    Might be a dumb question but if my poster is 18x24 (Portland Emek) whats a good size frame/mat size? Thanks again!

    The mat usually has a 2' border so 20x26.

    If you go to americanframe.com you can just put in what size the poster is and then pick the mat color and they will do the sizing.

    Not Pearl Jam but I love this poster. I was able to get Chris to sign it on his way into the venue last year. It's actually signed by him twice(you can barely see the 1st sig in silver) because my brand new Sharpie barely worked when he signed it. Luckily his body guard had a black one on him!

    Love this poster! I have it too. Reminds me of the one from his 2011 tour with the snake.
    Beavis: All my friends are brown and red? What does that mean?
    Butthead: It means that his friends are like turds and that they like suck.
    Beavis: Heh heh. Oh yeah. Yeah! Get those spoons out of my face before I shove them up your butt!
    Butthead: Huh huh.

    I am looking to frame about 5 posters and do not want to spend 300-500 per poster to get it professionally done. I have not framed anything in quite some time, but when I went to frame my Edmonton 11 on American Frames it was like $150.00. I guess my questions are, does that sound right cost wise? Is there a better place to go? What else do I need besides a Mat and frame?

    Honestly, I have no idea what I am doing any help would be greatly appreciated. I have some nice valuable posters that I do not want laying around anymore. Thanks in advance!!

    Lookin for some advice here. I had put one of my posters in a cheap frame temporarily till I can afford to get it done better. Just took it out to move and it looks like bacon. Anyone have any ideas on fixing this, or is it shot? Thanks

    Well I replaced the normal backing with Acid-free, and it's only been about 5 months (my Tampa '16) just looks like moisture got to it , must not have been sealed well enough? Just wondering if anyone has experience/knows any way to fix it before I start looking for a new one

    It sounds like it's wavy because of the way it was framed. The poster is standing upright and eventually gravity starts taking effect. You can Sangwich it between two pieces of cardboard that are either the same size or bigger than the poster itself.
    Even posters that are professionally framed can't have this happen to them over a great amount of time. As long as there's no creases you can flatten it back out again.

    And make sure the print never touches the glass. The ink can stick to it over time. You can use acid-free tape from the back of the print to the cardboard to keep it upright
    Hope this helps

    Are there 12x36 frames? All I see at stores are 11.75x36 frames. Anyone know if you can shove that extra quarter inch in there? Yea yea... that's what she said.

    Won't work unless you trim it and I wouldn't recommend that. I tried to use one for my munk one Toronto from 2011. Had to return it and got a custom frame from American frame.

    Nice job on the Faile! I might use the black/red theme on mine

    To the guy looking for framing help --I rarely frame posters as well so i took a chance with Hobby Lobby this weekend because of the UV glass and acid free mat/backing. $86 after 50%off frames and 40% off mats coupons. Im happy with it. Watched them the whole time. Better job than i couldve done and very careful with it.

    Yep. I've had a bunch of posters framed at Hobby Lobby and they've done a great job for a reasonable price.

    You actually watched them frame the poster?? I usually just drop mine off and pick it up a few days later whenever it's done.

    This was done at hobby lobby. Very happy with the way it came out. I believe I paid around $150, but 3 different color mat and the tickets/sticker are to blame for that.
