sequencing gel won't stick to Whatman paper

Are you using Whatmann's 3mm paper? Or a cheaper version from a different
company? The cheaper paper is a little cruder and we've often had problems
transferring the gel to it. Especially if the gel is somewhat dry--we fix
our gels and then siphon off the fixative. When we use Whatmann, no
problem. We still use the cheaper paper but need to leave the gel wetter.
Hope this helps,
