1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Question about adhering a poster on: November 26, 2013 06:13:10 PM
I've used Scotch brand removable poster tape before and liked it.  Have you considered that option?  I'm assuming the 3M strips you are talking about are Command--if not, maybe use the Command strips? You might want to consider having it laminated, making it even more durable and also maybe making using Command strips more palatable.  Debra

Sounds like Tyvek to me.  Debra

Personally, I believe you are "supposed" to do whatever works best for you.  I thought this was an interesting website...http://www.britishorigami.info/academic/lister/glue.php

I suggest using a craft knife (like exacto) and a quilting ruler.  You'll need some sort of surface on which to do the cutting--a larger self-healing mat (often used in quilting) would work best.  Not sure how easy it will be to manipulate the larger sheets that you are talking about.

I love label makers.  I think they'd suit your purpose for this task (you can get different types of tapes--clear, colored), but a label maker can come in handier than you might have thought.  Everyone I know who takes the plunge (they seem like a luxury) ends up saying they love them and are glad for the purchase.  Debra

I stick to at least 80# weight cover stock.  Two online sources include Marco's Paper (marcopaper.com) and The Paper Cut(thepapercut.com).  Your cards really will look better with the right weight card stock.  Debra

If the surface you used the pigment ink on was glossy (you mentioned slick), it may not.  From: http://www.mementoesintime.com/stampingbasics2.htm#ixzz2P5KL6CaQ: "Pigment ink can be very unsuccessful on glossy or coated card [stock] as it often wont dry. You can try heat setting it with a heat gun but the success of this will depend on the ink brand you are using. Some pigment inks will not dry at all on glossy cardstock, whereas others will dry if left a long time and others only dry when they are heat set."

You could try a heat gun, but that may not work.  You could sprinkle embossing powder onto it and then heat--but you may not want the surface embossed.

If all else fails, see if you can wipe/pull the pigment ink off and reapply a dye ink.

Hope it works out.

I think I'd try something like this product (heat and bond for fabric):  http://www.joann.com/heat-n-bond-lite-iron-on-adhesive-17-w-x-5yds/prd2982/

Have you thought about something like this (I'm not a Walmart fan, but this is the site that came up when I searched):  http://www.walmart.com/ip/15407946?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227000000000&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=&wl3=21486607510&wl4=&wl5=pla&veh=sem
