    So if you want to be part of the blind print exchange - round 4, sign up here.

    This time, also post if you are going to the APUG Conference. If you are, I will try to set you up to exchnage prints with others who are also going. This way, you can exchange the print in person at the APUG Conference.

    If you're not, no worries, sign up and I'll take care of that too.

    For those that don't know what the Blind Exchange is, here's a brief explanation:
    Again as in the previous round for every particpant in this round, I will donate another $1 to the American Red Cross for Katrina Relief.

    I hate to belabour this point, but if you haven't honoured your committments in any other exchange, please don't sign up here. The 'deadbeat' rate has increased from 7% to 20% in the last exchange rounds which disappoints me.


    • Sign up period is now until March 15.
    • I will PM you who to send your print to on or about March 16.
    • Deadline to send your print will be May 31. <--Plenty of time to make and send ONE print.
    In fact, as you sign up, just make the print, ready to mail, so you won't be tardy!

    Regards, Art.

    I'm in. Not going to conference. I have only one critic of this and other exchanges. When sending a print it might be better to send unmounted. 2 out 4 prints, including the print exchange, have come on mat board that curled into a S-curve that was not retrievable. So basically the prints went to waste. Which was to bad they would have been worth keeping other wise.

    As a side note if any of the prints I send come in damaged I am willing to replace them if the original is sent back to me.

    I agree. The stiff board easily gets crumpled, an unmounted print can survive incredible abuse even if the packaging is totally trashed.

    Experiment: Take two pieces of cardboard. Put an unmounted print between. Then bend the "package" enough to crack the cardboard. Unpack; examine print.
    Then try the same with a mounted print.

    Which would you rather get in your mailbox?
