    anyone know of an awesome website for different or out of the ordinary printing tips? Or interesting techniques?

    just looking to do something out of the ordinary.

    suggestions are welcomed as well.

    What did you have in mind? There are a few folks here with plenty of darkroom experience who might be able to offer up something, if you have an idea of what you are trying to accomplish. :)

    The only exact thing i've had in mind on this subject was the printing of borders. With an easel you can easily have a typical even white border, but i was wondering if there was a way to print different borders (i.e. a keyline border, or a rough looking border?

    of course i left it general so perhaps people could give me all kinds of printing suggestions.

    Yeah, I just bought a second one so I can do it too. (I used that one at a rental place.)

    I used to use black card. You can put it on top of the paper in the easel.
    It's cheaper and easier to work with.
