So, here's the deal. I'm not a real big "frame" guy, but I want to get some photos up. What's the best and most creative way to do so?

I was thinking simply matte boards and tape-tack to the wall. But...yeah...ideas? :D

There are some that are just glass and a backer board. Clips hold the whole thing together

Modern photos have a lot of options when it comes to display due to digital storage of originals, and ease of printing. Protection? Meh, store original files in redundant backups, and display a hard copy however looks good. If the hard copy takes damage, bin it as you can have a replacement just a few clicks away. We don't have to do our best to make a photo last a lifetime, just preserve the data.

Personally I'm thinking I will likely pick my favourite 10 images or so to dry mount on foam board in decently large format, and then back bevel the edges without any boarder, so the image will project itself off the wall. I don't expect it to be exceptionally durable, or to survive a move, but it will be cheap enough that I can simply replace it. (And I will more than likely end up swapping the images out by the time I move.)

We had several of our engagement and wedding photos printed on glass. There are also companies who print photographs on wood.

Great idea. I was also toying around with maybe doing wire and just clipping them unto the wire.
