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.

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

This is true only for works on canvas and boards.

Works on paper are often matted and framed with glazing similar to the way photographs are.

The original poster did not say what type of paintings they are making.
