Decent quality for the price. Picked up 4 of these today. Regular price is $29.99 per. Got 4 for $44.97 + tax. About $12 per frame out the door. biggrin.gif
Have to travel to the store though.

Here is a link to the product:

Michael's has nice frames for the price with the coupon.. I have a couple of those. The only problem with these in particular is that a standard movie poster is 27 X 40. They do have some 27 X 40s too but not at these prices.

There are several sizes of posters out there, and Michaels only has frames that fit a few.

Post 1992 1 sheet posters are 27x40 (earlier were 27x41). Michaels sells 2 poster frames that fit these. One is a cheap clip on over polycarbonate, and the other is a plastic frame that you can generally get for $25-30 on sale.

Half sheets are 22x28 and this is a common size. Unfortunately, the industry stopped making half sheet posters in the mid-80s, so this only works for classic titles.

Lobby cards are 11x14. Very common size with a lot of frames available. US stopped producing lobbies in the '90s, but they are still produced in smaller quantities for the european markets.

Michaels always has some sort of a sale, and I have never paid retail for a frame there.

Works for me. I was on a budget but wanted to spice up the wall. Got four 24x36 posters + 4 frames for less than $100 bucks (other poster is on the opposite wall). I'm happy!
