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.

Comments about Blick Simplon Plein Air Frames:
Bought three of these frames at the recommendation of a painting classmate. Although they are not what I would call absolutely top of the line, they are really VERY nice, especially considering what you pay for them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not as nice as the previous ones I ordered.
By Jacque the artist
from Lone Rock, WI
I bought the frames for an upcoming art show. I had purchased frames before and these were the same frames - only different 'colors'. I should have looked closer at my recent purchase before ordering. The 'silver leaf' frame has very noticeable lines on it and the and the sagebrush has something that looks like dust, but it doesn't brush off. I had a problem fitting the 16" x 20" canvas into the Espresso frame - I tried several different paintings - they fit with applying pressure. Not sure what is going on with that one. Like I said, if I would have looked at the pictures closer, I probably would have ordered the same ones I had before. I'll order more frames, but only the ones that I had ordered before. I do love to deal with Blick - customer service is excellent as are most of the products. I would recommend frames to a friend, just not the last purchase I made.
Excellent choice for inexpensive, but handsome wood frames.

By Island dreamer
I selected the gold leaf crackle frame. It is stunning and truly sets off the artwork depicting a turquoise sea.
Love these odd sized frames
from Bluffton, SC
I love to paint on square canvas boards, and these frames are perfect for that.
Simply great value!

I have purchased the Simplon gold leaf frames on a number of occasions, and I am always startled that this good-looking plein air frame is so reasonably priced. The gold tone is gorgeous, and adds a very classy finishing touch to your painting!
