just a friendly tip...don't hang pictures higher than doorways/windows.

i know that's hard when you're trying to hang a bunch on one wall, but it just looks better.

however, the framing looks really nice and clean.

are you married? man, she's a good woman if you get to hang anything you want wherever you want.

i like the RS covers, but you're missing the jim morrison death issue. i snagged a mint copy years ago for $100. i should frame it. are those originals or reprints of the cover? hard to tell.

when i get something framed i have em use mylar strips to hold the poster in place. its tricky sometimes on a s/n piece if the s/n is right on the edge. you need at least 1/8" to ensure the mylar cant be seen.

a friends family owns some framing stores and we have been known to do some midnight framing. as for free framing, take a number, i've got 200 prints at my house just for other people watiting to be done. maybe one day though.
