Welcome to dickblick
EcoCare is as committed to environmental sustainability as it is to design aesthetics.
These tree-friendly EcoCare frames from Nielsen Bainbridge are made from sustainable wood alternatives and reclaimed plantation woods, which do not contribute to deforestation. All frames include a glass facing.
All elements are either recyclable or biodegradable, and the frame finish is waterbased and free of chemicals and solvents. Frames sized 8" × 10" and larger include an acid-free mat. The black frames are made from the wood of rubber trees, and the natural frames are made from bamboo.
The 5" × 7" and 8" × 10" frames feature an easel for table display as well as wall mounting.
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.

Bamboo Eco Care Frames - Excellent
from Grayslake, Illinois
Comments about Nielsen Bainbridge EcoCare Frames:
I bought 33 frames and they arrived quickly and well packed. The frames are quite nice, looking like a much more expensive frame. The bulk price was very good - these frames are quite a bargain.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Quality frame for a good price
from Skokie, IL
The major negative was the cut out matte needed to fit better within the frame. Because I purchased 10 frames, I noticed the outter diamensions of the mattes were not consistent, and moved around a bit too much.
Absolutely picture perfect!

I searched far and wide for the perfect, classy frame for my art photography. I wanted a frame that wouldn't break the bank but would look like I spent a fortune! Most importantly, I carefully assessed the details --I wanted a well made, environmentally friendly frame that looks like it could hang in a gallery. I bought several of these and I'll be buying them for years to come. They're perfect for my office, where I receive tons of compliments! I'd love them in larger sizes - fingers crossed!
Unsatisfying, especially at larger sizes
from Seattle, WA
These frames are really affordable, but it seems they're cutting corners in the QA department to make that price. The frames are all bent, warped or off-square to some degree and the acrylic and back often don't fit well as a result. The size of the frame seems to magnify these problems - 16x20 is unusable, 11x14 is barely acceptable, 8x10 seems OK. There are black paint flakes between the mat and acrylic. Also, the rivets of the hanging hardware in the back will press against your art and may cause damage unless you add a mounting board. The Tribeca frame by the same manufacturer is much, much nicer and includes a mounting board.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Nice Frames Especially for Price
The 8x10 size came with an easel stand, which I wasn't expecting. I'd prefer to have the option NOT to have the easel stand, but even so, they are a great buy.
Excellent frame for excellent price
The frames were all excellent quality and arrived without damage. Delivery was fast too!

It's hard to find a good frame made of good construction at these sizes with a mat included.
I would buy this product again and again.
By Judy the desert chick
from Maupin, OR
I have used these frames for art shows in the past framing 18 5 X 7 floral paintings using the 8 X 10 Eco frames and was delighted with the Bamboo finish. The same frame used for all those watercolor paintings looked really sharp in the Gallery show.I just ordered 9 Eco frames for another show using size 16 X 20, I had trouble with the Mocha wood frames as the glass was too tight in them. I finally got the glass out of one and took a paring knife and shaved the inside of the frame to get the glass back in. The other one I broke the glass getting it out and had to replace the glass. Even with this problem I would still use these frames.What I like about these frames for my watercolors is they have a mat, glass, backing with metal loops that I could put the wire for hanging on. The metal hooks work for either horizontal or vertical paintings.
Great, Simple, Frames
from Providence, RI
These are very good, simple, gallery frames that allow my framed photographs to speak for themselves. The fact that they come from a renewable source is an added plus. They are also solid wood, something it is difficult to find these days in the arts and crafts chain store. This makes it much easier to drill small guide holes in the frames to screw in eyelet screws and hang properly. I have bought many of them in the past and will continue to do so if the quality is maintained.
Bamboo frames Nielsen banbridge

from Johnson, vt.
I must say this is a good buy and also a neat package with the mattes etc.I prefer the acrylic glass compared to real glass due to shipping problems with glass and also a lighter product to deal with
