Would these posters work with an outdoor sandwich board? We have the acrylic inserts which have our regular events printed on them, but we are looking for ways to temporarily put posters over them about occasional events.

I'm not sure how you'd attach the poster to the acrylic so it would be secure, but otherwise it should work. This material is what is still used for billboards that are done in sheets, and those are stuck up with what's essentially wallpaper paste. If you don't need to reuse them, you could use an adhesive backed material to stick on the temporary sign, and some of those can be reused several times if you take proper care when removing and storing them. Contact our office and we can help you figure out the best option for you.

What would be the best way to affix this to a concrete exterior wall?
Question by: Sarah on Feb 12, 2019 9:26:00 PM
If it's temporary for a short period of time, you could probably tape it to the wall with a tape designed to stick to concrete or similar surfaces. A product like our Building Wrap might be a better choice since it's an adhesive backed vinyl designed to stick to concrete, and it would last longer if you needed it stay up for more than a few days.

This heavy weight latex-saturated wet strength paper is tear resistant, water proof, fade resistant, and scuff and scratch resistant, making it an excellent choice for indoor and outdoor poster size prints and billboards. This paper can also be applied with standard wallpaper paste for an inexpensive short term wallpaper solution. Available in widths up to 54"
Approx. longevity of up to 1 year outdoors and 20 years indoors.
It's a heavy weight and durable for a paper, while being inexpensive. It's PVC-free and eco-friendly.
It's not a traditional photo paper and the finish isn't as smooth and consistent as a resin coated photo paper, so it wouldn't be appropriate for high end photo reproduction.
Indoor or outdoor posters and signs that won't be ruined by water and aren't easy to tear.
