3M makes a positional mounting adhesive. Check out http://
I've seen it used for regular prints and it should work for alt process

Why not get some archival 2-sided tape... it's expensive
(relatively) -- I bought a roll about 1/3 inch wide & reasonably 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.
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.
