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.

Comments about Blick Simplon Plein Air Frames:
I've bought similar from the other cheap place. This is better. The gold doesn't look fake or gaudy.I bought both shades of gold. The darker gold leaf came up a bit but I burnished it back down. It's a tiny bit too dark. But looks nice for being so inexpensive. I have expensive Frames also.These are very nice.. Don't like the .speckled
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

First and last time I will order a frame from Dick Blick. Why can they just check them over before they send them? I ordered white in this and it came with marks and a small knots stain coming through the paint. I needed it to frame a piece for a gallery this week and can not use it in its current form so I need to repair and paint it or return it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love these frames
Ideal for Enhancing Plein Air Paintings
By Art Strong
from Northern California
The width of the liner is what makes this frame work. A study painting outdoors can be a bold, vibrant impression of nature, but are often is too small to effectively work in an exhibition. The Simplon frame enhances, but does not overwhelm the piece by making the image appear more prominently. When many Simplon frames are used together in varying sizes and finishes a cohesive and affordable presentation results for the budget conscious artist. Also, these frames hold up while battling the abuse they get from show to show.
from Newark Valley, NY
I love this frame. It's well-made and is a beautiful addition to my painting. I will order this type frame again.
