The best part of the foil prints is when it catches the light just right and you catch a momentary quasi-reflection, briefly making you question every aspect of your life that led you to framing a limited edition Stargate poster.

And then you smile, ever so slightly.

And cry. So hard.

Semi-related... but has anyone found a decent 18x36 frame that doesn't break the bank? Just really struggle with this size unless I go custom.
Depends what you mean by "break the bank, " but Spotlight Displays does custom sizes. That might be a good option if you want to switch out multiples of this size.

I guess I’ll put it this way, the prints I’m looking to display aren’t worth spending that sort of money. They’re just cool things to look at, so cheapo Michael's poster frame type stuff. But everything that’s 18 x 36 I can find are custom stuff. Anyway, no worries. Thanks!!

Yeah, if we're talking of-the-shelf cheapies with no UV protection and cardboard backing, they have a $15 24x36 on the website. :D

Anytime anyone has this inner deep rage towards foils or any variants, while its definitely fun to have something different just remember that these actually help us out so much. With costs of printing and all other fees, it just definitely helps us do more projects.

Its also like when people complain about lenticulars, which is something that has been a part of movie posters since the 60s.
