In the Nielsen Bainbridge Studio Collection, each archival metal frame includes an Artcare 4-ply frost white mat, an Artcare 2-ply Mountboard, and UV glass. The flat top profile offers an anodized matte finish with brushed side walls.
Artcare - The patented Artcare framing system protects your treasured photographs from fading and discoloring. Artcare Archical Mountboard protects photos from discoloration caused by common pollutants entering the back of the frame. Artcare Archival Matboard protects photos from discoloration caused by common pollutants entering along the glass edge. UV Glass protects photographs from fading and damage caused by UV light. The Frame is constructed of the highest quality materials and workmanship.
Rabbet Depth - The rabbet is the recess on the back inside edge of the frame, into which the artwork fits. To find a frame that works for you, measure the depth of your artwork, including any matting or mounting materials, and order a frame with a rabbet depth that is, at least the same as that measured depth.
Note - 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 about a quarter inch all the way around, so your artwork will fit securely behind the frame's molding.
