about us

Evergreen Picture Framers Guild is a non-profit Corporation, registered in Washington, formed with the exclusive purpose of providing educational opportunities for Picture Framers and Galleries. Our goal is to help them become better custom framers and business persons.

Established in the 1970’ s as the MacCormick Club, EPFG has grown into an organization of over 100 picture framers, artists, galleries, and wholesalers who are dedicated to helping each other and providing continuing educational opportunities.

The basic requirement for membership is to be involved in the custom picture framing trade, either as a supplier, retailer, artist, gallery owner, or just someone interested in learning more about the art of framing. Annual dues are only $40.00, and the membership year begins in March.

FrankLarsonYou will receive the Guild’ s newsletter, which is presently emailed to about 425 shops and individuals throughout the United States and Canada. We also have 6 meetings each year, held in the Puget Sound area at one of the local member frame shops or suppliers, which you may attend at no charge. Each meeting provides an opportunity to socialize with other framers, and a program devoted to some aspect of picture framing, either technical or business oriented. Usually snacks are served, and the host provides an groupopportunity to tour their facility. One of these meetings is an annual Education Festival, with special classes, framing competition, guest instructors, a luncheon, awards, prizes, etc. A small additional charge for this day long program is required. The Guild also maintains an extensive lending library of reference books, video tapes, and gilding supplies which any member may check out for their use, paying only necessary postage. A great resource for those wanting to learn more about this business!
