    I've asked this before and someone gave me a couple of nice links, but the old HD screwed the pooch and needless to say they're gone. Anyway...


    Where can I get movie poster frames online? I'm not talking the $200/300 dollar ones but just some decent cheap ones? My local Suncoast used to carry them but have been out for months. Nowhere else seems to have them. Thanks.

    I use these inexpensive, lightweight foamcore frames:

    John,
    I don’t know if this is for you, but what I did on my last three poster frames was make them myself and for about only 5 bucks more than the ones at suncoast.
    I bought the 27” & 40” frame legs in a U-Frame kit from a craft store, then got foam core cut to 27x40, then went to Home Depot and had them cut a piece of pleixglass down to 27x40 and bang it was done. Far better than those Suncoast frames, I know because I have a half dozen or so.
    Here is a link of a pearl harbor one that I made.

    Matt that looks [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] ! Do you think that would work as well if you got the poster dry mounted?

    Kelly,
    I dont know.. I used photomount on the poster as well and that seemed relativly easy.

    Believe me, if I can frame anyone can frame. I am so technically challenged when it comes to stuff like the crafts.
