Not at IKEA. It's "meatball".

Uhh...a yardstick and a razor knife? Mark the distance at several
points, hold the yardstick down between the marked points, and pull
the razor knife along it. Or use a ruler and mark points, draw a
line, use scissors. Chew along the line if you don't know how to use

What? You said the poster is the standard American size of 24" x 36".
Are Canadian inches different from US inches?

Nonsense. I checked one frame with several prices and clicked that
bock. The Trendsetter in 24" x 36" is $29.99. Use a coupon and it's
$17.99 plus tax. To double-check, I went to the Styleline (multiple
prices) box and it's $19.99 before coupon for 24" x 36". Just click
the box to see the prices by size.

So, clear your "Cookies" and you won't be bombarded.*
Actually, I could tell you how to search and not get cookies, but you
are so fucking obnoxious when anyone offers a helpful suggestion that
I'm not going to.
And, there is a store locator click that finds by ZIP code. I don't
know your ZIP code, but IKEA's in Elizabeth in is 07201 and that's 5.2
miles from the Bayonne Michael's. If you can't find the locator link
on the page, that's down to your ineptitude.
Or, get some 9 year-old to show you how to work a computer on the
internet. You really are helpless.
*I would tell you that you can find out how to delete cookies by
Googling "delete cookies", but that means I would have to tell you to
Google Google to find out how to use Google.
