So you need to find a poster?
A nice art poster or a poster of your favorite celebrity and put it on your wall but the boss or your Mother / Wife / or whoever will not permit you to pin or tape your poster to your wall encase you ruin the new paint or rip the wallpaper. Then I recommend that you use Blu-Tack to stick your poster to your wall. It will not ruin your art poster or the wall. It offers a clean, safe and a simple alternative to tapes and pins.
Blu-Tack is a versatile, reusable putty-like pressure sensitive adhesive. (Like blue reusable chewing gum) The original version of the product was blue, but many colours are now available. It is based on a formulation consisting of synthetic rubber, polymers, oil and inorganic fillers.
Warning: Blu-Tack can leave an oily stain on paper materials if attached for a long period of time.
Blu Tack is known as “Zorkai” in north eastern areas of Canada. In South Africa it is commonly known as “Prestik (as made by Bostik), or “Sticky Stuff” (as made by Pritt).
Where to buy Blu-tack for your Find A Poster poster
It can be found at most good book shops and supermarkets.
Similar products that You Can use are from other manufacturers include “Buddies” (coloured pink), “Pritt-Tack”, “Poster Putty”, “Tac ‘N Stick”, “Ticky Tack” and “Sticky Tack”. “White Tack”, made by the German company UHU, is similar but, as the name suggests, is white, Being white it doesn’t show through easily on posters as Blu-Tack does.
