On a forum on another photo site, there was a discussion of print flattening. One of the posters used a method that I hadn't heard of before. He would take a washed print, squeegee off the surface water, and then tape the print to a flat surface using a water-activated tape. Although he would then have to trim the edges of the print (the tape could not be removed), he claimed to achieve perfectly flat prints.
In addition, he claimed that print drydown was due solely to shrinkage of the emulsion during drying, and that this method eliminated any change in the print during drying.
Anyone have any experience with/thoughts about this method? I'm showing at an art show in a couple of months, and am trying to come up with the best methods for print flattening and presentation. While I have access to a dry mount press, I've not been convinced that this is the best route.
