Hello there! I'm Lisa Ketty, the sole creator and curator behind HiPosterShop. Today, I'm here to share some insights and tips on selecting the perfect frame for your poster art. After all, a frame isn't just a protective boundary; it's an extension of the art itself.
Why Frame Your Poster?
A frame does more than just protect your poster from external elements. It enhances the visual appeal, drawing attention to the artwork and complementing its design. At HiPosterShop, I ensure that every poster is of museum-quality, made on thick matte paper. These posters can brighten any environment, and the right frame will only elevate this effect.
Considerations When Choosing a Frame
Material: Whether it's wood, metal, or acrylic, the material of the frame should resonate with the aesthetics of the poster and the room it's placed in. For instance, a minimalistic art piece might look best in a sleek metal frame.
Size: Ensure the frame isn't too thick or thin for the poster size. For larger posters, like those in the large posters for living room collection, a sturdier frame might be more appropriate.
Color: The frame color should complement the poster without overshadowing it. Neutral colors like black, white, or wood are versatile choices. However, for vibrant posters like the one happy citrus poster, a colorful frame might be a bold choice.
Matting: This is the border around the poster inside the frame. It can provide additional protection and enhance the poster's visual appeal. For a deeper dive into framing techniques, check out this comprehensive guide on framing your own art.

Q: How do I measure my poster for a frame?
- A: Measure the height and width of your poster and choose a frame that corresponds to these dimensions. Always leave a little extra space if you're considering matting.
Q: Can I get a custom frame from HiPosterShop?
- A: Currently, I offer a curated selection of frames that complement the posters in my shop. For custom requirements, it's best to visit a local framer.
Q: How do I care for my framed poster?
- A: Keep it out of direct sunlight, and clean the frame with a soft cloth. For the glass or acrylic front, use a cleaner that's safe for that material.
