I purchased a 18X24 white frame for one of my new posters and my experience with Robert and All Things Spotlight Displays was very good.

The customer service from Robert was amazing. He was in communication with me during the shipping process and was pleasant to talk with.

The frame is better then I expected. It comes with instructions and it is easy to place print(s) inside. The frame it self (18x24) came with the borders attached, all I had to do was pop up the place holders on the side of the frame and place my print between the overlays provided within the frame. Again very easy and the quality is good to keep prints safe and protected while inside the frame. There is an emphasis put towards measuring your print and sending All Spotlight Displays the correct print measurements in order for them to make the right sized frame (this is important since each frame is cut to the measurements provided).

The combination of Robert being awesome and the quality of the frame I will be a repeat customer.

Thanks Robert! :pint:

Grabbed an 18x24 a few weeks back to test these out. Seems like a pretty sweet product so far.

Just got this on the wall a few minutes ago. Don't mind the pencil marks that I need to touch up!

I'm thinking about getting one of these to try. It seems like a pretty good amount of time and I haven't seen any complaints. One of my concerns was surface damage on the edge where the frame folds in and holds. It doesn't sound like that's really been an issue. My question now is how it works to hold front to back if there's 1/4 inch of space to take up. Obviously it has to be tight to prevent any sliding of the poster or flopping of the exterior layer. How does it then allow you to add a bunch of posters at once and not become too tight? (Hopefully this makes sense. :) )

the sides 'snap' into place and there's a fair amount of tension. The clear protective overlay takes the tension so the poster doesn't get marks on the side. I can see how it would be fine to store 1-2 extra prints in the frame.

These things are great and I now have 8 in the house including these 3 that I put up last week in the office.

Whoop dang, I should have watched an instruction video or something. A French sized 63x47 frame was a doozy for one person to hang by themselves. Required: measuring and mounting empty frame to wall first. Second, trying to hold a sandwich of plastic sheets and the print together while narrowly fitting them into a very precisely machined frame without slippage and then snapping the four sides together. Once empty frame is mounted it cannot be removedp

I got so hot I stripped naked by the end and prayed that my beer belly would be enough counter pressure to hold the whole thing in place while I tired to secure it.

Ended up taping large lengths of dog-eared blue tape around outside of print/plastic sleeve sandwich so it would stop falling apart, after securing four sides, opened one side at a time and removed tape and secured sandwiched print again as I went around the piece side by side


Recommendation:

Machine a thin outer outer metal rim that slides around sandwiched print and plastic sheets so that person hanging it has a solid piece they are moving into the mounted frame, at least for pieces this big


Or post video link in packing materials showing the easy way to hang this that I must have overlooked


I am happy now, put it took a handful of aleeve and Tylenol to get me back to that place


Happy with the aesthetic

I pulled the trigger and got a custom sized Spotlight frame for my Sperry Mogwai '09. I am more than pleased with the quality and look, and the packaging was second-to-none. I will definitely be ordering more in the future and to anyone on the fence -- you won't regret it!

Here's a video from the company that might be helpful. First post, after scrolling a bit, there's a pic of how the frames work.
Basically attach the frame to the wall then put the poster between the plastic sheets they provide, and finally 'snap' the frame on top of the sheet/poster.
