Re: [BKARTS] polaroid tranfers query

Claire, have you been able to solve the problem here? Though it is an
old question, have you considered sizing the paper first?

Subject: [BKARTS] polaroid tranfers query

I am working on a book at present where the illustrations are going to
be Polaroid transfers, directly onto the text page. We have had some
trouble with the cyan colour staining through the paper to the back. It
does not happen with every print, some are completely clean on the back,
but some have blue staining, particularly on the dark areas. We have not
been able to work out what the causes are and how we can minimise the
problem. Has anyone else experimented with this method and have any
