If you have invested in the production of a poster for your business or organisation you want it to be as effective as possible. One of the best ways of protecting a poster is to place it in a frame. Of course, you may be asking yourself how much this is going to cost you. If you have already spent a significant amount of money in the production of the poster itself you may not relish the thought of a large amount of additional expense.
The truth is that there are different options you may want to look at when it comes to framing a poster. We are going to take a look at why framing a poster can be so important. We are also going to examine what framing options are available and what cost implications there are.
Why would you want to frame your poster?
A poster is an excellent advertising aid as long as it looks good; let’s face it no-one is really going to be attracted by a poster that looks shabby and has seen better days. One of the most common reasons for framing a poster is to protect its condition and keep it looking good.
You may also want to frame your poster to prevent it from being stolen or defaced. If you spend money on a lockable frame you can hang your poster safe in the knowledge that it will remain in place.
Of course, another very good reason for wanting to place a frame around a poster is that it looks good. A professionally fitted frame really helps to show off the content of the poster.
What are your framing options?
It’s certainly possible to purchase a frame yourself, and fit it to your poster, for less than $AUS 10. This may sound like a good idea, from a cost saving point of view, but is it really your best option? You need to consider that you do not have a great deal of experience in framing so you are unlikely to be able to set the poster off to its best advantage.
You also need to think about the quality of the frame you are investing in. It’s really important to invest in a frame that is going to last. You want the frame to look good in the long term, and to continue offering protection to the poster. You do not want to have to continually spend money on replacing the frame.
If you really want to protect your poster, and display it well, you should speak to an expert in poster frames about the best framing option to suit your needs. They will advise you on the type of frame you need; you may even decide to invest in a light box to illuminate your poster. An expert will also be able to provide you with a quote so that you know exactly how much the framing will cost before the job commences.
