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.

Excellent Framing Solution
By Tally Joyce
from Tallahassee, FL
I use these frames for my watercolors. They are so easy to put together, it's ridiculous. They are lightweight and inexpensive; but deliver a nice professional look, allowing the artwork to be the focus of attention. I intend to use these for all of my work.
A little disappointing
from Seattle, WA
I always considered Nielsen to be the gold standard for do-it-yourself framing. It's been a few years since I've used them, so maybe something has changed. I was disappointed that when I assembled my frames, the miters were off so that I wasn't able to get perfect tight corners. No matter how carefully I screwed down the braces, there was a slight gap. They are useable but not up to the standard I would have wanted for a gallery show.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Tempe, AZ
These metal frames are easy to put together and can be made to fit just about any size you need. They make a nice unobtrusive frame that securely hold the glassworks pictures I make.
Nielsen - Bainbridge Frames
By Geezer 74
from Redmond, Oregon
In the past (10 - 12 yrs ago) I was forming my 13" x 19" images in 22" x 26" Nielsen- Bainbrige frames (currently have several hanging in my house), and after such a long time since printing/framing the last one, I was extremely happy to find that I could custom order the framing members directly from Blick.However, being able to order/obtain this specific size was only part of my experience. Upon receiving my initial order, on set of the frame members was not only the incorrect size, but also the correct color. Needless to say, I was NOT a "Happy Camper"!! I immediately contacted Blick via phone call and the situation was corrected immediately and the correct frame members were delivered to me the following day. You can't beat customer service like that anywhere!! Subsequently, I have recommended Blick to friends, and will most definitely purchase from them in the future.

Great Framing Product!
from Wynnewood, PA
I use these frames to save money on custom projects that are odd sizes and would cost a fortune to frame at an art store. The product is so easy to assemble. The company shipped quickly and it was packaged perfectly and arrived safe and sound.
