Controlling Postcard Wrinkles

Today, I thought I would show you how I manage the tendency of mixed media postcards to buckle and wrinkle as they dry.  I am clamping stacks of postcards in progress between two very stiff sheets of cardboard - cut to size.  I am using the clamps I have been keeping around for years - they are bit rusty from all the fabric processes they have been used for.  They work great for getting and keeping the postcards (made of a variety of materials - most of them recycled mail art - and very unpredictable when exposed to glue, layering, paint, and print.

What a fantastic tip! As a paper crafter I could sure use some big daddies like these.
