Preserve/frame my pen and ink artwork

I recently completed my pen and ink artwork on a poster board which is of size 54"(length) by 34"(width), then I glued the entire art in a big thermocol (the packing material that came with my elliptical). I always wanted to do big artworks but this is the my first one. Everything was looking good but now I don't know how to preserve it as the paper may change colors if I don't laminate or frame them. It has happened before but the artwork was smaller, so I used frames to preserve them. I need your expertise on this. Thanks in advance. [more inside]

High Quality Copies for Framing?

I have a handful of hand-written recipes from my beloved late grandmother. I have been considering having some framed for my mother and sister, but we all treasure being able to hold them in our hands, and I am somewhat hesitant to lose that ability. I have done some searching about the possibility of having high-quality copies made and framing those, but I haven't been able to find anything like this. Does any one know if this is a service that exists? If it exists and exists in NYC, all the better, but I would be willing to work anywhere reputable. Many thanks.

How to frame concert posters without "ruining" them?

My boyfriend collects posters from the many concerts he attends. He is averse to using store-bought poster frames because he thinks this will ruin the poster. Is this true? If so, is there a cheaper method to protect the posters than custom mounting and framing for over $100 apiece? [more inside]

Looking for cheapest place to buy metal frames parts for 22 x 34 poster

I plan to go to Lowes or Home Depot and get the backing and plexi but want sturdy metal parts to make a very basic black 22 x 34 frame. The stores have the dimensions but the quality is so utterly crappy I want to get something sturdy. Many of my posters have the 22 x 34 dimensions but am going for cheapest online site that is dependable and then will build from the parts myself. I had found a site years ago but no longer can find it anymore. (Tried IKEA as they at least look a bit nicer but no luck on that dimension.)

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]

Framing a large poster: what is the best strategy?

I want to matte it at 3" on each side, bringing it to 30" x 48". My goal is to spend ~$100 on the framing, glass and matte boards... is this possible? [more inside]

American Frame - but Canadian, eh?

I'm posting this for my sister. She is looking for a company like American Frame but which is based in Canada. She loves what they do but shipping into Canada (along with the brokerage fees involved) is too expensive. She wants to be able to order a kit like they provide (4 sections of framing material, 'glass' etc) from someplace in Canada. It has to exist but my google-fu has failed me (and hers is much weaker than mine)
