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.

Great value plein air frames I purchased from Blick.
from Baton Rouge, LA
Comments about Blick Simplon Plein Air Frames:
These two plein aire frames and the 1st I purchased on-line (from Blick's). Ordering was easy, shipping time great, product arrived well packaged against damage and arrived in perfect condition. I will be ordering all of my future plein aire framing needs from Blick's.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Quality frame. Got a great deal. Would buy again.
Good for the price
from Media PA
I ordered one gold and one espresso 12 x 16. They are made from real wood as opposed to composite but it's very soft like pine and the espresso had a dent I didn't notice until I removed the paper corner wrapping. Not worth returning. The espresso is very dark, almost black. The gold is very bright and brassy. If these are all you can afford, they are a good deal. I needed one simply to present a commission and assume the recipient will re-frame it to match their taste. But I would not re-purchase this style for my own use for plein air competitions or to submit to a gallery.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

High Quality at a Reasonable Price
from Brattleboro, VT
I paint traditional landscapes in studio. These frames help my paintings stand out with a real professional feel to them. My only wish is that they would come with a deeper rabbet.

By Mark M
from Danbury CT
I ordered two of these recently - One came in damaged which was promptly exchanged and replaced by-Blick wiht absolutely no hassle. For a very simple, very elegant hard wood frame that adds value to your work you cannot ask for better! These are great frames for the price and I will definitely be ordering again!
Simplon Plein Air Frames
from Renton, WA
These frames do not detract from the paintings and finish them off nicely. And similar frames on other websites are twice as expensive.
