Determine the correct poster frame size

Large frames, such as the 24 x 36 poster frames, are designed for oversize prints that are usually made from thin paper. For this reason, the frames are constructed so the poster fits snugly. To get the correct size for wall art decor, measure the length and width of the print. Most frames list measurements for the image that fits inside and not the measurement of the frame itself. For example, an 18 x 24 poster frame is designed to fit an 18 x 24-inch poster. Although rare, if the listed measurement is for the frame, then choose one that is 1 inch wider and longer than the poster.

Poster frame materials

Frames for large prints come in a variety of materials. Choosing the best material for posters often depends on personal choice and the intended look and feel.

  • Wood poster frames provide an elegant or rustic look
  • Metal options give off a modern feel
  • Plastic frames are lightweight and come in many colors
  • Clear or floater products have no visible frame and allow eyes to focus on the picture

Poster frame colors

The color of the frame may affect how the image looks when hung on the wall. You can pick a color from the picture and purchase a frame of the same shade. This puts focus on a certain aspect of a picture. For instance, a pink frame with an image of a ballerina in a pink tutu will focus on the dancer. If the words are the most important aspect of the image, choose a frame the same color as the text. For example, choose a black poster frame for an image with black writing.

Mat or no-mat poster frames

A mat is a thin piece of paper or cardstock that adds an additional frame around the image. Many document frames come with mats, and they work well with smaller or brightly colored posters. They help images stand out even more and create a layered look. A mat is also useful for precious, antique pictures that need extra protection. Use archival, acid-free mat materials to help keep the image safe so it lasts many years.
