Subject: [Leica] Re: OT: Mounting FB prints

I always flatten my prints before mounting them. I sandwich them between
several layers of kraft paper and put them in the hot press for a minute or
two. The resulting print may have a bit of curl (like it is trying to roll
into a cylinder) but no wavy edges.

If the edges are not stuck down when mounting you may need a little higher
heat setting or a little longer under pressure.
