Hello

Looking for some good corner weights for flattening / showing rolled prints. I’ve seen people with nice beanbag ones. Anyone with some recommendations and/or reviews, comments?
TIA

Never buy anything that is made with an organic filler, such as rice, as it can rot and/or attract pests. You also wouldn't want anything with sand or other abrasive material in them. Iwish is a member here that used to make bags and would even customize them for you if you send her images. Her store is down now but you might be able to pm her to buy a set. Baroque also sells leather poster weights. I like both kinds, though the leather are a little heavier.
