Snap Frames and Tamper Resistant Frames

What is a snap frame?

Snap frames, also known as click frames, are a hugely popular type of poster frame. They have spring lock mechanisms that allow you to unclip the edges of the frame. This means you can replace your poster without taking the frame off the wall.

These snap shut poster holders have become the standard way of displaying commercial posters in a wide range of businesses. Changing posters has never been so quick and easy.

Where can these poster snap frames be used?

Our poster holders can be used both indoors and outdoors to improve the shopping experience. They're supplied with anti-glare protective covers to keep off moisture and protect against UV rays. Your displays can be fully protected against crinkling if you print your posters on waterproof paper.

How do I install my snap frame signs?

Most of our sign holders are supplied complete with fittings for wall mounting. If you don't want to screw your sign directly to the wall, we offer a huge range of alternate fixings. These include adhesive tapes and pads, which make installation possible in seconds.

What is a tamper resistant snap frame?

Tamper resistant frames feature very strong spring clip mechanisms which make them much harder to snap open with your fingers alone. This can help protect your posters from theft or defacement. We sell a special lever tool to open the frames.

We make two different styles of tamper resistant snap poster frame: lockable and tamper-resistant. The tamper-resistant ones use a stronger spring and can only be opened easily with the special opening lever tool. The lockable ones feature a locking mechanism which requires the use of a special key or Allen key.

Does a poster cover make these signs waterproof?

There are actually few truly waterproof poster frames on the market. Ours come with clear protective covers supplied with protect against rain. However, in damp environments the posters can still crinkle if condensation forms under the cover sheet.

This is easily prevented by printing your posters on special waterproof paper. We print onto this special paper as standard, for use with our snap frames.
