Iím the kind of person who has a casual poster collection. I say casual because I know there are people out there who have huge collections that would bring big bucks on eBay. Thatís not me. I just buy a poster every now and again because I like it or it means something to me. Funnily enough, when I get a new poster, it usually claims the most important spot for display Ė my door.

Hanging Posters

If my mother had her way, Iíd have all of my posters in nice and tidy poster frames. They would probably all match the rest of my room as well, but thatís not the way it works in real life (at least not in my real life.) Instead of being neat and tidy, my posters seem to make two stops. The first stop, if itís a meaningful poster, is on my door. This way, the world can see my poster when the door is closed and by looking at the poster and thinking deep thoughts, visitors can figure out exactly what is going on in my little world right now. The second stop is a necessary one. As the poster on the door gets updated, the old poster gets moved somewhere inside my room.

The Deeper Meaning of Posters

Some people fail to see why posters are so much fun. But kids know the value of a good poster. Your posters can contain your favorite cartoon characters, be actors from a new movie, be an inspirational phrase or picture or be a joke or funny picture. Iíve had all kinds of posters on my door, and each has been there for a reason.

Funny Posters Ė The first poster is the funny poster. These might have a funny picture or something poking fun at something else. There are posters that are amusing and then there are posters that are offensive. I like to think mine are just funny, but there was one that my mother asked me to remove before my grandmother came to town. Apparently she would have been greatly offended by my version of humor. I took the poster down (with great protest), but I promise it wasnít that bad. My mother just overreacted.

Cute Posters Ė Sometimes Iím in a cute and cuddly mood. These posters might be kittens, smiling babies sitting in flowers, cartoon characters or fun little rules or sayings. The cute posters generally make me feel relaxed and young again, and Iíve yet to get complaints about my puppies in a basket or princess collection.

Photographs Ė When Iím in a more serious mood, I might find an inspirational or impressive photograph made into a poster. I really like the ones of old photographs that have made impacts on history such as the sailor kissing the woman on the street at the end of World War II. When it comes to my photograph posters, I greatly prefer black and white or sepia tones. It just makes them more authentic.

Movies Ė And finally, the move poster. I have a nice collection of movie posters Iíve gathered over the years. When I see one for a movie I actually enjoyed (or plan to enjoy), I grab one of the posters. They are usually pretty inexpensive, and are fun to look at. Iíve even bought old movie posters online, just so I could have a certain movie on my wall (The Princess Bride comes to mind.) In fact, just last week I changed my door poster from a photograph to a movie poster I happened to see at a large retail chain and had to have. You guessed it Ė Edward Cullen is now gracing my door (and itís always nice to see him!)

Oh my word, I had so many when I was little. I gave them all away though. x.x They were all of N'Sync and Backstreet Boys... man, was I a fanatic of them when I was five.

Now I have a single cloth poster/flag/throw of the band Nightwish over my bed; it's a hand coming out of an ocean holding the planet Earth. There's a little quote under it that says "Everywhere... is just a journey away." ^^

I don't have any...but I did once find a really cute gift bag that matched my room. It's hanging up now...lol

My big thing is little strings of lights. I don't usually plug them in or anything, but I do have some very cute ones. My favorites are shaped like cows.

I think i speak for alot of people cause when i was growing up my room waslike poster mania and asi go older i appreciated more bare walls and just some posters which i neatly put into those poster frames- the ones i have in poster frames are my Xena ones but unfortunatly i have those storred away too atthe moment but eventually i'll put em up and the best hig about posters and this is for any teenager please do put those posters into a frame you'll never know later on down the road in life when those posters are gonna be worth a pretty penny, dont use tape or pin them up the better no marks on te posters the more the money. you still can always enjoy the poster even behind a plastic or glass frame. enjoy

I used to love poster-plastered walls. But now that I'm older and in my own home I prefer framed pictures of family members and art. Ooo which reminds me: I used to love cutting family members and friends out of their pictures and making a collage (spell check I know...) on my wall. My mother hated it, but I thought it was very personal art ^_^.

Yes Lush. I've had crushes on David too, but SSHHUUSSHH! That's a secret. We are off topic! Yes, Chris lacked personality. And he scared me. I went to the Doctor Who exebition in Cardif last May. I was only in Cardiff to see and Avril Lavigne concert. Lol.

Posters. I have Doctor Who ones. Crap, I already said that.

Ergh, I got a slight crush on David. He has the most amazing hair, no?

Chris Eccleston was ok, but he lacked the personality I think and--um....I'm going off-topic aren't I?

I only have a couple of posters in my room, as I am not very fond of them. I have a couple of horses, and one of puppies. Though I wouldn't mind an Edward Cullen poster.. ^.-

I do have a Doctor Who poster. It's folded up "carefully" because it's signed by David Tennant. It has a dalek on it. It used to give me nightmares.

*High five's TW* I love Doctor Who! I actually saw it once on TV fell in love with it and now obsess about it online and asked for several Doctor Who items come this christmas. Which actor do you prefer as the doctor? *Coughs*

Unfortunately I can't hang posters because we're renovating the entire house so I only have taped up a couple of mini-sized pictures of a few characters from my fave shows.

I do love decorating my room..
