I saw a number of threads discussing framing of movie posters, but the posters in question are usually modern reprints with very little collectible value. In that case any cheap frame would do. Does anyone here have experience getting an original poster (that could appreciate in value quite considerably over the next few years) framed ? I happened to pick up a poster of my favorite 70's flick 'Chinatown' on e-bay. The artwork on this poster is truly exquisite (IMHO) for a poster from the 70's. Here's a picture - http://www.filmsite.org/posters/chin.jpg . I got a surprisingly good deal on an original poster in almost pristine condition. However, it seems that it is going to cost me an arm and a leg to get it framed. Of course, I am looking at a "conservation" frame and after some research on the web, I figured that I need UV-resistant plexi-glass to prevent fading over time, acid-free foamcore backing, acid-free matting to keep the poster from touching the plexi, and a frame (any basic frame would do, I guess). I have been making the rounds of all the local framing stores and their estimates for the materials alone run into several hundred dollars (which exceeds what I paid for the poster on e-bay). I am thinking of buying all the materials separately and putting the frame together myself. I guess I could get the frame from any online place, but getting the plexi, foamcore, etc shipped could be a hassle. If anyone else has had experience putting together a "conservation" frame on your own, please share your information here. Any suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
