Poster frames are an investment that you shouldn’t live without. There are actually several types of these frames available to serve the function that you need them to.
Why should you bother putting your posters in them? Why not just mount them on the wall and call it done? The benefit of adding a frame to your poster is simple. It allows you to create a beautiful look that also helps to preserve the quality of the photo for a long time coming.
Poster frames can be purchased relatively inexpensively. You can find them available in many styles and sizes, to fit virtually every need. If you can’t find the size you need, you can select to have them custom made to fit your specific sizing or even your favorite color or shape. Here are some considerations for selecting the best frames for your posters.
• Choose a frame that is larger than the poster that you plan to put in it. Then, place a mat board around the outside of the poster to help secure the edges and protect them from damage.
• Select plastic rather than glass for the inside of the frame if you are putting them up on unsupported walls. If you will be using glass or a heavy frame, look for the stud in the wall to help insure that it will have the strength to hold up the poster.
• Select from a variety of colors. To help make the poster pop on you wall, select a color that isn’t the most important color in the poster but one that is still there.
Doing these things can help you to secure your posters for a long time in coming. Without a bit of attention to this detail, though, you may find yourself with just an okay poster.
