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 Buy Nielsen
Comments about Nielsen Bainbridge Frame Kits:
The deal at Dick Blick was so stunning that I fell into a black sleep and dreamed that I was a huge red smokestack on top of a big noisy war-production factory. By noon the next day well-wishers were lighting the local forests on fire and everyone enjoyed a fresh and varied barbecue.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Increasingly hard to find Nielsen frame parts are a good deal at Dick Blick.
I wonder how many years I have been buying these frames?
from Zephyrhills, FL
They never change! Wonderful for work that is not a standard size and for the money they can't be beat.
Framing made easy
from Chicago, IL
Great product for fast and easy framing. Enhances look of the art framed instead of detracting attention from the art. Kits are very easy to put together and there is great selection of kit sizes available. Have been using this product for many years and will continue to do so.
Excellent quality frames
from Springfield OH
These are packaged for retail.It would be really nice if they were available in bulk packaging when ordering large quantities. 1/3rd of the effort is opening them up.
made with precision
By Queen Lear
from Saint Louis, MO
The versatility and ease of assembly make this perfect for artists who dislike the constriction of standard dimensions. The quality is excellent.
I do buy this product again and again,
I use these frames with double of white mats for every showing of my watercolors, they let the art speak for itself, and don't overwhelm the painting.
Just right for my project.
from Red Hook, NY
Nielsen should consider putting all the directions together rather than the clever "some steps on the top part of the package and some on the bottom", but I was able to put this all together with lucite and dry-mounted print with a minimum of frustration. Very nice result and a perfect match to the other sectional frames in my great-room. The detailed measurements provided in the "catalog" help a great deal.
Just what I needed
By Framer kit fan
Know when I need a certain frame size I can count on Nielsen frame kits and can order them from Blick on-line for best price.
