Welcome to dickblick
These unique frames are so named because the illusion they create is that your artwork is "floating" within the frame instead of being covered by it — perfect for displaying a gallery wrap canvas where no staples are visible. The canvas easily attaches to the stretcher bars from the back side with screws.
Blick is pleased to offer six color options in a variety of popular sizes to accommodate 3/4", 7/8", or 1-1/2" deep canvases. Great care is taken in finishing the wood, and all colors are hand-applied. The Gold Leaf frame features several brush coats of gold leaf, and the Gold Crackle frame achieves its distinctive appearance via a special burnishing technique.
These beautiful frames in gold leaf are finished with the "Old World" technique of showing hand leafing lines between each individual leaf that reveals a thin black separation line.
Choose Blick Floater Frames for a stunning presentation every time!
Note — 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 and order that size frame.
Frame Depth — 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.
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.
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.

The 18x24 Gold Leaf Frame
from San Luis Obispo
Comments about Blick Floater Frames:
Frame not packaged well, the paper wrapped around the corners rub the gold leaf off leaving it looking awful. All 4 corners were rubbed off. Wrapping in bubble wrap would stop that. There return customer service was good.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

nice frames nice price
By Burro Bill
from Willow Creek CA
These floater frames are the finishing touch to my canvas gallery wraps. They are made of real wood, they are square, and the finish is good too. I use mostly the matte black contour frames but the thicker frames are nice too, and the finish on all colors is good. They are a bargain compared to other brands I seen, as long my artwork is the size and shape these frames come in.I like the 1 1/2" frames. They cover 2/3 of my 1 3/4" gallery wraps and leave some of the side of my image visible. Buy a few to take advantage of the free shipping.
love blick floater frames!
My only criticism on these frames is that some of the drill holes do not line up adequately when screwing onto the frame of the stretched canvas, thus the 4 star/really nice rating. But you can't beat the price!
A perfect fit
from Traverse City, MI
This "floater" frame fit perfectly--both in size and color--with my 16 x 20-inch painting. I had never used a floater frame before. I'm very pleased with the fit, how easy it was to attach to the frame with the pre-drilled holes ready for screws, and the surface of the silver crackle. It was also very well packed for shipping with the corners of the shipping box reinforced with extra cardboard.
Nice quality. Great value. Works with most subject matter.
from Oakland, CA
These floater frames really make works on canvas pop! And the different finishes make it easy to find something that will go with almost any painting. They came well-packed, so I didn't have to worry about any damage in shipping. Requires 4 screws and hanging hardware (not included).
