    I want to frame this turn of the last century stone lithograph that I had mounted on canvas years ago. It is 8.5' x 6.5'. How do I go about framing it while keeping it tight? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Mount it on Marine Ply and stretch-then use any mouldings that take your fancy to finish the frame.........Cheapo solution,plus it works-I do the same thang with largies!
