crazy confusing crap new [re: Arthur0Dent]

It would appear to be the process of sticking the sides or the entire back of a poster to a support.

That's what I thought, but it never occurred to me that you could take this dry-mounted thingy and put it in a frame, I guess. As I understood it, a framed poster just goes glass-poster-cardboard or whatever's on the back. It never occurred to me that they'd be attached to each other. Is there an advantage to this? The links you provided seem to indicate that it's a bad thing - why would you do it if you don't have to?


- So, what you're saying is that you manipulated me.
- Yes, exactly.

I think it's cheaper. Mrs. Biddington seemed to suggest that professional support-attaching requires rice paper and acid free tape and whatnot. I guess it would be cheaper to just slop the poster down.
But I'm guessing.
I really have no idea.

This is the way I do it and it's much cheaper than having it dry mounted. But dry mounting looks better. No wrinkles. I've been battling within myself for years as to which way to do this. The only reason I've never dry mounted is 1.) because it decreases the value, and 2.) it's more expensive. But damn, it looks better.

Re: Protecting valuable posters new [re: Adam]  

Promos posters are a special situation, because they are made of that nice shiny cardboard anyways.

But I am a poster goddess: Smashing Pumpkins, David Byrne, Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Aimee Mann, A nice big one of Boston next to the window so I can look out and see the real thing, Alice in Chains, you know it. I'm a poster collector. But I've never really taken the "value" approach, or even pondered whether or not my posters could preservere in my little apartment. Framing would look nice..? Good luck!
