Comments about Premier Premier 11x14 Adjustable Easel:

This easel is adjustable up to 11x14. I mostly make 8x10 b&w with a 1/4 in. border. the border can be adjusted to 3 sizes, 1/4,1/2,3/4. The problem is with the placement of the paper. the paper is placed under the ruled guides and held in place with a clip. It is awkward to place the paper under the clip while holding up the ruled guides. Misplacement frequently happens and it wastes paper because the borders are incorrect.

Comments about Premier Premier 11x14 Adjustable Easel:

I was afraid that since it was $50-$100 less than any other 11x14 easel I could find that it would be cheaply made.

In fact, it's perfect for me. It holds the paper firmly and and it does what I need it to do.

I wish my enlarger base were bigger since I had to ghetto-struct* a larger length for it to allow maximum print size.

It's not as heavy as I would expect, which may or may not turn out to be a good thing. When moving the adjustable blades, you can feel some sticking, so it's not the smoothest easel to operate.

*Ghetto-struct: (verb) to build or form by putting together parts by unconventional and usually much cheaper means than the norm.
