A picture frame is a decorative edging for a painting or photograph, intended to enhance it, make it easier to display or protect it. The frame often complements the artwork and highlights its beauty, and artwork that is framed well will stay in good condition for a longer period of time. Picture frames are made mostly of wood and consist of four side pieces (frame members or frame pieces), end-joined to form a substantially rectangular, open-centered structure. The decorative function of the frame is achieved through various cross-sections. A frame member that has a decorative cross-section is called a molding (moulding).

Due to the fact that all of the picture moldings (picture mouldings) offered here have been inspired by some old American catalogs with various types of moldings, we have drawn them using the system of imperial units. With basic knowledge of drawing in 2D CAD software, you can easily draw similar molding profiles using the metric system of measurement. If you are a skilled 2D CAD user, you can also edit and modify them. The collection includes picture moldings of various styles, sizes and complexities, so it won’t be difficult to find a suitable one.
