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, inexpensive plein air frame
from Pinto, AZ
Comments about Blick Simplon Plein Air Frames:
One was very slightly dinged on the inner edge, and the "sage" bore no relation to sage, which one thinks of as a dusty green. Having said that, I was DELIGHTED with the frame for the price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my 2nd order for Frames from Dick Blick. I ordered 8 first and like the quality so much I just ordered 4 more. I will never buy any where else. The color you see on line or in book is very close to what you get. I was able to pick great frames for all my paintings.
By Have brush, will travel ...
Initially there was a problem with this order, but Blick's excellent customer service made it right. This has always been my experience with this company. Competitive prices and the best customer service in the business.The frame is terrific. I got the Espresso finish and it is elegant. Very nice and recommended.
Loved this frame so much, I bought another!
The quality workmanship of this frame is as if it was custom-made, but at a great price.Will order again, as needed.
Does the Job
By Don't Shame the Frame
Pros: Excellent for paintings on board (wood or canvas board) due to thickness of 1/4" or less. Rabbit is 1/2"..... Quality is good and presents a nice, finished look to a piece. Price is reasonable and allows for multiple presentations at an affordable price (if wanting to enter a show or presenting work for sale - gallery, etc...). Accepts either alligator hangers, screw eyes or D type hangers with no problem. The alligator hangers work best when the back is completely flat (as in - no canvas).Cons: A 3/4" canvas stretcher is just a little broad for the frame requiring a solution for securing the painting within the frame. Now and again you might receive one with the finish being a little rough requiring some extra work - sanding & paint, but that's not the norm. All in All - Good frame - Good value - Nice finish to a painting (masterpiece or not)
I would buy this item again.

Very happy with the product.
from shrewsbury MA
I bought 2 frames that were well made and looked nice.
Definately purchase again
The Simplon Plein Air Frame is my favorite frame. It is classically beautiful, sturdy and reasonably priced. It doesn't overwhelm my paintings with unnecessary ornamentation. I usually buy the gold leaf, but have also purchased the antique gold when I need a lower-toned frame. Both are beautiful. Definitely be purchasing more.
Best Quality for the money

Clean and simple quality frame
Blick Simplon Pein Air Frames
from Devon, PA
My painting looks amazing in the large frame! I do wish the materials with which to actually "frame: the painting had been included ... this was not expected, but only a suggestion.I also wish you would open a branch in our local Staples store - there are only a few tiny art stores for paints, etc. in this area, and those are not stellar!
