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.

Comments about Blick Simplon Econo Wood Frames:
I have framed my paintings using plein air frames, but this one was the worst quiality I've ever seen. The materials are cheap and the workmanship is sloppy. I would never buy it again!! And I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Simplon econo frames
from Laguna Beach California
I buy about 200 of the gold simplon frames for my biggest retail client. They are sturdy and nice to look at.My clients love them. They arrive on time and intact. The only complaint I have is that I never seem to pay the same price twice. I would like to be able to lock into one price based on volume for a year at a time.The price varies by as much as $4.00 a piece per order.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I would not buy this frame again
from st paul mn
Very disappointed in this frame. The pictures of it makes it look alot better than it really is. Very cheap finish and color. Cannot use this to sell my work. It looks like a 10-15 dollar frame. I will try to refinish myself since I removed wrapping.

I wouldn't buy this frame again. Lines all around the frame
from Niceville Fla
I will go to another source to buy anymore frames
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us. We try to make as plain as possible that the gold leaf frames are hand-finished with actual gold leaf sheets, and for this reason will show the leafing separation lines. Please know that if you feel these frames won't meet your needs, we're happy to help with a return or exchange. Just call 1-800-723-2787 to speak to a Customer Care Agent.
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.
Merchant response: We're sorry this frame has proved less than ideal for your needs. Please know that you are entitled to be 100% satisfied with your purchase. Someone from our Customer Care Center will be contacting you to see how we can be of assistance.
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.
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
