Tad late, but some nice looking frames there.

I bought these from Hollywood Poster Frames.
Don't think they are as thin as yours, but pretty thin.

Acid free packing and plexiglass.

Nice looking frames there, Richie.

And the basic black and simple, streamlined design lets the posters shine.  thumbup

Anyone have an idea what size custom frame I'd need for a linen backed one sheet?

I mean is it best to tag an extra inch onto a one sheet frame to fit?

Apologies if this seems like a dumb question.

When you say custom frame, do you mean custom made but that allows a switch of posters?  (e.g Spotlight Displays)
Mine are 28 x 42 fine for both one sheets, older one sheets, canadian older one sheets (28x42) and linen-backed OS.

Already done this ages ago but never got round to updating the thread  ;) , funnily enough I've just ordered some more thin black cardboard that I plan on sticking down as the current board is just floating.
I've also descovered that I'm happy with just the black boarder just at the top on 40" posters no need really to have top/bottom as your eye naturally ignores the bottom not having one.

Yes, I have a few linen backed one sheets that I want to display and it needs to be very easy to switch from poster to poster.

I'm based in the UK and its quite difficult to find the right frames.

Just a small update to the boarder issue when using 27"x40" posters on my 27"x41 sexy slim frames  :-*
I ditched my original idea of using slim black cardboard and found someone selling book repair tape on Amazon, it's ideal really as it's self-adhesive and acid-free.
Here are some pics of it being applied and finished>
Packaging, Note 3cm is the perfect width for 40" posters.


Applying:


Close up of tape applied, Note the tape looks a bit gray in this shot but it's really jet black and you can see it's made of material/pattern which you can't see from distance/hanging:


Poster hanging with black repair tape at top and close up on second pic:


This is probably the best solution for using 40" posters on 41" frames, I've ordered 2 more repair tapes for my other 2 frames  thumbsup.gif

Just a small update to my sexy slim frames, I snapped the corner off the perspex while swapping the posters around, So i of course went ott when ordering some new ones  >:D The ones that came with the frames were only 1.5mm thick as pictured in the comparison pic, The new ones I ordered are 4mm  faint2.gif So should be me proof  eyeroll

New 4mm goodness>


Comparison 4mm>1.5mm (look how spindly the 1.5 looks !)


4mm in frames  bed1


With the new thicker perspex I no longer need the frames backing spring clips..Yay

Too bad early pictures aren't there.  So the problem was the aluminium frame behind too wide for 1.5mm perspex ?

Have consider buying these special art clips (sorry no idea of name in English) - https://www.asler.com/website/image/product.template/2518_4a72fd8/image/300x300
Looking for East African movie posters at fair price to complete my portfolio, if you have any in stock, let me know.  Thanks

The problem was me snapping the corner off the old perspex, nothing to do with the clips.
Thanks guys  :)
