John: The traditional method is dry mounting, but you really need a dry mount press to do it right. I have had good success using a spray adhesive from Scotch called "Super 77". I have never had a print come loose when mounting on mat board, but I have had one come loose when I mounted it on foam core. That was the only one out of many, and I may not have used enough adhesive. The adhesive comes in two kinds, removable and non removable. Use the kind that is non removable. Spray the back of the print, let it set for about 15-to-30 seconds, and put the print in place and roll it with a rubber roller. Make sure the print is in the right place before you put it on the board, because it is impossible to remove without ruining the print. I do outdoor art festivals with my prints, and that adhesive holds in hot sun, freezing rain, you name it. There is also spray adhesive made especially for art work, but I have not had any problems with Super 77 in several years of using it. You can get it at homecenters and craft shops. It is usually cheaper at home centers, about seven or eight dollars for a large can that will do a lot of prints.
Hope this helps,
