Any suggestion for framing metallic prints?

I got gift certificate for having some large metallic prints done for free. (on metallic paper, not on metal)
They look fabulous, but not sure how to frame them, as I'm afraid the unique look of the metallic print won't come through once behind glass.

Any suggestions on how to mount these?
Non-reflective glass perhaps? Would that kill the reflectivity of the paper?

we usually have them mounted on foamboard and put them in metal frames no glass.
they are tough and can be wiped clean with a dry microfiber cloth.
careful you don't cut your fingers the edges are sharp.
be more concerned about how you light them....
you need to have two lights at 45 deg from the sides and up high to make em really pop once hung on the wall.
Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.

Thanks! that is a really elegant (and much too obvious) solution.
