We sell regularly to collectors in Sweden and the rest of the world. We have friends in the USA, Japan, Australia, Taiwan, Canada, England, Denmark, Germany, Finland, Norway and many more countries.
We sell original posters with a collectors value. The posters were used outside the movie theater when the film was running, maybe 75 years ago. They have the highest quality in print, paper and design, to make a good impression and to sell the film. We don't sell newly printed posters, glichee prints, or video and DVD posters. It is very easy to see the difference between an original movie poster and a new print. The prints have glossy thick paper, the letters and colors are fuzzy. The size of an old original Swedish poster is always exactly 70x100cm or 30x70cm, and printed on soft thin quality paper.
We have collected Swedish posters for more than 20 years, and have a large knowledge base on original posters. We are consulted as experts from large ebay sellers, auction houses, and poster collectors. The largest auction house in London sold Swedish Bond posters printed in 1967 as "original print 1964" for years before we told them how tell the difference between the 1964 and 1967 prints.
Posters are fun to collect for many reasons. They are typical of their age, artistic, and rare. And they make a great addition to your wall! The prices are surprisingly low, considering maybe only 1-5 copies are known of some of the older poster titles. Swedish posters come in two different sizes: 70x100cm (approx the same size as a US one sheet 27" x 39") and "inserts" 30x70cm (approx 12" x 27"). More about posters and our lists.
Some collectors want everything from a certain film, a film star, Science Fiction era of the 1950's, or all posters with a boxing image. Others have memories from a film they saw a long time ago and want the poster for nostalgic reasons. A lot of people buy a James Bond posters just to hang on a wall instead of a painting. An investor might buy posters in perfect condition from the 1930's.
