Welcome to dickblick
The latest twist on Blick's popular Simplon frame, the Aliso is modern and versatile — simplicity at its best!
Made from American poplar wood, the Blick Aliso frame has a furniture-quality finish, excellent for complementing paintings, prints, watercolors, photos, or mirrors. The frame width is 2 ¾" and features a ¼" rabbet.
Color Matching — We do our best to match the color of frames, both on our website photography and in our catalogs, but differences in technology may affect the appearance of the photo on your screen. You are entitled to return, for refund or credit, any frame that does not meet your expectations.
Frame Depth — The depth of a frame refers to the depth of the frame's rabbet (the cut-out area behind the frame's molding that holds your artwork in place). To find a frame that will accommodate your artwork, measure the depth of the artwork, including any matting or mounting materials, and order a frame with a depth that is, at a minimum, the same as that measured depth.
Frame Dimensions — 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 ¼" all the way around, so your artwork will fit nicely behind the frame's molding.
Open Back Frames — These frames are meant to be hung on the wall and are sold as just the frame face. They are not shipped with backing material, glazing material, or hanging hardware. The open back frames are commonly used for traditional profile stretched canvases.

Comments about Blick Aliso Wood Frames:
I bought this frame with one painting in mind, but I didn't like it on that painting. Tried it on another one and it was smashing! Well constructed, not too heavy, such a welcome change from the stuff at the chain craft stores.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Frame is not properly aligned
from Bellevue, WA
I ordered the black Aliso wood frame (item 18895-2009). The frame corners are not well aligned and I can't use it for my art work. It's now sitting collecting dust in my workshop. Came well packaged, though, so it couldn't have been damaged in transit.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to learn that the frame you receive was not well constructed, and we hope you'll let us take care of this for you. One of our Customer Care Agents will be following up with you to make arrangements.
Great Quality nice price!
By Fusion artist
from Milwaukee, WI
I try to keep costs low with framing, but the frame is so important! With that said, this frame was very high quality-- no warping or difficulty in getting it to sit square...I have had that problem with other frames that come in at this price point..but this one was perfect! I have come to trust Blick for so many art supply needs and framing is just one of many! I highly recommend it!
Aliso wood frames
from Phoenix, AZ
For the type of art that I do I find that these frames are excellent. They are well made, they add to the art in the design of looking like a window to a scene in perspective.

In preparation for a show, I ordered 2 of these frames as well as many others from other manufacturers. When I opened the carton, quite a shock awaited me. The frames' surface was rough and seemed unfinished. Worse yet were the knotholes and many flaws in the wood itself. The frames are unusable, since no buyer would want the framed piece as something to be proud of, setting off the artwork.I called Dick Blick Customer Service and a mailing label for return was sent to me. I'm hoping for a speedy refund, but an immediate refund was not offered. Not a good Blick experience.
Merchant response: Thank you for contacting us. Your refund is in progress and will be applied when the returned product has been received by our warehouse. A member of our Customer Care team will contact you regarding the status of your refund.

Chipped and damaged, so I lost a sale
from West Michigan
I bought an 8 x 10 of this frame and was pleased with it until I noticed that a piece of the wood about 3/8" long was chipped off one of the corners and another area along the side.I bought this to frame for a painting that was already reserved for sale. All I needed to do was the framing and framing hardware. I could not complete this sale because I will not frame my artwork in a damaged frame. The chip was too big to fix. My reputation depends also on the frame quality and condition.I called Blick who quickly sent a replacement frame. This new one is much better but it has some areas of missing black paint. The wood color is very light so any imperfections stand out in a glaring manner. But I should be able to fix this second frame.I have bought several other frames styles from Blick with no problems. But this Aliso frame is terribly disappointing. I will not buy this style again. I have no confidence in it arriving in a usable manner. Below is a photo but it is hard to tell the depth of the chipped area due to it's location.
Merchant response: Thank you for sharing your feedback. Please know that you are always entitled to a full refund or exchange for any product that you are not completely satisfied with. A member of our Customer Care team will be in touch with you to see if we may assist you with a return or exchange for your damaged frame.
By Diane, Artist and teacher

This well-made frame is a satiny black and made of a fairly hard and smooth wood, poplar, and not pine which to me is a plus. It is simplistic in design and very classy. Great for enhancing my oil paintings since its face slopes inwards.
I purchase two frames for a couple black and white pictures that i own. Turned out very nice. The thickness of the wood used in the frames was larger than I expected but it looks very nice. Only complaint is I had to buy mounting hardware to insert picture into frame and hang frame on wall. Overall I am very happy.
