Does the UFC make double sided event posters? i.e. one side has UFC 117 and the other had 118. I've seen some and wondered if they're official or bootlegs. Phone Post

I've seen the UFC distribute bar promotional posters that were double sided. With consecutive events on each side.
 


The UFC does NOT distribute ANY bar posters Lloyd, you are 100% wrong. The UFC does however contract with a company out of Philly called Joehand Promotions that handles that for them. The UFC supplies Joehand with files, Joehand prints (shitty) posters. That is the situation. UFC "authorized" but not printed or distributed.

If you are speaking about actual event posters... 27" x 39" the UFC does distribute to certain individuals (like Prizepig and Kingcable on Ebay) that are supposed to distribute to bars, restaurants, stripjoints, and the like.

So when UFC ditched Spike for Fox, did that leave behind memorabilia to Spike employees or something like that?

I just want to share that I have a few 18x24 double sided posters.

I've been getting them for about 2 years. My Gf brings them home from BDubs before they hang them up.

For those of you that have a PayPal and/or EBAY account (Probably most of you) i was wondering if they send you something at the end of the year to claim on your taxes? Like a 1099 or similar form. I've heard people mention this but i've heard others say they didnt think so. Im in California if that makes a difference.

 Yo Gage, i've only ordered the Lineco Acid-Free Glassine Sheets so far, I put them in between my posters that still have tape or tape residue on them. They only come in 16x20 but i've thought about buying some of that acid free glue they have and gluing them to the back of my poster frames... it's just a thought tho,

You can also get acid free scotch-type tape from Michael's, it's in the scrapbook section I think. That works well.

I would guess any frame shop would sell the acid free matting or foamboard.

I believe you have to do over $20,000 in sales in the year for EBay/PayPal to send you a tax claim form.

This is correct. They will notify you when you reach 10,000 and again when you reach 15,000. The guy i talked to said to avoid this just open a second account when you reach your limit.

Okay I got a question for you framing experts out there.

The only frame I use are the cheap 20 dollar ones from Walmart. Now I've read on here several times that I need to use acid free matting. I figured that meant behind the poster in between the back of the poster and the cardboard backing of the frame. When I went to Aaron brothers today the guy told me the plastic front of my frame will do just as much damage to my poster, an that I need to put in spacers or thick matting to keep the plastic from touching my poster. Is this true common knowledge?

If so how do you guys frame your stuff on a budged? Any advice or tips would be helpful as well any stories of experience.

I know nearly nothing about framing and would like to protect my collection without spending my whole paycheck. Phone Post

Did he happen to explain how it touching the plastic would damage the poster? I think thats a bunch of bs, unless your house is realllllllllly humid or you put your poster right next to the shower you shouldn't have a problem with it touching the plastic.

Go to michaels; they ALWAYS have their frames on a sale; usually 40% off, I bought 3 27x40 nicer frames and a 20x30 frame, and 4 acid free backing sheets for $125...not bad for 4 posters worth of frames/materials; it costs me about $35 per poster for the frame and backing. Phone Post

Has anyone kept it touching the plastic for long periods of time?

He said the plastic has acids as well and that that's why professional framers use lots of matting in front to keep the poster/art from touching the plastic,glass, acrylic. Phone Post
