Garyk Don't remember the name or number but there is a spray made for photo mounting that peels off easily. Pretty sure it is a 3m product but labeled "re-positionable" and in a black can. I did a search and found it and it is photo/artist mounting glue #72 or #75. Since it can be peeled off and reattached you would have to use care with the routing.

If I'm using a picture glued to the board then I do NOT print it in reverse. Print it, glue it, let is dry a few minutes then carve it.

However, if I am doing a photo transfer to the wood then I do print it in reverse. There are good details on how to do the photo transfer onto wood all over Youtube.

POINT OF ADVISE: No matter what method of transfer you use, I always print out a copy of what I want to accomplish and keep it close by for reference. It has come in handy numerous times already. There will be times you can't put all of the detail into your sign so you can refer to the print to decide what to cut and what to skip.

rpludwig reverse print on avery label backing sheets (buy the ones with two large labels per sheets) discard the labels, inkjet printer, lay it on the wood and rub vigorously with a credit card or wallpaper hard roller...works well, nothing to remove...

I use this stuff for scroll saw patterns. Don't see why it wouldn't work for your application too.

I also use the old fashioned carbon paper and an ink pen to use to transfer stencils to the board.

Good luck!!

rcp612 Oliver, I used a piece of qswo scrap that I had that was big enough to be a good trial. It was only sanded to 120 and, now that you brought it up, that may be the problem. Too much "tooth" for the glue?
Anyways, I'm going to do the final work on cherry that will most likely be sanded to 220. And possibly have 1 coat of Seal-Coat wiped on?

tvman44 I use 3m super 77 adhesive to fasten pattern to wood, after routing I put a little mineral spirits on the pattern and it lifts right off effortlessly, then wipe down with a clean rag and more MS, let dry then spray my black ink on. Works great for me..
