    I dry most prints 11x14 and smaller face down on a home made drying screen (made of wood and fiberglass house screen). Bigger than 11x14 I usually hang from a line by clothes pins. I mostly use glossy FB, which isn't really that glossy, but I've used the glossy RC occasionally, and had no problems with my normal procedures.

    When using a drying machine make sure it's only been used with well washed prints. One print with some fixer still on it can contaminate the machine, and then contaminate every print that goes into it.
