Blackbird treats each client with unmatched service and integrity. Owner, S. Fernando Mastroianni says, “It’s in both my nature and my interest to develop long-lasting relationships based on trust and top-notch customer service with a strong value proposition for the end customer. His business philosophy is simple, “service, service, service and all else will follow.”
Fernando started in the Wall Decor / Picture Framing Industry in 1990 as a regional sales representative in New York City for Larson Juhl. He was later recruited by Crescent Cardboard Company, the premiere matboard manufacturer in Wheeling, IL for International Sales expansion. He also worked for Roma Moulding and Universal Arquati.
In 2006 he started his own company, CPF Service, as a wholesaler in West Lakeview. In 2009 the business was moved to Ravenswood and renamed Blackbird Gallery and Framing.
