    Hello! I have just moved into a new place and I have been looking into purchasing some Displates. Basically they are thin metal "posters" (http://displate.com) for mounting onto the walls. However my problem comes in that the mounting system they provide is a glue backed magnet which sticks to the wall and in turn holds the metal plate in place. Unfortunately the wallpaper in the room I want to mount them is textured and will not hold the plates securely.

    I was hoping that someone might be able to suggest ways for me being able to mount the plates onto the wall without the use of the magnets but without having to drill through the plate to attach some kind of hook or mounting device.

    The specifications of the plates are:

    45cm (17,7") / 32cm (12,6")
    0.9 kg. (2 pounds)
    0.5 mm

    All suggestions are welcomed and appreciated!
