Digital cameras and large-format ink-jet printers have made poster-sized prints easier and cheaper to produce. Here's a tip that will help you avoid expensive disappointments with your super-sized prints:
Typically, photos are mounted on a lightweight foam board using a spray adhesive. The process takes some practice - especially with poster-sized photos - so you may want to leave large mounting jobs to professionals.
But mounting offers some real benefits. First, it makes displaying or framing big enlargements and posters easier. It also avoids the wrinkles and creases that often occur when poster-sized prints are stored rolled up. Plus it makes storing and transporting your photos easier - they lay out flat, and can be placed atop one another easily.
