How do you mount your prints ?

I used a domestic iron with Adamski dry mount sheets. At the time a heat controlled iron with a rectangular base (similar to a domestic iron) was available as a alternative to a dry mount press.

However, this was nearly 40 years ago!

Yuo could try Hermafix from Speed Graphic. Never tried it myself though.

Thanks, guys, for all your comments - very much appreciated.

I have reservations about using a domestic iron on the print - I can imagine ending up with chemicals on the iron and getting into all sorts of strife ! Looks like the best solution might be to have a pot of cow gum on the table while I apply acid-free tape to one edge of the print.

Thanks again

My local framer charges me 50p a go to dry mount...I buy the sheets he presses. Cheap as chips and less hassle.

Use a tea cloth between the picture and the iron!

I use two tissue T-hinges at the top of the print to mount onto the board and then linen tape to hinge the matt. It's not very robust but works well in a frame with th eabsolute minimum of adhesives.
