So when you guys say "double/tripple matted" do you mean with the one(s) on top being smaller than the ones underneath, so that you can see multiple borders, or are they all the same size and just for the sake of keeping the poster farther from the glass?
this is triple-matted. not sure about the actual width of the mattes. but you get the idea.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v643/greg6906/DSCN0420.jpg
OK cool, so they are different sizes then (although I can only actually see 2 - unless the 3rd is just too dark to see in contrast to the frame).
Another few questions: What about my signed & numbered poster? Is there a way to mat it without covering that up? Or should I bother getting it matted at all?
I want my posters to look good, but I also want to protect them. What exactly should I do beyond just getting a plain old frame? Is UV glass, and all that acid-free stuff and everything really necessary?

The first is my cat & the others are the shows I've attended.
I did them myself(thanks to this thread:))Peace

The mat does not have to cover your poster. You get yourself some hinging tape(its very light & won't damage poster)& tack the top of your poster to the mat(both on the back were it can't be seen), then the poster will just "hang" from the mat
Look very closely at my blue one & you'll see it's also signed & #
there are 3. the inner one is pink (about 1/4"). the 2nd is yellow (about 1/4"). and the 3rd is black (about 1"). see them all now?
I just went to Michael's and dropped CAN $130 (tax included) just to frame my blue Boston pre-VFC poster! I can't wait to see how it turns out, though - it'll be my first professionally framed poster (my Toronto '03 was just placked).
Holy shit - that is a lot of money. You could have found cheaper places around here.

I've never framed any PJ posters before but now I'm gonna give it a try using the advice in this thread. But I have a question, I've noticed some people have put their concert tickets in with the poster, has anyone tried puttin in pictures they've taken from the show along with the poster? I was considering doing this and was looking for opinions from some of you that have done lotsa poster framing. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
When you get a matte for your poster is there a typical width around the poster that you have the matte cover? In other words: Would you typically run a 3 inch matte top/bottom/left/right?
That cat pic should be called Purrl Jam.
OMG! You have Boston '98. Damn you. Damn you to hell.
Jealosy gets me no where.
Just got this one back today!http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c233/tmlaabs/Framed_HOB.jpg
