Below we will try to describe the most common techniques of preserving a poster.
These modes are all available for posters purchased at Milano Manifesti.
Each has its advantages and disadvantages, generally Milano Manifesti prefers to keep the poster in its original state, leaving the customer the choice of the mode he prefers, but assisting him if he wants in all the useful phases from purchase to home exposure.
The customer can buy the manifest in the state in which it is located or instruct Milan Manifesto of the packaging of the finished product ready for display in the home, in the office or in a public place.
The most important posters have been framed, however, and are therefore ready for any exhibition solution.
LINING ON PAPER
The poster is glued with reversible glue, antimuff and anti-acid on the support of acidic paper. the purpose is predominantly conservative. so mounted can be framed, mounted on cardboard or canvas and hung directly.
Main advantage: great storage and low cost.
Main disadvantage: risky hanging it without frame or frame. Especially if the manifest is large Size is possible that it tends to descend into the possible frame.
LINING WITH CANVAS (BACKING ON LINEN)
the poster is glued, always with anti-acid glue, anti-acid and reversible, on anti-acid paper glued on more or less synthetic fabric and more or less often. The aim is conservative and exhibition. So mounted can be hung as such, framed or mounted on cardboard base or wooden frame. In addition, through this type of lining, it is possible to remedy some inevitable damage of time, such as small and large tears, fraying of edges, shortcomings, stiffening or leafing of paper. On this safety basis provided by the frame with paper interposition it is then possible to work further to fill gaps with brush interventionants.
Advantages: preservation sheltered from the work of mold and fungi, easy maneuverability without risk of tears and exposure without the need for protection, homologated to its original destination of road affixing.
Disadvantages: cost, risk that the fabric does not follow the movements of the paper generating bubbles or tears (avoidable with the most up-to-date techniques), difficulty in appreciating the consistency of paper
The poster is glued, always with reversible glues, on anti-acid paper and this one glued on a double cardboard with breathable alveoular soul. The aim is conservative and exhibition. So mounted can be hung as such or framed with a frame also very thin and without glass.
Advantages: high lightness, easy maneuverability without the risk of tearing and exposure without the need for protection, homogenous to its original destination of road posting.
Disadvantages: cost, need to keep it rigid without being able to roll it up
MOUNTING ON WOODEN FRAME (HOOPING)
The poster, hooped or glued on paper leaving a wider edge, is turned around a wooden frame and fixed to it with studs or staples, on the sides or on the back. The purpose is conservative and exhibition. so mounted can be hung as such, it turns out uneleded and pleasantly protruding from the wall.
Advantages: discreet lightness, easy transportability and exposure without the need for protection, homogenous to its original destination of road posting.
Disadvantages: cost, need to keep it rigid without being able to roll it up.
The poster in its original state, rather than mounted on paper or intellect, is framed in a traditional way under glass or without glass. Glass can be museum anti-reflective (very expensive!) or traditional. the purpose is conservative, especially if subvetro, and exhibition.
Advantages: protection from the elements and giving a certain classic elegance to the object.
Disadvantages: weight and footprint.

In all the cases presented here next to it (mounting on paper or cardboard, framing and hooping) the question arises of how to hang the poster on the chosen wall.
If the poster has been framed, mounted on cardboard or on wooden frame, it can be hung with simple hooks anchored to the structure.
However, there are other solutions, cheaper and closer to their natural road post. The poster, in fact, as such if the paper holds or mounted on a light paper and/or canvas stand, can be fixed to the wall with several very simple solutions:
– wooden bars: the poster is fixed to two wooden bars, one top and the other lower through stationery class or clothespins or, if also framed with pins or nails sunk obviously in the canvas and not in the poster. An example is the “Le Nil” in the photo below.
– Snap bars: these are two double spring aluminum bars that hold the poster, the one at the top, and keep it tense, the one at the bottom
– bands, discs and magnetic nails: these are ferrous or magnetic bands fixed to the wall at the top and bottom with double-sided tape. Similar solutions are self-adhesive magnetic discs or wide-headed magnetic nails. In all these cases the poster is then held by magnets placed at the supports.
