Fitting small aluminium sign to wall without drilling

Can anyone suggest a method to fix an A2 size alu composite panel to a wall without drilling holes. I'd like to avoid the drilling for aesthetics.

Thanks in advance

Depends on weight and will it be short term or long term.
Long term this is goòd but will mark walls when removed

Although for frames and wall signs these are really good and can be removed without marking

If its only because you don't want fixings seen from the front have you thought about bonding Big Head fastenings or something similar to the back of the sign ?
Ups the cost a bit but means you can fix securely & have no visible fastenings showing.

Why not glue a couple of snap fix locators on the back

That was my first thought Vince but that makes it pretty easy for someone to walk away with :lol1: :lol1:
The bighead fasteners are permanent so no chance of that happening.

How about making another smaller sized panel and screwing to the wall with countersunk screws then fit your plate to it with double sided tape
