Recently I asked for advice on mounting a 48 1/2 by 61 1/2 laminated map. The customer wanted to write on the map so we couldn't use glazing. The mounting question wasn't answered but someone gave the idea to use plexi in back for support. I ordered up a piece and then proceeded to figure out how to keep the map adhered to the plexi. Went up to local carpet store to talk about adhesives and came back with a 3M spray that adheres plastics and paint roller with a hard cover. We sprayed the plexi and laid down the map beginning at one end and rolling as we progressed to the other end of the plexi. I was quite amazed at how well it looked. Snapped on a large profile metal frame and called the customer for pick-up. Sounds simple now....
