For some ideas on framing, I would suggest going to one of the Boston stores- Dick Blick in Boston, which is my current favorite, Pearl Paint, or Artist & Craftsman Supply in Cambridge. Their websites don't really match with what's in stock.
Another very good option is making the drive to Ikea (whose website comes the closest to what you can buy in-store). In all stores, look for black or white frames (very nice ones at Ikea), and think about sizing your image to fit the frame. Matting is not the standard route any longer, and many artists are going for draping the paper over solid mat or sizing the image just inside the edge of a the mat window.
See the websites for specific sizes... and ask if you are considering some options!
