    Ditto the comment on adhesive foam board - it's probably my issue, but I gave up using it due to bubbled prints. The tissue, on the other hand, has never failed me. Well, once but only because I used this plastic-like version that got on my print. Good old Bienfang BufferMount has been my go to for fiber prints. It's getting expensive though and a little hard to find.

    Oh for Crissakes, not this again. People dry mount. Some, though perhaps not you, do it well. Get over it.

    B&H has Seal/Bienfang dry mount tissue for under 30 cents a sheet (8x10). The Dry Lam brand is more like 22 cents. That's got to be cheaper than sticky adhesive (not to mention easier to use if you have a heat press). I love using dry mount tissue.

    There are many great threads on dry mounting et al - I particularly like:

    ...so as not to open up a new can of worms. Off to press some shirts, then some photos, and maybe make a pancake or two.

    Beinfang Color Mount tissue is just fine for fb paper as well as rc. It's a low temperature tissue that just needs to be pressed after heating. i use a large paint roller with a soft nappy texture, and the prints lie flat and stay flat. There's nothing old fashioned about it. And, as nexus writes above, a hobby store carries inexpensive and perfectly useable tacking irons for a fraction of the price of dedicated photo mounting ones.
