My prints are flaking at the edge. What is happening?

My prints are flaking at the edge. What is happening?

 

We get questions periodically that concern the flaking of emulsion on prints. This can be caused by excessive heat from the archival wash or it is an issue with the batch of paper you purchased. The flaking issue can be tested by replicating your specific darkroom procedure by processing two different brands of paper and placing them side-by-side. If it happens to one and not the other then you have an emulsion issue with that brand of paper. If both brands of paper flake then please contact us immediately so we can assist you with your issue.
