Movie Poster Works is in transition...
For the foreseeable future we have decide to close the sales portion of the site and will focus primarily on conservation and restoration. We will still be selling our restored posters from time to time through prominent auctions and retailers.
If you have any questions about conservation and restoration please feel free to contact us. If you would like us to conduct research in these area please let us know as this is one of our passions.
We love movie posters.
We started learning how to conserve and restore them.
We have been collectors for almost 20 years. While collecting, we routinely came across wonderful posters that needed much love and care. These posters had seen better days and were in need of professional restoration. After a bad experience with a professional restoration expert, we decided to use all our abilities and knowledge to learn the art and science of the Conservation, Support and Restoration of paper.
We started small by restoring less expensive titles until comfortable with the process and procedures. We further challenged ourselves with more difficult restorations and more valuable titles and have true confidence in our skills. During this journey we have developed a passion for restoration just a great as our love for movie posters and memorabilia.
To continue our journey and further challenge ourselves, we have decided to finance our conservation, support and restoration passion by selling the posters that we restore.
At Movie Poster Works, we strive to accomplish the following:
- Bring damaged and neglected posters back to life through our Conservation, Support and Restoration Initiative,
- Educate you on building and caring for a collection, and
- Build a relationship with you and film lovers across the world.
Conservation, Support and Restoration (CSR) Initiative
We seek to demonstrate that every movie poster and accessory, even those that have been damaged by neglect and the ravages of time, has inherent historical value and can be just as powerful today, as they were seen by movie goers on opening night. Through our passion for conservation and restoration, we will offer to collectors many posters that have been forgotten, beaten and/or abused that have been made new again for generations to experience and enjoy.
Educating New Collectors
As collectors ourselves, we seek to continue to educate the next generation about film accessories, their origins and history, as well as how to properly build and care for a collection. If you are new to the hobby of collecting film memorabilia give us a call or e-mail us any questions you may have. We will, over time, build a repository of information on our site.
