A Few Words About Sizing – You don’t stop fishing when you get old Vertical wall art
Typically posters come in a standard size, though there is no set rule as to what constitutes a poster vs. another piece of art.
As a general frame of reference, 24″ X 36″ is usually a larger movie size poster, 18″ X 24″ is often associated with medium-sized posters, and smaller sizes tend to run around the 11″ X 17″ range.
Always remember to measure your art yourself, though; the slightest of disparity between the listed measurements and the actual ones can make a significant difference when it comes time to frame!
Should You Use a Wood or Metal Frame? – You don’t stop fishing when you get old Vertical wall art
There are multiple layers to the ongoing wood vs. metal frame question.
First, let’s talk about the basics: here at Frame It Easy, we can cut metal frames to accommodate a larger size.
The biggest measurement our wood frames can be is 32″ X 42″. So if your poster exceeds that, you might want to go with a metal frame, which can go up to 42″ X 62″.
Beyond physical requirements, there are also stylistic things to take into consideration. Metal is better if you want a more vibrant or neon color. If, however, you want natural or earthy-looking hues, wood would be best.
Maybe, though, it’s not the material of the frame that matters as much as the shape and color of it. In which case, we got you covered, too.
What’s the General Shape And Design of the Art in Your Poster? – You don’t stop fishing when you get old Vertical wall art
Of course, posters themselves are often rectangular, but the art printed on them can be many different shapes.
Maybe the art on the poster has a lot of circles. Maybe it’s blocky. Either way, try to find something to compliment it.
For instance, our Hanover frame has a rounded off edge, as does our Hammond. Let’s say you’re framing the Shrek movie poster; it has a lot of bubble-looking letters, as well as the circular-looking antennae at the beginning of the logo. A Hanover or Hammond style would look great with that to accent the rounded designs.

The opposite is true for posters with blocky shapes and designs. The Bradford, Stafford, and Ashford would all be great, as they would mimic the straighter lines.
Of course, if you’re going for a contrasting effect, mix and match! It’s your frame, so have fun.
If you want something that will really stand out, the Granby would be a great ornate choice.
Consider The Thickness Of the Frame In Relation To The Poster – You don’t stop fishing when you get old Vertical wall art
Most posters are big, so you might want to have a thinner frame style displaying them. Let’s say you have a giant poster from one of the many Marvel movies, and you want it to be on full display, with as little frame as possible to potentially overpower it.
If this is the case, we would recommend using either the Ashford or the Hanover frame; both are about 3/8″ in thickness when looking at them straight on. Neither should be too noticeable, especially if you choose a corresponding color (more on that in a bit, though).
This is also something to keep in mind if you have limited display space, but still want to squeeze in one last poster before the blank area on your wall gets covered. If space conservation is on your mind, the narrower designs (Ashford and Hanover) would be best.
