    I'm a fan of the HOP books. I think they're perfect for their use. But I do suggest swapping the sleeves often to keep them tight looking.

    Don't fret about having 2 at home though: nobody's go out as often as they want. These days you're better off dumping the money into web stuff anyway...I mean, the last two mags that I worked with, and they're relatively large magazines, asked me to shoot after seeing my blog. My BLOG. Neither had even seen my regular site when I asked; one asked to see my book; the other didn't seem to care.

    That is inexpensive. I think I payed 3+ times that. And the place I ordered from messed up my order to boot. Thanks for the tip for future reference.

    A lot of my magazine work has been European, so I get those just from my site. I want to overhaul the print book, though, since I've started making wet prints again. Someone needs to see them besides me! Plus, I want to match the branding to my site design, for that extra little touch. Anyway, this is getting off topic....

    Two more items: www.neschen.com will
    take you to the source of the material.
    Also Gudy 831 may be of interest. It
    is more aggressive and tacky both
    sides.

    That does sound good, a foot x 33, $26.
    I see that Neschen is associated with
    Seal. Dan

    cbphoto, off topic, but it's a much much more interesting discussion than mounting adhesives.

    Dan, the difference in "which for what?" btwn 831 and 870 was not clear, even when I called and asked sellers. Nothing really suggests that 831 is a stronger adhesive, but more that it's a stronger material in regards to weight, thickness, bending, etc - from what I could tell. That and it has carrier on both sides of the film. It'd prob be easier to work with and handle if you were doing large prints and using a cold press roller set up.

    I'm a little surprised more people don't seem to be using this stuff. To me it seems like a nice solution.

    Gudy 870 Adhesive Transfer Rolls

    Available from Talas and other conservator supply outlets.
    Gudy 870 has passed the PAT test; the photograph activity
    test.

    Lack of familiarity with the material is likely the reason for
    it's little use by the silver gelatin community. Gudy 870 has
    been around for some time. I've the impression other
    crafts more so use it.

    Adhesive methods which use heat just don't appeal to me.
    Heat and great LE or 'archival', in my mind, contradict.
    I doubt any hot sheet adhesive betters the cold Gudy
    870 sheet adhesive at passing the PAT.

    For myself I don't need a cumbersom to stow heavy
    press to deal with. Not to mention the $$$. Dan

    Sounds good. Will the Gudy hold down a fiber print that is trying to curl back up?

    Also, I just noticed that Talas is in my neighborhood. Very cool.

    Are these cold adhesives undoable, in case the mount board becomes contaminated for some reason?
