Hi All,

Here's my dilemma, the house we purchased already have these nice 27x40 snap poster frames which look great but I really want some video game posters instead of movies, which seem to ONLY be available in 24x36.

WTH? Anyone know of a place to get video game posters at movie poster size?

Thanks

I don't know of any.

You could make mattes out of black construction paper and place the game posters behind them. Normally I would recommend using matte board, but the snap frames use a non-glare plastic that probably won't work well with the poster being set back. The construction paper is thinner.

You can cut down the frames, although that requires a good mitre saw and is a lot of work.

You could sell the frames (to me smile.gif ) and purchase smaller ones.

I agree! Just mat them. It will likely look better anyway.
