Just go to amazon and search for ďDC poster portfolioĒ and theyíll all show up in the search results.




I got the Lau one and was blown away how good it is for ~$20. I'm getting the Middleton and Cho ones and probably Lee.

I hope for a Conner, Booth, Frison, Dodson, Finch, Fabok, Campbell, and more.

I absolutely love this one. Simple, just a few brush strokes and here is Batgirl.

Is his left foot on a broken bar stool? I guess the new Logan PF's bar room brawl is with Juggs.

I tend to think that when a work is remarkably done, it doesnít need a framework - especially a big one- to showcase it. A simple glass for protection can be enough.
Anyway, an artist rarely paint his work in a frame.
If everyone thinks a work looks better when surrounded by a frame, maybe the artist could paint himself a fake frame around his work? A win/win situation.

Sorry I didn’t clarify , I was particularly talking about the glass/acrylic cover. Store bought frames cause the quality of the print to dim. The first print I bought in the tube I framed in a michaels frame it was about 39.99 it was the better quality one. When I hung it up next to the print I had framed from sideshow it didn’t even compare. It look just like a $20 poster.
So I have these
1 in a basic frame
3 in sideshow frames
And 4 in custom framing from michaels with uv/museum glass.
Canvas

Custom frame is phenomal barely any glare at all.
Sideshow is really good but a fair amount of glare still.
The basic framing I can barely see the print with the light bouncing off of it so placement is key. And it is just dull.

The canvas is def the best handown of course.

I just got my first Canvas print and i'm trying to figure out how to display it. I might get it stretched and then do a thin border around it.

Thanks for the advice, but good quality framing cost more then $300 here in LA, I am really regret getting frame one by sideshow now

I know I'm gonna get flamed but I got really good framing at Michael's. I thought the materials and options were just fine for art prints. OG art you might want to go a step above Michael's.
