Welcome to dickblick
Get a custom look frame for a fraction of the price. Frame artwork, photographs, and more to any full inch size from 8” to 40”. These durable anodized aluminum mouldings are the same quality utilized by custom picture framers and are easy to assemble.
Two kits are required to assemble a rectangular frame. The beveled face of each moulding section measures 5/16” in width with a depth of 7/16”. The resulting frame can hold a print, protective glazing, and up to two mats, one of which acts as the backing.
To create a custom frame, simply measure the overall height and width from the outside edges of your work. Choose one size kit for length and one size for width, and assemble your frame with the included hardware. Corner angles, eyelet hangers, and spring clips are included with the kit. Cut mats to full inch sizes so that they fit snugly behind the beveled front face. You'll need to provide two mats, glass or glazing material, picture wire, and backing paper (to protect the mat) if desired.
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.

I frame my own craft work and found this website to be the best ever and very easy to use. The frame went together beautifully and my work looks great. Will buy future frames as I complete the other work. I have already recommended this site to several gals who also do crafting.

IMy Favorite Frame
from Huron, OH
I have used Nielsen frames for many years to frame art prints as well as needlework. They are not the cheapest frames on the market but they are easy to assemble, durable, and attractive in themselves without detracting from the art. I recommend them without reservation. You will not be disappointed.

It's great to find a company that sells such a wide range of framing material with so many different sizes.
Nielsen frames simple, clean lines
By Solo show painter
from Catskills NY
Abstract oil paintings based on nature can present a framing challenge, especially in economy frames. Nielsen frames are a fine solution, simple clean line that does not compete with the artwork. For shows, you can achieve a uniform look at low cost. Photographer friends have long made these frames their go-to and they also work well with most abstract painting. I especially like the flexibility in size and ease of assembly.

I have used Nielsen Bainbridge Metal frames many times before this last purchase. I love the look of the frame with my penciled wildlife artwork as well as the choices in sizes which will fit non-standard size artwork. Also, they are so easy to assemble.
