Do you frame unmounted prints?

I had a couple of shows this year, for which all my prints were framed and most were mounted. The printing and mounting were done by Mpix, and I was more than happy with them.

I have a couple more shows lined up for next year, and when I heard that Adoramapix was having a sale on 11x14 prints I decided to give them a try. Money is always a factor, and I've heard good things about their work. But I haven't placed the order yet because I discovered Adoramapix doesn't offer mounting. Although mounting adds significantly to the cost, I liked the fact that they won't wrinkle under glass when framed. Also, they were easy to store and just felt better.

So, to my question: Do you frame unmounted prints? Are they likely to get wavy at some point? (And is there a way to prevent that?) Are they more likely than mounted prints to stick to the glass without a double-thick mat?

I appreciate your advice--thanks!
