Best way to place background on back of tank?

I got some black background to put on the back of my 60 gallon. I assumed it had some peel and stick properties to it, but that is not the case. I guess I could use scotch tape. What have you done???

Nope, lather it with vegetable oil and then lay it on. Squeeze out the air bubbles and voila!
