Linen backing is an archival conservation method that adds value to a poster. The poster is mounted with wheat paste onto acid free paper, which has been previously adhered to canvas, referred to as ‘linen’. This process provides stability to the piece. Lined posters may be rolled, are ready for framing, and are easier to handle overall. It is a reversible method, although once archivally mounted, they are usually left mounted to preserve the integrity of the poster. Should a lined poster sustain physical damage in the future, poster removal is possible. This cannot be said for most other mounting methods.
