Ask a Art Major at a local school.

When I asked my local Kinkos to laminate a standard sized poster, it was $10. Didn't want to pay so much for so little. I then drove to Linen n Things and bought a frame for $10. It looks much better in a frame.

Not sure... I suck at estimating and I lost my measuring tape in the most recent move.

Here's a pic... One is pretty big. I don't really keep them on my wall They're just there because I was taking the pics to show of on a gaming forum.

Have no idea how big that is. Put a sheet of paper next to it for some perspective.

Office Max or Office Depot does it too. They don't charge too much for the actual laminating, but don't let them cut it for you or else they will charge you a lot just to cut it. I got a poster laminating once by them and was satisfied. Cost maybe 3 bucks.

What he said, along with Staples and probably Kinkos. Not all of them have the machine to do poster laminating but it'd just take a few calls to check

My old high school had a laminating machine in the library and since I did some volunteer work at the library I pretty much laminated all I wanted. You'd be amazed what you decide to laminate when your sitting around bored to hell.

Also your pic of the poster is just probably a standard sized one with the ones on either side being smaller than standard.(Duh!) But if it costs you more than 5 dollars to laminate your posters just pass and buy a frame since you could always switch posters later on.

Nice Viewtiful Joe Poster. Still haven't been able to play it damn it.

Haha, I used to play with the laminator at my old job all the time. One time I laminated a $1 bill just for fun. I still have it...somewhere. I wonder if it's still legal tender?
