POSTERS ON BOARD celebrated 30 Years in Business & the Richfield Chamber of Commerce held a Ribbon Cutting at our store on October 23, 2014.
We all mingled with the original founders Bob Strom & Rick Krueger, as well as author & illustrator Nancy Carlson & the new owners, Becky & Steve Strom, as we celebrated this significant milestone!
POSTERS ON BOARD was started in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis in 1984 & soon outgrew its digs there & moved to Wood Lake Plaza in Richfield in 1986.
To accommodate the largest inventory of Posters & Art Prints in the Midwest, POB doubled its retail space while expanding into an adjacent storefront.
To improve customer service, POB moved to its current location in 1996 where we have vast retail space for browsing, 2 service counters & improved production facilities for Custom Framing & our specialty - Wood Mounting.
The process of mounting graphic items to a wooden board was discovered to be popular in Europe. It was seen to be a cost-effective alternative to picture framing & has a clean, contemporary look that could be popular in the U.S.
When 2 school teachers, Rick Krueger, from South Bend, Indiana & Bob Strom, from Duluth, Minnesota, were teaching at Department of Defense Schools in Germany, they decided that they would create a business in the Midwest that would provide Wood Mounting services. The name 'POSTERS ON BOARD' was the obvious choice because it is our speciality!
