Hi JP,

I get mine from here http://www.artdiscount.co.uk I use 2 sheets at 10mm thickness for attending events while I store everything flat between two sheets of 5mm thickness. They do 10 sheets at £50 I believe. Ordinarily, I'd use tubes at events but I knew I was buying the metal Die Hard which would obviously present an issue!!

Though I think Hobbycraft don't do anything bigger than A1 which is smaller than 24x36 sadly.

I used http://modelshop.co.uk/ in the end. Sizes are a little smaller than A0 and they are quite cheap. I'm sure Fitz or someone recommended them a while back.

So it looks like Stout will have his lotto for his Goonies print tomorrow.

If there is anyone isn't interested in it for themselves and isn't entering for trade bait.
Please can you enter to help me out.

More than happy to throw a print/££ in for your time.

And just so you know this is a print that I would keep, I am a huge Goonies fan.

Here's the dimensions of the frame I ordered. Think I left a gap of about 7mm on the sides, maybe 1cm top and bottom...
Frame Size: 276 X 349mm
Image Size #1: To Take Size 142 X 215mm
The paper was smaller than the frame, but had to allow for image alignment
