the chip guy - I just got my 06' Gp back from Charlie today and it looks beautiful!!!!



It's hard to describe what a restored poster looks like in person. I can't see the fold lines anymore unless i'm 12 inches from the poster and have a the right angle of light. The paper looks more textured now (not as smooth) but that's probably because of how it bonded to the linen? You only notice this when your inches from the poster tho.

I had Charlie leave extra linen on the poster so it fits into a 24x36 frame perfectly and i'm glad I did that, it makes framing it so much easier.

@ Hunto idk if he can remove a sig yet? Charlie is still new at this... give him a year or two and i'm sure he will figure out how to or he will just be good enough to paint over one by then.

@armbarheelhook, I've seen older faded posters restored to look new bright and crisp. But again I don't know if charlie can do that to our newer posters just yet. That would be a good question for him. 

Finally found time Chip!

Heya,

It looks great:)

After looking at your frame I also got inspired and bought a poster for my room. I am just waiting for the frame I ordered from http://www.arttoframe.com/24x36_picture_frames/1.

As soon as I am done will also post the picture of my poster.
