Sticking plastic to MDF Question

Hi. I’m approaching completion of my second from-scratch arcade stick. So far I have made a lot of vast improvements over my previous involving size, build, etc. One thing I don’t know how to do properly is stick laminated paper to my MDF panel. On my old mayflash I used Spray glue and sand paper to stick artwork to plastic, which works fine. But on my previous project I tried to use the same technique sticking mdf to plastic and It started peeling extremely quickly. Can anyone Give some advice on how to go about doing this?
