The Guild Commended Framer qualification is recognised worldwide as the prime qualification for picture framers. This gives framers the opportunity to prove the quality of their skills and demonstrate specialist techniques, such as textile framing and mount design.
Guild standards have been developed by and for the industry, and are designed to protect consumers' art, as well as providing clear guidelines for manufacturers, framers, publishers and fine art printers. The Guild's high standards for framing and framing products, such as mountboard and tape, enable framers and their customers to trade with absolute confidence.
Guild members agree to abide by the Code of Ethics and keep up to date with the latest standards, trends and materials. The Guild also provides standards and qualifications development, dispute mediation, merchant services cost savings and specialist information.

The Guild celebrated its Centenary in 2010. That's over 100 years of supporting the art and framing industry. We're proud to be members and proud to pass on to all our customers the assurances and guarantees our membership offers.
