Arghhh.....as I read all of your inventive ways to use glue guns to hang
artwork, I think of our upcoming show at the local mall where we have to
hang everything on drapery pins onto cloth-covered screens.... We have to
put some sort of HANGER onto every piece of work. Can you say "time
consuming"?!

Last year I glue-gunned posterboard tags (with a hole cut out) onto the top
back center of all the 2-D stuff so that it would hang on the hooks. And
all 2-D work has to be affixed to matboard or something to start with. I've
been sticking most stuff onto matboard or foamcore all through the year, but
we'll need to start the other nonsense soon, too.

Ah, to be able to glue-gun or staple the whole business onto a wall...
