Frameless Picture and Clip Frame Accessories

Clip frames can be used to display posters, photographs, certificates and other artworks. They consist of a sandwich of glass (or plastic glazing), (sometimes mount board too) and backing board (hardboard or MDF). The sandwich is held together using metal clips. Tiny frames may utilise clips that don't lock in to the backing board, larger ones utilise swiss clips that lock into the backing board. If the swiss clip has a hanging facility, then the frame is usually hung via a centre clip on a nail or screw. Cord/wire  should not be strung between clips as this may lead to the clips coming off. Alternatively, D-rings can be attached to the backing board with bifurcated rivets to hang a clip frame.

We stock a variety of clips which can be used in frameless picture frames to create a sandwich of glass, mount, backing paper and backing board. We have a variety of frameless clips and swiss clips in different stlyes and sizes.

Frameless Picture Frames Accessories

Pictures can be hung on walls without frames. To do this, a sandwich of glass, mount, backing paper and backing board can be held together and directly hung on a wall. In order to do this, the sandwich has to be securely held together. This requires special frameless clips or swiss clips. The frameless clips are just steel sprung clips that can be opened with a pair of frameless clip levers or coins, and sprung into place to hold the sandwich together. Alternatively swiss clips serve the same purpose, but add in a locking method of security with a hooked end that springs into a pre-drilled hole in the backing board. Frameless clips come in 3.8mm, 8mm, 20mm width sizes, swiss clips come in 7.5mm, 10mm, 11mm sizes (the 10mm clip has a convenient hanging hole built into it. For small frameless pictures, you can use easy frameless clips for this purpose too, which just push over the sandwich and hold it together. We also have specialty foam board hangers for hanging foam board onto a wall. Foam board is commonly used as a mounting board for a print, and these hangers allow the foam board to be directly hooked to the wall. Special hooks lock the hook into place in the foam board.
