WELCOME OUR NEW DEALER
PosterWorld - Paul Hein's first encounter with
movie posters as collectibles came in 1975 through a friend. He caught
the collecting bug and became a collector/dealer in Atlanta, where Posterworld
was born. Paul has since moved to New Jersey and has been operating
Posterworld strictly as a mail order business offering all sizes of
movie paper up to and including three sheets, primarily for films released
during the period 1940-1975. Horror and Sci-Fi titles from the 1950's
and 1960's are Posterworld specialties. Paul is adding his inventory
to the Movie Poster Data Base. To learn more about Paul and his inventory,

NOTE: These figures only represent visitors to the reference

include all visitors -- only the ones our stats package can track.
IMAGES - The Movie Poster Data Base now
has over 20,000 images on line. This represents about
10% of the images we have, so we still have a long way to go.
POSTERS FOR SALE - Our great dealers

This number increases daily and represents posters for ever genre and
from most countries. Before you buy that poster, be sure to check to
see if one of our dealers has it for sale.
COMING May 1st 2004 -
In light of the current world events, over the past
year, we noticed a significant number of visitors coming to our
site through our sister site, LearnAboutWW2Posters.com. According
to our stats program, it is regularly ranked in the top 20 areas
visited. It is apparent that many movie poster collectors also collect
other types of posters, and military collectors are looking at war
In addition, we have several of our dealers that are
carrying a variety of war movie posters and other war posters.
Due to numbers we could no longer ignore, and the
benefits of cross product marketing, we have decided to divide this
section off into its own website: LearnAboutMilitaryPosters.com.
This site will be dedicated to the posters issued
during war time events: World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam
War, Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom and others. In addition, we will
be putting up a special section on movie posters that highlight
each war period.
We will officially kick off the site May 1, 2004.
There are several advertising spots available for any dealers who
wish to sponsor this site. Dealers that carry war-related posters
can contact us about participating in our site. For more information,
visit the website or contact us via email.
