    I checked them out online.. I only found nice small frames or large 'poster' frames. The poster frames are cheaply made and have no matting.
    Perhaps I missed something though.

    I just bought a batch of frames from American Frame. I've used their products for years and have been very happy with both the products and the service they provide.

    16x20 aluminum sectional frames, with standard plexiglass glazing, are $17.34 plus shipping. I provide my own matt and mount boards.

    Thanks for the update. I will check them out soon. But I will have to set a full day aside. Every time I go to Ikea it seems to suck up the whole day.

    I use American Frame also for the standard Neilsen sectional aluminum frame. They do offer a free custom cut window mat with each frame.

    For glass, you can order a box of Tru Vue premium clear from your glass store/framing store. The glass is clean and doesn't require washing. Also is cheap, about $60 for 23 sheets of 16x20, if I remember correctly.

    What is inexpensive in your mind?

    Here is a place I use:

    http://www.framefit.com/

    They custom make frames for me.

    Here is another:

    Cheap/Expensive, either, your client sees everyday. What is the message you want to convey with your art?

    Check out: http://www.aswexpress.com/Default.aspx the Ambiance Gallery Deep Wood Frames

    They do not come with mats (I cut my own), but if you are looking for pre-cut mats, those are available from a lot of places separately. ASW has sales constantly that you can be notified about by email. I buy in their Box of 4
    package that is less expensive in the first place, and is discounted even more during sales. I've had to buy up to 20 frames at a time for shows, so I've been very very careful about prices. These are not heirloom frames you might want for your own living room (though I have them in mine), but they're fine for gallery exhibits, and as basic framing for sales. The glazing is very thin plexi, and very vulnerable to scratches, but with careful handling, you can save a great deal with these materials and still mount a fine looking photograph.

    If you are near an IKEA, they have some simple black or white wood frames, including pre-cut mat and glass, at very low prices.

    The IKEAs here have simple inexpensive frames, but the mats aren't necessarily useful.

    The larger mats are cut to fit either 8.5"x11" photos, or a larger size which is either digitally oriented, or a European size, or something else I don't recognize. They are either too wide or too long to use with 11"x14" photos.
