The Art of Poster Framing

When it comes to your interior decor, a poster can be more than just a sheet of paper—it can be a piece of art that expresses your style, hobbies, or passions. However, a poster hung up alone can easily suffer from creases, rips, and colour fade if not properly taken care of. That's where the value of poster framing steps in.

Framing a poster not only enhances its visual appeal but also provides the necessary protection to keep it in pristine condition over time, so you are able to enjoy it for many years to come.

At Portfolio Picture Framers we specialise in custom framing services, including the framing of larger size pieces such as posters, that ensure your posters look fantastic and last for years.

Large poster frames - what style should I go for?

The first question that may pop into your mind is, 'What type of frame should I use for my poster?'. Large poster frames come in an array of styles, materials, and finishes, however if you purchase a pre-assembled shop bought frame you are somewhat limited to your choices. If you are wanting a bespoke frame to perfectly match your poster, custom framing is always the best way to go.

Here are some things to consider when choosing a poster frame style for your poster:

  • Styles: From modern to rustic, choose a frame that complements your poster and the room it will inhabit.
  • Materials: Wooden frames offer a classic touch, whereas metallic style frames lend a more contemporary feel. Consider the material of your frame which best matches the style of both your poster and the room it will be displayed in.
  • Finishes: Glossy, matte, or textured? The finish of your selected frame can dramatically change how the framed poster interacts with its environment.
  • Matting: Posters are usually designed to reach the frame's edges without any matting, but if you prefer a matted appearance, you can opt for a larger frame that can accommodate matting for your poster.

How to frame a poster: selecting the right size

The size of the frame can make or break the visual impact of your poster. Here are some quick tips for picking the right poster size frames:

  1. Measure the Poster: Before shopping for a frame, measure your poster accurately. You’ll want a frame that fits your poster without cropping important details.
  2. Consider Matting: Mats can enhance the visual appeal but also increase the frame's overall dimensions. It's crucial to find a balance between the mat and the visible poster area.
  3. Consult Experts: Unsure about the ideal dimensions? Our team at Portfolio Picture Framers can guide you to choose the perfect fit for your poster. All you need to do is bring your poster in, and we will do the rest.

Glass vs. acrylic for poster framing

One common misconception is that all poster frames come with glass. However, you have the option to choose alternative materials like acrylic, which offers the benefit of being much lighter, especially in larger frames. At Portfolio Picture Framers, we provide both glass and acrylic options and are happy to guide you through each.

Preserving poster quality: the Portfolio Picture Framers' promise

Preservation is not just about preventing physical damage; it’s about maintaining the brilliance and integrity of the artwork. Our custom framing techniques ensure that your poster remains in pristine condition, unaffected by environmental factors such as humidity and light exposure. Using high-quality materials and specialised framing methods, we go the extra mile to protect your piece, so you can display it with pride, and enjoy it for many years to come.
