Fabric bulletin boards, slight fuzzy or carpet like are fabulous. You don't
need to pin, tack or staple. Just get a good supply of just loop self stick
Velcro. Sticks to art work; loops to board. Easily repositioned and
removed from display. I have these boards at one of my schools and am
considering buying some remnant carpet in a good neutral for my other one.
Get the lowest pile or loop carpet you can. Also plan to check out the
fabric store to see if that is cheaper.
