Welcome to dickblick
An extremely versatile, beautifully simple, wood frame for paintings, prints, watercolors, photos, or mirrors. Choose from a variety of finishes, widths and rabbet depths to suit your needs.
The gold and silver leaf frames are hand-finished with the "Old World" technique of showing lines between each individual leaf which reveals a thin 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.

Very nice frames
from Joplin, MO
I like the simplicity of these frames. I use them not only for my plein aire paintings but for small canvases. They really add elegance to the paintings. They are well made and sturdy.

Perfect and economical for plein air panels
By RayVlcek Dotcom
They really make my plein air panels pop on the gallery wall
Beautiful and a great value
from Santa Fe
Sometimes there are a few small nicks where gold leaf is scratched. Corners are well protected but in between not so much These frames are a great value for the price. .They look good on most paintings. I recommend the 5 inch frames for anything larger than 9x12 inches. Actually Blick does not seem to have the 5 inch frame in 9x12 inches which I would like.
I am a return customer of Simpson frames
from New Bern, NC
I like the texture and design of the frames, also they are light weight compared to other pre-made frames
I framed my original oil painting with this frame and I love it! It looks rich, sturdy and beautiful.The price was good for this quality and size of frame.
I am a beginner painter and needed frames and found most in my area to be way too expensive. My order from Blick came on time and the frames were nicer than I expected. I will be ordering more as I progress with my work.

This frame is a beautiful compliment to my mother's oil paintings. They are well-made, the finish is perfect & the price is great.
Great quality for a good price!
By Sassy Sue

I ordered two of the Simplon Plein Air Frames in different finishes (Antique Bronze and Gold Leaf Crackle). I was very happy with both. Nice, professional-looking frame with well-fitted corners. The finishes were well-represented in the website photos, the frames looked just as I expected. I've ordered similar frames from other websites for a much higher price and have been disappointed with the quality. I will be ordering all of my frames from Blick, from now on!
I can always count on Dick Blick products
from Lusk Wyoming
I'm taking a step up in the presentation of my art work. I immediately went to the Dick Blick catalog to choose a higher quality frame
