My first attempt shows visible seams from across the room, my second, you have to be within a few feet and looking for them. Since then, I've learned that I should be pre-heating my prints before seaming, so perhaps my third attempt will be better. I'm using an old Seal 150 I got used for $100.>> +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++= So did you finally butt the edges or do you overlap? I have found if you use "carpet cutter trick "to fist overlap then cut you can get a perfect butt joint. I plan to laminate with glossy film this can help to hide the seam. What thickness mounting tissue did you use? I reall would like the 7000 but for now I can try to design a boarder at the seam this really help to hide the seam as it is on a constant color area! Have you seamed photo's yet? Thanks for the tips TomCat - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short. Use accurate subject lines. http://www.leben.com/lists for instructions.
