You will definitely have to have a custom frame made at a frame shop or a large hobby store like Michael's or Hobby Lobby. You won't be able to mat it either since most mats are maximum 60". There are some places where you can get larger mats but they are hard to find.

I have framed two panoramic prints measuring 10.5" x 55" with a nice matte around the print. I use "framesbymail.com". Fairly inexpensive and mailed quickly. I chose them in the past because they carried extra large matte boards. Excellent!
:) Well, I ended up getting a beautiful frame from AC Moore which is only 1/2 hr away from me. They were having a custom frame special which was awesome! The frame is beautiful and the pano looks spectacular. I have since sold the pano to the owner of the restaurant where the photo was taken.
Shipping? I guess I question the method also...as well as the price. My decision regarding any further panoramas is to make them SMALLER! When I see a custom frame special....maybe larger!
Thanks to all who have submitted comments/answers.
The two frames that I chose were metal frames thus four frame pieces and misc hardware for mounting. The "glass" that I chose was acid free plexiglass. I also ordered an "acid free" foam backing and a custom cut mat to my specifications. I'm a fan after my first order! They were quick, of excellent quality and an unbeatable price. The frame was send directly to my office I think by UPS. I received the each frame about 4 days after the order was made.
