Received my first two cards today.

Beautiful tones in Mick Fagan's Billilla House and I like the compostional effect of the tree on the right.

A great fun card from Ingo Bohn - or is it Ruediger? Very creative and well executed. :D

Mine are in the post this evening.

I forgot to tell you yesterday when I took my cards to the post office she asked me if I wanted cards to be stamped by hand, no machine roller damage or paper strips glued over the front of the image :D . Maybe you can ask your post office where ever you are, to hand stamp your cards.

Thanks Greg

Apologies in advance , I won't be sending mine out for another week or so, I've got a postcard easel on it's way to me. Once it arrives they'll be in the post.

Are most others using bordeless easels?

Regards, Matt.

My main easel for RC paper, is a rectangular piece of chipboard which measures just over 300x400mm or 12x16".

Attached to two sides, are some flat strips of timber sticking up about 6mm. I just push the paper into the corner and fire away.

I have outlined all the paper sizes I use with a ball point pen, not for positioning the paper, just to give me an idea for rough framing after first inserting a negative.

Been using it for 20 odd years and have always meant to make a better one using MDF with a smooth finish, one day I will.

I also have a Jobo 8x10" Varioformat which is excellent, but for whacking RC prints through, nothing beats this except a roll easel.

We do have the month of April to post our postcards, right? So Mattg, you are not late.

That's correct, no need to rush at this point. I won't be printing until next weekend myself so please don't kill yourself trying to cram in a couple of printing sessions when there are still weeks left to print.

Whew! Printed 50 cards last night. I'll try to get them in the mail this week. Received a couple of lovely cards last week and am really looking forward to the rest.

I would totally be down with trying to get someone make some 4x6 speed easels for us. Anybody know of someone who could do the work?

I'm on my way to the darkroom to print my postcards. Should be a fun day!
Just trying to decide what to print will be the most time consuming. Maybe three different ones again!
