The best place I’ve found to get posters online, has to be:
Click here to buy posters!
It’s not just a huge collection of posters (bigest on the web, last time I checked), but it also has some very helpful tools to help pick out the best poster, artwork, tapestry, or photograph for your room. You can use their online tools to make sure you poster will look good on your color wall, with the appropriate frame and matting if required. Their website actually allows you to mix and match all those options, and see what it looks like online before placing your order.

There is plenty of overpriced artwork hanging on some peoples walls, but I’m not one of those people. Posters, provide a great affordable, alternative to original or limited edition prints. Not everyone can afford to have an original Vincent van Gogh in their house, but most can afford some nice framed posters of his original work. I like to change the art on my walls regularly. It gets boring looking at the same old stuff for too long. Moving the frames around from room to room, can help keep the price down, and still make your el-cheapo posters look like original works of art. Not to mention, it’s a whole lot cheaper just buying new posters, instead of original or limited edition prints.
Is there a movie or pop star that belongs up on your wall?
Why is it that kids are always decorating their walls with rock stars, sports stars, and movie stars? And secondly, why is it that adults never seem to. Well, at least most adults don’t. I do have a poster of Captain Jack from Pirates Of The Caribbean on my office door. I do tend to enjoy the movies of Mr. Depp, and Pirates of the Caribbean is one of my favorites, but I think I just put the poster up because I thought it was cool. Celebrities have always held a fascination amongst the average population. Something about making your own life seem more interesting buy associating with someone whose life already seems fascinating. At least in the headlines.
Movie posters use to be for promotional purposes only, but not anymore.
I really like posters from the movie Pulp Fiction here. Not because it’s one of the latest releases in the theaters, but simply because it isn’t. For some reason this poster has continued to be one of the big sellers, even though it’s been at least ten years since Travolta made of of the biggest Hollywood comebacks in history, when Tarantino cast him in the role. It’s attained a certain amount of cult status, which means, the kids still think it’s cool and that their parents have forgotten about it. It is cool, and Travolta’s character was cool in the movie, even he professionally cashed in his cool bank account with a flop called Battlefield Earth.
