Are All Your Metal Frames from Nielsen? – Answer to Your Question

Are oversize metal frames available for DIY picture framing? American Frame answers your questions about framing oversize artwork.

Q: Hi,
I assume all your metal frames are Nielsen frames? I know Nielsen frames come in two grades – one is a heavier weight and the other is a much lighter weight frame (OEM I believe is the lighter weight).    Which do you carry?

A: Yes, we do carry  Nielsen metal frames . We have one profile that is the lighter weight (OEM) http://www.americanframe.com/departments/metal-picture-frames/metal-picture-frame-collections/pro-line.aspx
The rest of the profiles (except for our shadowbox frame) are the heavier gauge Nielsen frames.
