How to temporarily attach pictures to poster board?
There are several ways to temporarily attach pictures to poster board. Most people prefer to use regular tape simply because it is easy to use and remove. It also tends to provide better hold and will stay in place for several months or even years, if needed. There are also other ways to attach pictures to poster board, such as: • By using photo corners or mounting corners. These are just for the corners of the picture, and they keep photos free from tape or glue residue when they are removed. • Removable glue dots, which work well as glue, but they are not a permanent solution. • Rubber cement. • Glue stick. • Sticky putty. • Double sided tape. Try to avoid things like hot glue or even standard glue because they may ruin the poster board and/or the photos.
