For one-of-a-kind posters and this makes sense, but for digital pics it's easy enough to print a new identical copy -- so it does it really make sense to invest in professional framing?

This is quite true! It doesn't have to be professionally framed, my point is to do it correctly, even a cheap frame from Ikea, will do providing its done correctly, mind you there are those, that couldn't care, and those that do care to do it right first time, i guess it all depends on how quickly the photo absorbs moisture, and how often you wish to reprint the copy, its entirely your choice.
