Budget-Friendly Options for Making Posters Priceless
Poster Framing is just like framing any other piece of art, right? Not necessarily. Posters are mass-printed reproductions of photographs, artwork, or advertisements. You’ve seen them plastered on dorm room walls and movie theater halls. Because they are low-cost compared to original artwork, there are a few things to keep in mind when framing them. Your framing will ultimately depend on how you plan to use the poster – you still want it to look good!
How is framing a poster different from framing other art?
Posters are typically printed on inexpensive, light-weight paper. This paper can appear wavy or wrinkly if framed improperly. Unlike original or limited-edition art, posters should be adhered to a backing board using a dry mount machine so that they appear smooth. No more wrinkly posters! It isn’t necessary to use spacers to keep glass off of the art, and you don’t need to use the highest-quality frame moulding to achieve the look you want.

Why Do People Frame Posters?
Yes, you can frame on a budget! We offer budget-friendly poster framing options that don’t look cheap. When you are framing a poster for your kid’s room or for a gift, you may not want to invest as much into framing it as an original piece of art. An inexpensive poster may not need a 24K gilded frame or archival quality mounting. Sometimes you just need simple and affordable. We have frames that would work well on your poster and fit into your budget.
In a room with a poster collection, it is easy and affordable to frame numerous posters similarly. This unites the collection and increases its aesthetic value. This is especially popular with travel, movie, and concert posters.
Posters are frequently used in semi-temporary displays. In real estate offices, hospitals, waiting rooms, and classrooms, it is not unusual to change art on a regular basis.
You love Van Gogh, but the odds of you owning an original Dutch Master are pretty slim. Poster reproductions are the perfect way to bring famous, beloved art into your home. You want it to be designed as if it were an original piece of art to be worthy of a lifetime of compliments. Just because something was originally a poster doesn’t mean that it can’t look like a million bucks after a good framing job. Our designers are eager to help design that special piece.

Too Good To Be True?
When a big box frame shop advertises “50% + 20% off”, it looks like a great deal, but is it really? What is the original price? Does 50% + 20% = 70% off? Let’s say the project is $500.00. If it were 70% off, it would equal $150.00. If it is 50% + 20% off, it would equal $200.00. Compare our prices!
If your poster will be hanging in a high traffic area (waiting rooms), a danger zone (kid’s room) or moving a lot (dorm room, apartment), acrylic glazing may be a better choice than glass. Acrylic resists breaking and is light in weight.

Gone skiing lately?
Can’t say this was me … but…
it is someone! or is it?
Seems like many people are frustrated lately that when they buy canvas artwork online, they don’t get what they expected.
We have had over 20 people mention this to us lately!
The online photos show a canvas beautifully stretched onto a stretcher bar and hanging on a wall but upon unwrapping the package on arrival, they find it is only a piece of printed canvas. The canvas still needs to be stretched onto a custom sized stretcher bar and hardware added. This comes at an added expense, usually much more than the mass produced printouts! If you are ordering online – make sure you know exactly what you are getting to avoid any surprises!
