Welcome to dickblick
No name in metal frames is more respected than Nielsen. These custom cut frame sections are shipped with all the hardware needed to easily build a beautiful and sturdy frame, using just a flat screwdriver.
Frame sections are cut to inch increments from 6" to 42" (15 cm to 107 cm).
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.
Nielsen Frame Sections are ordered in pairs of equal length. Each item you order is a pair, and two pairs complete a frame. Each order is shipped with all the hardware needed to easily build a beautiful and sturdy frame, using no tools other than a flat screwdriver. All Nielsen frame sections are cut to order. This custom work will increase the ship time of your order slightly.

Comments about Nielsen Bainbridge Nielsen Metal Frame Sections Anodic Black Style 93:
I had some odd-size pieces I wanted to display and found the cost for custom frames too high. The Nielsen frames were the perfect answer for my needs. Easy to put together and they match well with other frames I already own. The service from Blick was outstanding and the prices were fantastic! I'll shop here again.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

An excellent frame at an excellent price
I have been exhibiting my photographs since 1967. I do all my own matting and framing. The Nielson frames I have been using from Dick Blick are easy to assemble and have a classic look that will not go out of style. I've recently used the same frames for several museum exhibits, in the US and Europe.
Classic Frame with a great price
from Granville, OH
Perfect to have on hand in standard sizes for display. Easy to store, easy to assemble.As these are metal, you do need to store these with interleaving (stretch wrap,bubble, tissue paper) to keep the frames from scratching while not in use. Keep in mind the Anodic black is a glossy black color, but they do offer matte color options.
Nielsen auality is excellent
from Boston, MA
Museum quality frames for black & white photographs.
These frames are terrible. The hanging mechanism is totally useless. Do not buy. There are better metal frames at another online supplier.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have used and enjoyed Nielson metal frame sections for 18 years now. They are the only reasonable choice for many projects. I am a little disappointed in a small change made a few years ago to the formed, spring-load hanger, instead of the older screw-set type. No doubt this saves a few nickels, but the older sort was much easier (quicker) to install and adjust. I'd readily pay a little more for the older type.

We had a lot of lecture posters to frame and hang in a library, I loved that the frames were beautiful (no scratches or dings), and the joints lined up perfectly. Often economically priced frames do not line up well at the corners and these did beautifully.

1/2" and smaller depth
from Northern VA
Great value, but be aware of the dimensions. I ordered this for a standard 3/4" deep canvas, but even though the frame itself is 1" deep, it only accomodates 1/2" and thinner pieces, using spring clips to affix.
