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.

@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.
