How To Mount a Poster or Print To a Plywood Panel
How to Mount a Map or Poster Without Damaging It
On each corner in the back, and in the center of the top edge (if it's heavy), put a couple of pieces of clear box tape, 5" long or so, next to each other, so that you've "laminated" a spot about the size of your open hand.
For each of those spots, cut a piece of box tape about a foot long.Make a loop of it, sticky side out, and overlap the ends. Wrapping it around your outstretched fingers is a good way.
Set one loop on each of the box-taped spots you've made on the back of the poster, and it will flatten down.
Stick it to the wall, pressing firmly where the tape is.
When you take it down, remove the loops and put them in the trash, and the corners will be clean and strong for the next time you want to put it up.
QuestionDoes the paint come off if I pull off the tape? Because I don't want my wall to be damaged.wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerNo, if you pull lightly, the paint won't come off. But, if you pull the tape off extremely fast, then yes, there is a chance that the paint will come off. You can use poster tack for something less damaging but all sticky items have the potential to pull paint off if the paint surface is poor.Thanks!
QuestionWon't the tape on the back eventually bleed through and discolor that portion of the poster?Community AnswerYou can get an inexpensive poster frame, and then you don't have to worry about the tape discoloring the portions it touches. You could also use the 3M command strips that are made for posters.Thanks!

- Use good box tape. Cheap tape won't hold things well and may leave a gummy residue behind.
- Of course, you could just get the poster or map laminated, and use tape, but this way is cheaper and the map is easier to store between times if it's not fully laminated.
- Use tacks but only put the sides of the tacks on it,notthe point.
- If your poster or map is too heavy for this method, you can do a similar thing on the front. Put tape on the front of the corners (all the way to the edge) and then tape it to the wall but put the tape over your "laminated" corner.
- Use magnets. There are some strong magnetic poster hangers that hang posters without damaging them.
