The most common and a very safe way
to pack posters is also very inexpensive
and simple. You just take a common
mailing envelope, and cut off the four
corners. These corners are then used to
position and hold the poster on the
inside of the cardboard sheets. Place
four cut corners of the mailing envelope
over the four corners of your posters.
Place the poster on the inside of one of
the cardboard sheets and tape those
corners (not the poster) to the board.

Good way to mount poster to board

Using this method, the poster is
securely held to the board by the four
corners, but no tape touches the poster.

Some put the poster in a clear plastic
bag and then put the bag to the board,
using the four corners method.

Mounting the corner

Finally, with the poster on the board,
held by the four corners, place the two
cardboard sheets together and
completely seal all outer edges with
packing tape. This is the least expensive
and safest method I have seen to date.
However, this does not work for very
large posters, where the cardboard can
be bent in transit.
Most of the main dealers use 2-3 pieces
of heavy cardboard (or foam core) on
each side of the poster. The poster is
then plastic bagged and fastened to the
inside of the sheets with tape or with
corners, as described above.
