Re: [BKARTS] flattening wet paper

Layering the paper between blotters and cardboard (paper being on the
blotters) then add weight on top. Using a fan at one end and enclosing the
stack with garbage bags with the opening being taped to the fan will create
a simulated drying box. If you don't have or want the fan just make sure you
change the blotters each day so things don't stay damp.
Hope this helps.
