Aftosa advertises "trivet frames" for 4 1/4" tiles starting at
$3.95 each as well as wood boxes with lids sized for 4 and 6" tiles.
If there is a branch within reach for you, also check out the
craft supply chains "Michael's" and MJDesigns. Some of their stores
carry single and multiple tile fames sized for a standard 4 1/4" tile
at not much more than Aftosa charges.
And if all else fails--talk with a woodcrafter in your area.
Someone with access to a mitre saw or router might be able to make
them for you at a competitive price.

Try a picture frame shop. They often have a configuration of picture
molding that will work for a tile frame. I used to have a frame shop
make them for me, but they had to use the molding upside down. Took
me a while to explain that to them. And I also had them drill a hole
in the center of one side of the back so they could be hung. When the
first order of 200 came, I had to explain to them that the hole wasn't
supposed to go all the way through the frame!
Many of the tile artists in this area seem to know some retired
woodworker who turns out frames for them in his basement. Or try a
high school wood shop. Maybe you can find a student who'd like a
project. Or a Junior Achievers group. (Do they still have those?)
