Good Questions: Framing Large Posters?

Good Questions: Framing Large Posters?

Aug 30, 2006

Dear AT,

I recently was in Berlin and bought at a flea market some beautiful but large vintage posters to decorate my very first apartment. I'd like to graduate from the sticky-tac and display these posters nicely. Is there a way short of framing them at $150 a piece? These posters are as large as movie posters (68 cm x 99 cm) and do not fit conventional frames. Tips?

We've had lots of framing questions lately!

We experimented with framing your posters (27" x 39") and adding in backing, plexiglass, and shipping, at a couple of websites, and here's what we came up with:

Wholesale Poster Frames: Approx. $75
Frames by Mail: Approx. $90
American Frame: Approx. $130

Quite a few people here suggested "float mounting."

We haven't checked out brick-and-mortar places like Aaron Brothers and Cheap Pete's, but they might be worth a try, especially during their sales.
