Is it possible to flash a c-print ever so slightly to create some differentiation in tonality between a white in the frame of the image and the white of the base of the paper? Is it possible to get a grey tone?

Please advise or let me know if you don't understand the question.

If you flash the entire print, it is anybodys guess what will happen to the picture besides lowering contrast and changing color balance in the highlights.

I would build a fixture to expose just two edges at at time, repeat the operation twice. This was the traditional way to get black borders on monochrome prints.
