About Us: Testimonials
"I couldn't be happier with my decision to be in the framing business" states Joe Courchaine sole proprietor of Great River Framing. Open now slightly over a year, the business continues to grow. While difficulty in site selection pushed the opening date of this shop past its target, it was worth the wait. When compared to similar start-ups in the industry, this new shop has a leg up due to its superior location. Prestige Framing Academy, LLC provided locationing expertise in addition to other services to insure the success of Great River Framing.

From an economic standpoint, we have been pleased with our increased revenue that the Larsen-Juhl custom framing line has brought to our bottom line. We have only been in the business of custom framing for about 1 - 1/2 years, but feel confident we are building toward higher profits.
I started the framing business about 7 months ago. I attended the Basic Framing class at Prestige Framing Academy. That was a great, beneficial experience. At the conclusion of that class, I was skeptical about spending the money for a consultant. Looking back, I can't imagine having started without Stuart's expertise. I remember unpacking the equipment and thinking several times, I'll never use that. I used all of those things in the first 2 months of operation. In addition, I don't remember needing anything, of any significance, that I didn't have. I'm sure that start-up time would have been much longer, more, costly mistakes would have been made, and there would have been a much higher level of frustration had I not hired Stuart. I believe it was a profitable decision.
