    Most decent restorers can tackle pretty much anything so your WEG posters wouldn't be an issue, but what it comes down to is how much work you want done on something.

    Some like them to look pristine, while others like to retain some of the posters history.

    Personally, unless the thing is falling apart, I would leave it pretty much as is and enjoy it. 

    What you want done to a poster will dictate what it will cost you.  Just a clean and back will be far less than something which requires recreation and touch up work all over the place.

    My advise would be to try a few out and see which one sits best with you.

    There is apparently a restorer in Melbourne, but the prices quoted were eye watering for some things.  I've never used them so can't speak to quality of work, but when I have a bit more time on my hands, I might take a lesser poster that require no to minimal work and see how they go.  Generally speak you will need to go overseas for any resto work you would like done.

    Good luck should you choose to venture down this path.

    One sheets you can still get, three sheets they don't make anymore...would be banners these days.  Daybills, hmm. ..need to think.

    One of my all time favourite Hitchcock's...along with Rope, it gets a regular viewing in this house!

    Does the in-house artist enjoy doing the restoration?

    Howdy,


    Generally speaking video posters are not that desirable to collectors and thus not worth as much as their theatrical release counterparts.

    Having said that, there are always exceptions...on rare occasions they can do quite well for cult films.


    I would say storing them flat is the best way but takes up a huge amount of room, so rolled in tubes lying flat should be fine.  No rubber bands or anything to hold them together...

    As we don't know what titles you have available, it is hard to say what to do with them in terms of selling.  I would suspect the vast majority will be worth next to nothing.

    You could pick out key titles over the decades and try your luck selling individually, but I would start by putting a list together.

    Best of luck and welcome to the forum.

    Also check emovieposter.com but you have to join (free) to view the auction history details much like Heritage.

    Don't go off the value of the theatrical releases though...they are treated very differently by collectors, but it sounds like you have found and will find many more great titles, so in the end you should do ok for something you got for nothing :)

    Post some pictures here of your favourites...we love pictures!


This Vintage Movie Poster Forum is powered by some old cinema posters, the flame retardant properties of a Top Gun Daybill, and a
British Quad which has been folded just the right amount of times and shoved under one of the corners to stop the place from wobbling.
