My method is very basic, so please don't laugh. I use the old wooden contact printing frames, spring-back type. Remove the glass from the contact printing frame and pop in a mat-board cut to the proper shape. Insert the glass on top of the mat board. Place the negative on the glass in the proper position and tape two opposite corners with small pieces of tape. Insert your paper, insert the spring-back, and enjoy printing with borders.
