Buying frames and cutting the mats yourself:
This is harder to do now as a lot of professional framers refuse to do this anymore, including mine. But if you can get someone to do this, it saves you the hassle and you get really precise cutting that looks great. This picture shown is of me when I was around 2 at Christmas. Because these photos were linked by subject, I wanted them all together and I knew it was way to complecated for me to frame myself. So I just purchased the frame (on sale from Michaels for $20) and then had it professionally matted. I think it only cost me $20, but this was probably about five years ago.
