For basic, small, regular sizes, your best bet might be those complete frames (8x10 usually for 5x7, with or without mat) at local camera store, art store, and department stores. Price varies from $3 to $30. I use American Frames for framing, but usually only when the size is 12x16 or larger. It costs almost $20 for black metal frame + plexi + mat + foamcore backing for a 12x16 from them . It is the flexibility rather than the price advantage that attracts me.
