    There's something stronger than hot glue that crafters use. I can't remember what it's called.

    Could you Mod Podge it?

    ETA-never mind. I thought you were trying to laminate the wood manually...not glue laminated pieces. Ignore me.

    Can you try scratching up the surface of the laminate before glueing? But I know that may damage your laminated stuff.

    Can you use velcro? That way you can easily take down things and put new posters/etc up.
