Welcome to dickblick
These are ready-made frames made in an earth-friendly way! Constructed of bamboo, a self-renewing resource, and finished with a biodegradable resin that contains no oils or solvents, these frames are as durable and versatile as they are beautiful.
Two back grooves allow shallow framing of photographs as well as deeper framing of 7/8" canvases. Canvases that are 1-3/8" deep will extend flush with the back of the frame. Swing braces and backing board ensure stability.
These frames ship with an acrylic face as acrylic is lighter than glass and is less likely to shatter in transit.
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.

Product Changed... For the Worse
By PA Artist
Comments about Blick Gallery Bamboo Frames:
These frames used to be literally the best prefabricated frames in standard sizes for the price. Now, the product you get doesn't have splines, despite the pictures on the website. Be prepared for the very subpar L-staple system. I'm very disappointed that this product changed and Blick doesn't seem to indicate this on their webpage and description. Please bring back the splines and the quality or at least change your pictures and description!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The frame is beautiful!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great-looking and eco-friendly.
from New Hampshire
I like to find and re-use old frames when I can (reuse/recyle). The next step is to consider bamboo frames, made from a fast-growing "grass" that is also considered a hardwood. This reduces dependence on petroleum-based plastics and often-unsightly laminate frames. I especially like the depth (1 3/8") of these frames.
Dark Bamboo Frames
from Aptos, CA
The dark bamboo frames are very attractive and work well with any painting. Dickblick should definitely continue to provide this product to artists.
green and beautiful!

I use these frames for family and professional shows. Excellent quality bare, or painted!

This might be better for work that does not need to be under glass the frame is solidly made, very deep and I like the bamboo, however the plastic that serves as the glass is extremely thin. The backing has little metal arms that swing out to fit into a groove. The groove is placed such that to replace the thin plastic with real glass would make the whole setting to thick to fit to that groove. I would then have to take it to a frame shop to have framers points set in, which I will probably do, the frame has plenty of depth to accommodate this. If the groove were set to the depth necessary for real glass this would be rated it excellent.
Dark bamboo frames.
This frame enhances any painting. Blick should acquire more, I'm sure it is a good product for the company. Would like to purchase more in a larger size.
Best frame for a refined look & easy framing!!
By Pastel lover
from Macon, GA
With the refined look of bamboo, this frame enhances a wide range of art styles. It comes with everything one needs except the mat. It is easy to assemble. It has an acrylic face that looks like glass but will not shatter in the mail. If preferred glass can be subsituted.I am very disappointed that Dick Blick has made the decision to discontinue this beautiful natural frame that complements art while letting the image be the focus. Please reconsider!!
Nice Frames, Good Price
from Anderson, SC
Purchased 10 of the 6x6" size for a mixed media workshop I conducted. Frames looked great, were easy to assemble and came earlier than anticipated. The only problem is that this line of frames is being discontinued. I wish you would bring them back in the dark color as well!
Great Quality Great Price
I needed 12x12 frames for my artwork and I spent several months looking for the right frames. I've purchased samples, even went as far as buying several much expensive frames only to be sorely disappointed in the the cheap quality. I wish I had looked here first. They were just what I wanted. The materials feel solid and are great quality. They shipped packed securely and professionally. They arrived quickly. You really can't beat the quality and price of these frames. I will buy them as long as they are available. They are simple but built well and great for art that doesn't require a fancy frame. I am beyond pleased.
