Welcome to dickblick
The Blick Contour Floater Frame is a beautiful contemporary frame made in the USA from American hardwood.
So named because the illusion it creates is that your artwork is "floating" within the frame instead of being covered by it, this frame is perfect for displaying a gallery wrap canvas where no staples are visible. The canvas easily attaches to the stretcher bars from the back side with screws.
The Blick Contour Floater Frame is available in three finishes, in a variety of sizes that accommodate 3/4", 7/8", or 1-1/2" deep canvases.
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.
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.

Rich looking and Substantial Frames
from Wilbraham, MA
Comments about Blick Contour Floater Frames:
I couldn't find anyone who carried 9"x12" floater frames and I had already painted two pictures in that size so I was happy to see that Dick Blick carried that size. I was impressed with the quality of the wood frames with their metallic finish. My pictures look impressive in them. I knew that some colors were on backorder when I ordered them and haven't received all yet. I am pleased with the ones that I have gotten so far and can't wait to see the rest of them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This floater frame worked perfectly to frame a photo canvas. It arrived well packaged and in excellent condition. The size was exactly what we needed .It was simple to attach the canvas. The price was terrific and I am sure I will purchase this frame again.
Better than I expected!
from Bedford, NY
Bought several sizes in white. They arrived very quickly and in good shape. It was easy to install my stretched canvases and I would definitely buy them again for a clean finished look!
A tough decision
from Queen Creek
Just how to frame certain artwork is often a tough decision. I only use floater frames and with Blicks selection I always find the right one.

got what I ordered just in time
for my painting
Nice wood, good-looking, questionable mitering & attachment.
from Western suburbs of Chicago
I purchased the white floating frames and used them to contain canvass and stretchers. The frames are made of good wood. The white frames can be used as-is, or easily painted. There is no special hardware or surface cuts to facilitate hanging, but you can add your own. Two of the four frames ordered had spaces at some of the mitered joints and had to be filled. The four holes drilled into the rear elements on which the stretchers or panel rests are too close to the outer edges. Screws must be angled inward and there isn't a lot of room to do it. I would purchase the white frames again (they look good) but I would be leery of ordering the maple or black frames; the mitering might be off and they would be more difficult to fix.
Have purchased a similar frame from another supplier. It did not fit properly and my choices were to use masking tape on the back to hold the picture in place or to find someone with a drill to screw picture into frame. The Dick Blick frame was an immediate perfect fit to the canvas. I hung it up within minutes of opening the carton. Good price, good product and quick delivery.
