Photographers Count on Metal Frames

At American®Frame, we have the right picture frame and accessories for every type of art. But professional photographers all know one secret: metal frames are their best friend.
Our sturdy American-made Nielsen® metal frames are an affordable option for framing your photography for exhibit or resale. They are conservation quality, light but sturdy, easy to assemble, extremely versatile and 100% recyclable.
Best of all, metal frames are easy to replace. If your frame becomes scuffed, broken, or dented en route to a show, it’s simple to replace just the damaged section of the frame with only a screwdriver.
These classic picture frames are also perfect for conservation framing, as aluminum does not outgas or contain acids. Aluminum will not warp, shrink or twist, making it ideal for large-sized images, humid conditions and commercial applications.
Metal frames also add instant elegance to your work that helps you stand out in a gallery show and look professional to a resale customer. Their anodized finishes offer a sleek, flawless, and strong surface available in a variety of colors, textures, shapes, sheens, and depths to meet your unique needs. And with our PrecisionCut™ technology, you’ll be sure your metal picture frames’ corners are flawlessly cut to within 1/16th of an inch.
6-ply and 8-ply mat board
Your metal frame kit will arrive with the hardware necessary to assemble it. You can also easily add a mat, acrylic, or mounting board to your custom frame package. For added style, we suggest a 6 or 8 ply mat for added depth and dimension.
