    I am looking for an 11 x 14 (maybe 16 x 20) easel. I noticed that the Bessler borderless easels aren't that expensive. Does anyone know if they are adjustable?
    How easy are they to use?

    Edit: I meant to say borderless in the title. Hopefully one of the moderators can fix that.

    Dear Darkroom 317;
    Yes they are adjustable and very simple to use.

    Yes, both those things. Be advised though that they do work better with RC Papers which tend to lie flatter than fiber based stocks. If you want to use this type of easel with fiber based papers, you might want to consider using something like Blu-Tack under the paper to help flatten it out a bit.
