How To Frame A Poster

Tips for framing a poster

Posters are a great way to decorate your bedrooms but we often see people struggling to know how to frame posters. We thought we would help everyone out and give you our suggestions on framing posters! Spoiler Alert: We have a sale on poster frames going on right now, coupon code and more information about the sale are at the bottom of this post!

 

There are two things that make framing posters so difficult: The Size and the cheap poster prices.  Posters are generally large; the standard poster sizes are typically 24×36 and larger.  It will come to no surprise to you that large picture frames are going to be more expensive than small frames. So we thought we would give you our products that will make framing posters quick and easy. We have separated out our suggestions based on the age of the recipient.

 

framing a poster for Young Children:

When it comes to framing posters for children you want to keep it as inexpensive as possible because they are so young and their tastes in things change so rapidly. They may decide that the movie Frozen is there favorite thing in the whole world one minute and then decide the next that their favorite thing in the whole world is actually My Little Pony.

You also have to be worried about safety when it comes to hanging large pieces in your children’s room.

For these two reasons we suggest going with our basic plastic poster frame: The Corrugated Series.

This series is made of Mylar which is a thin plastic channel with colored film on it. The sides of the poster frame slide off and back on for easy assembling. This series is one that will fit in every single group because it is so simple. They are available in all standard poster frame sizes.

 

FRAMING A POSTER FOR Teenagers:

This group has a pretty wide range of ages in it so there is more options for framing posters.

As mentioned above, our corrugated series is great for all ages, especially young children and teenagers. Another perk of the corrugated series for your older children is that they don’t need help assembling the frame. They can change out their poster choices easily with the slide off strips.

The kids in the middle of this age group are beginning to get more solidified interests and may want to have a sturdier frame. We suggest considering our Foam Core Series. This series is similar to the Corrugated poster frame Series with one difference, instead of cardboard backing it comes with a much sturdier Foam Core Backing.

For kids at the top of this age group, they know their interests, they are thinking about college and life after high school. You want something that makes their room feel like their own space, and  give them the option of having something inexpensive but incredibly sturdy. We have a third option in our Mylar Poster Frame Series called The Hardboard Poster Frame Series. This series is perfect for kids who have posters that must last (until they get to college and completely change their interests). Our Hardboard Posterframes are cheap poster frames with an incredibly sturdy backing.

FRAMING A POSTER FOR College Kids:

The three posterframes mentioned above definitely still apply to these kids because college kids are rough and things break so why not give them a cheap poster framing option. Our Corrugated Series is probably the most popular with the dorm crowd because it’s light weight and can be hung using poster mounts on dorm walls.

For the kids that want a little bit more elegance for their apartments and dorm rooms we offer two affordable poster frames that have an elegant flair to them. Our Deluxe poster frames and Budget Saver Poster Frame Series are made from polystyrene which is hard plastic frame that is lightweight. They feature a more prominent molding to be a conversation piece in their home away from home.

 

FRAMING A POSTER FOR Adults:

For those that have graduated college and/or have been in the workforce for quite some time you know what you like, and you have a more flexible budget when it comes to framing posters. You could always go with your traditional black wood frames, but if you still want cheap frames for posters than you will be very interested in our newest posterframe picture frame line. Our Simply Poly Series has all the style of a classic wood picture frame moulding but it’s made out of the same material as our Deluxe and Budget Saver so it should be high on your list of cheap framing options!

We absolutely love Simply Poly here in the office because they are so durable, and versatile but still have such an elegance that none of our other posterframes posses.

Poster Frames and Poster-Sized Frames

Ian Waugh uses our Clean Cut series to make beautiful poster frames.

 

Our poster frames are ideal for just about any job you can think of (including personal art use!) But sometimes you need something a little more. Sometimes you want to make a point, or use a different color. Luckily, most of our regular frames come available in poster sizes! From wood to metal, you can usually get exactly the size you are looking for in a larger size.

Common poster frame sizes

  • 18×24 inches – Lobby and venue posters for concerts, plays, or other events
  • 24×36 inches – Common dorm room, band, black light, or decorative posters
  • 27×40 inches – US Full sheet movie posters (Occasionally 27×41 inches. Measure your art if you are unsure.)

Like Ian’s example above, a higher-quality wooden frame will make your collection timeless. This isn’t to say our branded Posterframe collection is anything less, but consider the looks of our most commonly purchased poster-sized frames: Corporate, Architect or Clean Cut Frames. For collections or a movie poster favorite, you will love them!

The best option is to try them out and see which profiles are right for you! You have FREE frame samples delivered to your door from our Frame Samples page. Simply look under “New Arrivals” on either the wood, metal, poster, shadow box or certificate pages.

Enjoy, and thanks for shopping with Frame USA!

Yes We Have Large Picture Frames

Are you looking for a large picture frame for a poster or larger signage? Perhaps you have a traveling display with promotional materials that you need to display and protect. Maybe you have a restaurant that decorates with panoramic cityscapes and you need a solution to frame these larger than average artworks. Well you’ve landed in the right place. At Frame USA we manufacture a huge selection of wood, metal, and styrene frames just for such a purpose.

large picture frames

If you browse through our catalog of frames, you will notice that most frames that we offer are available up to 27 inches x 41 inches. These large frames can accommodate anything from big movie posters to large trade show displays.

When purchasing a large picture frame it is important that you know the exact measurements of the item that you plan to frame. You should order your frame to fit the artwork or matting , but understand that there must be some overhang that will hide a small portion of the edge. Large Picture Frame Moulding If you are framing your items directly and not using any type of matting, you can look at the profile of any frame moulding on our site to find out how much over-hang there will be once you mount your art or signage.

All of our large picture frames ship with a styrene glazing or facing to shield your photos or other items dirt and dust. The clear styrene facing is quite durable but keep in mind, almost any harsh chemicals will damage and possibly distort the clarity of the glazing. On our large frames, you should take care to use only a soft cloth and water to clean any debris or fingerprints without causing damage to the styrene materials.

Please keep in mind that all of our large frames are made right here in the United States of America. If you require any customization to your large frames, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer service department at 1.800.577.5920, or fill out our custom quote form. We can accommodate requests for custom inserts, laser engraving, or custom matting, to name a few.
