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.

Gold is nice, would love a Champaign Silver also!!

Comments about Blick Simplon Econo Wood Frames:
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 !!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
I would buy (and have bought) this product again.

I paint outdoors regularly with friends. In order to take care of and show off a lot of work, I need this great-looking moulding to protect and enhance my paintings.

Great product - super quick shipping.
from Joplin, MO
This is the second time I have purchased these frames. They are a good value and look much more expensive than they are.

Like these but simplon plein aire suit me better
from Port Charlotte fl
Perfect for plein air and paintouts!
from sedona, az
I love the design of these frames and they are obviously a good buy -- but more often than not when I receive them they are either damaged (cracked at corner joint) or have imperfections such as areas where the paint was not applied thoroughly. So disappointing. I would rather pay a bit more for them and have them arrive in good shape.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that you've received some frames in poor condition, and we're happy to take care of this for you. One of our Customer Care Agents will be following up via email to see how we can help.
Great price performer

The frame looks and feels like a much more expensive frame. Due to the low cost, you'll need to provide your own wire and eye hooks.
