I second the recommendation to "Guard" the pages.
In some situations, depending on size of sheet and thickness of paper,
you might even want to use a thin cotton muslin. We use an unbleached
cotton muslin from TESTFABRICS and size it with methylcellulose. The
sized fabric is then cut into strips and used as guards.
Good Luck.
