  • You can find how we grade our cinema posters / memorabilia at the bottom of this page

Liberty Photo Art's grading system for condition of cinema posters below

 

 

  • PLEASE NOTE: This is not an exact science so we don't want to make it unnecessarily complicated but there are certain variables to consider such as the age of the poster for example.

 

  • We realise the importance of having a grading system for our cinema posters / memorabilia even if it doesn't follow in line with many of the other larger film / memorabilia companies but we will always endeavour to make sure that for each poster we give the best possible information for the potential purchaser.

 

  • In addition to a worded explanation of the condition of each cinema poster/memorabilia which we inspect carefully, we also take our own (not stock images) relevant high resolution photographs including a main image which has all of the edges in view ("not" cropped), we also add close-up images of anything we think is relevant for the potential purchaser such as edge/corner wear, creasing, scuffs, very/small edge nick/s, foxing/spots/stains, any small holes/breaches or separation in the middle/central folds, writing/marks on the front/back of the poster etc. (We have also added the company name across the main image of each poster/memorabilia to protect the purchaser)

 

  • It is very noticeable in the selling of cinema posters / memorabilia nowadays that the term MINT or NEAR MINT is a very common term but also overused particularly with "modern" posters (with older or vintage posters particularly early 80s and pre-1980s we believe there should be a little more latitude given).

In the handling of 2nd hand or USED posters / memorabilia we find it very difficult to see how you can describe virtually any poster / memorabilia above very good condition even if it has come directly from a cinema or the poster has been unused by the cinema because the poster will eventually have to be handled at some point before it is purchased, so for that reason we will not describe any of our posters / memorabilia above very good condition because on nearly every poster/item/memorabilia there will some mark, scuff, crease etc and that also makes it very difficult to differentiate between one individual purchasers expectations to the next.

We may describe the occasional poster/item/memorabilia as "EXCELLENT" when we take everything into consideration such as the age of the poster, the size of the poster and whether the poster has obviously been treated or preserved extremely well.

 

  • (Please also note) All of Liberty Photo Art's UK Quadruple Crown (UK Quads 30x40 inches), UK Double Crown (20x30 inches), US One Sheets (27x41 inches), UK One Sheets, Australian Daybills and Belgium film posters (Folded and Rolled) are all stored/kept flat.

 

 

PLEASE NOTE: The grading system below is only a guide

 

 

  • Very good: A poster with very little edge corner wear, creasing, scuffs and some very mild handling error associated mark/s to or upon the paper surface. (For posters from the 1980s and pre 80s we will give a little more latitude due to the age and/or whether they are folded etc.)

 

  • Good to Very good: A poster with generally only mild edge/corner wear, creasing, scuffs, maybe the odd really minor edge nick(s) up to a "cm" into the poster, mild foxing on older posters, possibly the odd really small fold line hole/breach in the middle/central folds, pinholes to corners on older posters and some mild handling error associated mark/s to or upon the paper surface. (For posters from the 1980s and pre 80s we will give a little more latitude due to the age and/or whether they are folded etc.)

 

  • Good: A poster which may have some edge/corner wear, creasing, scuffs, edge nick(s)/tear(s) approx up to an "inch" into the poster, foxing on older posters, fold line holes/breaches in the middle/central folds, pinholes to corners, writing to the back of the poster which may show through, mild residue from tape removal or other on older posters and handling associated mark/s to or upon the paper surface. (For posters from the 1980s and pre 80s we will give a little more latitude due to the age and/or whether they are folded etc.)

 

  • Reasonable to Good: A poster which will have edge/corner wear, creasing, scuffs, multiple edge nick(s)/tear(s) approx up to a couple of inches into the poster, foxing, pinoles, fold line holes/breaches in the middle/central folds and from the edges, some trimming of the poster, residue left behind from tape removal or other, minor paper loss to corners or mild print loss on or within the design and handling associated mark/s to or upon the paper surface (For posters from the 1980s and pre 80s we will give a little more latitude due to the age and/or whether they are folded etc.)

 

  • Reasonable: A poster which will have edge/corner wear, creasing, scuffs, multiple edge nick(s)/tear(s) approx up to a couple of inches into the poster, multiple pinholes, foxing, areas of moisture damage, paper loss to corners, print loss within the design, residue left on the poster from tape removal and handling error associated mark/s to or upon the paper surface (For posters from the 1980s and pre 80s we will give a little more latitude due to the age and/or whether they are folded etc.)

 

  • Poor to Reasonable & Poor: These posters will only be sold on our website in lots and they will obviously have multiple issues and we would only recommend for person/s wanting something different for collage designs, a specific design theme within the home or pub for example and prop use etc.
