Hanging

I am basically incapable of hanging posters on the wall such that they do not fall off, bow in the middle, slid sideways, etc. I have experimented with numberous styles of tape, numerous locations for the tape, including four corners, one middle; four corners, no middle; random scatterings; big bends; small bends; I even attempted an old west wanted poster style, but the effect was so disconcerting I took them down. I walk in to class every morning and take inventory of how many posters have fallen down during the night.

Right Now:
1) Gotta Fight, Gotta Try, Gotta Never Quit is on the floor
2) 3 in 1 is buckling
3) Big Goal #1 has collapsed
4) Adjectives is hanging on by the right two corners only

What is wrong with me? I welcome any poster-hanging suggestions.

UPDATE:
After a long weekend away from class, I came in this morning to find no posters falling down, buckling, or looking boot. Zero (0). It's gonna be a great week.

throw out that 99$ cent-store tape and buy the good stuff. or use a staple gun and post on the walls instead..

or just hole punch the posters and hang them on yourself using string..

I'm all about the staple gun. Those suckers aren't going anywhere.

I rehung everything using packing tape and smaller bent-over-backwards tape loops, as well as two strategically placed in the center. Cross your fingers.

At our school, you have to use masking tape with a dot of glue on the back. Done this way, the posters will stay up until the heat in the building gets so high that the tape and glue melt. Good luck!
