Displate makes posters out of metal. Weighing 0.9kg and measuring a uniform 45cm x 32cm, the posters can be wall-mounted with a stick-on magnet, so no need to buy frames or drill holes.
If you don’t fancy sticking things to your walls (I’m unsure how easy it’d be removing the magnets) the plates are sturdy enough to sit on a shelf, like the ones I chose (below) in return for a possible blog post. I don’t mention all the things I’m sent, but it’s a high quality print finish and worth a share.

There’s a chemical-like smell right after taking the shrink-wrap off each plate, and I wondered how environmentally-friendly the Poland-based production is. On the bright side, Displate has partnered with Trees for the Future, with 10 trees planted for each poster sold. Seemingly, more than 1.2 million trees have been planted as a result of the partnership.
Artists from around the world have uploaded more than 40,000 images to the Displate site. In return, after setting a price for their art from a predetermined range, artists get 25% from every sale, so if you have some high-res files already designed you might want to become a Displate artist.
