This turned up on adorama's site today. It sounds like the size is slightly off for Ilford postcard paper, but it might be worth trying out and seeing if it fits. I'm not going to since I have a 4x6 speed easel, but for $17, it might be worth a try...

Just so you guys know, I'm currently looking for other easels on ebay and elsewhere, so I'm keeping my eyes peeled for 4x6 speed easels too. If I find any, I'll post the link here. I know my 4x6 easel makes doing the postcards a breeze.

diy - 4 ply matte board taped/glued to a piece of plywood/masonite. bevel cut the sides that hold the paper

They still sell these? I have one that has to be 50 years old.

These were made to match postcard stock offered by Kodak - the old Kodabromide material. They don't fit the standard Ilford postcard stock, but it's a simple matter to cut down paper to fit.

I have one that was my Dad's. Slightly different construction, but was also for the Kodak postcard stock. This one is probably 75-80 years old, as I think he had it when he was in college. Amazing, the longitivity of good things!
