My room looks boring now, and is full of cardboard boxes of stuff I moved in with. One thing I don't want to do is stick posters on the wall with thumbtacks because that looks tacky, but I don't have the money for reproduction paintings. What are ideas for a guy's room to make it look classy and artistic, but still look like a guy's room?

Well it kind of depends on what your preferences are. Do you like wooden textures and darker colors or sleek metal materials and colors? Progressive art or eclectic designs?
You can find tons of ideas for decorating and incorporate your favorite colors and designs you know?
If your posters are fairly inexpensive and you have them just because you like them, what I did with my old posters is use them as wallpaper. Id take a picture but I took my old posters and just covered an entire wall with them (I lined my closet). Some were overlapped and stuff but you know. Like comic book panelling type stuff. It was a bit more than just hanging them up one by one, and gave it a collage type look.
If your poster is fairly expensive or carries sentimental value, you could get two clear plexiglass frames, sandwich the poster in the middle and hang it up. It keeps the poster safe and looks pretty classy. Modernistic and shit.0

its tough I remember being in the same situation when I moved into a small apartment a few years ago , never really came up with many ideas. there is cheap paintings you can get at used thrift stores for little money , you'd be surprised what some of those places have , a small painting does add a lot to a small wall0
