Linen-Backing a Vintage Art Poster explained:

Professional Poster dealers specializing in antique Vintage Posters for collection will almost always archivally preserve their posters by mounting them on a linen based (artist's canvas) backing support. .A professional "linen-backer" stretches canvas onto a frame tight like a drum. At the beginning it resembles an artist's canvas on a frame ready to paint. Then to that he glues with 'reversible' water-soluble glue, 'canson' or water color smooth paper. On to these 2 surfaces, he then glues the poster, with the same glue, which also is 'ph' friendly, acid free and has 'anti fungus' elements. This prevents the poster from "yellowing" or acidifying in time, and being attacked by fungus with humidity. This process can take several days or even a week or more depending on the weather conditions as humidity can slow the process. As there are 3 layers of different material consistencies, they will dry at different speeds and it is important that the poster fully drys on the frame. This is to avoid that one of the materials could pull against the other, producing a buckling of the final product. This linen-backing process also protects the Vintage Poster from accidental tearing and folding. It acts as a support for a framer, to not touch the poster, but use the extra linen around the Vintage Poster, to press it in to the frame. This prevents unknowing framers from gluing the actual poster and ruining its value. There is usually a 2 to 3 inch margin of white canson paper on all 4 sides of the poster. This can be incorporated in the framing process and the small margin could be used to accentuate the space between either the frame and the Poster, or the matting and the Vintage Posters.
