Here at Fabulous Frames & Art, we design many different custom framing solutions for our clients, ranging from family photographs to priceless works of art to three-dimensional keepsakes such as fishing lures and baby shoes. We recently had the pleasure of framing a 2010 Coachella poster using this ornate frame in a glossy red finish. The result is spectacular!

Here is another fun example — a vintage Coca Cola poster featuring Santa Claus, framed in a burled wood frame with a fillet (matching interior frame inside the mat opening):

Another beautiful example is this vintage New York poster, framed in a distressed black wood frame with a subtle copper finish, reminiscent of Art Deco architecture. The mat is a dramatic black:

Because posters tend to be large and are often quite brightly colored, they are more commonly framed in simple, neutral frames. We have tons of options in wood and metal, in a wide range of finishes.

Below is a poster by Charley Harper for Hamilton County Parks, entitled Space for All Species. See more of the Brussels home of Fat Cat’s home in Brussels on Flickr, and also check out the Fat Cat blog. The wooden frame is white, matching the color of the paper:

A tour of Jean’s home in Portland, OR on Design*Sponge shows a simply framed Charley Harper poster for the Michigan Audubon Society. The simple wood tone of the frame picks up the brown colors in the poster:

An even more minimal custom framing solution for a poster is this example of yet another Charley Harper poster, this one from his gorgeous National Parks series commissioned by the U.S. Department of the Interior, framed using a simple black metal frame:
