A tear occurs when a part of the poster is separated from the remainder of the poster.


Most tears occur in the area of the fold lines. When posters have been folded and unfolded a number of times, pressure is placed on the fold lines and this can sometimes lead to separations or tears. Tears can also be the result of mishandling or poor storage.


The location and size of the tears will determine what impact it will have on the overall value of the poster. If the tears are on the border of the poster, they will not impact the value. If the tear affects the artwork of the poster, the value of the poster will be decreased.


Most tears, particularly those alone the fold lines, can be repaired by re-adhering the tear with the use of non-acid archival tape on the back side of the poster. For larger or more problematic tears, seek a good restorer.
