In recent weeks, Posterific had received a few queries on customised framing from multiple customers through chat on our Lazada, Shopee platforms and WhatsApp text.
In this blog post, we will explain more about our products and show you through the photographs to help you to understand our products better.
What is Customised Framing?
At Posterific, we offer framing service for different dimensions / sizes of posters that are sold at our online store. We can frame these posters of Maxi (61 cm x 91.5 cm), Mini (40 cm x 50 cm) and Giant (100 cm x 140 cm).
The framed poster is an option to display your favourite poster on the wall without damaging the poster. Without framing the poster, the poster is likely to be displayed on the wall by using double-sided cellophane tape or blu-tac on the back side of the poster. Over time, the tape or blu-tac used will disintegrate or damage the paper of the poster.
The material used for the poster to be mounted on is made of wood. The poster will be mounted permanently using a special wet glue. The sides of the poster (thickness of 2 cm) are taped with a black tape to hold the poster on to the wood. Hence, the poster cannot be removed once it is mounted on the wood.
Once the poster is mounted, a layer of transparent plastic will be wrapped over the mounted poster. The plastic will be stapled at the back of the wood. This is to protect the poster from any scratches.
How to Display on the Wall?
Th standard way of displaying is to hang the poster using a nylon string attached at the back of the framed poster.
Otherwise, we also provide an alternative displaying method. It is called the “M” hook. This will only be provided upon request.
Expansion & Contraction of Posters
Remember about the wet glue which I mentioned earlier? Due to the paper material of the poster, a slight expansion will occur on the paper when the wet glue is applied on. Once the glue has dried up, the paper will contract. The paper may not contract back to its original dimension of the poster. Hence, if you are puzzled why the posters that you have ordered are not of the same dimension as stated, please do not worry!
Warping Issue of the Framed Posters
Once the poster is framed, we would recommend you to not store the item in a hot and humid conditioned area. This would cause the wood to warp (expand or contract) in the aforementioned conditions.
How to Deliver to You?
All the framed poster is wrapped in a protective bubble-wrapper. This is to ensure the poster is protected inside. Once it is wrapped, we will secure the item in a cardboard box. Oh, not forgetting, “Fragile” stickers are pasted on the box to ensure careful handling by the delivery partners.
