The advantages of using our poster frames

As a leading Australian supplier of high-quality, affordable frames and poster frames, (including lockable and outdoor frames), we think the advantages are numerous! Not only are our poster holders super easy to use and hang – they simply ‘snap’ open and closed – they are also cheap to buy and come in a range of different sizes to suit your needs, from A5 to A0. We also have a full range of lightweight clip frames.

One of the biggest advantages of using a snap or clip holder is how easy it is to change your posters around whenever you want. With a hanging snap frame, there’s no need for any tools. You don’t even have to take the frame down from the wall if you don’t want to. All you need to do is ‘unsnap’ the frame, replace the print, and lock the frame into place again.

Whether you’re using snap poster frames for personal or professional displays, the #1 benefit is convenience. Our premium grade aluminium picture frames will complement whatever poster you choose to hang – or if you prefer a coloured snap frame, we stock those too. Order today from snapframesstore.com.au, and your order will be despatched the same day.

Common uses for snap poster frames

A popular type of poster frame, snap poster frames are front-loading, which means that unlike clip frames, your print can be changed without needing to take the entire holder off the wall. This renders them particularly useful for advertising or POS displays, such as those commonly found in schools, offices, shopping centres, and even toilets. They are the ultimate ‘quick change’ framing option.

But they aren’t just for commercial use – our stylish aluminium poster frames are also perfect for framing your favourite film, music or personality posters, saving them from becoming dog-eared after years of being up on the wall. Keep your posters in prime condition by framing them from new, whether it’s a tribute to Trainspotting or a journey Back To The Future.

Why aluminium?

Aluminium frames are a favourite for displaying and hanging movie posters. Why? For one, the result is clean and minimal, offering a smart display for your print without detracting attention. If you look for a modern aesthetic in your home or workplace, then aluminium snap frames are ideal, with their clean-cut edges and subtle metallic finish.

Aluminium looks particularly beautiful when paired with black and white poster prints, sepia photography or modern art. But don’t let that limit you – the possibilities are endless! The great thing about our aluminium snap & clip poster frames is that they don’t really clash with anything, so the sky’s the limit.

A low-density metal, aluminium is super strong, but lightweight. So your holder is unlikely to come toppling down from the wall anytime soon. As well as being corrosion resistant, aluminium is also highly recyclable, making it a sustainable choice of material for your home or office.

How to arrange frames of different sizes together on a wall

If you have several framed posters that you wish to hang together on a wall, attempting to arrange them in a neat and visually pleasing way can be challenging. Try these tips and tricks for hanging multiple frames together:

  • Measure the dimensions of the wall and allow this to dictate the shape of your arrangement
  • If the pictures and frames are similar, arrange them in a symmetrical way. But if they’re all very different from one another, go for an asymmetric arrangement. This will give a more casual look
  • Lay out your arrangement on the floor beforehand, and take a photo. This way, you can ensure you’re happy with it before you start hammering in picture hangers
  • Leave some breathing room between images, or it’ll start to look crowded
  • If possible, do a trial run using paper stuck to the wall. You can them remove and replace each piece as you go
  • Picture rods, wires and collages are all useful ways of hanging multiple posters or prints in a satisfying way

Waterproof poster frames for the outdoors

You may wish to hang your snap poster frame or clip frame outdoors, in which case, go ahead! Perfect for a range of outdoor uses and applications, our aluminium frames are built to withstand a little wind and rain. You may also use them in ‘wetter’ areas of the home, such as the bathroom or kitchen.

Waterproof frames are a good choice if you want to display print advertising outside near the entrance to your business. Bear in mind that it will still need to be attached to a smooth surface.

While they are weather-resistant, these frames are not 100% waterproof, and therefore you may wish to include an extra PVC insert for added protection. Alternatively, print straight onto a waterproof material and your poster will remain in peak condition for the duration of its life. Consider adding a UV anti-glare PVC cover during sunnier months to protect your poster from fading in the sunlight.

Decoding dimensions – what size poster frame will you need?

The dimensions for our range of snap poster frames and clip frames are as follows:

  • A0: 841 x 1189 mm
  • A1: 594 x 841 mm
  • A2: 420 x 594 mm
  • A3: 297 x 420 mm
  • A4: 210 x 297 mm
  • A5: 148 x 210 mm

To work out poster sizes in centimetres, convert mm values to cm by dividing by 10.

Poster Frame FAQs

What’s the difference between a snap and a clip frame?

A snap frame is often used in corporate setting. A snap frame needs to be securely attached to a wall, and as it is front loading, you only need to unfasten the front to change the poster. Clip frames, on the other hand, are secured with clips, and you’ll need to take the entire frame down from the wall to change it.

How do snap frames work?

Snap frames are very easy to use. Simply open up the four sides of the frame (they snap open easily by hand) to uncover the holes used for screwing the frame to the wall. Snap frames are spring loaded, which means they hinge open with a snap action, allowing easy access to your poster, which is protected by a plastic cover. To close, you simply snap the frame shut. Wall fittings are supplied as standard with every poster frame.

 

How to open snap frames

Opening a snap poster frame is very simple and can be done by hand, without removing the frame from the wall. You simply ‘unsnap’ each of the four edges, one by one, which then allows you to remove the poster inside and replace it with another. You then snap the edges shut again to secure.

 

How to hang snap poster frames

Aluminium snap poster frames are very light, which gives you a greater range of mounting options compared to a heavier picture frame.

You will need:

  • 4 wall anchors
  • 4 screws
  • A level
  • A pencil
  • A hand drill with ¼-inch drill bit
  • Number 2 Phillips head screwdriver

First, snap open the sides of the frame. Then use the level to line up the frame, and once level, use a pencil to mark up the four holes for the screws. Take the hand drill and drill into the pencil marks, then place the wall anchors into the newly drilled holes. You can then align the snap poster frame with the wall anchors, and use the screwdriver to fasten in the screws. Once finished, you can added your poster or print, and snap the frame shut.

Alternatively, you can also opt to use adhesive hooks or Command strips if you need to hang the frame without using nails or damaging the wall.

Do poster frames have glass?

While some poster frames use glass, it is more common to find snap and/or clip poster frames made with a plastic protective cover, such as PVC. All of our frames use a plastic cover, which makes them more safe, convenient, and lightweight.

Different shapes of Snap Poster Holders

1.) Square Mitred corners : The aluminium holder profile or edge as it is called, is machined at a 45-degree angle so that the corner joints meet perfectly when the edges are closed. The Mitred, square corners look is the more contemporary in the brushed aluminium or a satin anodised finish . They are easily recognisable from the clean, seamless appearance and high profile presentation of the poster when enclosed.

2.) Rounded corners are an alternative to the square corner style . The round corner version are characterised with chrome inserts in the corners. This style of picture holder is best used with colourful posters or art pieces with lots of detail. Nonetheless, some buyers tend to think that they appear less contemporary and modern than their square mitred corner counterparts. They are well suited however when hanging your notices within reach of small children.

Colours available in the Clip edge Poster Holder range

The primary colour available and the most widely sold is the silver, brushed anodised aluminium clip edge holder. It is stylish and modern looking and highlights the poster very well. They will suit most corporate environments. There are a few other standard colours available such as black, red and white. They are powder coated with these different colours and are usually bought to suit a specific corporate branding or theme of a company.

They can be coloured in a wide variety of colours although it would be a custom colour make and a minimum quantity and longer lead times are involved. The coloured clip edge wall holders do look good though.

Hanging and attaching your poster Holders

The beauty with using this style of poster holder is that they can be hung or attached on virtually any kind of wall surface. They are easily mounted on both plastered, metal or wooden surfaces. They can be hung either vertically or horizontally, i.e in either portrait or landscape orientation. It is a feature that makes them comparatively more versatile than other types of notice holders. It could also mean that a business owner who constantly replaces their posters only has to buy a couple of them to satisfy all their advertising requirements.
