I'm bumping this question. I was about to place an order on white frames last night before I realized that the paper isn't white and I didn't like the way it was going to look. Does anyone have pictures of any of the other colors?

Obviously a piece of glass or plexi is very solid, you can tap your finger against it with no fear of impacting the art behind the glass. Can the same be said for the overlays with these frames?
Can anyone answer this? Also any issues having prints stick to the overlay like it can with glass

It won't protect it as much as glass, but it would certainly take a good wallop to do real true damage to the print, at least IMO. Tapping your finger against the overlay won't damage the print.
I haven't had any issues with the print sticking to the overlay but it has only been a few months at this point.

All the posters are looking great and are going with the interior of the house. I also have some signed posters but never put them up on display. After looking at all the great pics of posters, I have also decided to frame my posters.

I was looking for frames at websites like http://www.arttoframe.com/24x36_picture_frames/1 and http://www.aaronbrothers.com/products/poster-frames but I m confused about mating. I have a poster of size 20*30, so should I go for mating or not?

^ You're in the Spotlight Displays thread, so I'd say forget the damn mats, and pick up some Spotlight Displays frames. :pint:

We could croak any day, so just enjoy these while you can. I just swapped my prints for the week. :)

I disagree, I think it protects better than glass. Glass can break/shatter and thus ruin a print. These are a plexi and cannot break if dropped, etc.

You're probably right- it certainly wasn't a knock against the frames. I was thinking in terms of if someone, for whatever reason, fell or slipped and put their hands into one of these. But yeah could break glass that way too.

Tried out the glow tonight doing just that. I flashed the poster for a few seconds with a small UV flashlight and it looked great.
