How should I frame 1/8 inch hardboard panels?

Hello, everyone.
I bought a couple of 9 by 12 inch hardboard panels, and I have been painting on them. These panels are 1/8 inch thick.

I would like to know if there are any other artists who have painted on similar kinds of surfaces, with a very thin profile and how did you go about framing your artwork so you can hang it on a wall?

Presently it seems I have 2 options. There is a framing shop nearby I could have make me custom frames for the paintings... OR I could go to Hobby Lobby or some similar store and search for frames that have a 9 by 12 size on the inside. Please let me know what you guys think.

Thank you.

Here's something to consider John. If you simply have the custom frame shop build frames for you from a selection of moderately priced moulding while you do your own fitting it can be about the same price range as purchasing already made frames from Hobby Lobby.
