Welcome to dickblick
The Simplon frame is beautiful in its simplicity. It's a perfect complement to oil paintings, prints, watercolors, photos or mirrors, in finishes to fit all your needs. The accented liner enhances the artwork placed inside. The frame width is 3-1/4" and features a 5/16" rabbet.
These beautiful, wood plein air frames in golds and silvers are hand-finished with the "Old World" technique of showing hand leafing lines between each individual leaf that reveals a thin black separation line.
Note — Hanging hardware not included.
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.

Terrific Value for Great Plein Air Frames
from Santa Rosa, CA
Love these frames for my plein air paintings. They look expensive and are well made. Just wish they were available in 10" x 20". I buy many of the available sizes.

Beautiful Quality Frame
By Lilli making messes and art
from North Carolina
I am very impressed with the quality of this frame I bought from Dick Blick! I make a lot of frames and buy a lot of frames for my paintings. In the regular craft stores, the pre-made frames are a good deal, but you can't find certain sizes... I cannot afford custom frames from the "framing" companies, but I still need a nice frame for these paintings. Dick Blick has a wonderful variety of open back frames in such well made and attractive sizes that I am going to buy more!
I bought the same frames twice and they are perfect.
from Long Island, New York
The black frames I purchased are perfect for the painting I am currently creating. They are the newest style.
Nice for the Price!

NOTE: IF Blick would offer mounting (to hold canvas/panels in) and hanging hardware as a complete package, this review would be 5 stars for sure!!! See pic and also note: This is a pic of an original acrylic in the Gold Simplon Econo with Liner. I am sorry to say that the lighting is dull, the frame is much better looking, shinier and more reflective in person, but at least you get a real example. :)It is often difficult to find just the right frame for an original work. The selection of Blick Plein Air and other frames is much better for the quality, selection, and price than most of the other "box" stores that are familiar to we artists. A good frame can dress and class up an original oil, acrylic or other work, and in my case I am using these to finish plein air and some studio pieces, both oils and acrylics and am very satisfied with the appearance and overall value! My only disappointment is noted above, as this leaves additional materials and steps that could be offered in "one-shot!" Yet, I would recommend these frames readily.

Simplon Plein Air Frames
By Red Sable
from Frankfort, IN
I don't normally use ready made frames but I thought I would give the Simplon Plein Air frames a try. To say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. The quality is great and the price can't be beat.
Love, love, love this frame!!
from New Jersey
Really highlights my art in the most positive manner. Brings my paintings to life.
Very nice frame for the price
from Orange County, California
This is an average frame with an excellent price. I wouldn't use it for a very high quality painting or in an art show. The price is very reasonable.
Exceptional Quality at a Reasonable Price
from Fitchburg, MA
I believe that a frame can truly enhance artwork and it is for this reason that I take extra steps to select an appropriate frame. I take a photo of my artwork and then right click and copy the various frames from Blick's website. Then, using Microsoft Word, I "try out" my art on various frames. I can then view all of my choices en masse to select the one that works best. The variety and prices at Blick are second to none (especially when qualify for free shipping promotions). Thank you!
