“Pete Weaver and the Pfortune Art & Design team epitomize what I look for in a business partner: commitment to product excellence, rock solid reliability and customer service that is exemplary. As a multi-award winning professional photographer and author, the need for me to be on my “A-game” far exceeds the capturing of images. Pete’s expert knowledge, competence and understanding of my work and vision have been a compliment to my art print business. As a result of more than 15 years of preparing my work for museum quality presentation my photographic prints can be found hanging in exhibition as well as corporate and private collections all over the world.
I first started using Pete and his company when I was living in Indianapolis. I was always welcomed to meet with him and explore various options for presenting my work. I continue to use Pete and Pfortune Art & Design in spite of my moving hundreds of miles and several states away. I find Pete to be of extraordinary character and passionate about his work. Those qualities are validated in the work he and his team put out. I am most pleased to say that I am a committed Pfortune Art & Design customer and I would highly recommend them to anyone.”

For the past ten years, they’ve done over 30 pieces for my home and office, and every single one has been great.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Pete and Pfortune Art & Design on numerous projects for many of their 15 years.

Many times, I just hand over the finish board for the project and Pete knows exactly what options I’m looking for….which has been fabulous!”

“Simply the best. Other than the frame, they cut “no corners.””
“I have known Pete and worked with Pfortune Art for about the last five years and every experience with Pete and the company has been nothing short of spectacular! From layout to mats to framing to service to super quick turnaround I give them an A+. I am super picky about who frames my art, because for better or worse lots of things I get framed are one of a kind racing photos, personalized autographs or memorabilia – there is no margin for error and these items cannot be damaged, misplaced or dog-eared. Every single piece Pfortune has framed for me has come back exactly how I wanted it and in perfect condition! And while I don’t mind paying a little more for perfection I am consistently amazed at the very reasonable prices on the end product when I go to pick them up. All around quality and personal care.”

“I have worked with Pete Weaver and Pfortune Art & Design for many, many years. Their work is of the highest quality. From selecting the art to framing and installation, they are helpful, hands on, and have the utmost professionalism.
They provided all of the beautiful artwork at our new facility in Lafayette, Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health Lafayette East in 2010. We used some stock art and also used local artists. Pete contacted the local artists, helped in the selection of the art and picked up the work to be framed and installed.
We have received many compliments on the finishes and the artwork.”

“My knowledge of Pete Weaver stretches back in time to when he wore his legendary skinny black leather tie on designer sales calls; a solid 20 years. Amazingly his dynamic personality hasn’t changed a bit.
Pete was one of the few sales reps in the day that really pounded the pavement for what he believed in. He was very passionate early on about art, and it’s not surprising that it has evolved into a proprietary business for him. He has an amazing ability to listen to people and decipher their needs weighed against budget constraints; and his solutions never cease to amaze me.
I highly recommend Pfortune Art to anyone that is looking for value, creative ideas, personal attention to details and a dose of Pete’s smile.”

It is my pleasure to give you a full and complete, unreserved endorsement.
I have done business with you now, easily, for more than a decade – professionally, in three office locations – and personally, in two homes – and in every instance have been completely satisfied. Not only has the work been beautiful, but the service has always gone above and beyond the call of duty. I have lost count of how many times you, and Pfortune Art & Design, have gone the extra mile – whether it be design services, delivery, or installation.
While Pfortune Art & Design has easily handled all of our corporate art needs with ease, aiding us in the selection, framing, and placement of pieces to enrich our offices – we have also been known to hand you some unusual challenges – always with splendid results. It’s not just anyone who can tackle framing a 3’x6’, hand woven, Navajo rug and then hang it 20 feet in the air!
Maybe the strongest indicator of my faith in you has been my willingness to entrust you with the care and handling of irreplaceable family treasures. From the restoration and archiving of our 200 year old Indiana Territory Map to the cleaning and preservation of fabric art created in the last century by my grandmother, every project is treated, from beginning to end, with the highest degree of professionalism and personal care that anyone could ask for.
Also, through it all, not only have you become our “go-to” source for all things art related, but I’ve also been pleased to count you as a friend, as well.
Best regards, and continued best wishes as you grow.”

It is a pleasure to work with Pete and I will never go anywhere else for my framing needs!”
