What is the best way to hang a litho?

Just came back from Boston Comic Con with a couple autographed lithos. What is the best way to hang them? Do folks frame them? Insert them into plastic sleeves and tack the edge of the sleeves to the wall? Looking for suggestions.

If they are nice enough for a prominent display, I'd say frame them. Ikea has quite a good selection in relatively cheap frames in lots of sizes.
You could of course put them in a plastic sleeve, but I'm sure that wouldn't look quite as nice.
I'm so meta, even this acronym...

Thanks. I will take a look at Ikea. Any idea where to get more plastic sleeves in case I go that route. The prints are 11 x 17 I believe.

On the wall is usually the best place to hang anything. HA!

Seriously though. I use the clear "floating" frames with black borders. That way they don't require any kind of backing or matting to put them into the frames.
Check out my collection!
