Poster Framing

Discuss general aspects of Genii.

I've got some modern-day posters (the biggest is a Cards as Weapons one, 24x36) that I am planning to frame myself, and was wondering-- do most people mat their posters (my room is a somewhat small one), and if not, do you need a spacer to prevent the print from touching plexiglass?

Finally, if there's no mat, how does one archivally mount the poster to the back-- i.e. how do you attach the paper hinges?

Thanks,

Are you interested in preserving the value (and future value) of the poster, or just having a nicely framed poster? There are specific ways of mounting a poster on linen so that it retains its value, other methods of mounting can make it virtually worthless in terms of "collectability." My suggestion would be to go to Magicgallery.com and e-mail Charles Greene, the docent, to ask him about the best options. I'm sure he'd be happy to advise you. :)
