    Hello, I decided to get a print done by a more specialist printing service and had a print done on Hahnemühle German Etch 310 gsm.

    Do I just chuck it in a frame behind a piece of perspex, or should it be glass or just a frame without anything in front?

    I've had a look online and not found anything, other than a spray to use on it....

    Depends what you want to look at:). Traditionally I suppose you would mount it on supporting card, overlay a bevelled card frame and mount the whole behind glass in the frame of your choice. The mount fills the gap between the physical frame and the edge of the photo assuming that you want a border. I'd suggest to find a local framing service and have a look at what they do, even if you decide to DIY they will have card mount and frames on display. Usually they have some examples on display. Otherwise most shops sell photo frames complete with pre-cut mounts although these will tend to be in standard (small) sizes.
