It's not uncommon in the world of both photography and photolithography for clients to pay far more for the framing than the print is worth,
if the intended application is decor. Presentation can be important. Without mentioning any names, I can think of some disgustingly kitchy
nature photographers who basically just make giant Photoshopped postcards, but present them in a marketable manner (at least according to
the taste - or lack of it) of their target clientele. These giant color images are of course going to be displayed under big windows or banks of
UV-intense lighting, so will probably start visibly fading within a decade. But the people who buy this kind of thing don't care. They'll just throw the thing out, even if it cost thirty thousand bucks, and put up something else to match the new furniture. So lack of "archival" considerations is certainly not something restricted to temporary or inexpensive framing techniques.
