Recently, I have purchased a “V For Vendetta” poster from an AliExpress store, that specializes in selling retro-style movie posters. In this review I will show the way they are shipped, and the quality of the material of the poster itself.
My main concern ordering a poster from China was about the damage. I work in E-commerce, and the electronic parts that we sell often get damaged, even if shipped within the same city. I was worried, that a paper poster would be unrecognizable by the time it travels 8,500 km (~5,200 miles). However, the packaging was adequate, and, even though the poster did have to spend a night under the pile of books (because it spent a few weeks in a roll), and it looks just as good as new.
The material is different from the regular printer paper; it is just like the old-school poster paper, and it has this nostalgic feel to it. The size is 30 x 42 cm, or approximately 12 x 16 inches.
There is a ton of different posters in that store (various sizes), the vast majority of which are within ~$2 USD.
