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:
Good frame. Arrived on time to frame my painting for a show. I made a hole through it though. I was not careful drilling holes for d-rings at the back and the frame was not thick enough, the hole went right through the frame. I patched it with wood filling and painted it black, but it is still visible.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Inforative, easy to track down what i needed
from Demorest, Ga
These were not to expensive, ready to use for my plein air canvases after I finished painting them, ready to hang or exhibit.
Nice finish & lightweight wood
By Barb the painter
I ordered the Simplon Frame (3-1/4", Black, 9" × 12", ½" rabbet), mainly because it's difficult to find 9x12 frames. The finish looks good. It's a classic plein air profile. The wood is very light-weight. And, in case you're wondering, the frame was made in Mexico. I am happy with my purchase.
The simplon frames work beautifully to display my painting.
from Vero Beach, Florida
The gold leaf and silver leaf are my favorites. My exhibit in the gallery is cohesive and professional when using the Simplon frames to enhance my paintings.

The plain air frames are exactly what I needed-a good frame at a great price. The shipping was fast and the packing was extremely well done so all arrived in good condition. Back orders were notified quickly so I could adjust my order for a replacement.
A Classic Beauty!
from Manteo, NC
If Blick keeps offering these stellar deals I just may start making a profit on my art! This frame is gorgeous and is impressive in any gallery, not to mention home. Blick, thank you for taking one less Tropical vacation a year because your unbelievably kind prices on your quality frames helps not just myself but other struggling artists too!
Nice for the price!
Made of wood. Enhance my small oil paintings. One came with a little flaw — like a fingerprint in the surface before the paint dried. Will sand out and try to retouch
I use these frames
By J Lay
from San Angelo, TX
I like these Plein Air Frames. They are a good buy. The back is not finished though and Mexico is stamped in large letters on the back. When I use these, I cover the back with paper.
