One possibility that would solve the storage problem and look professional
with less cost might be to purchase and install the cork strips that are
available.  These are about 1" wide and also have several clips on
them.  They can be used with thumb tacks or by hanging things from the
clips.  When not in use for posters, they stay on the walls and can be
used for hanging pictures or just form a strip around the wall.  We use
them in our Learning Center for hanging student project reports and
presentation posters.
