Welcome to dickblick
These unique frames are so named because the illusion they create is that your artwork is "floating" within the frame instead of being covered by it — 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.
Available in a variety of popular sizes to accommodate 3/4" deep or 7/8" deep canvases, the Blick Maplewood Floater Frame is made from genuine American maple hardwood. Every frame is hand-rubbed, giving it a beautiful, silky smooth feel and a "washed" appearance, which may be more pronounced with the Black frame. The color of these frames may vary slightly depending on the color of the natural wood.
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.

Simple and Classy
from San Diego, Ca
This was a frame for a colorful modern art piece - it looks finished without detracting from the painting. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it is a floating frame and there were no screws to attach the painting to the frame.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Framing oil paintings- good look, doesn't look cheap.
By Moe, Larry, Cheese
from Palm Desert, CA
I really like the look of this floater frame. However....the pre-drilled holes extend beyond the 16x20 canvas frame so you can't screw the canvas into the frame. In lieu of drilling new holes, which may or may not work, we will probably use glue to secure the painting in the frame.

Follow up to bad review - now much better
from Los Angeles
I wanted to update my last review that gave 1 star to this floater frame. Blick contacted me and sent me a new frame that looks great and that does not have the corner protectors stapled to the wood. So, maybe what I received before was a defective item. Kudos to Blick for its excellent customer service!!

How to ruin a good frame
from Los Angeles, CA
I have been very happy with Blick's frames in the past, but not this time. First, the frame is not really black but dark grey. Second, and worst thing about it: the cardboard corner protectors are *stapled* to the frame. So, you remove the cardboard and then try removing the staples and they break. Now you are left with tiny pieces of metal sticking out from the frame. I could remove some with a plier but not all, which I ended up hammering into the wood. Seriously??? How about using scotch tape to keep the protectors in place?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Maple Floater Frame
from Milwaukee, WI
These frames have a very nice finish, the hard wood is excellent and it fit my painting very well. With a floater frame you can see the entire painting with no over lap. I did have to buy some clips to hold the painting in. They provide holes but they did not line up for me.

I use these frames for my small landscape paintings. They are well made, enhance the artwork without overwhelming it, and are easy to put together with the paintinngs. I'm so happy to have found them!!

These floater frames are good quality and really present original paintings very nicely.
Great Framing Value
from Bloomfield, CT
Needed three inexpensive frames for portrait series I've entered into a show. Arrived quickly, look great and gives the work a professional finish. Design is easy to install.
Floater picture frames
from Milwaukee, wi
Floater frames allow the paintings to be seen entirely, no covering up the edges. These are terrific frames, nice finish, sizing, and wood. I accidentally ordered the wrong color and sent them back for exchange. I was impressed by the turn around time!!
