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.

These frames are so beautiful and so well made. Solid wood. The price is what's the best...they are affordable. I love this line of Blick frames.

Adds perception of value to my paintings without competing with my work. Simple and works in many different settings.

Nice, solid frame
from Canandaigua, NY
Great frane. Good value. Worked well with 3/4" canvas.
from American Fork, Utah
I have typically used Blick floating frames, painting mostly 11x14 and 12x16 landscapes. However, now starting more plein air paintings. Tried one of these for my first endeavor -- and was so impressed with simplicity and quality that I will use them for studio paintings too. These frames are very versatile, inexpensive, and complementary for almost any subject and palette, and arethus great for beginning as well as experienced artists.
Excellent Customer Service
from Indianapolis, IN
One frame out of the five I ordered arrived damaged- paint had a pattern in it that the paint had run. Customer Service was excellent and sent me a new one very quickly. I will continue to order all my frames from Blick!
Simplon Frames, another great deal!
By John, the old guy in the corner.

First time I've used Simplon. The frames really show off the paintings! Thanks for yet another great product!
I love the Blick Simplon frames perfect for fine art.
I am an artist and find the Simplon frames really show off my work. I only wish they came in more sizes.
