Here's what I found:
1) Nobody seems to have matted frames with a 12"x18" hole.
2) Michael's and Cheap Pete's offer custom cut mats for less than
Aaron Brothers. I think Michael's was cheaper.
3) Aaron Brothers has the 'buy a frame, get the 2nd for 1-cent'
promotion going on until Jan 24th.
I might stick with the $15 Ikea frames, and for some photos that can't
be cropped I may go in for a couple of frames from Aaron Brothers,
along with custom cut mats from Michael's.
Btw, I'm nothing more than an amateur, so I don't need great quality
frames/mats or anything.
I was looking for something to put up on my walls, and thought putting
up my own pictures would make for an interesting conversation piece
rather than putting up random paintings/posters.
