In the log term, yes.  I've got to finish paying off the actual pieces, though, before I can start paying for the framing ; )

A couple hiccups with the framing process...one being they originally put the metal part on the back to hang it as if it was a landscape piece instead of portrait but finally my first JB commission is framed and ready to show off....

I picked up my commission today from the framer's.  I asked for UV-protected glass, even though there is no direct sunlight where it will be hanging, I thought it best to be on the safe side and plan ahead for wherever I may live in the future.

I asked for blue matting to signify the "blue area" of the moon upon which Attilan is located, plus blue is considered to be a royal color (fitting for the Inhuman royal family).

Since I live in an apartment, putting nails in the wall isn't the course of action I can really take.  I have some adhesive fasteners from Scotch that I've hung framed prints with before, but I'm not sure if I should use them on this.  What do any of you think?

What I think is you got yourself a Great commission nicely framed.

Oh, and you should hang it. But, be careful of that Scotch stuff I had a picture drop after a week or two on the wall.

Thanks, William.  I had a similar situation with the Scotch adhesives in the past, hence my apprehension.  I'll figure something out.  Now that the commission is back in my possession, that's less worry I have right now!

Jeremiah, I use MIGHTY HOOKS, as seen on TV! Seriously, they work great, IMO.

Would those be the same as the "Hercules Hooks" as seen here ?

That wouldn't be a bad idea, I'm just concerned about leaving marks in the wall.

Yup, same thing. They leave a small hole, that can easily be filled. You can even use white toothpaste to fill them in. :)

toothpaste was my response, too.

Apartments are usually repainted (or touched up) anyway after someone vacates -- I've grown out of my desire to ever expect a deposit back, so I hang everything.
