United Manufacturers Supplies has a vast inventory of offset clips with screws to satisfy framing needs for hobbyists and professionals alike.
What Are Offset Clips?
An offset clip is a roughly Z-shaped piece of hardware used to secure contents within a picture frame. Offset clips come in a variety of sizes to accommodate the needs of your framing project.
At United Manufacturers, we carry offset clips in a range of sizes from 1 1/4 inches to 1/8 inch, as well as flat offset clips for projects in which the frame is already flush with its contents.
Offset clips are secured using screws, which come included with your purchase at United Manufacturers Supplies. For most framing projects, you will need four offset clips: one for each side of the canvas or object you are framing. However, you may wish to use more clips if you are framing something very large and want to add extra stability.
What Are Offset Clips Used For?
Picture frame offset clips are used primarily for framing canvas. While some people prefer to hang a canvas piece on its own, a frame protects the material while giving it a complete, polished look.
Offset clips are also useful for framing other pieces, such as a shadow box.
Benefits of Using Offset Clips
There are many advantages to using offset clips for framing. Picture frame offset clips are:
- Versatile. Frame canvases and shadow boxes of all sizes with ease using offset clips.
- Professional. Framing adds a polished, professional touch to any work of art. Offset clips facilitate this process.
- Convenient. Our offset clips arrive with screws so that you can install them quickly and with minimal effort.
- Easy to remove. If you decide to reframe in the future, offset clips are just as easy to remove as they are to install — and they can be reused. Offset clips are also better for the canvas, as the alternative would be nailing the canvas to the frame with points. The latter process can damage the piece, and the points may be difficult to remove as well.
Does United Manufacturers Sell Bulk Offset Clips?
Yes! We offer offset clips in bulk with screws included. Each size in our inventory is available in 100 or 1000-count quantities. We also sell variety sets that include multiple sizes. Save money on materials and cut shipping costs by purchasing framing supplies in bulk.
