Method of Mounting Photos for College Dorm

2 years 11 months ago #529301 by JeremyS
Hi,

I'm looking for a method to frame/mount my prints so that they can be placed in a dorm. My Restrictions are: Nothing that renders the print unusable later, as well as I cannot put anything in the walls of the room. 

FYI, I am a guy so looking for suggestions that aren't hang clothes pins on the wall to make it look pretty. 

Thanks for the help,

Jeremy

Foam board with your print glued to it with Elmers glue stick.  Then use putty or 2 sided sticky tape to stick foam board to wall.

 I agree,. The foam board with the putty will work just fine.

How big is the print you want to use? Command strips and putty on foam core are both pretty good bets so long as you're not working with a massive piece.

I thought the OP couldn't use any of that to stick anything on the wall anyway anyhow... maybe I misread. I figured the school got tired of getting sticky crap off dorm walls and repainting! lol

+1 make sure the putty is permanent.

Thanks all for the suggestions. I'll likely use one of them. Mostly 8x10s being put up.

With the size of only 8x10, the above ideas will work like a charm.  It won't take much to hold those up.
