What is Poster Linen Backing?

linen backing is the process where a movie poster is mounted to linen or cotton. It helps to preserve the movie poster, making it more durable for handling and is used to repair damaged movie posters to their original condition.

 

Why Linen backing? It strengthens, preserves and enhances the look of your poster and is easier to frame. The optional slight white extra linen border also looks great when displayed. Of course, being able to roll the poster easily is also a bonus if you intend shipping it or storing it (if space is at a premium, storing the poster rolled is a good option.

Who needs linen backing? Consider it for your most valuable or treasured posters but carefully consider if it’s necessary for any poster that is already in really good condition. if your poster can easily be framed and look great anyway, you may feel linen backing isn’t required.


Is linen backing cost effective? It is if your poster is valuable and therefore worth preserving. An outlay of around £100 is a good investment if your poster looks fantastic and can be carefully stored and displayed.

A vast majority of pre-1980's movie posters were issued folded by the studios. Linen-backing achieves the effect of flattening the folds as well as making the poster more visually alluring, whilst conserving and preserving the piece.

By linen backing these posters, the folds and minor defects become virtually undetectable at normal viewing distance.
