These are ready-made frames made in an earth-friendly way! Constructed of bamboo, a self-renewing resource, and finished with a biodegradable resin that contains no oils or solvents, these frames are as durable and versatile as they are beautiful.
Two back grooves allow shallow framing of photographs as well as deeper framing of 7/8" canvases. Canvases that are 1-3/8" deep will extend flush with the back of the frame. Swing braces and backing board ensure stability.
These frames ship with an acrylic face as acrylic is lighter than glass and is less likely to shatter in transit.
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.

Comments about Blick Gallery Bamboo Frames:
Can't use gallery mats. Kind of silly to advertise as gallery frames if they don't fit 8 ply gallery mats! Look nice in dark bamboo. Had to gouge out in frame to try to fit the clasps. Is there any frame that fits gallery mats?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love these frames!
By Ms. Pua 57
from Denver, CO
Great price for a simple, beautiful, quality bamboo frame. Makes your artwork shine! Looks like professional gallery frames. Well-made with acetate lining in front instead of glass. Very sturdy!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Really stands out!
This frame is well made, and used on a print that I bought. The matting material was foamcore so it was a little thick, but worked just fine in the frame.
By Miss Pua
These frames are durable, beautiful, simple. I love the bamboo frames. My artwork looks great in them!

Nice quality, renewable resource. Acetate could be thicker, but is serviceable.
Product Changed... For the Worse
By PA Artist
These frames used to be literally the best prefabricated frames in standard sizes for the price. Now, the product you get doesn't have splines, despite the pictures on the website. Be prepared for the very subpar L-staple system. I'm very disappointed that this product changed and Blick doesn't seem to indicate this on their webpage and description. Please bring back the splines and the quality or at least change your pictures and description!
The frame is beautiful!
Great-looking and eco-friendly.
from New Hampshire
I like to find and re-use old frames when I can (reuse/recyle). The next step is to consider bamboo frames, made from a fast-growing "grass" that is also considered a hardwood. This reduces dependence on petroleum-based plastics and often-unsightly laminate frames. I especially like the depth (1 3/8") of these frames.
Dark Bamboo Frames
from Aptos, CA
The dark bamboo frames are very attractive and work well with any painting. Dickblick should definitely continue to provide this product to artists.
green and beautiful!

I use these frames for family and professional shows. Excellent quality bare, or painted!
