Need bass-traps for my (still in bloody progress) home cinema room, so decided to combine this with wanting more posters for the walls.

The result is a custom-made trap sporting the poster of Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold the exact dimensions of a One-Sheet. A matching one sporting the poster of Die Hard was ordered earlier!

Pic really doesn't do the quality of the printing justice.

Anybody have experience with Great Big Canvas and their wall peel product? Their printed on canvas items look nice, but I'm looking at a more budget item so I can get several of the 16x24 wall peel posters.

I'm on Page 5 or so, and I do intend to read this entire thread (eventually lol), but I have been purchasing posters for a bit now, but i've never had any framed.

There was a sale at Michael's recently and I purchased a few frames. I started flattening some of my prints. Unfortunately, I tore one slightly when removing it from the kraft paper
It's a small tear near the top so I am hoping that the frame will hide it.

This is the print:

[Show spoiler][IMG][/IMG]


Lady and the Tramp by Ben Harman.

I've still so much to learn but i know that I do not want the print dry-mounted. Pretty sure I should request acid-free backing. i also want UV glass or museum glass (not sure i have museum glass money right now with Christmas, and Mortgage on the horizon, but i'm wondering if there is anything else I haven't thought of?

I am not going to get this one with a matte. Especially now that I tore it, I'd see it, and it'd make me mad lol.

Reading all the pages will take some serious time, especially when you get to my long posts which may put you to sleep but as always they are there to inform and help. Regarding your print, yes do not dry mount it, if you go with a professional framer, make sure to tell them no dry mounting, and yes go with acid-free backing, and UV-glass or UV-plexiglass if you get a lot of sunlight where you plan on displaying it. I think if you go with those steps you should be fine.

thank you so much for responding. i'm at least 10 pages into the thread now lol.

is there anything i can do to speed along flattening? in a safe way for the print of course. it's been flattening just about 24 hours and i don't want it to roll or curve inside the frame if i take it in too early. is that even a thing?

This turned up last month, but forgot to post it.

A Die Hard custom acoustic panel. Not the greatest quality photo of it, as it looks superb in reality.

When you say you are trying to speed up the flattening process are you doing that because there is damage to the print or you just feel more confident in it being flat for a professional framer? If the latter, I would say not to worry about it so much because anyone who is in the framing business should have the skills to frame something from a rolled state. All of my posters I had framed professionally I handed to the framer in the rolled state and they were rolled fairly tightly. I have a lot of faith in the woman who does my framing though, I can't speak for anyone else but if there is no damage to it, you should not worry so much about it being rolled prior to having it framed. IF there is no collectible value to the print, yes you potentially could dry mount it, but that is a permanent process, it makes it completely flat and that is something a framer could do, but it devalues the print/poster significantly. I only recommend dry mounting of a poster or print when there is no value to it and the person just wants it to display as best as possible focusing on the artwork/image itself.

Dry mounting is a permanent process that will devalue the poster as it alters the original state of the poster. If you go that route make sure the framer uses an acid-free backing, and then consider UV-glass or UV-plexiglass if you have sunlight coming in that room.

You can also go with a ready made frame such as what Aaron Brothers' Framing carries, or Michaels Arts and Crafts as both have coupons sometimes in Sunday papers but with the pandemic unsure if both retailers are still around. There are also frames you can buy online, but again if the poster is of a collectible value either monetary or sentimental at the very least get a professional framer opinion on price. Most ready made frames have cardboard as a backing, if possible looking ones that have acid-free backing board or see if you can purchase just that from a framer if you go with a cheaper frame that fits the poster size.
Great advice. What do you recommend for reprinted posters but frames a little better than the cheap snap frames found at Walmart?

i was just worried about it rolling inside the frame. i have quite a few prints that have been in tubes for years. some i've never even taken them out to look out them (stout's captain america, for example) so i know they are going to take a long time. fortunately, i have the space to do that now so i'm working on it. i also have a Baroque Portfolio i'm putting them in after they flatten until i can decide on framing them

i definitely do not want to drymount anything.

Because reprints have no collectible value to them, don't spend a lot on frames, the cheaper, the easier. Generally in a pre-pandemic world, Michaels Arts & Crafts and Aaron Brothers Framing would have 40-50% off coupons in the Sunday paper, unsure if they still do. You could generally find a 27x40 frame with the coupon and get it for under $20. They would feature a cardboard backing which is terrible for original movie posters as I always recommend acid-free backing board but with a reprint, it really doesn't matter, since a reprint is generally $10 or less. Walmart should have something but look around for a coupon first for the others I mentioned, and perhaps save a bit more money that way, but yes Walmart snap frames are fine for reprints.

Yes don't do the dry mounting at all. In my 30 years in the original movie poster business I have seen some people do some incredibly bad things, using poor judgement when it comes to dry mounting a poster. For a reprint, its one thing, for a reprint it's something entirely different. Naturally it's not my money, but hate to see people ruin something quite special.

I remember back when a poster dealer/poster framer who would purchase inventory from me called me up to tell me they now were able to dry mount a poster and then reverse the effects of the dry mounting should a customer want to remove it from the styrofoam backing. I doubted it and said if they test it to do so with a worthless poster of some sort. They didn't, instead of opting to use an original Empire Strikes Back Style "A" recalled version. Why they did that is beyond me. They proceed to dry mount it and then they release the process to take it off without damage could not be done after all, in turn ruining a very valuable poster that they then had to resell at a significantly lower price than had they not even used that particular poster.

If you have a poster done professionally and the framer is experienced with prints/posters (as they should be) there should not be any issues with it curling in the frame, etc. Sure you may see minor imperfections on the poster/print as it is next to impossible to find any poster without some sort of tiny flaw, even the smallest of flaws is still considered a flaw. A movie poster is nothing more than a large piece of colored paper, the larger the paper is, the more delicate it become when it is handled. Stout, who is a friend of mine, does incredible work, something like that I would recommend framing, no matte around it either since its large enough at 24x36 inches, those are limited edition screenprints and Stout's work appreciates over time in value. Look at his Thing print from 2008, those were $40, not they can command as much as $3000-$4000.

I say just look everything over, find yourself a good framer and you should be fine. Stress acid-free backing, no dry mounting. Lots of sunlight, go with UV-glass or UV-plexiglass. Keeping them flat in that folder you mentioned is also good to do until you are ready to frame, or even if you decide not to frame them but to display them in the folder. :-)

Speaking of Baroque Portfolios, I was curious to know if anyone owns one of them for storing their posters? I have so many poster tubes and posters in general that I have no idea how to store them in an organized way. I stumbled upon these Baroque Portfolios and wanted to know if they are recommended. Kinsella5, if you have any knowledge of these, I would love to hear it!

I have never used them but I have heard good things about them but also heard they can be quite heavy if you load them up but keeping one-sheet originals flat is what they are designed for and apparently they do a good job.

There are a few people on the Disney Movie Rewards thread that have them, one person in particular is member Hariseldon, I believe he has been using one for quite some time so he would be someone to reach out to via private message and ask his thoughts since he owns one. You can tell him I sent you, and you can find him via one of his postings at the link below, just scroll down to post #38900 and send him a pm via clicking on his user name.

Probably quite nice, unsure of price, but they do look nice for those going for the home theater experience. I personally don't have one myself, but then again I am in between homes right now, sold mine but haven't found a home I want yet that I like.

Thanks to those who mentioned the tip about Baroque Portfolios as I want to get my prints out of tubes and flatten them in a binder for storage as tubes take way too much room.

But better yet....I already ordered the set of leather poster weights so I do not damage hard rolled prints as I review them, photograph them for insurance, then eventually frame.

Word of advice: donít EVER order a poster from a company on Amazon called Pop Culture Graphics.

My Blade Runner poster just arrived and it is by far the worst piece of white dog crap that Iíve ever ordered online.

Itís not even paper...not even paper.

Some sort of cheap vinyl material. Colors look absolutely horrendous.

Worst product Iíve ever purchased online.

...the WORST.

Hopefully you were not looking to them for an original, especially something as rare as Blade Runner. To my knowledge they basically print up stuff and sell, that is what I have heard that its all unlicensed stuff that is print to order and thus, garbage. If you are looking for originals, private message me and I will assist as much as I can.

Appreciate the offer, but I donít see myself spending $100-$200 on a poster.

I did not expect an original for $14.

But Iíve bought plenty of reprinted posters on Amazon that look pretty great for the price.

...this one is a joke.
