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.

It is really good quality frame.
I love that it is "real wood'.
Love these frames!
I love these plein air frames and I try to keep a stock of them in various sizes and colors - especially the black ones and the gold ones. They always look great on my paintings.
Simplon Frames great buy for the buck

This time the frames came well packed and there was no damage. I have difficulty distinguishing the espresso from the black frames though. My customers love this frame on my small paintings.

These frames are very attractive, and work well on my paintings.
Nice frame, nice price

Framing standard size paintings with these makes for an nice, affordable frame that keeps your work within the reach of the average buyer. The work shows well. Buyers can do custom framing later, if they wish.

I am using this frame for one of my plein air paintings. It is solidly built of good wood with nice white matte paint. It has been hard for me to find good 8x10 frames at a reasonable price for my plein air paintings and I'm happy to see this frame comes in several colors.

I use the frames for my plein air paintings. They make quite a statement and highlight my paintings perfectly.
Well made, enhances your art work inexpensively.
from Milton PA
I had gotten cheaper more basic frames but when I put my art work in your frames I felt I was able to charge more because they looked like they were worth it!
