Frames for Poster Art

#77788 3 years ago
We picked up some beautiful additions to our collection on our trip from Eugene to Red Rocks this fall.
The concert posters always seem to be some odd size.
Always an adventure when we go to get frames.
The posters from that run fit nicely in the frames made for album covers and save a lot of wall space that way,,,
Gonna need a bigger place or have to build an addition soon........

I paid $30 for a poster at my first Furthur show at the Hard Rock in Orlando, and close to $100 to have it framed at Michaels. Needless to say, that's the one and only Furthur poster I plan on owning.

I've been going to target and buying dorm room style poster frames. Most fit the official tour posters perfectly other do need custom framing or some fudging in a bigger poster frame. I've been collecting them since the first in Oakland but now after accumulating 30+ posters I'm running out of space as well...some aren't even up on the walls yet!

I think $30 for posters is expensive too. We bought the frames at Micheals and framed them ourselves. Yes it is quite expensive to have Michael's mat and frame them....
I went to that show at at the Hard Rock too .... : )

Still I didn't know they were square posters? The triptychs are considerably larger and I thought the one posters were your standard rectangular shape? Do they make album holders for unfolded albums?

Not square.
the album art frames are rectangle like a double album.

Michael's sucks too. Very unprofessional skills for the amount of money they demand. They mounted a tool poster that was like four by three feet for me and fucked it up so bad the thing fell apart on the wall under its own weight. They told me to get a piece of Plexiglass as a glass front would require hanging on a load bearing structure or a stud. What they didn't knowwas that Plexiglases in a sheet that big bows and so the staples and drops of glue they used to make my "frame" couldn't contain the bowing and it pulled itself apart. They don't know what they are doing and honestly I could've done a better job if given the workspace. Michael's sucks and is a ripoff
