So, to help with this problem, we’ve found a few items that will allow you to put up any poster you want without ruining your fabulous paint job and allowing you to get that deposit back!
Poster Hanging Tape
These handy little bits of putty or glue are often a solution for putting up posters. They typically work best with painted concrete blocks, but can be used for other types of walls as well. Glue dots are inexpensive and can last for a long time. However, they don’t handle humidity very well, so you may want to consider the type of climate you are in before trying to put up posters or decorations on your newly painted wall.
Wall Mounting Tabs
Mounting tabs are starting to be used more and more today especially by companies that are outfitting homes and businesses, and you can use them in your own home as well. Mounting tabs are great for securing light items like posters without damaging the wall. They might cost a little more than glue dots or poster hanging tape, but it might be worth the investment.
Velcro Mounted Hooks
Velcro mounted hooks are very similar to mounting tabs, but they are used to secure much heavier items to the wall. They are excellent candidates for hanging up posters that have been framed, opposed to just a simple paper one.
Whether its Velcro mounted hooks or poster hanging tape, all of these choices will allow you to hang up posters, or any other decorations you might have, without ruining the paint job or jeopardizing your security deposit!
