Large Galko Poster(s) - Framing Advice?Large Galko Poster(s) - Framing Advice?

Hi all! Recently my husband and I received an interesting piece of merchandise for our collection.

We bought this amazing and huge double sided poster of Galko! The poster is 70 x 33 inches, but the only trick is...

The poster is actually three separate posters, separated into segments like the one above! Which leaves us befuddled on how to frame it. In order to create the proper image, the three posters need to overlap somewhat by about an inch. However, we don’t want the posters to slip around inside the frame when we hang it.

How would you all recommend we frame this huge poster(s)? I appreciate any advice you can offer and let me know if there’s any extra info I can provide!

WanderingWastrel (1 mese/i fa) #42087722Self-adhesive foamboard. You can place each piece on the foamboard such that the parts that are supposed to overlap do overlap, and the adhesive will keep them in place. (I've often toyed with the idea of doing a tutorial post on how to mount posters on foamboard for framing, but wasn't sure anyone would be interested.)
Then once it's mounted, you can get a frame made for that exact size of the joined poster, or for a frame sized so that you can use a mat board around it to be all fancy-like.

If you want a real frame, you’re definitely gonna have to take it to a shop. They can make custom frame and glass as well as mount the image. There should be different options of glasses and materials to be as cost effective as you want.

My boyfriend and I have a shop we go to for all the art we have.

You could frame all 3 separately and then hang them together with some space in between if you wanna get artsy, haha

If you have money to throw at the problem... take it to a professional framer.

If you don't, ensure you're using appropriate materials for framing, otherwise issues may crop up later (adhesives going mank, degrading, or wrong kind of materials reacting with your poster... though the latter's probably less of an issue with a poster?).

The pictures have good amount of edges by the looks of it, so you could tape it down with some framer's tape (should really do this to a back mat), then use a window mat on top. All the things I've got framed have mount board on top of the subject, and imo framed items look WAY better with this border - border size & colour dependent on the subject. Only unfortunate thing is with that size, you're probably going to have to cut it yourself (or see if you can sufficiently bribe someone with the tools to do it). Some hobby stores do precut sizes, but this looks nonstandard size to me.

When I framed these cards, I used UHU Patafix Invisible pads.
These are double sided pads made of a light adhesive that can be removed without damaging the surfaces they're glued to (no tear, no residue and no oily stain).
I'm not sure the UHU brand is available in the US but there probably are other brands that produce the same sort of thing.
Maybe ask your local arts and crafts store for something that has the same properties.
