How Do I Frame a Poster? 3 Ways to Decorate the Office

HOW DO I FRAME A POSTER?

(3 Ways to Decorate the Office)

How to Frame a Poster

A simple way to quickly jazz up a space is to put up posters on the walls. You probably put up posters of your favourite band or superheroes in your bedroom when you were younger. Some of us have our favourite shots from our wedding photoshoot blown up and framed in our master bedroom. Many of us spend hours at the IKEA showroom looking through the many choices for photo frames.

Posters are great to decorate the office space as well. In a new office, the walls can be bare and dull, and you can quickly spice up the space by hanging up a few posters. Even better if the posters hold your corporate message, describe your company culture and values, and inform visitors to the office of your company history, milestones and achievements.

We have clients who receive posters sent to them from the corporate headquarters (HQ) and they need to get the posters framed up and displayed on the walls. There are many choices to get this done. You can make it a DIY project with a couple of workmates, purchase the frames and do the framing yourself. Or you can engage a professional display company to frame a poster for you.

Over the years, because we received so many enquiries from customers asking for these products and for advice on how to frame a poster, so we have started providing various options for framing of posters that work very well in a corporate setting, and lend a professional look to the space.

You can choose from Snapframes, Acrylic Frames or PVC Frame Capping.


1. SNAPFRAMES

Snapframes are great when you want a fast and easy way to get your posters framed. Using a spring mechanism on all 4 sides, the sides of the frame can be open and shut anytime you like. It snaps open and snaps shut. There is a clear protective sheet to overlay on your poster. Using a snapframe is really simple, just snap open all 4 sides of the frame, remove the clear protective sheet, place your poster against the frame backing, place the clear protective sheet over your poster, and snap shut the 4 sides of the frame – and you’re DONE! It probably wouldn’t take you more than a minute to do.

Fixing it on the wall is also easy, since the frame is quite lightweight. You can choose to affix the frame to the wall just by using heavy-duty mounting tape. And the next time you need to change the posters, you can do it without having to take the frames off the wall. Just snap open the 4 sides of the frame and remove the existing poster, and replace it with the new poster. It’s really user-friendly and we are sure you’ll love how simply it works.

We offer standard sizes for snapframes (see: What are common poster sizes?) as well as customised sizes too, if you need them customised to the size of your posters.

Snapframes are also frequently found in shopping centres and in elevators, too. They carry marketing posters showing the latest promotions happening in the malls. And because the information changes every month, mall management choose the snapframes for how easy it is to change posters regularly without having to take them off the walls when you are doing the changeover.

ADVANTAGE: EASY TO FRAME AND EASY TO CHANGE. LIGHTWEIGHT

 


2. ACRYLIC FRAMES

Another way to frame a poster is to sandwich it in an acrylic frame. Acrylic frames are clear perspex holders that can hold your posters with style. The glossy sheen of the acrylic surface gives a classic impressive look to any poster.

We offer standard sizes as well as customised sizes for acrylic frames.

The corners of the frames have chrome spacers that look very stylish and they hold the 2 pieces of acrylic together. Acrylic frames are a hit with customers for corporate setting because of how stylish and classy it looks in an office setting.

To change the posters, it is quite easy still. Just unscrew the spacers at the 4 corners and carefully remove the acrylic frame. Lay it flat on a table and open up the acrylic piece. Replace the poster, and you might even add a tiny piece of double-sided tape on the back of the poster (on the edges) to help keep the poster from sliding off-centre.

3. PVC FRAME CAPPING

Have a tight budget and want to keep expenses down? We suggest the PVC frame capping for your poster.

Unlike the first 2 options, PVC Frame Capping is a more permanent way of framing your poster. You cannot remove it and change to reuse your poster again. The first step is to take your rolled poster and mount it onto 5mm foamboard backing. It will be pasted onto the foamboard (this is the permanent part that’s irreversible). Then, the foamboard mounted poster will have PVC capping down around the perimeter of the poster (just the edges).

PVC Capping can be done in any size customised to your poster size. It is very lightweight and after you frame a poster, you can put it up on the wall using just velcro tape or double sided mounting tape.

ADVANTAGE: INEXPENSIVE OPTION COMPARED TO ACRYLIC FRAME & SNAPFRAME

How Can I Stop My Banner Stand From Falling Down?

How to Stop Banner Stand From Falling Down?

 

HOW CAN I STOP MY BANNER STAND FROM FALLING DOWN?

Having your banner stand falling down all over the place and all the time is not just an inconvenience, but can be downright embarrassing for the business. Most of us place banner stands at the entrance of our stores, office or place of business. Depending on how windy that area can be, whether it’s fully outdoor or partially outdoor, sudden gusts of wind can simply blow over the stand, and topple it forward, falling flat on the floor.

1. Place a Weight at the Base (especially for Pull Up Stand)

One way to keep the banner stand upright is to place some substantial weight on the base. If you are using a Pull Up Stand, you can place weighted objects at the legs, such as a brick or sandbags. Many customers do this, but we usually advise them from the outset to know the area where the banner stand will be placed. If you know it is an outdoor area and there is the potential of strong wind that will have your banner stand falling all the time, then you should choose more suitable stands such as the outdoor banner stand which comes with a water base to keep it weighted down.

2. Tie it Back Against the Wall

If there’s a wall near to where the banner stand is placed, you can secure the pole of the banner stand to the wall using a length of nylon string or rope. As the pole is usually behind the banner or poster that you are displaying, it will not be visible to your audience. This acts as a deterrent and will keep your banner stand falling down to the floor. However, it is not a 100% solution. Strong winds will have your banner stand flailing like a kite in a storm. Inevitable because the large surface area of the banner cannot escape the wind.

3. Buy a Display Stand with a Water Base

Both Option 1 and Option 2 still suggest that the better option is to purchase a display stand that can do the work you require it to. Knowing that you have a very windy area and that the banner stand will be placed outdoors, right from the outset, you should consider a display stand with a water base.

The outdoor banner stand comes with a water-filled base. When you are ready to display, fill up the water base and at its fullest, it will weigh 23kg. That will surely hold your banner down against the wind. When you are done and need to pack it up and carry with you, you can pour out the water, and it will only weigh 3kg when it’s empty. Very nifty solution!

 

On Damage And Dust

Banner stands that are placed outdoor or in very high traffic areas are prone to alot of wear and tear. Intentional or unintentional brushes with the banner, getting knocked down or being exposed to the elements. We urge customers to consider how they use the banner stands from the beginning and how to minimise exposure of the banner stand to damage and dust.

In some instances, it is entirely inevitable and we totally understand. Banners are part of the marketing arsenal for most businesses. You send them out to fight, come rain or shine, bearing your marketing message and call to action. We have seen customers bring these ‘soldiers’ back to us from the battlefield. Some have been standing outdoor for months and come back grimy and embittered. Some have been shipped all over the world, used and abused from city to city and then returned finally as a war hero. They do return to us, and we welcome them back like the veterans they are. You can send them back to us, even if they are missing a screw or got their leg chewed off.

We put them on our operating table and we try to save them. Sometimes a transplant is required. We need to cut out the old graphics and give it a fresh new look and dust it down a little.

But we’ll do it. The Bannerstand People will take care of it.
