Mounting Your Poster

Now that you have had the perfect picture or artwork posterized, it’s time to show it off for all the world to see! From frames to duct tape, there are tons of options out there to help you display your poster of pure awesomeness. One really simple way is dry mounting – here are just a few reasons why it rocks.

  1. It’s easy, and you just can’t argue with that.
  2. It’s cheaper than filling up your gas tank! (ok..bad example…most things are cheaper than filling up your gas tank. But it IS inexpensive.)
  3. From foam board to cardboard boxes, the options of where to stick your poster are pretty much endless, and that dear friends is a lot of options! (just remember, dry mounting is permanent so choose wisely.)
  4. It adds protection and looks great.

So where do you start? All you have to do is wander down to your local hardware shop and say, “spray adhesive please.” Each spray adhesive is a little bit different, so be sure to follow the specific directions on the container. The gist of what you will do is spray the adhesive on your mounting board, carefully position the poster on the board, and smooth it out with your hands working out any bubbles and/or wrinkles. (You will want to start from the center of the poster and work your way to the edges pushing out any bubbles you come in contact with.) And there you have it! See, what’d we tell ya – super duper easy.

One of our awesome customers, Super Soccer Stars, used dry mounting to adhere their posters onto cardboard boxes that they used as drop boxes. “They turned out perfectly and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. They look great in our facility and at our drop locations throughout New York City!” Wahoo to dry mounting!
