Does anyone have a website address for Nielsen framing company? I have been searching the net but there are several thousand addresses with reference to framing.
At one time LightImpressions carried a frame called Crimson red. It is not listed in the current catalog and of course I have some toned prints that need something other than the standard black or silver or in fact any other color except that shade. Looks great with the sample piece I have on hand.
I thought perhaps i could get in contact with them directly and they might know which of their customers would have that moulding, or if it is still available.
Thanks Cem. I have sent them an email. Hopelfully they will reply.
Just wanted to share my experience with Nielson. Got a reply back from then within hours this morning. Not good news for me; however, i was impressed that my email was recognized as important to one small customer. Certainly reinforces my continued use of their products. They don't act like a company with a majority of the metal framing market.
Maybe there is a little hope out there for "big business".
I' m not sure what the "Not good news" from Nielson was - but Graphic Dimensions Ltd., www.pictureframes.com , lists a "Lipstick Red" #CV7, in their "Carnival" collection.
I'm not familiar with this company, so caveat emptor.
Anyone had any experience with this outfit?
"Not good news", they no longer make the color i am looking for. It is very deep oxblood. Black with a warm under tone. I will check with this other company just for fun. However, Lipstick red sounds "red".
I'm a bit late to the short discussion here, but I thought I'd mention the Contemporary Frame company. They sell Nielsen frames, and they also offer their own more economical line of "house brand" frames in a few Nielsen-like styles and in a large variety of colors and finishes.
I just bought a dozen of their C911 frames, the same profile as the Nielson N11, in 13x15 lengths, and I'm really pleased with them. They are very precisely cut and are of very high quality. I can't directly compare them with Nielsen N11 since I've never bought any Nielsen frames, but I'd say you can't go wrong with these frames from Contemporary.
Their web site isn't much, just a place to register so you can download a PDF catalog of their stock. But they'll send you some color brochures if you call them. http://www.contemporaryframe.com/
thanks so much, better late than never. In fact, the timing is great.
Nielsen has been helpful, but they will not let me buy directly. Am spoiled and hate to pay retail, especially when I have a project that needs 10 22 X 28 frames.
I will give them a call, as the print is a little small for my "old eyes".

Look in the phone book or web for wholesalers that suppy frame shops with moulding. Often times they have "chop service," which means they will just cut and send you the rails. You can find them everywhere. You will be ordering about 8, 10 foot, sections. This is a significant order. I doubt you will have trouble getting somebody to fill an order this size. If you were going to buy one frame, they probably wouldn't do it, but for 10 they probably would. Don't pay retail for this. Don't forget to buy the "corners" to assemble the frames.
