    you could use a file to make the negative holder a bit larger. just a bit, it's a precision work.
    The Valoy used to have a slightly larger negative holder.

    Versamask is perfect for printing with black borders. I ordered my Versamask easel the other day from www.versamask.de , so it's still available if anyone is interested.

    Regards,

    If I recall correctly Robert Vonk of Fotohuis used to sell a thing called a Versamask which was a metal easel with very accurate metal masks for 6x4, 5x7 10x8
    Unfortunately only available directly at the manufacturer in Germany only. By buying a metal insert for the mask you can make in two steps a perfect black border (e.g. fixed 2mm) in the mask. Versamask is not really expensive but all frames are laser cutted.

    Otherwise with a 25x37mm carrier from your enlarger you will have a more artistic black line.

    Here an example of the Dunco 67 II 25x37mm glasless carrier:

    My method to print black borders is to enlarge with a Leitz enlarger. I believe their negative carriers all print with borders. The cost of these great small format enlargers is modest when you consider their quality.
