What is the best way to frame an unused sheet of stamps?

I'm not sure there is any good way. I took a sheet to a framing shop and they did an excellent job with it.
This was in 1985. I looked at it the other day and the sheet appears to be 'warpped'. Pressing the sheet
so tight that it wouldn't warp doesn't sound good either.
So, I guess my answer is: I don't know.

Is the sheet modern or vintage?

I'm not sure if this is the best way or not, but I had a folded letter sheet with a Penny Black framed about 3 or 4 years ago. The framing shop did what they call a "museum mount". I'm not sure exactly how it's attached, but it seems to float above the backing as you can see in the picture. I also had them put UV filtering glazing in it to prevent fading. I've attached some pictures of the framing they did. I have a sheet of Grace Kelly commeratives from 1993 that I'd also like to have framed. Probably will do something similar.
