The music was phenomenal, the actors were astounding, and the night was one that you would like to remember forever. If you are a lover of Broadway and the theatre, you know that each live performance is unique. One of the best ways to preserve the moment so that you can look back at it fondly and recapture the feeling is to frame the Playbill or show tickets.

How to Frame Playbills and Show Tickets

At Rosenbaum Framing, our fine art framers are also lovers of the arts and we understand your desire to preserve your memories of these fantastic shows.

It is best to frame a Playbill or show tickets as soon as possible after the performance. If you wait too long, you are much more likely to damage them. The corners could become bent or torn, and they may get wet. Avoid damaging them by taking the Playbill or tickets you want framed to your local frame shop as soon as possible or keeping them in a safe place until you can.

There are many ways to frame show tickets and Playbills, but it is important to choose your frame wisely. Not all frames are created equally. A ready-made frame from a big box store may appear to get the job done, but with the absence of proper spacers and uv-blocking glass, your Playbill or theatre tickets could end up damaged. They could stick to the glass or get bleached by the sun. Getting a custom frame made by experts will reduce the risk of this happening so that your Playbill and tickets are perfectly preserved to last for years to come.

Frame your Playbill and tickets in one frame. Framing them together will create a nice display that is more unique than the Playbill alone. The tickets act as proof that you were there and got to witness the performance firsthand.
