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.

I would not purchase these frames again-very poor quality.
from Santa Rosa
Perhaps for beginning artists or high school students who need a frame for some work, these frames are the ones to get. But, I was under the impression that they were simple but good. I didn't get the "econo" The frames for my purposes are embarrassingly bad. If one is selling a painting for a fair amount of money, then the frame should be a good quality. These were not.

I will NOT shop at Blick again
By Maggie Bee
Two of the three frames were not usable. Also, I was not given credit for my Artists Magazine, $10 gift certificate. My bill came in for the full amount.
Great Value in a Needed Size
from SF Bay Area, CA
Realized against a show deadline that no one local had a decent 6x6" frame which would accept panels. Got on the phone with Dick Blick and they had them on our doorstep the next morning. Solid work! Good quality simple frames - no complaints about quality or value.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
loved the frames and would buy them in the future.
from Topeka KS
I bought frames for three oil paintings I've done and am well satisfied.
from Mcloud OK
I send the frames directly to the gallery and ship my paintings as well. The gallery puts them together to save me shipping costs.
Like and would buy again, but.....
from Hollywood, MD
I like these Simplon Econo frames for easy, fairly well made frames for my smaller paintings. The last two I bought, however, had lines in the paint that looked like someone was measuring and used pencils.
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your comments on the Gold Leaf Simplon Frames. Because the leaf is hand-applied, you'll find separation lines between leaves, and in some cases the artisans who finish the frames will accentuate those marks, making each frame unique. If these are not to your liking, please feel welcome to get in touch with our Customer Care Center at 1-800-723-2787 regarding a return or exchange. We're happy to help!
Great inexpensive frame
from Joplin, MO
I have been using these frames for my small works for about a year. Love them. They are lightweight and look very professional. Great for panels

Gold is nice, would love a Champaign Silver also!!
By R v
from Bellingham WA
Gold is very nice, Espresso is too glossy. Could be much nicer with a matte finish. Corner seams pop on most then you loose the continues corner look. Would love a Champaign Silver !!
Blick goes the Distance
from Epping NH
I am on a tight budget but I need to upgrade my frames. The Blick Plein air econo frames give my work a quality presentation at an incredible price.
