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.

Simple easy framing alternative
By $6M Steve Austin
from Louisville, KY
Comments about Nielsen Bainbridge Frame Kits:
These high-quality frames provide a very economical alternative to professional framing. The items come out with a clean, modern, attractive look for a fraction of what you would otherwise spend. You can get glass custom-made for them cheaply, add in an easily-cut DIY foamcore board backing and you're good to go, all you need. It's a very easy < 10 minute project. They are particularly useful for posters and projects with non-standard dimensions.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

These Nielsen frames are always exactly machined with perfect corners. And Blick makes it easy to shop and effortless to order.

The Bainbridge frame kits are uniformly of top quality.Blick's delivery and customer service were also top rate.I would like to see Blick carry separately purchasable frame connector kits. (These were included in the frame lits, but seeom not to be available by themselves.)

My New Source of painting supplies
from Twisp , Wa
I have been buying frames (and I buy a large number every year) from a store 90 miles from our home) Their service is ok but usually do not get the orders correct and are very expensive) and I have to make a trio to pick them up. You were amazing to work with to set up an account and my order came to our home within a week. My husband has Alzheimers Disease and you have made my life easier. Should have been purchasing from you over the last years. Thank you. Ginger Reddington artist
