    Hmmm... !!!

    I have had *no* problems with rust. Puzzling. Even the "yard sale" frames I've picked up have not been rusty.

    I've gone both ways, "springy thing" and "pack it in with mat board" .. and I've settled on "springy things". Just don't forget to remove them if you disassemble the frame ... that is a SURE way to break the glass. Yes, glass. I once fell prey to the lure of acrylic... nearly twice the price of glass and scratches like crazy!

    How do you mount (spray-dry, or ?) your photographs - or do you "hinge"? If found the greatest culprit in "wrinkling" prints was the "moisten with water" hinging tape. Absolutely awful. I once had to do an all-nighter to re-do a bunch of exhibition prints done with this stuff. They, very rapidly, assumed the appearance of well-done bacon.

    If I hinge, I will use the stuff with peel-off backing (self adhesive).
    Carpe erratum!!

    [quote="Aggie"]Lee let me get hold of one of the prof. at the college. Benica has the largest wholesaler of mat board (cresent is one of them ) and frames in the bay area.

    Aggie,

    I think you may have confused me with some other one. I use Westminister (from Light Impressions) and metal frames. I cut my own matts and use 4 ply....

    on another matter, I am studying your postcard submissions and will let you know what I think shortly. Have you gotten the cowboy yet?
