RE: Grommets

I have put grommets into rives bfk drawing/printmaking paper to hang it and
it works fine...they were just standard grommets that I bought at a craft
store...they were the 1/2 grommets I believe...and it ended up being part of
the look of the art piece for sure...but, putting them into paper works
fine...I would think that it would work well for foam core too...except that
the foam in the foam core is not as solid as paper can be...

Subject: Grommets

I have a large foam core board to display (about 30 x 40 ") which I
would like to display by hanging. It would seem some large (1/2" or so)
grommets along the top edge would work. I wondered if anyone has put
grommets into their work. If so, what products do you recommend? I have
seen grommets like this in canvas banners. I would love to acquire just
one more way of installing art. It has always been sort of my nemesis.
Thanks so much.
