It looks great but could you make it a little bigger?

I bought a print of a painting I love in the only format available: A full bleed art show poster on glossy 11"x17" bond. The painting reproduction is approximately the top half of the poster, say 10"x8". I can clearly see the grain of the canvas in the print, and it is entirely possible that the original painting is not much larger than the reprint. So my question is, is it feasible to have this print blown up to twice or thrice it's size without sacrificing quality? [more inside]

On line picture framer

I am looking for an on line picture framer. I can assemble the final product myself. I am looking for the frame, mat, and glass or plexi glass. I am also looking for a site where I have a good idea of what the frame and mat will look like before I pay....i.e. a visual representation. The items I normally frame ARE NOT stock 8x10, 5x7 etc. They are custom sized pieces. Anyone had good experience with an online vendor out there?
