May The Fourth Be With You

Star Wars

May 4th is widely recognized as a day to celebrate all things Star Wars! While not an official holiday, this date was selected due to the play on the big Star Wars catchphrase “May the Force be with you.”

In 2007 the city council of Los Angeles established May 25th as Star Wars Day because it marked the 30th anniversary of the release of the original Star Wars film, A New Hope.

That mere fact doesn’t deter any die-hard Star Wars fan from recognizing May 4th as the actual holiday. In Canada they went so far as to organize a celebration of Star Wars Day, with the first annual event taking place in 2011. Then to double down on May 4th as the unofficial but official celebratory day, The Walt Disney Company has hosted many Star Wars gatherings and events annually on this day.

Entertainment Weekly’s July 22, 2016 issue rates BoJack Horseman an A and their website chose it as Pick of the Night for its release on July 22 to binge watch. In this same print issue, BoJack Horseman makes The Must List (a list of top 10 things Entertainment Weekly loves this week) for TV, saying “brutal cynicism, devastating poignance, and animal puns ensue.”

According to a July 27, 2016 article in Business Insider, Rotten Tomatoes has confirmed with them that BoJack Horseman has “the highest rating of any show released this summer”. Bojack season 3 also has a 100% review on Rotten Tomatoes, a popular film review aggregator.

She was born June 1, 1926 and overcame a difficult childhood. She soon became what we still know her today, a Hollywood star.

Picking the Best Poster Frames

Memorial Day weekend is almost here and that’s when Hollywood kicks off the summer blockbuster season and starts releasing their big tentpole movies. If you’re a fan of action, adventure and fantasy or anything with explosions, special effects or spies, this is a great time of year for you. Sometimes it’s fun, when you’re a fan, to get a few posters from the big movies coming up. Not the expensive, collectible posters that hold a lot of value, just the ones you can pull out of the rack or order online at Posterservice. Unless you’re ten years old, however, you probably don’t just want to throw the poster up willy-nilly on a wall. You want to put it in a picture frame. What are ideal movie poster frames?

At Frameusa we have an entire category devoted solely to poster frames. They are all plastic picture frames but come in a wide variety. The best choices when you’re looking for a large frame like a 24 x 36 or 27 x 40 frame are our Budget Saver series and our Simply Poly.

Budget Saver have a beveled 1 1/4″ profile and come in black and cherry. They have a sleek look to them and are good and sturdy. Our Simply Poly posterframes also have a 1 1/4″ profile but are flat, like our popular Corporate wood picture frames. The Simply Poly comes in white or black.

If you don’t want plastic there are some other frames that are particularly well suited to showing off your movie posters. If it’s wood you’re looking for, the aforementioned Corporate series comes in many different colors and is made from an eco-friendly wood composite. So not only does your Ant-Man poster look good in it, but you’re also helping the environment. For a thinner profile, made from real wood, you can’t go wrong with our Architect series. It has a tight, slim look and comes in some great colors.

Lastly, for something a little different, our Metal I and Metal II series can be put to good use showing off your favorite movie posters. They have the same thin, 3/8″ width but each series offers different colors. Metal I has the more basic, red, white, blue, black, silver and gold, while Metal II offers some unique colors like blue pewter, gunmetal grey and shiny bronze.

Getting to Know: Matt Nagel, Posterservice Sales Manager

REDS_27_68_LOGO As summer approaches I felt it appropriate to talk about one of my favorite pastimes, baseball. Baseball is definitely my biggest ongoing hobby throughout my life. From the time I started playing tee ball up until playing softball in my late twenties, baseball has been a constant for me throughout the years.

As a kid and still as an adult I love going to Reds games. Growing up a Ken Griffey Jr. fan I was definitely excited to see him come to the Reds organization.  I have been fortunate enough to see live some of the most exciting games the Reds have played in – from walk off homeruns to playoff games to Opening Day.

votto

There’s a different mood when it comes to baseball in the city of Cincinnati, and the fans can’t get enough of it. Opening Day here is more of a holiday or celebration than it is just the start of the baseball season. It is common for people to take off work, ditch class, or just call in sick to go down to partake in our Opening Day Parade. If you’ve never been you definitely need to check it out sometime soon.

Wood Mounted Art-Plaques for Home Decor

Bare walls cry out for something to give them a bit of interest. You can go out and find paintings or posters easily, there are plenty of artists and vendors to choose from. Sometimes a painting is too much though, especially in a kitchen or bathroom, while a poster might not be the feel you’re looking for and may be too large. There is a great, stylish solution that meets those in the middle’ wood mounted art plaques.

At Posterservice we have a selection of plaque mounted art with something to suit any taste or decor. If you’re looking for something to put in your kitchen, we have several beer and wine themed plaques that are both classy and fun.

We also have a number of great inspirational plaques to brighten any room with a little positivity.

We also have plenty of plaque mounts taken from our selection of art prints, inluding some of our Mark Allante selection. A wood mount can feel a little more substantial than a poster or print and they work with both modern and rustic design aesthetics.

My Favorite Posters: by Angela Iacobucci

As the Licensing Director at Posterservice, Inc., it’s only appropriate that I share my favorite posters! In compiling this list, it becomes clear that I love the humor posters; to have a funny image on the wall as a reminder to laugh, or at least smile every day. In addition to a slew of humor posters, we have a large variety of other images waiting to adorn your walls, including music, inspirational, photography or art, to name a few.

My favorite Posterservice poster is Onward!

Onward!
Onward!

by Jay Fleck. I love the clean design (I am a graphic designer, after all) and the crazy theme. An eye-patched, sword wielding giraffe is riding a shark as it jumps out of the water, on a mission. I’m not sure where they are going, but it must be important. This poster is a great piece to hang as a reminder to move ‘Onward’ with purpose in the adventure of life; and it’s just funny. This poster will definitely cheer you up if you are having a bad day.

 

 

 

My next favorite Posterservice poster is DJ. Also quite silly, a city-sized groundhog is DJing

DJ
DJ

among the skyscrapers of New York City. This one makes me smile every time, as he’s in the zone, minding his own business and completely ignoring the circling helicopter. I’m curious as to where such a giant rodent came from, and how he got such a large turntable and headphones to jam out and bring music to the city. The teal circle adds enough color to the grayscale image, emphasizing the furball in all his

happy glory.

 

We also have many humorous beer posters. Happy Hour makes me chuckle, with the oversized glasses. Don’t you wish your favorite bar had such large glassware? Sometimes there are hot days when a nice (big) glass of beer with a good friend makes everything better. Caribooze is also funny, with a caribou boozing out, using his antlers as beer holders. He would be a great party mascot! And then of course Alcoholic Beverages Encouraged is a law-defying poster encouraging people to drink. Nothing like graffiti on a sign to change the law.
