Ideas for Posting Photos on Office Bulletin Board

How can I display pictures on my office bulletin board other than with a thumb tack? I have a cork bulletin board and we have lots of photos we took at an office picnic I would like to display. I thought maybe covering the bulletin board with light blue copy paper and then put the pictures on top. Any ideas?

At church I used material to cover the boards; a very light flannel or other lightweight material. Then you can use tacks that won't damage the material or use glue dots. Also can put a metal (thin) behind cloth or paper covering and use magnets!

Hafwit seems to be on the right track. Maybe aluminum foil under the paper or fabric would work to hold the magnets. I suggest as heavy duty as you can get. Maybe the office could order some. There also is a product called Maptac. You put little balls of it on the back of pictures (one in each corner), after you have softened it in your fingers. Most office supply places carry it.

I have taped pictures (and cards) using tape loops on backs, to long pieces of ribbon in long rows top to bottom. I used this on a door and tacked the top and bottom of the ribbons on the top and bottom of the door where they wouldn't be seen. You can put a number of strips of ribbon on a door. This same technique could also work on a bulletin board.

If you want to use the copy paper, use the putty. Poster putty, sticky tack etc are other names for maptac. There are several different ones and it's available at WalMart. They work well IF you really soften them by pulling and pulling until they are soft and feel warm. You only need a very small piece in each corner and it's very easy to remove.

For years I have used a product that feels a little like bubble gum/ putty/ play doh called "Plastic-tac." It seems to never dry out, and is easily removed without leaving a spot. You tear off a piece and soften it a little between your thumb and finger. Press it onto the back of a picture then press onto the wall or board. I usually use more than one piece. Top, sides and or bottom. A packet of this product will last for years, and has lots in the package.

Thriftmeg, aluminum foil is not magnetic. You need to use something with steel in it for the magnets to stick.
