    a glass carrier is going to need some sort of masking paper.

    with non-glass carrier, it is just a matter of filing out the edges, carefully of course and not too deep

    I am afraid of paper hairs on edges, where should I place the paper in the middle or under the glass carrier ?

    I get this when contact printing 4x5 negatives using a rough cut cardboard frame that's slightly larger than my negative, but masks the rest of the 5x7 paper. There's a few examples on my flickr page. I've not attempted this with an enlarger yet but hope to soon.
