Default Mounting Digital Prints to Foam-core


Anyone had experience mounting digital photos from an inkjet printer on foam-core?

I'm looking for a reasonable internet source for foam-core and any tips & tricks. I have the desire to mount 8X10 photos or smaller on foam-core and hang them with velcro tabs.

I've heard that the heat adhesive isn't such a good idea with inkjet prints...
...but figure a spray adhesive might work.

Thanks in advance for any comments!

Default mounting

You can purchase adhesive coated foam core material at some office supply stores. Buy a foam cutting knife and then when you go to mount your work use a "slip sheet" under your photo. Wax paper will work. Position the slip sheet on the adhesive material and pull slowly out to mount the photo. I often use a sheet of bond paper over the photo and a plastic triangle to roll the photo down. This keeps it flat and uniform.
