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.

Pros: well made, sturdy, clean design, perfect for panelsCons: work required to affix panel into frame
A good Value despite chip along inner edge
There was a small gauge that was apparent along the inner edge (what would be along the top or bottom of the painting) that I had to repair with sparkle and a little gold paint. I've ordered these frames before and not had this problem. It would have been nice if someone along the line had noticed it and pulled the frame from inventory but once I fixed it, you couldn't really notice it. For the price, it is still a good deal even with the need for a minor, DIY repair.

Blick is so easy to work with. You get what you pay for. I have bought 2 easels from Blick and frames and paper and stuff. all good. The 3 wolves pictured are now in my gold plein air frame and look terrific.

Our local art supply and craft stores no longer carry a wide variety of open back frames to suit the needs of artists, and Blick provides an excellent alternative selection at a reasonable price.
