    I need some information for a price list and with all the folks here who participate in the various forms of print exchanges, I figure this is the place to get truly knowledgable answers.

    Approximately how much does it cost you send a packaged 14x17 print domestically in the US? How do you package them?

    Thanks!

    Neal -

    I regularly send 8x10 prints around the US for juried shows. The prints are mounted on 2-ply boards - I put four prints in an ordinary 9x12" envlope (face to face), and then stamp "Do Not Bend" on the outside. The cost is less than $3 for first class postage.

    I also am involved in some print exhanges. These 8x10 prints are unmounted, but they are accompanied by some information sheets. A typical exchange group involves 5-8 people, each of whom can have up to three prints in the package at a time. We try to use USPS flat rate priority mail envelopes - $4.05 to send to any US address.

    Exactly the sort of information I'm looking for.

    Thanks Louie
