My wife is doing a craft fair, selling some of her clothing that she makes. I figured I would print some images and place them in mats to sell. I have looked around at a few different websites, but haven't turned up much.

My plan is to have a few dozen images from 5 X 7 to 12 X 16 on simple white or black mats. This would make it much easier to store when not in use.

Any ideas? And thanks for any help or suggestions...

Check out your local art stores - I get mine from an Eckersleys chain - just a state or national art supplies store.

Keeping with white or black is the best plan. Have a look at Redimat.com (external link) They have all of that plus many more choices. The also have backing and protective bags to keep finger prints and dust of your matted prints.
