Framing Question

HN278253HN278253 ChicagoPosts: 10
Hey guys. Just a quick question. I just moved in to a new apartment and I obviously want to decorate it with all of the PJ posters i have framed. One of the rooms that I thought would be a cool place to hang one would be my bathroom. My apartment isn't super big so I have limited wall space. However, I thought about having the moisture and the constant changes in temperature might damage the poster over time. Have any of you guys had any problems hanging up posters in you bathroom? Have they been damaged? I tried googling but I kept getting different answers. I thought I would try to get a first hand experience from one of you guys. If you guys could help me out with this information, that would be awesome.

Thanks

    I've never done it. I'd advise against it. The moisture will not be good for them, even if it has a good bathroom fan, which a lot of apartments don't.

    Thanks. That's what I was thinking too. I guess I just wanted someone to say that it wouldn't be a problem. Just have to get a bigger apartment...

    If you wanna do it id make sure they were cheaper show posters or just regular readily available ones... Dont go hanging a kong, cracker jack, or pitt in the bathroom no matter how they're framed!

    don;t do it for anything worth a shit, the humidity buildup will eventually lead to mold, discoloration, and overall slow death for the print

    As a printmaker by degree, I beg of you not to hang a poster in your bathroom. Very bad things will happen.
