I bind the gel to one of the glass plates, making for easier handling, but
meaning a regular gel dryer can't be used.  I now put the plate in an oven
for an hour at about 100 deg C.  Before we got a large oven I used to put
the gel under a group of hair dryers for a couple of hours.  It was noisy
and not as fast as an oven, but it works.  I would think this would also
work for a gel transfered to paper. 
The opinions stated are mine, not those of NCTR or its sponsoring organizations.
