    Hi there

    May sounds quite stupid but I ask anyway :) I have some acoustic foam panels for a while. I was waiting to change the design of my room before placing. I don't want to hook them up directly to the walls, so I think to stick them on some cartboards then hang them on the walls but maybe there's a better way to do it?

    cartboard? I've seen some that are fixed on wheels/stands that I reckon you'd be ok with. I've just used picture hooks and string to hang mine up which I don't find overly permanent.

    Are you talking about that foam stuff like Auralex?

    I used that stuff for a while a decade ago. Anyways, I just used tiny little nails. Smallest I could find that where long enough to stick to the wall. Right through the foam. The little tiny holes where hardly noticeable after I took them down and covered easy with a coat of paint. The foam is light enough to use tiny nails. I like your cardboard idea better though. I was lazy. They don't work that well anyways.

    If it's Auralex, use a staple gun

    I bought some really thick posterboard.
    Super glued old CDs to the back of the auralex, then duct taped them to the posterboard.

    I was able to screw some hangers on the side, get some wire, and now it's like a picture frame.

    3M double sided tape strips work well and come off with ease. They hold up to 16 lbs.
