easel for Ilford postcard paper

greenspun.com : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Printing & Finishing : One Thread

I bought some Ilford Multigrade IV RC Portfolio postcard paper (3 7/8" x 5 7/8") and want to get an easel to match it. My photo store checked re a Speed-Ez-El and said one is not available. Any suggestions?

I finally resorted to a couple of strips of flexible magnetic material on the base of a regular easel. I make the print borderless.

I intern at a studio downtown and instead of buying easels he just cuts a matte board and lines it with double sided tape and put the paper down. Works great! I definatly suggest that.

Print with a border? I have used these postcards for a while, with a border and sepia toned they have a nice retro look to them. I think borderless postcards look... well, like a postcard off the rack... t

I used thick black paper to make a double mask, so I could easily create a white border, with or without a thin black line around the image. I never want different formats on this paper size, so an easel is superfluous.
