Well I only have one of my 3 framed. The one I do have framed is the one from the Mayan show in LA. I was so damn excited when I got it that I went and got a cheap poster frame for it. I havent had a problem with it and I think it looks fine, but I want to get the others professionally framed. I feel it will look best and really help protect them. I would cry if something happened to these babies :unsure:

Sorry, I've only got photos of photos of my posters in frames.

I guess I could take a photo of the photo of the photo of my poster in a frame if you'd like?

Walmart has some pretty decent basic frames if you don't want to spend the money to get them framed professionally. I just bought four black wooden ones for some other posters I have and they cost between $14-28, they come in a whole whack of unusual sizes too, not just for the standard roll up posters.

And that's the end of my Walmart commercial.

I feel guilty every time I shop there...

That's exactly the poster I want to frame, for me its one of the best posters they've made, and I also take good care of my posters when they arrive I just take them out one time see them and put them back to the tube they were shipped with.

I framed my Terminal 5 poster. I'll try to get a picture of it tonight.

By the way, it's a good idea to store your posters flat, rather than in a tube, for long term storage. More info here: http://www.expressob...ring_Your_Print

I bought a portfolio when it was on sale at a craft store & it works really well.

No problem! i didn't know that at first either. But now it's so much easier to look at my posters & when I got to frame one it's already flat.

Ok, here is my DW poster:

Sorry for the bad photo. I just can't seem to get good pictures of my posters in this apartment. Anyway, I went with a store bought frame for this one. Got it 50% off at hobby lobby. Then I took it to my framer & we chose a charcoal outer mat & a blue inner mat. I think it looks pretty snazzy. The photo really doesn't do it justice!

just got this back from Aaron Brothers today.
basic black frame, but got it matted there with just Silver matting. The silver's a close match with the silver in the picture (it's amazing how many different silver's there are when you're forced to find a match) and I can't get over how much I love it.

Wow Angelina79! That looks awesome!!! Have not framed either of my posters yet :( I was at the two London shows at Halloween and sadly had to fly home the next day so i missed their free gig and all that yummy glow in the dark vinyl, i know, i know i should have just booked another flight, i am an idiot! Got the two posters though. Framing is expensive so i think i'll get some nice cheap ones to put them in. I think we should all post our posters here too :D It would be nice to see other one's.
