When I frame my own work I use Lineco self adhesive linen hinging tape L533-1015 to form a v-hinge. It is pretty archival, just a notch below museum quality, but more importantly it is cheap quick and easy.

For the frame, I generally use black metal Nielsen Profile 117. It is a simple frame just under 1/2 inch wide and some people will mistake it for wood so it generally doesn’t offend wood or metal lovers. For the mat I love the depth of the http://www.framedestination.com/mat_...em/mt8arg0000/ and I will usually got with either a white or an off white mat board.
