How do ya'll attach your heavier stuff to your bulletin boards? I've got a fabric covered board and I want to put my laminated calendar stuff on it, but the last time I tacked on a laminated poster, it got pulled down over time and ripped through the tacks. What do you do?

How thick is it?

If the cork is thick enough, you can use pushpins. If the cork is thin, then I use lots of staples.

Use pushpins....allow the calendar to "rest" on the pushpins....kinda anchor the item on the pushpin. Does that make sense? It works!! In other words, don't push the pin through the item. Push the pin in the board---but NOT all the way, then "position" the item on top of the pin, between the head of the pin and the board. Do this with pins all the way around the item. Good Luck!

I also don't push pins or staples through my laminated stuff. I put 3-4 pins below the poster just like Elmspring said, and then I put 3-4 per side but put the pin part just touching the edge and pushed all the way in so it keeps the edge down by friction.

Also, mavalus tape is marvelous. Put a couple of big strips across the top on the back to tape it to the fabric for extra security.
