If you are not worried about holes nails or screws otherwise double face tape, remember it's pressure sensitive so you need to press it together for a second to make it hold.

Pin nail or double sided 'carpet' tape....

Depends on the size.....

Can't stand the cleanup with double-stick tape, or rubber cement. Now I drill pilot holes in my templates, and use thin nails to tack them down.

I use wide double sided carpet tape which does leave a bit of residue when I take it off but because the time is short I find the glue residue balls up and slides off with minimal effort.

40mm 'Tenacious Tape' brand carpet tape. Don't be shy with it, it comes off the timber easier than the template (I use 6mm clear acrylic).

Never with a temporary adhesive (psa) or tape.
Always with clamps (toggles or C), crowders, vacuum, fences and stops.

Double sided tape for wood turning. Strong, and I have had no problem with residue after. It`s made for this purpose.

if it's an often used template ... take the effort to set it up to be vacuum clamped in place...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I use commercial hot melt glue. To remove spray with methyl hydrate (wood alcohol) and the glue automatically releases. The key is commercial hot melt, not the hooby kind. The first time that I was introduced to this method I scoffed at it being possible. Works fantastic!
