shinhawk (3 years ago) #3089960Those look really cool. I want to frame my shitajikis as well. On that website you provided, did you get frames that match the shitajikis exactly or do they need to be slightly bigger?
Frames that match them exactly. The frame manufacturer makes the frame based on the internal measurements, so you have to provide them the exact measures of the outside of whatever you want framed.

Note that unlike the poster (which I mounted on adhesive foamboard myself), with the shitajikis I just ordered with the frames their corrugated plastic white backing boards. So the shitajiki are resting between the plastic of acrylic front, and the plastic of the backing board, then held in place by the metal clips which (with that framing system) slip under the back edge of the frame and push everything against the front edge of the frame.

That way not only are the shitajiki not damaged or anything, but you can use the same frames to switch out different shitajiki when you want.

Lyncfs (4 years ago) #2611757Thanks for the details! I see you live in Texas! Me too and your Love Live collection is so nice! I was looking at the stick posters and they are so pretty but how do you display them due to the awkward size?

I don't have the stick posters up yet. :D But I can tell you what I plan to do, which is also what I did with the main poster in the picture up there.

I will take each poster, and carefully mount it to self-adhesive foamboard backing. Then I will measure their actual size, and custom order frames to those measurements. I've been using this place www.wholesalepo... and their service has been pretty good (the one time they messed up one part of an order, they quickly shipped the correct frame part without argument or any extra charge on my part). Then I can hang them in the custom frames.

If this sounds very expensive, it's because it's very expensive. But it's the only way to get good looking anime posters framed, because in Japan even the 'standard' size posters are different than the 'standard' sizes used in the U.S. (If you're really bored, you can learn more about international paper sizes at www.papersizes.... ; generally Europe uses A sizes, Japan B sizes, and the US just makes up everything.)

This is why most people go with wall scrolls. Of course, most people are sane, too. :D

WanderingWastrel (4 years ago) #2611699I ordered it from Mandarake. It shows up in their listings for used Love Live! items occasionally, but usually they only show the picture of the white poster box that it comes in, not the poster itself. So if you look for it there, be sure to look at the items closely.
