OP here once more.

Man, I can't seem to express what I am after, so I will do it in baby steps:

  1. buy a frame that is 13x19 or 17x22 (preferred)
  2. take it apart
  3. put in a mat that is also 13x19 or 17x22, that has a cutout (or whatever the correct term is), of, let us say, 2 inches into the mat, or 11x17, 15x20 as an opening
  4. print, on the 13x19 or 17x22 sized Epson paper, an image that corresponds with the opening — leaving a 1/4" bleed
  5. put it back together, including the mat and the image (no tape, everything fits)
  6. hang it, then redo the process with a different photo in a few months.

Maybe the cutting and taping is a lot easier than I am making it out to be, to the extent that no one really does it the way I am describing...
