    So, some corrugated board, $3.00 of interfacing and you've
    all thats needed for dry and flat in one move. Allow for
    several days to dry. A slow, gentile dry. Dan
    So, if I have 15 prints to dry, I'll need a piece of cardboard for the top of the stack, the bottom of the stack, and between each print/seperator pile? 16 cardboards total?

    Or, by the description, I should stack more than one print/seperator pile beween two cardboards?

    I don't usually use separators fwiw, I use a large screen, (or large piece of cardboard when I was doing it that way) and don't stack the prints. There are lots of ways to do it, and varying methods to flatten. You might want to check out the sticky thread on getting fiber prints flat, it has lots of information you may find useful.

    That's right, double up twixt the CORRUGATED boards.
    On bottom a board then separator, prints, separator,
    prints, separator, board; arriving, it may be said
    at a new bottom. And so the stack is built.

    Not for ever one. I usually quick dry on a screen. When
    there are enough prints I re-wet, sponge dry, and build
    the stack. Off course I could take prints fresh out of
    the wash, sponge dry and stack. I do few prints in
    any one session so let them accumulate.

    Print emulsions should face each other through the
    separator. For ripple free print edges the prints should
    be about 2 inches within the open flute edges of the
    CORRUGATED board. So, the maximum 20 inch
    wide separator material will do up to 16 x ?

    Two 8x10s EACH layer length wise will need a stack
    12x22. Width wise, 14x18. It's how you cut it. Take
    note of the open flutes; more margin. Dan
