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.

Frames are fine - hangers are worthless
from Newton, MA
Comments about Nielsen Bainbridge Frame Kits:
The frame sticks themselves are a bit flimsier than the rest of the Nielsen line, which is fine with me. The attachment hardware is the same, but for some reason they chose to include an alternative wire-hook. The brackets used to attach a wire to the back of the frame are worthless - they slide up and down in the track easily. Unfortunately the typical omni-hanger brackets are extremely hard to find outside of a Nielsen whole-frame kit, and I had to rush-order them from another website to make the frame usable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I ordered frames online on a Monday. I had them by Wednesday. Extremely easy to put together. Final look is very classy and "uptown."
The go-to frames.

I always use Nielsen frames for my print exhibitions. They are simple to assemble, reliable and provide a professional look. I use a lot of different sizes for my etchings and monotypes and the fact that you can assemble ANY size frame is a gift. They are sturdy and reliable.
Nielsen Frames are my favorite for watercolors.

Nielsen Bainbridge frames from your company arrive in a timely manner and are always packed carefully for shipping. They are easy to assemble and look great on a watercolor without drawing attention away from the painting.
