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.

Would have been nice had they inspected them before packing
By Tim The Maui Painter
from Kahului Maui Hi
I ordered this model frame and the driftwwood frames...the driftwwoods all came in nicely, all packed with their respective size, and with the the classic model (this One) now out of the 5 Traditional Models four have something wrong with them, and I would not put my art in them. I gauge frames like if I saw it at a thrift store would I buy it, and these four I would not buy because of the defects.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear about the flaws in the frames you received, and we'd like to help. One of our Customer Care Agents will be following up via email to offer further assistance.

Over the years, I've purchased several frames from Dick Blick, and have rarely been disappointed. This frame is well made (millwork and joinery are very good) and the finish is excellent. I will be buying more of these, and would definitely recommend.
