Good way to attach background?

Just bought some black background plastic sheet from Petsmart. But they didn't stock the adhesive for it. Does anyone know what might work to attach it without air bubbles? I guess I could search other pet stores. But if anyone knows of something easier to find that would work, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

You can always go old fashioned and use tape, just make sure to pull it tight.

seaview background adhesive works wonders and doesn't cause the backgrounds to wrinkle over time

I've heard something like a little vegetable oil and a credit card works good. But I painted mine

Clearview is what I've been looking for but none of my LFS carry it. Has anyone else used it before?

I use velcro. That way I can take it off quickly if need be and it doesn't get that "bubble" look
