Will this adhesive adhere to acrylic sheets (Plexiglas)? I want to mount a thin photo paper to acrylic to get as flat a surface as possible.

The Positionable Mounting Adhesive 568 by Scotch is more for mat board, foamcore, and gatorboard surfaces. We suggest using Scotch Photomount Spray Adhesive, Spra-Ment Craft & Display Adhesive, or Grafix Laminating Film.

I like to use 300 lb watercolor paper for my oil paintings. I use this product to mount my finished work/paper onto foam core board then its ready for a traditional wood frame. Easy!
Rated by: M. Shlafer in Ann Arbor, MI
Great idea, poor execution. Once a photo has been burnished on to the adhesive, per manufacturer's instructions, lifting the photo off to transfer to mounting board yields often long, gooey, sticky web-like strands of adhesive that have a tendency to wrap around to, and stick to, front of photo. It leaves what is essentially an irreparable mess, even when using utmost care. Also, unless burnishing print to adhesive is done with rather extraordinary force, I've found it difficult to get the adhesive to stick to more than about 90% of the print's back.
Rated by: Blaine T. in Quincy, IL
this is the best dry mounting method out there. It requires no tools and is a must for any artist trying to have professional work!!
Rated by: Michael N. in Minden, NE
I was a little skeptical at first when trying this for the first time. But then - WOW! This is an absolutely dynamic product! It really works extremely well. I recommend this to anyone for all mounting purposes.
Rated by: Victoria L. in San Francisco, CA
I had previously used this project in a book making class. The teacher said it was a hard-to-find item. I was not able to find it locally-- glad for! It was even easier to use at home! Good stuff!
Rated by: john g. in chicago, IL
This is great stuff. Easy to use, repositionable, no bubbles. It's the only way to mount.
Rated by: Chris H. in Owasso, OK
Excellent adhesive! Once you get the hang of the application process, this stuff is awesome!
Rated by: Morris B. in Cleveland, OH
Maybe it was just beginner's luck but it took just a few minutes to mount an 11 x 14 inch digital color print. A fabulous product.
Rated by: kelly c. in Reading, PA
Positional Mounting Adhesive is the most accurate and absolute best adhesive for mounting of artwork and general adhesive needs. I use this product religiously and it has never let me down. Mister Art was great with ordering this product as well as with shipping and delivering. I would not hesitate using them again for anything I might need in the future. Thanks so much Mister Art.

This Positionable Mounting Adesive is wonderful! I've used it for years. It is easy to use, versitile, and the grip holds VERY well!
Rated by: annie e. in new york/new paltz, NY
this stuff is really quite fantastic. i gave it four stars because it's only great if you know how to use it properly. if you don't then it won't really work that well. my advice, use the squeegee!
Rated by: Knight M. in Highlands, NC
WATERCOLOR! This is amazing stuff for mounting watercolor paper to a rigid board before painting. No need to stretch! After using this product to bond a sheet of 90lb Arches cold press to foam core,( or other), it can be thoroughly soaked without buckling! Quick, easy, & no more spray mounts!
Rated by: David B. in Yakima, WA
Saw this product being used by another photographer and had to have it. The mounting adhesive makes the mounting of my photography so much easier. Would highly recomend it to anyone mounting pictures.
Rated by: Phil A. in Savannah, GA
Holy crap this stuff is amazing! It's easy, fast, and you don't need a giant mount press. Much better and safer than its evil twin spray adhesive. Be careful though, keep your fingers CLEAN. If you don't black blobs of it will mysteriously appear in the most inopportune places on your prints. Also, do a test with your substrate to make sure you image is not damaged by the burnishing. I had a problem with my shadow areas getting scuffed. (on inkjet photographs printed on Bradford Rag paper. Epson Enhanced Matte works great though) Otherwise, excellent.
Rated by: Marilyn R. in Cinnaminson, NJ
Great stuff! I've used it for years! I would recommend it to anyone who needs to mount lightweight materials smaller than 16x20. Great for paper, photos (even thought they don't always recommend it!) - even fabric and mylar.
Rated by: Brett W. in McPherson, KS

Great for mounting photos. I wish I had run into this product years ago!
Rated by: Coleen M. in Portland, OR
This product was easy enough to use. I used it to make and glue decorative envelope "tabs" to close my wedding invitations with. I'll find out how well they held up when my guests recieve them and let me know if they arrived in one piece.

Rated by: Rutherford W. in Philadelphia, PA
At the recommendation of Keith Smith, I ordered this product and found it to be excellent for bonding paper, leather, and cloth to supports for use in book making. I will use it again and again.

Rated by: Kendra C. in Greensboro, NC
I found the 3M Positionable Mounting Adhesive Roll easy to use. It holds my art securely all the way to the edge.
Rated by: Greg M. in Austin, TX
This product provides an excellent self-mounting option for photographs. While care must be used, it is much easier than spray adhesive and allows you to choose your own mount board. This is the first time I've used this product and I had no problems.
Rated by: Randy G. in Boulder, CO
This is great for do-it-yourself photo mounting -- no machine is required! I've mounted photos to both matte board and foam core. The mounting film applies easily and without air bubbles. You start by placing the photo down on to the film. At this point it is *not* repositionable. If you try to reposition it, you will have a gooey mess. Once the film is applied to the photo, you peel off the backing and apply the photo to the mounting board. At this stage you can reposition the photo without any problems. Be sure to follow the instruction sheet. Also, be sure to have a clean, dust-free working area, or else you will have debris sticking to the adhesive and leaving bumps behind your photo. Overall, a great product.
