    This wall in my basement was the perfect size to fit 6 18x24 posters.  Got them all framed in the same style frame.  I think it came out pretty good.  Now time to fill up the rest of the wall space down here!






    Looks great.  I use homogeneous frames for the same room too.  I think it looks good.  Also easy to rotate frame jobs in and out!


    Thanks!  Yeah, I'm definitely planning on getting a few more framed in the same style frame so I can swap some in and out.

    yeah, I am warming up to it.
    I think the lighter green looks more authentically baseball.  The mintier green looks a bit more artificial in comparison, at least by the low rez images.

    Thanks for the input.  You mean the lighter green is better in your opinion?  That one is actually called mint.  

    The image doesnt do the darker one justice.  You could see in my original post on this that the 'grain' isnt so uniform as it is in the 'preview' image....  But the 'dark' seems to detract from the art, I think.

    Yeah it's hard to really tell the color.  I was saying teh original one you posted, before you edited, looks more like the color that you would see on a baseball field.  Personally I would go with whichever of those two colors look closer to that.  
    Is this on American Frame?  Have you ordered with them before?  I'm curious how well they do it.  I need a resource for the 12x36 size.  Total pain...

    This is 'pictureframes.com'.  I have used american frame a bunch in the past and it is good.  A few issues is it isnt 'professionally' done, you get a kit, so I have had posters 'slip' and I have had to adjust the setup.  I actually reduce the poster size a tad if possible so you get a more snug fit behind the mat(s).  You also dont have quite the array of choices as you get with a in-person framer.  The trade-off in cost is worth it though IMO.

    Need to frame the MSG owl & place it in condo on the mountain in Colorado

    My simple frame job.... found the frame at a thrift store for $20.
    Nice job. My wife likes the wood frame too! I'm thinking about using 2 mattes, still undecided.

    Any tips out there for "do it yourself" framing?
    Thanks.

    Are you looking to cut your own mat too, or just buy pre-cut stuff from American Framers or some other company.  If the latter, then the only thing you need to do the job is some acid free tape and maybe some spacers.  It's nothing.. . 
    If the former, then yeah I've got lots of suggestions from all of my trials and tribulations!

    I'd rather have someone else cut the mat ... I'm in Canada so I don't think we have American Framers up here. But maybe Michaels will do this for me.  What do you use for spacers?
    Thanks!

    I actually don't use spacers because I always use double mat so the print won't touch the glass.  The mats act as spacers.  Michael's should have tiny little ones that go in the corner to set it back if you want.  I think...Michael's and the like will charge 20-30 bucks as part of the "framing" price if you get mats and frame from them.  You can save that amount and also not let the print leave your hands if you have them cut the mat and frame and give it to you like that, putting the print in yourself.  30 bucks is 30 bucks plus you don't have to give them the art.

    Yeah, the posters have been outstanding.  Plus the foils are awesome.  I got this S/N in a trade for St. Paul 2014..

    So, if I understand correctly, I can ask Michaels to cut the mat and frame and then I assemble myself. Will look into this. Thanks again

    I think it looks great.  I had pink in hand but changed at the last minute to blue and gray. After seeing this,  I might switch from the black to a white frame.

    Great job! Is that a copy of the setlist or an original? If it's a copy can you let me know where you got it from? It was our first show and would love to print it off for my wife.
