Welcome to dickblick
These ready-made frames are crafted from solid pine, then hand-finished with fine-quality stains and softly antiqued to give the look of an expensive, custom-made frame. Each frame has a natural linen liner and matching inset.
Blick Traditional Wood Frames have a rabbet that is approximately 3/8" deep (about 10 mm), sufficient for a single-matted or double-matted work on paper, but not deep enough for stretched canvas.
Because these frames are made by hand, the mouldings on individual frames may vary slightly. 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.
Hanging hardware is 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.

Comments about Blick Traditional Wood Frames:
I have ordered a number of the Blick Traditional Wood Frames and have found them well-packaged, all in tact; no broken or marred corners and perfect for framing both my watercolors under glass with mat and foam core backing as well as my stretched oil paintings and highly recommend them. I love it when they are on sale and took advantage of it earlier in the year. I got 2 of this one because it fit the size of a set of watercolors I wanted to frame on the same wall - to match one I bought in the sale. They match really well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

These frames set off my art work to its finest.
Amazing Frames for the money!!!
By Toby's Mom
These frames are an exceptional value for the money. I really wish they were offered in my local Dick Blick Store. If they only had samples it would make it much easier to choose. That being said...I would recommend these to anyone.
Very nice frame for reasonable price!
from Vincennes, IN
I like to order these frames for paintings I sell at our local art guild/gallery. These frames are a reasonable price and good value. I can sell my paintings for an affordable cost with these frames. Prompt shipment helps too! Thank you!

I have mixed feelings about this frame. As a professional, I order many frames. I have used a number of these frames, and the majority have been fine. However, I have also had to have a number replaced as unusable for my gallery display and sale. The liners are the main problem, corners not tight, some of bare wood showing where liner not properly fitted, and the last one had approximately 1 1/2 inch area on front edge which had been damaged and very poorly repaired. The cherry seem to be the worst. On the other hand, when good, they're beautiful. The darker colors with burl wood have been quite nice. All problems have been addressed quickly and very satisfactorily.
I have ordered this frame three times and I'm always pleased
from Fairfield Glade E. Tennessee
Like I said above this was the third time I have ordered this frame and all three match perfectly. The price was the best for a wood frame.

Most of the frames are well made but some arrive with spotting on linen liners. The dk brown frames with gold liner are awesome.
A very good quality frame for a moderate price and quick shipping.
