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.

from Placerville, ca
I am an oil painting student. I needed a 16 x 20 frame for one of my paintings. I purchased the gold leaf plein air frame. The gold leaf was used economically so that lines between the attachment showed. I don't recommend purchasing the larger gold leaf frames.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Washington, DC
terrible quality control...have to send back a bulk order for the second time. they cam scratched, chipped and unusable.
Yes, I will buy more Blick frames, good price, good quality.
Good selections to choose from on the open backed frames, I am an artist who paints landscapes and more.
A lovely aged-gold frame. I am extremely pleased with its quality and look.

Really nice frame
Very well made,
Could have been better
from Bellingham, WA
The millwork is good and gets 3 stars. The joinery isn't so great (2 open miters) so only 1 star for that. The metal leaf is nicely done and gets 4 stars. The attempt to "rusticate" the frame with grey paint slobbered into the recesses and splattered/smeared on the frame gets 0 stars. They should have omitted this last step, as it ruined the frame. Average stars=2Too much hassle to return, so I'll use it on a wall that doesn't get too much light. The price is great compared to the offerings of big box stores.This particular frame could be an anomaly, and I like the design so much, I may order another just to find out.
This one is the best
from Phoenix, AZ
Great look at a great price.
I have bought theses frames numerous times!
These frames from Blick are a real value and look great. They enhance my original art and prints with added quality!
Better than expected
These frames were unexpectedly heavy & solid. Good quality and look great. They worked perfectly.
