I guess that sort of narrows down the surprise factor, eh? Mine will be mounted and matted this weekend and in the mail on Monday. So let it be written, so it shall be done...

Thank you Craig. I'm glad you like it! I started to worry it might have gotten lost in the mail. I've got the feeling
that unless you mail things Express or Priority, USPS is taking all the time in the world to deliver the print. :blink:


Hello all,

My print went in the mail today (late as always).

Received a beautiful big print from Eugene Anikin a little while ago. Very nice print of an old spy plane engine. Thanks Eugene.

Again, sorry for being late.

It's Monday and I just returned from the Post Office. Shipping cost was $22.30 and it's finally on its way.

My status is now SENT, but NOT RECEIVED.

Apologies for all of the delays this round...

Yeah, shipping these days can get through the roof. I've been wondering if we should give participants an option whether to mail their print on the same continent, or world-wide. At least whenever it is possible. I know I like receiving prints from as far away as possible, but these shipping costs might keep some people from participating. Suggestions?

We are getting close to the sign up time for the next exchange. However, my work load these days is going through the roof. I am looking for a volunteer to take over the reigns of the Blind Print Exchange. Any volunteers? I will help as much as I can, of course. On the job training is offered with benefits. I'm not totally sure what the benefits are, but you can figure it out on your own :laugh:

Yes it is.

But to be fair I have chosen to dry mount and custom cut a matte and backboard for all of my submissions. I then send these in oversized flat boxes with large amounts of padding. This approach does drive up the cost, mostly because of the box size.

I received a remarkable photograph from Laurent while I was at Photostock. Thank you, Laurent, for such a lovely photo. It was worth the wait.

I received Ken's print of raindrops on a window yesterday. It has caught the mood of rainy weather perfectly. I really appreciate it.

Thanks.

Thanks, Mike! (I understand why I did not see your comment, as I lokked in the "small print exchange" forum)

Did I post my comment in the wrong forum? Crikey -- just like me, sorry about that! Fortunately the photo is still a keeper regardless! :)
