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.

Nice for the Price!

Comments about Blick Simplon Plein Air Frames:
NOTE: IF Blick would offer mounting (to hold canvas/panels in) and hanging hardware as a complete package, this review would be 5 stars for sure!!! See pic and also note: This is a pic of an original acrylic in the Gold Simplon Econo with Liner. I am sorry to say that the lighting is dull, the frame is much better looking, shinier and more reflective in person, but at least you get a real example. :)It is often difficult to find just the right frame for an original work. The selection of Blick Plein Air and other frames is much better for the quality, selection, and price than most of the other "box" stores that are familiar to we artists. A good frame can dress and class up an original oil, acrylic or other work, and in my case I am using these to finish plein air and some studio pieces, both oils and acrylics and am very satisfied with the appearance and overall value! My only disappointment is noted above, as this leaves additional materials and steps that could be offered in "one-shot!" Yet, I would recommend these frames readily.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect design......great choice of color ( I have used all choices!) and you CANNOT beat the prices!
Lovely frames for the money
They come well packaged and arrived quickly. Such a good value, though there are some minor imperfections that you likely may not get in a more expensive frame.
Affordable and professional

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.
