Alright, so I've got this poster, and it's quite large (4'x6', or 1.2 x 1.8 meters). I have no idea how to hang this biatch. I've got the space on a wall, now the question is what do I need to hang it without putting holes through the poster? Anyone have suggestions or know of products that I can use? I found one site that would've worked great, but they don't do orders under $50. As far as price goes, I'm looking for something hopefully under $15.

EDIT: To anyone wondering what it's a poster of, it's 28 Weeks Later, here ya go ;)

If you want to keep it pristine you might want to frame it, the colors will fade and change if you dont. You could put two nails in the wall, put some.. er.. "things you use to secure laundry to the line" along the top of the poster, run a string trough it and tie those to the nails.

Nice and ghetto, yo.

you'd need something to clamp it from the top which has some wires or string. then you can hang it on a pin. alternatively you could use cellotape or blutack to stick it on.

I'll stop by the frame store not to far from my house and see if they sell 4'x6' frames, but I doubt it.

I can think of two solutions:

Take needles and put one in every corner (might take more when it's that big), if the poster is made of cloth you wont leave and noticeable holes. There will be (very) small holes if it's made of paper, wont cost you a krona either ;).

Solution number two is to go to IKEA and buy a big frame, don't know how much that would cost though.

They make specific poster hanging adhesive strips, I know you can find them at Lowes, I bet you could find them at Wal*Mart or something (I reccomend avoiding Wal*Mart). They're basically double sided tape that won't ruin walls and your poster. Pretty sturdy too, I've had the same poster hung up by them for about 2 years now. I can't remember the brand though, sorry.

But, your best bet is a frame.

Over here we have something called "Tesa poster strips", it's something like rubber with glue on both sides. Problem with those things though is that you can damage the poster if you're not careful when removing the things later on. 704691A1.gif

Bluetack? In case you don't have it, it's a rubbery, sticky lump which can me moulded into shapes and stuff. Get a little blob of it on each corner of the poster, then stick it to wall.

I used double-sided tape for some of mine, and when I ran out, I just used clear Scotch tape on every corner and side of the poster. The double-sided tape is probably best if you don't want to frame it.

I use that too, or stickytack as its sometimes called, but it probably wont work very good on a poster that size unless you put a bunch on, and it could stain your wall + my bigger posters fall down occasionaly, so id probably recomend the double sided tape.
