Welcome to dickblick
Crisp and simplistic, Archival Gallery Collection frames are black, set off by a dramatic white mat. The look is clean and distinctive, perfect for both colored and black-and-white photography. Use them also for prints and other paper-based works.
Mats are 100% archival, museum quality rag, with the extra protection of Artcare technology to protect your artwork from pollution damage and acid degradation.
Frame Depth — The depth of a frame refers to the depth of the frame's rabbet (the cut-out area behind the frame's molding that holds your artwork in place). To find a frame that will accommodate your artwork, measure the depth of the artwork, including any matting or mounting materials, and order a frame with a depth that is, at a minimum, the same as that measured depth.
Frame Dimensions — Frames are sized by the opening, not by the outside of the molding. To determine the size of frame to order, measure the outside of your artwork, including mat, and order that size frame. The frame will overlap your artwork ¼" all the way around, so your artwork will fit nicely behind the frame's molding.

Great frames, great service
Comments about Nielsen Bainbridge Archival Gallery Frames:
Looks great from the front. I do wish the mat opening wasn't exactly centered; but I realize by doing so the frame can be hung either vertically or horizontally. The back is less than gallery quality (the hardware is a dead giveaway), but for a quick, off-the-shelf solution you can't beat this. Using for an upcoming show.And a shout-out to Blick: one of the three frames I ordered arrived with the glass shattered. I called them and they sent out a replacement immediately, even before I had sent them the photo of the damaged frame. Customer for life!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Quality has deteriorated dramatically from years past
By Steve B.
I have used these NB Archival Gallery Frames for years and have been completely satisfied. My older frames were very good quality, both materials and construction. However, my most recent purchase (8 frames) of the 16x20 size were a huge disappointment. The corners were poorly mated with gaps in at least one corner on each frame, scratches on the black finish (under the protective factory wrapping) and a new style backing that I found inferior to the old style clips. When held side by side with my older Archival Gallery frames, the quality difference is obvious and look like they are made by two different companies. Blame NielsenBainbridge quality control, not Blick. Blick's customer service is the best of any company with which I've ever dealt.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great frame for an economical price
By KL Makes Things Pretty
from Kennesaw, GA
I frame a considerable amount of art for our office and clients. I've done everything from highly custom shadowbox frames to just cutting a matte by hand to make use of a off-the-shelf frame. The Neilsen Banibridge Archival Gallery frame is perfect for this project. I have 8 art prints that will be acquired over two years. I purchased all 8 frames at once on a recommendation from the artist who was using them for his own set of prints. I knew ordering frames online can be risky. Only one was damaged in shipping. HOWEVER customer service from Dick Blick was AMAZING. No waiting on hold, no voicemail maze to talk to a customer service rep. The rep was so helpful and I received my replacement within a day. This was a GREAT transaction. My only problem will be SAVING these frames until I get all 8 pieces of art and not using them for other projects.
Best in Frames!
from Miami. FL
I've been ordering frames from Blick for a few years now. They always deliver in a timely manner and the product is sturdy, durable and exactly what I need. It has a large mat which is perfect for signatures and/or messages.

Impressive frame and heavy matt that lets your image take center stage. Glass protects image from most damage due to light.
Fine frames and mats
from New York city
These Nielsen Bainbridge frames are perfect for photos or artwork on paper such as drawings and collages. Gallery or museum quality. Classic style too.
Beautiful Frames & a Beautiful Price
from Beaumont, Texas
I'm a semi-professioanl photographer, and found these frames to be of excellent quality for the cost. They are non-distracting, highlighting the art within. Elegant simplicity.
superb frames - they enhance my photos
from Los Angeles CA
These Bainbridge Archival Gallery frames are superb. They are easy to use, and look like professional framing jobs. I've orderd these before, and the always get to me in perfect condition.
nice design, but glass was defective
from Chicago, IL
I really like the beveled design, but the glass was scratched up or perhaps the UV coating was applied poorly because in certain lights, the glass is far from crystal clear after cleaning with windex several times and even trying goo gone.

Great Frames, Great Service, Great Price
The frames w/mats are professional in every way, from the ease of mounting photographs, to the archival quality, the UV protection, and the aesthetically cut mats. I could not be happier. And the packing was excellent; all the frames arrived in perfect condition.
