so true.  Long time back I had a machine shop create a 4x6 hole in an
8x10 piece of heavy black plastic.  And had them cut a piece to exactly
fit the hole.  So when printing my portfolio, I'd lay down the bigger
piece, frame the image on the base board, tip it up, slide paper under
it, drop it down and expose the paper.  Then I'd drop the center piece
in, remove the outer piece and turn on the lights for a second.  worked
like a charm.  Now computers and printers work like a charm, except the
price of ink, of course, costs as much or more as premium paper does.
