Welcome to dickblick
A scaled-down version of our popular Simplon frame, the Simplon Econo offers equally elegant simplicity in six rich finishes and a variety of sizes. It features a 3/8" rabbet.
These beautiful frames in gold leaf are hand-finished with the "Old World" technique of showing hand leafing lines between each individual leaf that reveals a thin black separation line.
Note — Hanging hardware not included.
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.

Not so square but squared the deal
from Hudson, NH
Comments about Blick Simplon Econo Wood Frames:
I bought several recommended Simplon frames all but one was good. The opening on one was not square, therefore, the picture I painted would not set into its opening. I hope this was a fluke. In any case, the friendly representative I spoke to was apologetic and sent new frame out immediately without requiring me to send the defective frame back. I am pleased with the style, colors and workmanship with the other frames I purchased. I was also pleased with the no hassle resolve of the defective item.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very nice frame
from New Hampshire
This frame line was recommended to me by the artist whose painting I bought. I ordered it in gold with red, but sure don't see any red in the frame, but that's fine. Additionally, there was a divot in the edge, but I can fix that. Overall, a lovely frame for a lovely painting.
Very happy with these frames
from Beavercreek, OR
It's so hard to find affordable frames, I was especially pleased that there were no dings or finish defects in these frames. The simple design works great for me.
worth the price
After placing my artwork in the frame there was about a 1/8" gap reveal that I did not like.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Purchased these frames for displaying my work in an upcoming art exhibit. The frames arrived in a few days and look great around my paintings. For the first time ever, I didn't have to scramble at the last minute to prepare my work for a show.

Very disappointed in the appearance of frame.Looks very scratched/marked up/ second hand

By Annie, the Artist
from Tomah WI
I really admired how much the frames looked like how they were pictured in the catalogue. The frames matched perfectly with my artwork. One of the frames had some scratches but I think it might have been part of the gold on red design. Otherwise, the frames appeared to be in. The frames appeared to be in good quality and I am glad I purchased them
