newbie dabbling in printing/framing- help?

Definite newbie here. I have a couple beautiful poems that I'd like to print/have printed and frame as gifts. Is computer print (with so many fonts to choose from!!) fade resistant over time, or should I rely on good 'ol Kinkos? Also, does anyone have a recommendation for online sources or otherwise of nice quality frames (I think I can mat since I've inherited a Logan cutter). Thanks!

I did a poem for my MIL after my sister-in-law passed away, using my SIL picture as the background. I sprayed it with several coats of Krylon Triple-Thick Crystal Clear Glaze. That was 5 years ago and it still looks great. At the time, I was using a low-end Lexmark printer!*S*

Just don't set the picture in direct sunlight as bubble jet ink can fade if the sun hits it. I printed something on fabric paper a few years ago for my mom and she prompty sit it in the sunroom and within a year it was faded to nothing!
