print washers : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I've been getting tired of washing prints in trays of late and wondered on what are the best archival print washers around out there.I do 5x7 to 20x24 and there a washer that will do all the size prints or is it best to get two... a 8x10 model and a 20x24" one? And what about a 16x20 model and curl the edges of a 20x24" print to fit? I've seen the Versalab web looks good it? Any advice will be much appreaciated! Thank you, and Happy New Year!

I have the versalab model 16x20. I'm happy with it. They make an adapter for 20x24 but I haven't used one. Versalab is a real value for the money.

I think my Eco-Wash 16x20 is just great. It uses very little water which I recycle into the plants outside. I have not tried folding over a 20x24" but apparently it can be done. They do make a 20x24" model. In my 16x20 I wash all sizes and I have no complaints and it seems to be well built.

I have the 11 x 14 Versalab and have been very happy with it. It does, however, take up a lot of room.
