    i have got the official dolby posters off their website but am having a problem locating the right sized frames at the right price.i dont want to cut them down or pay a lot to have some made up.
    any ideas?

    the posters are:
    DOLBY MOVIE POSTERS: "COLLECTOR'S EDITION"
    A collection of all three Dolby movie posters City, Egypt, and Waterfall. Each poster measures 27 x 40 inch (68.5 x 101.5 cm), full-color, reverse imprinted movie posters suitable for light boxes or wall hanging. Each poster represents a scene from the Dolby trailer.

    Best to go to a specialist shop that sells movie posters and prints and frames and stuff like that. They build frames to fit though it is not cheap, (about £60 often)

    If you are lucky you may find the right size frames at your local art shop/ picture framers. Sometimes it cheaper to buy an art print already framed and just remove it for your picture, than to pay to get yours framed seperately (dave1de is right, it would be around £60 mark).

    fastframes is the way to go, but be warned they have the dumbest people working for them :eek: :suicide:

    I'm on the look out for frames that will house Daybill posters, which roughly measure 13" x 30" Any pointers? :thumbsup:

    I have used www.pictureframes-uk.com before and was very pleased with the results.

    For reference I ordered 2 large frames custom sized around A2 in size with coloured mounts and the grand total was £60.11 delivered!

    For my posters i think that i am going to go with the snap frames from the fast frames website as they also have antiglare pvc cover and seem very quick to swap pictures.
