I was going to attempt to produce some grade A comb this season (Maybe county fair entry)and had a few questions on super stacking order and if it affects comb quality.

Does it make any difference or does quality differ when a super set up for comb production is 1st on the hive, second on top of a super set up for honey, two above the honey only supers etc.? Or is it better advised to do comb production exclusively on any single hive?

I am going for appearance as much as anything thing, does the order of stacking affect capping type (wet vs. dry)? Can dry capping be “encouraged”?

My intent is to cut comb from foundation frames set up for that purpose vs. using molded frames set up specifically for round or square shaped comb production, curious if anyone has tried both and had an opinion as to what gave better quality final product?
