Ok i'm trying to order a frame for my Reading poster and I can't seem to find my measuring tape. Anyone have the dimensions for these posters??

I just measured mine last night for the same reason, it's 25" x 10" exact.

How are you framing yours? I have two of them and it's pretty expensive for custom framing so I went to a craft store last night and they have sides for frames in all sizes so you can make your own. It would cost about 20.00 for a frame of the sz. we need. It's black metal fram I was looking at. Then there would be no glass on the front though, but do you think that's a big deal? Also, we could put cardboard or foamboard on for the backing. Let me know watcha think! :)

Well someone pointed me to a site a long time ago...its http://www.framesbymail.com and you can customize your frame in pretty much any way you want and they'll ship it to your door. I tried it out using one of my larger posters with metal frame, plexi glass front, and a foamcore back and with shipping it only came to like $26! So, i'm gonna give them a try...thanks for the measurements by the way!

I checked out that site and it's awesome! Thanks so much! I think I can get the metal frames cheaper at Michaels, b/c they're only 18.98 + tax for one and then I'm going to order the plexi glass online b/c that's hard to fine without paying alot to have it custom made! You're a life saver! :)

i haven't busted out my VFC posters yet, but what are the dimensions? I've heard two different reports about the individual show posters: one saying that they are 9x24 and another saying 9x25. Which one is it?

Also, what is the dimension of the general VFC poster?

My Reading poster is 10" x 25" exact. I'm still waiting on my Kissimmee poster, but I would think it would be the same.

wonder why some are 9" x 24" and others are 10" x 25". My Reading poster is 10 x 25. I'm still waiting on my Kissimmee poster from a friend. I'm just glad I didn't go ahead and order 2 frames in 10 x 25 and then get the Kissimmee poster and it be smaller. :)
