    Vacuum or CPF for 14x17, 16x20?

    Is a CPF good enough or does one need a vacuum frame for 14x17, 16x20?
    Please share experience...thanks!

    A CPF will do the job, but a vacuum frame is so much quicker to use.

    My contact printing, is just two pieces of 10mm glass, with some masking tape to make a hinge. The weight of the glass is enough to hold everything down. Just make sure to have one sheet cut longer, 2-3cm. This will give you a place to separate the sandwich.

    I like the contact I get using my vacuum frame for my 8x20 prints. Just my .02.
