Hello - Newbie Political/Military Poster Collector
« on: April 20, 2017, 02:58:17 PM »
Hello,

I am so glad this this forum exists! I'm new to the hobby and have taken to begin to collect vintage political and military posters. I work in the public policy realm and have always been fascinated with the power of pictures and propoganda.

However, I'm beginning to spend a little more money and figured it's probably the right time to learn about how to take care of my things (framing, backing, etc.)

For example, here is my most recent purchase http://m.ebay.com/itm/201889183074. Normally, I'd swing by a big box retailer and just grab a frame, but I'm gathering that may not be the right approach.

I look froward to contributing when I can!

Best,
KC

welcome to the jungle

my preference for linenbacking:
I don't do it. I collect paper, not linen

my preference for frames:

Sue will take good care of you

do not use glass. glass transfers heat to the paper & dries it out
on plexi, I prefer clear. I think anti-glare surfacing makes it more difficult to see the poster (creating a smoke cloud over the image, if you understand my meaning
