Hello, I want to put a design on my board and then glue my text on top. I don't know if I should paint the design or cut out nice paper and glue the design on. I'm worried that the design will wrinkle because it will be along the folds of the side panels. It's a big design. Has anyone painted their board before? Does it work, what paint did you use? If you glued a design, what did you do about the side panels when it was folded? Thanks. PS hurry, my board is due next week!!!! :D

Hi Joshua,

Two quick recommendations: if you glue a design on, you could cut the design where the folds are, so that it doesn't wrinkle when you fold it. Or, if you paint it on, regular acrylic paints would probably work fine. They're cheap and available at any arts and crafts store (and probably at places like wal-mart too).
