    I have no idea whether this is in the correct forum, but. Can anyone recommend a site that stocks good quality/good priced poster frames for UK Quads (30" x 40") & US 1 sheets? (27" x 41") :confused: :thumbsup:

    I think they are labeled up at 100cm x 70cm
    this converts to 39.37in x 27.55in

    You could also try Cargo - again these are very large perspex but I prefer this as when I bought very large glass frames from John Lewis they were cracked by the time I got them home....useless!

    The Ikea ones are too small for proper movie posters, but good quality ones can be bought from moviemarket.co.uk

    I've bought from them and their frames aren't cheap, but they are very smart and of an excellent quality, as they are intended for cinema use.

    Glad I could help.

    Ordered a couple of clipframes and real glass certificate frames from them and they have all arrived intact, and unmarked. :thumbsup: for FastFrames

    If you had seen the state of the tent peg I made in high school, you would understand why I buy frames. :laugh:

    but you wouldnt have to make them, get homebase to cut the mdf and perspex to size for you like i did. all you have to do them is assemble them.

    thats how to get cheap frames exactly the size you want. :thumbsup:

    I made my own as it had to go at the back of a book shelf. What I did was order some hardboard from a timber merchants the right size (swine cut it 3/16 of an inch short in one direction). Got some cellophane and covered it and held it in place with masking tape. Only cost me about £4.
