    If I did not have a VGC exactly like this, I would buy one new

    D&K 210M Commercial Dry Mounting Press - 18.5 x 23"

    IMO, properly done dry mounting with high quality materials remains proven good for longevity and print display. While some archival museum folks frown on dry mounted prints, they have proven to be very stable, durable and appears to aid in print longevity. The prints that were dry mounted in the 80's look much the same today as they did when initially dry mounted.

    Highly suggest to spend the $ for a working dry mount press, spend the $ needed for the proper dry mounting supplies then learn how to dry mount. In the long run, this will prove to be the correct choice instead of seeking lower cost solution that could be far more costly with the passage of time.

    Rice starch working good on FB and RC papers. Not difficult gluing process and preparation of the glue.

    The Seal sized 201 dry mount press is a good way to go. I had one for years, and they last for years. There are ways to mount up to 16x20 or larger prints on even larger sized matte boards through multiple pressings.

    A few years ago, that sold for about $200 each. Not sure what they are not, but it's probably somewhat less.
