Removing a hardboard mounting - Advice please

Hi all.

Has anyone ever had a poster removed from hardboard backing?

I'm looking at a poster which has been unfortunately treated in this way and i'm looking to advice.

Many thanks
Jo

    Yes. I’ve remove multiple posters. It takes a lot of bestine and patience. They key it to elevate one side of the poster and poor/work the bestine in while lift the poster. I recommend a mask as the chemical smell is strong.

    Another option is to send it to a restorer. But it will likely cost $200 or more, so the poster needs to worth far more than that to consider this option.

    Great point Bruce. You will most likely want to linenback the poster after it is removed as it will be a wavy mess. You will also have to clean the remaining residue off the back of the poster.
