Do you have any more information about the type of "papers" and the wall itself? –  allnightgrocery Jun 4 '11 at 21:51
    
Oh yes, sorry for missing necessary information. wall has wall-paper on it and papers are simple A4 papers. I want to choose some of them I like more and print them out. –  Gigili Jun 4 '11 at 22:05

  • Framing them would be one obvious suggestion.
  • get a wire curtain hanger from Ikea, then use clothes pins/alligator clips to hang your prints from
  • check your office store for A4 clear sleeves you'd normally find in a binder. Think of a creative way to hang them
  • cork board strip
  • attach a strip of metal to the wall from your big box hardware store and use magnets to attach your drawings

How to frame them? and I didn't get the second one. other suggestions would not work here. –  Gigili Jun 4 '11 at 22:32
    
You could take them to a frame shop, or buy your own frames and mattes, or buy prematted frames at Target/Walmart/etc, or consider poster frames...there's lots of options. The second suggestion is something like this: 3.bp.blogspot.com/_7RWnKewFsi8/TU2Wvlq84HI/AAAAAAAAAGo/… –  DA01 Jun 5 '11 at 0:33
    
Thanks a lot, great suggestions. –  Gigili Jun 5 '11 at 11:31
    
+1 for alligator clips. Independent art galleries are doing this more and more, so you know it's trendy! Just make sure to find a kind of clip that won't damage your paper. Also helps if the paper you're hanging is thicker, like card stock. You could always mount a sheet of paper on card stock too for a cheap matte look. –  JavadocMD Jun 6 '11 at 18:32

This post describes a method of hanging fabric on a wall with spray starch. The same technique may work with paper. The benifit is easy removal without damaging the existing wall.
