Very nice mate . . . a slight bamboo-ish asian feel which compliments the print nicely.

Looks great!!! The frame is a perfect match for the print! Love it!!
How much did that run you?



I was searching around for info on framing and came across this site. It had some good info on protecting your posters. So, I though I'd share.Hollywood

Same price as the print basically. Yeah quality framing is NOT cheap.

Wow, congrats Scott! Very nice framing job.
You just made me want this poster that much more. I actually made an offer on one that ended with no bids on ebay, but I haven't heard back from the seller.

Excellent choice on both the frame and matting, Scott. I have seen a few different frames for Kill Bill with an Asian or bamboo design to the frame, and I must say I think yours turned out the best. A very nice combination of subtlety and design.

That site is one of the first choices I came across when I first started looking into framing. While they are definitely a lot more affordable, they do have some down sides when considering framing screen printed prints.

The first glaring problem I see with that company is that they don't offer spacers or matting (site says custom matting is available upon special request). One or the other is needed to keep the print off of the glass. Over time the paint on a screen printed poster that is constantly touching the glass can rub off on that surface. Speaking of glass, they frame everything in plexiglass. While it is lighter and sometimes cheaper, plexi often develops a slight haze, collects dust and dirt easily, and is very prone to scratching and scuffing. Frames are also extremely limited and they appear to only offer metal.

If these weren't screen prints that used high quality inks and paints then I would have no hesitation using that company. Their acid free materials are still nice for single sheet and double sided movie posters.

Heh, I only learned all of this in the past couple of months; while I was researching the possibilities for my own framing. Bear in mind that I am no expert, I am merely passing along what I have learned. A lot about custom framing also reflects personal taste. While one person may hold one technique in high regard, another will come in and tell the other person how "wrong" they are. I think the use of plexi is one such debate.

If you ever have questions don't hesitate to ask. I have spoken to a few different framers from different areas about many of these subjects, and I can easily pass along the information that was passed to me.

Thanks Tony and good luck on your offer, hope it pans out.

Thanks for the kind words Ronald. I spent a lot of time deciding exactly what look I wanted, looked at as many different ideas in forums as I could and toyed with a lot of different options both online and at the framers. Almost went with some red in the matting but ultimately felt it was a bit much and pulled attention away from the red in the print itself. Even after getting it back from the framers I wasn't 100% sure I made the right decision leaving the red out but the more I look at it the more I like it and feel I made the right choice to favor subtlety.

Framing is a much more involved and challenging process than I expected, but it's very fun and allows one to put a personal touch on the artwork. Can't wait to plan out my Blade Runner print.
