I’m a beginner painter and some of my friends said I should get some of my paintings framed by this picture printing and framing online shop. However, I’m not quite sure if I should do so? Is it okay to do that? Will it affect the painting? Anyone? Thanks.

Will framing harm a painting? No. How could it?

In general, paintings are not mounted under glass or acrylic (glazing).

Depending on the thickness of your canvas stretchers or other construction of the painting's support, the frame may need custom design. Check with whatever framer you use.
