Movie poster frames (27X40): What's the best place to buy them?
 
I had no idea what forum to put this in, but this seems like a logical forum since it's about movie posters.

I'm wanting to frame a 27x40 movie poster.

What are some stores that sell frames at a reasonable price?

I got one recently at Walmart for $20

I've been buying them from Walmart after getting the suggestion from this board. For the price, in comparison to all the other frames out there, they are an incredible deal. They come with a plexi-glass front with a lot of poster frames don't have, and the frames themselves look really nice. $19.84 or whatever the price is exactly is unbeatable, from my research.

Have you thought about having them custom framed? You can pick a frame. Have them custom matte a border around the poster. Years ago, I had a friend who is a graphic illustrator and an art director who framed and matted a couple of posters for me, just for the cost of the frame. The posters were cheap. But, they ended up looking like expensive collectable art works.

Ikea has a few OK ones at that size.

This is from one of TDK threads. The pic isnt great, but you can see the Walmart frame I got for the Supergirl poster.

Went to Aarons Brothers and they kept telling me that buying regular frames is bad for the poster because the cardboard would eat away at it over years, and that UV glass would keep my posters from being washed out by the sun. The second part I believe..the first? I dunno is it true?

are the front loading posters worth the money?

you don't have to remove the frame from the wall so you can change posters more easily.

it is too bad the dark knight poster is 27x39

I wanted to get that framed but I don't want to buy a custom frame just for that size.

More professional frames uses acid-free backing, so there might be some truth to it.

I buy mine from Target...probably the same ones as Wal-Mart has. I pay about $20 each.

The frame would be just a tad larger than the poster. If you're handy you could create a 3/4" matte to go around the inside of the frame.

I usually wait for an Aaron Bros "Buy one get one for one cent" sale and stock up.
