    So there IS a Santa after all!

    Flattening the things is one of the major factors dissuading people from using fibre. People can stand the long wash times, but curly prints are a real pain. I have a big, heavy and awkward Ademco dry-mount press I hardly ever use for anything but flattening - it would be nice to not have to bother...

    Nice one Ilford!

    Cheers, Bob.

    Wow. This is a godsend. Although the high humidity where I live ameliorates the curling problem, this would probably make it much easier.

    Thanks Ilford (and Simon)!

    That is great news, Simon!

    'hka' is right though, it would be good if we could see from the boxes whether it is the new flat paper.

    Long may Ilford live! (and I will certainly support you!)

    How flat is flat? Using a blotter stack press all the waves
    and undulations can be removed. The print is left only a little
    concave towards the emulsion. Burk & James used to manufacture
    a commercial forced air version. A past source of print paper
    recommended the stack method for FLAT prints.

    Many years ago I used Kodak's Blotter Roll for drying many
    8x10s. The blotter roll had just that, a length of blotter paper
    within a length of corrugated board. Blotter stacks without
    corrugated board are worthless IMO.

    I've incorporated hydrophobic sheeting within my stack
    dryer. The interleaving of board, sheeting and prints builds
    the stack which must be weighted at top. A special corrugated
    board is used; A flute ventilation grade. It is water resistant
    and can be used again and again.

    From scratch $15 to $20 will cover costs on a stack good
    for a score of 8x10s. With or with out prints the stack
    weighs nearly nothing and can be stowed easily out
    of the way. Time? Allow two or three days. Dan

    Hello Simon,
    I have tons of Tmax 100 film but am impressed that your company is making these efforts. I have just ordered a couple boxes of Delta 100 5x4. How about some 5x7?? Bring on the 5x4 3200!!..Evan Clarke

    That's great Simon, now if only the MG paper could work at grade 4 1/2 to 5 without bad coating mottle I'd be thrilled.
