I plan to frame my Mi Yodeya mini-poster when I get it and hang it in my house because:

  • It's beautiful.

  • I value my association with this community.

  • It will serve as an ongoing promotion of the community.

Can you recommend a frame to use with this poster that will present it most attractively and durably at a minimum of cost?

Clearly this will be easier to answer once we have the actual artifacts in our hands, but maybe someone will have an idea already.

Is this on topic? – Double AA Oct 4 '12 at 15:23
@DoubleAA, it's site promotion – Isaac Moses Oct 4 '12 at 16:04
... The more people who put this on their walls, the more prominently - the more MY will come up in conversations, introducing new people to the site and community. – Isaac Moses Oct 4 '12 at 16:12
Is this on-topic on the main site, since it's about Jewish life? (It's definitely more on-topic here,so I'm not proposing to move it. I'm just musing.) – msh210 Oct 4 '12 at 18:57
@msh210, would "How should I frame this particular Chabad poster?" (or gadol picture, or what have you) be on-topic on Mi Yodeya? I'm thinking not; I'd close as "Too Localized," I think. The same would apply to this. – Isaac Moses Oct 4 '12 at 19:10
@IsaacMoses, makes sense. – msh210 Oct 4 '12 at 19:17

I brought this up to Jin in Chat. He recommended:

since the poster is earthy tones, I think a maroon/dark brown frame will look nice with the poster

He then Googled a bit and came up with a nice possibility on Etsy.

Etsy's nice, since vendors on it offer distinctive crafts, are frequently open to customization requests, and frequently charge very reasonable prices. (Note: Most sellers on Etsy are US-based and are set up best for shipping to the US.)

I searched Etsy for 6x6 frame and discovered and ultimately ordered this one, which looks like it will attractively and simply set off the poster and costs only $12.99 shipped.

Here it is:

It goes very well, I think, except that it overlaps the scrollwork on the border of the poster a bit.
