How do I install or replace a poster in the frame?
There are four sides to the frame. The frame’s sides are actually hinges that open from the inside outward like a door. The hinges open up and outward by getting your finger under the inside edge of the frame side and pulling upward to open the frame. Do this operation for all 4 sides of the frame to expose the poster edges and clear cover. Remove the cover and poster and replace the poster with your new poster. Cover your poster with the frame’s protective clear cover and close the hinges one by one. You may need to perform this several times to get the poster seated correctly in the frame. The poster and/or clear protective cover may need trimming with scissors initially to match the frame’s inner dimensions as needed. For posters that are not large enough to fit in the frame correctly, consider using reusable wall poster adhesive gum to hold the poster in place within the frame.
How do I mount the frame on the wall?
With the frame’s hinges open you will find 4 screw holes drilled in the aluminum frames. Use these holes to securely mount your frame to the wall.
DON’T FORGET: Our frames require an AC powered outlet in order for the LED lights to work. If you want to hide the power cords for your frame we suggest getting an electrician to install a power outlet behind the frame location on the wall. Make sure to locate the power backbox where all the frame’s bulky cable ends will reach the box location (upper right corner). Adding a light switch to the circuit works best since you can turn the frame on and off with a light switch. We offer high voltage back boxes for locating the frame’s power outlet, 12v transformer and cords.
Where do I get more posters that fit these frames?
Currently we only offer a small number of posters that fit our frames. In the near future, we will be working towards offering a more complete catalog of movie posters that fit our frames. Please contact us through our contact form for specific poster requests.
(Frame fits 24 1/4" x 36 1/4” paper posters)
Why don’t my own 27” x 40” movie posters fit your Back-lit Frames?
There are many different sizes of movie posters on the market today. Although our frames do not fit the more standard 27" x 40" posters, our frame size is more likely to fit in the wall space you have. When we considered the larger frame size we realized that 24” x 36” fit more wall applications such as walls with wainscoting and other features. We settled on a 24” x 36” poster opening with a ¼” overlap to hold the print in place. Currently we offer a small selection of posters that fit our frames (24 ¼” x 36 ¼”), but there are various poster shops online that are more than willing to reproduce posters to match our frame dimensions for you. In the near future, we will be working towards offering a more complete catalog of movie posters that fit our frames. Please contact us through our contact form for specific poster requests we may be able to fulfill.
