I have the opportunity to display / sell some of my images in a small foyer for Customers to view as their waiting. I could go to easy way and just print off an image and slide it into a plastic sleeve. But I’d like to have them not only look better but to be able to withstand a little abuse if it’s an impulse buy and they could slip them into their luggage was their waiting. I’d like to able to affix them to a firm art board backing before slipping them in a plastic sleeve. Do any of you have an “easy” way to glue a print to art board? Cutting out art board of course won’t be tough, but what glue to use that won’t soak through, how do you keep the image centered, how do you roll any bubbles out, etc? All the while keeping the labor needed to a minimum. All questions that I’m not sure how to answer.
I’d suppose building a fixture in the shape of an “L” would be one way to keep the art board from moving and be a starting point to lay the print on it. The fixture would need to accommodate many sizes of prints (4 x 6, 5 x 7, 8 x 10, 11 x 14 and 13 x 19).
Not wanting to reinvent the wheel, I thought I’d inquire if any of you have come up against the same questions and had any luck figuring it all out?
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
