I use wallpaper for backgrounds on my bulletin boards. It's fast to put up, it doesn't fade and it doesn't show staple holes. In the summer, I look for wallpaper on sale. I prefer the tweed-like designs. I put wallpaper on my bulletin boards first thing in the fall and leave it up all year. If I really want a different background later, I just put it over the wallpaper. Then when I take the special background down, the wallpaper background is ready to go!
