Black lines around 3.25x4.25 image transfers : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread

I don't know if this is normal for 3.25 x 4.25 size image transfers, but I get black lines around 3 edges, with the fourth being the side with the brown gel. It takes away from how I envision it to look. I can't see anything wrong with my machine. It's a Daylab II. I've seen some transfers that other people have done that have a soft, non-existent edge almost, no black lines, and I want my work to look more like this. Any suggestions?

I've also had this problem. I've found it helps to see which way you are positioning the slide in the slide holder.. One side of the slide holder overlaps the edges of the slide. Also, you need to very carefully position the slide holder in the unit. I find this very difficult to do in the Daylab 35mm. I don't have much experience with the Daylab II.
