstipsnew1 quest bars cheap 516999410492780544 quest bars cheap
