    Seal indicates that Seal Colormount is for RC and Archival Mount is for B&W. Can I use Archival mount for color? Any advantages or disadvantages to this?

    I believe that you will find that Colormount is a lower temperature tissue.
    At least my information indicates it as such. I have used Colormount for FB black and white paper for almost twenty years. I have had no problems in using it.

    The higher temperature that Archival Mount requires may melt the color print. I would try a test print first and see what happens.

    Boris,

    This discussion is in the "How good is Seal Color Mount" a few topics below. You might find what you want there.

    I would use two pieces of mat board with the print sandwiched between the two to keep the print off the platen.
