Why not get some archival 2-sided tape... it's expensive

long at Grand Central Artists' Materials a while back... Something
like $12 (maybe more, memory does not serve) for a roll reminiscent
of "scotch tape" seemed steep, but the stuff is terrific. Very
strong (moreso I imagine if you burnish it down with finger or
tool), and as far as I can tell so far, doesn't dry out or give
up. Also, to economize, you don't need to run it the entire length
of each edge... depending on the thickness and "spring" of the
paper, and of course the size -- you can do corners and sections.
I don't know offhand the maker's name, but can check if you need it.
...... on the continent it is sold as Neschen GUDY; but of course
rabbit glue -:) is perfect for this ; just ask restaurators all over
HOWEVER, if you change your mind and want to remove the print, you
may run into trouble... Offhand, I'd think a solvent would be
requived (lacquer thinner maybe?). You can perhaps peel the print
off slowly and verrrry carefully, but I wouldn't take a chance.
Odds are good back of the print would tear.
