    You can also buy a double-sided tape that is non-permanent. This is what I use if the paper has a permanent case of the "curlies"!

    I second the recommendation to use a Spray Adhesive. But I would recommend to use a professional one like those used in the graphics industry. They have higher archival standards than hobbyist products.

    "Archival" We're on the easel with this one. You're
    thinking ahead. I did some process work some years
    ago. The camera had a "sticky back" for holding
    the film. Dan

    Well, there might be some residues left after processing. If you are keen on archival processing, you should take this into account.

    Just out curiosity, I’ve read about vacuum easels, where the paper is held flat by suction, though I have never seen one. They sound like a nice concept. Anyone have experience with one of these?

    I use a vacuum easel and like it a lot. Although noisy it does a good job. The only trouble I have is with out of date fiber base paper that I keep referigerated. Even with referigeration the paper curls to the point that I need to use a four bladed easel.

    Just a thought

    I wonder if you taped or glued a piece of photo paper to your easel if when you inserted the piece that you are printing if it might not hold your paper flat by having raised it.

    My second post this thread mentions a spring bed easel.
    Very quick and sure it was.
    With high quality optics, shooting and enlarging, and a well
    aligned enlarger it would do justice. I've heard only good reports
    using a sticky easel. A few dollors and some time infested will tell.

    I've a Saunders four blade. The paper CURLS up from a slot
    in the base and the blades do not hold paper flat. Typical of
    any of the four blades on the market. Dan
