u can get it from www.moviepostersdirect.co.uk for £16.99 and its double sided, got 2 of them myself
It's not an original though unfortunately
Got the frame and am very happy with it. My rubbish camera really doesnt do it justice. The frame snaps open, and has a thick non-reflective pvc cover which works very well. I'll order 3 more now, which should set the cinema room off nicely
I also found the best posters to download at http://www.movieposterdb.com/ 5 euros for 100 downloads, not bad
Technically its NOT. The Dark Knight writing is also backwards
Its framed wrong.
no actually your wrong.
as ive already stated.
Sorry about the flash!
Im not even a Star Trek fan....at all actually - but that framing is class!!!!!!
Where can I get an original "Why so serious" poster and how much roughly would I be expected to pay?
I'm really only a fan of the films. Really don't like the TV shows (either series) but I'm really looking forword to JJ versions and these poster designs I think are really inspired!
picture lizard Do great custom frames & the more you buy the cheaper they are.
My original UK John Carpenter's The Thing cinema qaud.
Love the poster, maybe get a betetr frame to compliment such a lovely poster?
But the frame suits his speakers? Not evey frame has to be black either. I think it looks very well and suits his setup.
Can get the Original on the site mentioned above, costs abit though. £99.99!! Here
I really want THIS Dark Knight/Joker poster but want it slightly bigger. Has anyone seen it around apart from the poor fleabay reproductions?
Nah, i didn't mean colour at all, i love that sandy colour, i just though it looked abit on the thick side, maybe get a thinner frame. It looks great nontheless
Lots of posters seem to be 11" by 17" what size of frame would be best suited to these?
anyone know where to get some really cheap frames sized 36x24 for some movie posters, less then £15 each. thinking either black frames, or even clip ones is nothing better. cheers
Just mounted a few posters,
There are a few more to come but really need some bigger foam board for those.
Not bad for an hours work and probably saved some money by doing it myself. Cant wait to hang them!
Looks great mate, Batman Begins =
Cheers, Batman is definitely my favourite
The bigger posters i have to mount next are The Shawshank Redemption, Back to the Future and Dogma
mounted on what? i like that look
What are you mounting them on/have you got a guide?
We have 3 joker posters that need to be framed, but this looks pretty good and may be considered as an option as it will be cheap
There mounted onto foam board. I got a pack of 10 A1 sheets from ebay at a cost of around £20 (not including delivery). This is the seller I used.
Mounting the posters is a two man job, you first need to spray some glue onto the foam board then holding each end of poster (one person at either end), one person needs to align the bottom of it with that of the foam board whilst the other keeps the poster taught. Once the bottom half of the poster is stuck in place you'll need to use some form of roller to slowly smooth the rest of the poster onto the foam board, for this i just used the empty tube the poster was sent in.
Leave the poster to set for half an hour or so then flip it over so that it is now face down, using a craft knife (or Stanley knife) cut away any excess overhang.
That's all there is to it (hopefully it makes sense). The only problem is that strictly speaking you need A0 (not A1 like i used) size foam board which i couldn't find on ebay and looking around the net getting just 10 sheets will set you back a fair amount (part of the reason for doing it myself was to keep costs down!). Therefore some (around 2 and a half inches) will have to be trimmed from the top and bottom of the poster. Not a major problem with the posters I chose but i was unable to mount a Back to the Future one sheet i had due to heavy text at both top and bottom. Something to bear in mind before going ahead!
The end result looks great and its a bit different from the norm. Will get some pics up once there mounted on the wall
Looks good mate!
Here is my framed Manhattan poster. Bloody expensive business getting a poster framed, but my living room has a black and white theme going on and it looks amazing.
Is an A1 board fine for Width then? Just comes up short for height by roughly 5 inches?
I like them SG-22 very well done.
To be honest the way they are done makes them look like you've got them on Canvas rather than posters.
I still have my 2 Underworld posters to mount so I may look into doing something similair with them instead of paying the £60+ to get them mounted & framed this time.
The posters i used were all 91.5cm x 61cm. Therefore it will over hang the board by only around 1cm and will need to be trimmed but half a cm each side isnt a great deal. The biggest loss will be from the height
Yea its a lot cheaper doing it your self. works out around £10 per poster (thats 1 x poster, 1x foam board and spray glue)
Are they original posters or reprints?
Just reprints. The only original i have is for 'Dogma' (UK version) thats staying in the tube for now (has slight damage on one side any way but nice to have lol)
