    Hi Everybody,

    This might sound like a daft question... But what is the best way to separate the release liner / carrier paper on a double sided adhesive mount film !


    Our 1st attempt at mounting a print to a board today, looked amateur at best !

    It took 2 of us about 5 minutes to pick at the edge of the double sided mount film, searching for an edge to peel.
    One of us at each edge, struggling to release the release paper !

    The gridded paper wasn't too bad, but the thin clear carrier release on the other side was a nightmare to separate.

    so there we were , print, board and large rolls roller type applicator , looking useless !

    is there an easy way to separate these films from their carrier liners?
    or is it always a chore ?

    really appreciate ANY advice !
    especially from you veterans :)

    thanks in advance

    kind regards

    Jack
