LOL

 

::edit:: I legit spit food on the monitor laughing at Rage's comment....

 

Hmmm... You know what works, they sell these things that clip onto the top and bottom of poster and keeps it straight. It wont protect it, and its not as nice as a frame, but it does the trick and keeps some cash in your pocket.

try to plak mount it.......but that might be kinda $$ too........or get some raw ash frame cut for you (usually the cheapest) and then put it together yourself if you can deal with a miter box.

Theres ALWAYS old people dying...

I check out auctions and yard sales on a regular. I get old shitty paintings for like 75 cents...and they usually have a very nice frame on them. scrap the painting, keep the frame. I got alot in my grandfathers garage, just chilling.

Go to a hardware store and the supplies will probably cost you 30 bucks.

 

I never understood why people frame rock posters, I can see if its an authentic old rock concert poster, like a real Hendrix concert poster but framing "poster world" pictures to score pussy seems pathetic?

Next you'll be asking where to score a nice glass coffee table.

first off, i would never put a poster behind any type of glass/plexi

 

second, find an old old door or two, resize, slap a little cheap wood trim, bang. nice mounting.

 

$20 tops.

 

beardo/martha got nothin

Ok heres a link its not much cheaper but maybe bid on it and see what happens...the link

 

Anyways the ikea idea is on point. even if you cant find a black frame you might be able to find a framed picture of the same size. Happy hunting and good luck.

 

Not much of a radiohead fan but i like karma police.

One night I was driving with a friend and saw something on the side of the road that caused me to slam on the brakes.

 

A fucking 7 foot by 5 foot oil painting of some stupid long haired cat.

 

Shit was definetly not a reprint or anything, and the frame was really nice.

 

The thing was just chilling out in the garbage along with a bunch of asst. junk from the 40/50's.

 

Needless to say, we held that shit on the roof of my car and took it home immediately.

 

I had it for a year before my mom threw it out because the thing was just sooooooo creepy and shit. Super corny cat stretched out in front of the fireplace on a velvet covered lounge chair.

 

 

Strange.

beardo...I'm curious...why not?

 

I make ALL my own frames. Like you said...having someone else do it is retarded expensive. The biggest expense you're gonna have is the fucking plexiglass. I recently paid around $40 for a 36" x 72" sheet of plexiglass. The entire frame probably cost me $50 to make...but it would have been around $300 if I had someone "professionally" do it.

another option ive found is michaels. they have a whole wall of aluminum frame pieces that come in packs of two so you can customize the width and height of the frame. no one is going to come into your house and cream their pants over the awesome aluminum frames you have but they look fairly nice and beat out most of the other garbage ive found for sale....i guess the most expensive part is buying the glass.

 

i assume beardo is talking about cheap posters and not quality prints....if thats not the case i wouldnt mind hearing the reasoning behind that statement either.

when we go down to az, we always make a stop in Mexico to get frames. the price of a painting instantly goes up when its framed and it looks so much better too. we get them for redicously cheap and sell them for more. :)

I usually prefer posters mounted on kapa fix, 8mm mdf sheets or aluminium. I hate the reflections on the glass plexi unless its a really glossy picture or some original artwork behind it.

i was in the "custom framing" buisness for about 5 years.

 

ikea frames suck asshole.

 

 

with something super huge like that -the best thing to do in terms of presentation and keeping the cost down is to have it mounted (preferrably vacum mounted) to a nice sheet of rag board. that alone would be about 120+.. but well worth it considering it will last for about 3 lifetimes.

 

that way it's flat, and you can then choose whatever type frame you like, just dont put the glass directly on top of any print, poster or not, it will eventually ruin it.

 

in the long run youre lookin at around 200 at the cheapest (as far as doing it right) since most of the cost youre paying is labor - it's not such a bad idea to build a frame yourself, if you have the resources.
