    EnvyNeko (2 дня назад) #48318283So, from reading the comments it's not a problem of putting them up but how to display them. Have you tried looking into get poster frames? Michaels sells some pretty cheap poster frames that fit art prints pretty well. Putting anything in a frame makes it classy XD
    How big are these prints? Like, 11x17? 6x9?
    What I personally do is put the prints I get in these cheap poster frames and then put a command strip up with one of the plastic hooks that go with it then just put the frame on that. Easy to take down and rearrange and doesn't damage the walls.


    I'll have to get back to you on the print sizes later, and yes you're correct, it's just a matter of how to display them lol. Also i should add that i do not live in the U.S. and i'm from a third world country so we don't have a michael's, but i'm sure i can find someone that can make frames.

    Jenthehen (5 дней назад) #48135529I'd probably put them in those slip covers that can go in a binder!

    OP here, sorry for the late reply! Yes i was thinking about storing them in a display book for now cause that looks good, even though some have been given to me in a plastic see through slip bag already.

    NekoVader (5 дней назад) #48151960Can't you use something like tesa powerstrips. I use them for all my posters and have never damaged neither the wall nor my posters. Here is a link to them on Amazon Germany, maybe there is something similar available in your country. They work pretty well, even after years they don't leave marks on the wallpaper.

    OP here, we have command strips down here! It's just a matter of finding a way to display them so it looks good on the wall i guess is what i'm asking.

    WanderingWastrel (5 дней назад) #48141288Short-term answer: as greenknight said, portfolios work very well, at least for storage. For my B2-sized anime advertising posters, I use www.amazon.com/... which is specifically for the most common size of ad poster used in Japan. (most of the cost as stated there is shipping from Japan)
    You could get one of these desktop display units www.bagsunlimit... if you're made of money, I suppose. It's a bit out of my budget, so I haven't tried them myself, but it's an idea.
    Long-term answer: Move. I know that sounds snarky, but that's what I'm doing myself. Where I live now I can't put up more than a couple of posters, so I'm going to move back into an apartment. Already put a deposit down on a place, and when an open apartment comes up, I'm going to move. Where am I now I can't enjoy my collections, and what's the point of having a collection if you can't enjoy it?


    OP here, this is an interesting suggestion. Might be a lil pricey for me. Also, don't get me wrong my mom doesn't mind them, she just wants me to find a way to display them in an aesthetically pleasing way. I guess for now i'm gonna have to store them in a display book. Also a few of the prints i have are on photo paper, i guess framing them can be an option?

    I keep my larger ones in plastic slipcovers if I'm not hanging them so they don't get exposed to dust, and you can still see the artwork. Most artists I've bought prints from online either pack them in cardboard or other protective packing, so if you're ordering them off the internet you can always just leave them in the packaging until you can hang them.

    If the reason your mom doesn't want them hung on the wall is because she doesn't want a frame nailed in rather than the artwork itself, you can always try sticking them on with either adhesive velcro strips or sticky tack. I ordered some from here and they're easy to cut down so you can hang multiple prints off a single strip: www.amazon.com/... I haven't had any issues with this brand of adhesives damaging or peeling the paint off the wall if I want to remove them.

    This idea might not help you display them per se, but I keep my overflow of prints, artwork, etc. in artist portfolios. They make a lot of different sizes and types and really help protect the artwork. The ones that lay flat are easy to browse through too, plus they're often designed like a binder so you can add more pages as needed. Until you fill it to overflowing and need to buy an additional one. :)

    Here's an example: www.amazon.com/...
