Proper way to frame my watercolor prints?

Hi All,
I have recently started to have prints made of my watercolors. My questions are--
should I print them with a border and should the border show when framed? I cannot for the life of me figure out how to add a border to my prints. The company I use says I need to do that before submitting my file. Any help will be appreciated.

It is the fashion to show a border and a pencil signature and issue number on prints but if they are a one-off for personal use I would frame as a watercolour with no border and a mount.

If you do desire a border it can be made simply. I use Photoshop Elements. After opening the image I go to the "Image" tab in the upper left then "resize", then choose "canvas size" and put in your desired widths and color.
