OK, here's a scenario. You have several
posters that you want to display. You can't afford to frame them all right
now but just need a cheaper method for now.
You want the cheapest way to both give
some protection and be able to display your prize too.
Again let's start with the simplest. This
is what I call TEMPORARY displays.
I've gone into small collector shops and
seen posters, what we call in the industry, 'boarded and bagged'. This
is also done a lot for collector shows. They would take an acid free board
and attach the poster to it with small rolled pieces of acid free tape
from the back (almost like tacking it) in several major points. Then they
would put it in a large acid free bag and tape the bag down tight from
the back side. The tighter the bag was taped the better and smoother the
poster looked. The posters could then be stood up so customers could flip
through them to see what was available.
VERY inexpensive to display and supplies are easy to attain. Can be stood
up or hung up. But REMEMBER, this is temporary.
bags are a little saggy and not as clear. Posters sag in spots if left
for a long time.
TIP: The tighter the
bag the less the sag. Maybe that should be a song title!
Who has it?
That's what we call the BIG question?
