Bus Shelter posters (how to display? they're so massive!)

Hey guys

I have a couple bus shelter posters which I like because the images are so cool and eye-catching; usually they're about 6 feet tall. Problem is they're so big they are very difficult to display; no (affordable) frame will store them, and you can tape them onto the wall, but it doesn't look as nice, and a few times they've fallen down from the weight and gotten some dents and folds.

Do any of you guys own any of these and if so, how do you display them? There's a guy on ebay who sells these clamping hangers which seem pretty cool, but he doesn't offer them in the US. Anything comparable you can get here?

Try 3M plastic hooks, I use them for heavy duty posters that are similar to those.

I had one from The Shining, and had a frame made for me at Hobby Lobby. If you are going to have any sort of glass cover, make sure they reinforce the thing. I had glass in it originally, and putting it in my car caused the frame to twist, breaking the glass.

They stick to the wall. They have adhesive on the back.

They attach to the wall and can be purchased in various sizes. Here is a website with them http://cableorganizer.com/hooks, but you can purchase them anywhere, Wal-mart, Target, etc...

And my posters have metal holes already.

so you stick the adhesive to the wall, but what would the hooks hook into? how would you mount the poster to the hook if it doesn't have holes? this isn't a mylar one with holes like the ones you see in theaters, it's just a standard double sided heavy stock poster like you see in bus shelters.

is there any type of clamping hanger system like the one the guy sells here?

My posters are double sided that hang in stores (Best Buy) and already have metal holes in them. I thought the bus posters were the same, but they aren't. My bad..
