    So I'm in need of a solution to hang up big-ass prints without the use of frame or foam core.
    I will use foam core later on, so this is just a temporary solution. Please help me out! :thumbup:
    Double sided tape will ruin the images so that is a no go.

    What type of paper are the prints on? Are they chromogenic prints, inkjet prints, or off-set press prints?

    <br><br>Ordered from the biggest photo-print store here in Norway, so probably some real professional stuff.

    On the rear side of the image, yes ... if there will be any on the front depends on the paper used I suppose ;)

    If you don't mind little holes in your wall, push pins, but not pushing it through the print itself, just into the wall and kind of hold the print up with the edges of the pins.. if that makes sense.

    Translation?: I have no idea what kind of paper or what kind of print I am paying for. ;)

    Some 'real professional stuff' is more absorbant, and more durable, than some other kinds of 'real professional stuff'.
