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.

Comments about Nielsen Bainbridge Frame Kits:
The frames are great and easy to use. The only thing I do not like about them is the connections for the wire to hang the art work but I suppose it is better if it is snug rather than loose.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Solid; easy assembly
The only DIY frame I'll ever use. Great quality; low price is a bonus. With adequate foamcore backing, mat board, and glass, you can't go wrong. A totally solid frame. I have not, nor will I ever pay the ridiculous prices charged by a professional framer. With these, it's a 'no-brainer'.
from Waterford Michigan
Well pleased with product.
I would buy this product again.
from Cincinnati, OH
I have assembled similar metal frames in the past. This frame went together easily except for the hanging bracket which does not slide in like others I have assembled.
Best metal frame
The precision of the cutting for the corners is second to none. These frames fit together with perfection. I have tried others and they are OK, but iff you are looking for perfection, pay a little extra and go for a Nielson frame.
They look great!
Very easy to work with, had no problems at all. My husband thought he was going to put them together, but when he came home they were already on the wall. He has commented more than once, how nice they look. Very pleased, would buy again.
Just ordered twice as many!
from Point Pleasant Beach NJ
Already reviewed, hung for display in Boro Hall...They want more, so I need more! They were a snap to assemble, and look fabulous! I knew I'd be ordering more, just didn't think it would be so soon! Again, wish they went up to 48" Hint, hint!
Great place for metal framing supplies
from Bakersfield CA
Perfect solution to photographic frames
I want more!
from Point PLeasant Beach, NJ
Snap to assemble, give the appearance and feel of high quality, and just make the art more beautiful! Wish they had longer lengths, at least to 48"? That would be perfect! Will definitely be ordering more
Blick is my go-to source for Nielsen metal frames
When you want consistency in the appearance of your art displays, the Nielsen metal frames is the way to go. Not sure what the supply problems are, but unfortunately Blick had temporarily run out of several sizes and I had to find another source online, since I was up against a deadline. But I'll always start with Blick, where I also get mats, foam core, bamboo frames, etc.
