Ideas for Framing Posters
Posters and pictures are the best ways to create fond memories. Below are some ideas for framing posters. These ideas can be used for framing small, medium as well as large posters.
Buy a Frame that Complements the Poster
The frame should complement the poster. It should therefore be supportive to the idea and concept of the poster so that it does not come across as jarring for the viewer. For instance, if you have just bought a poster of a prominent rock group, it would be poor fashion sense to have an elaborate, Victorian frame with golden tinges. In the same vein, if you have a photo or poster with a number of colors or intricate artwork, like a sci-fi movie poster, or a beautiful blowup of a moment in your family, you should look for a frame that justifies the photograph or the poster.
Go for Basic Colors
When deciding on the frame for the poster, remember to choose a color that does not irk or take a more prominent tone as compared to the poster itself. Use basic colors like black, off white and gray. Other than the basic colors, there are some frames that have subtle designs and unconventional colors that look quite good without being too gaudy or overly colorful.
Ensure Proper Strength
The basic requirement of a poster frame is to allow for a sturdy support for the picture or poster. This allows the poster or picture to bear the daily wear and tear that it may go through. Therefore, taking into account the actual size of the poster, you should determine the dimensions of the frame. Look for a frame that is strong enough to have 4, 6, 8 or any number of nails that would be required to mount the poster onto the wall.
Another important tip to keep in mind is to make sure that the size of the frame matches the size of the poster. A badly-sized frame can not only make the poster look bad, but can also damage the poster by having rolled edges. Worse still, it can cut off edges due to paucity of space.
Pick the Right Material
Poster frames can be made of wood, metal, plastic or several other materials. Keep in mind your home and the material that you would be comfortable using and caring for. If a metal frame is not taken good care of, it might rust and that would damage the poster. If you have a wooden frame, it is necessary to paint and polish the wood so that the wood is saved from any damage occurring from natural causes.
These are just some ideas for framing posters. Keep in mind that when framing posters, you can be as creative as you were when you actually took the photograph or decided on the concept of the poster.
