lowest cost method of framing paintings on paper

I love to paint on hot pressed paper, 22x30

I'm trying to figure out a low cost method of framing lots of these, say 20 or 30 that wouldn't cause me to get a mortgage but at the same time doesn't look cheap and cheesy. Or is this an oxymoron?

any ideas? I'm thinking no mat and I want a very thin black frame, no wider than an inch. I prefer wood but any material will do as long as it doesn't look flimsy.

Any ideas?

Re: lowest cost method of framing paintings on paper

You will need glass in there unless you are sealing the paper with something like beeswax varnish or an acrylic sealer. With the glass you will need to use some spacers so the glass doesn't touch the paper.

If you could post an image of a completed painting including what you painted it with and on including any backing for the paper, that would help to make some framing suggestions.
