Parce : Yeah the frame is a good idea but when the things is so huge and not square at all it's probably not the solution.

Gdn_kirby : Do you mean nails, and do you have picture to show me?

all of these are supported by the nails and its almost impossible to see them.


okay they are called wire brads

and the size is 1/2 x 18 and you get well over 100 in a pack for 2 bucks i got them at just a local hardware store im sure you can get them at any hardware store.

There is no problem making a frame on your own, and it's not necessarily difficult either, and if you use front protection in durable plastic it won't be that heavy either.

I had mine all up with wire brads, as mentioned above. Eventually, for gallery purposes I mounted them, using 2-ply chip-board as the base, and spray mounting a solid piece of canson textured paper to the chip-board (and I wrapped it around back for smooth edges). I think the mounts worked out great, but the wire brads work well for keeping them on the wall. Just make sure you don't push them in too far, so you can pull them out with pliers or your fingers later.

If 58 x 58 and down, I use bluetack.

Its that reusable putty stuff college kids use for posters.

Hope that helps

a nice frame for big stuff, i find bluetac sucks balls, more promising is double sided foam tape, however it rapes your walls when you try pealing it off. best bet would be pins which were mentioned earlier in thread by someone or just a desent frame.
