Hi Robert,

I have a question for you regarding your frames. 

I have a downward sloping ceiling, the underside of a staircase from my 1st to 2nd floors, which is above the staircase that leads from my 1st floor to basement.  I want to place three 27" x 41" posters on that downward sloping ceiling.  If I were to use your frames, noting that the frames/posters would be sloping downwards at a roughly 45 degree angle, is there any chance that, over time, gravity would cause the posters to bulge outwards and/or fall out since the overlays are not very thick/solid?

Thanks.

Hello Carlos and thank you for your interest. I don't think you will have any problem at all! I just took one of my frames down that has about 6 Mondo Prints in it and put it at almost a 90 degree angle and did notice any major bulging. And those prints are heavier stock than a movie poster.

Plus you will only have one poster in the frame. The sides snap down pretty good but don't do any damage to the poster at all!

You can put up to a 1/4" standard and maximum in the Wide Border. And 1/8" Standard in the Thin Classic Standard Frame but we can cut it to accommodate up to 1/2" maximum, you would just have to tell me what you want.

Hope this helps!!!!

Don't want to speak for Robert, but if you need an overlay that is more rigid I think he said 1/8" acrylic would work in the frames as well. 

Thanks Harry!!!

I and my assist David took 30 mins yesterday to assemble an Italian1P and French 1P:

Clip all corners together:





Lay down the overlays:



Voila:

It's such a great poster.  One of my favs.

I wanted to pull mine out when Mel first posted his picture, but it's stuck at the bottom of a drawer.  Getting it out is easy, but putting all the posters back, one by one so they are perfectly aligned, is a bitch.  So it shall remain there unfortunately.
