Mark.....My students have had good luck with glue sticks for adhering light
weight papers. They use the sticks up quickly, which is a drawback. White
glue is cheaper. Another alternative, if you can get one, is a wax roller,
such as used in graphic design. You heat it up, roll a thin layer of wax on
the back side of the paper and then rub it down. It can be re-positioned,
too. I've still got some examples of my own work (former life...free-lance
days), and the paper is still stuck to the backing very securely after many
years. If you look through your art catalogs, you can find these rollers.
Sorry, I don't have my catalogs here to give you more info. The upfront
cost would be 50-70 dollars, but the rollers last a long time and the wax
is not very expensive.
