My prints are on their way!

They have to cross the border, so Lori, Randy and Denis, you need to be patient :).

For the first time, I used small mailing tubes with caps. They are simply rolled up and inserted in the tubes.

Matt

Might try the tube route next time. I sent my prints in stiff envelopes sandwiched between illustration board, plus they were 11x14. Between the size and the weight it cost almost 10 usd each to ship. I choose priority since it was only a dollar more than parcel post. To contrast I receive 2 prints including a 16x20 in a mailing tube and the postage was under 3 usd. The mailing tube seemed quite robust.

I got mine out today. Hope they make it okay. Couldn't decide which prints I wanted to send but hope everyone likes them. I packed in cardboard envelopes with a piece of foam board. I always have foam board around that have been used in boards for demonstrations and projects. They are not nice enough to use anymore but they work great to add some bulk to shipping envelopes!

Lacking motivation I guess. Still yet to print. Gimme a short bit and I'll be underway.

If only we could discover these things the first round :D

Finally an evening to sit down and relax... I have been a little remiss in acknowledging that I have received prints from Charles and Roger (they arrived safe and sound), a nice forest scene with beautiful light from Charles and a photo of a pottery studio/factory from Roger. Roger's makes me wish I had been into photography when I worked in all those old New England factories.

My prints will be in the mail early next week.

I mixed the toner a long time ago. I'm not sure what it was! I think it was selenium? or sepia? Whatever it was it was one of the kodak packages with the bleach and toner.

I've been away for a bit, but I've received: Travis' picture from Shenandoah National Park - the matte surface really works for the subject matter; and Amanda's night shot of shipyard buildings which has very interesting tones/toning. Mine are sent. I went the mailing tube route as I recently had the opportunity to print from 6x17 panorama negatives and couldn't find appropriate envelopes for the resulting long skinny prints.

best,

Tim

Received Tim's picture in the mail yesterday. Really like the panoramic print--very nicely done. Thanks!

I seemed to have survived this crazy month of February. I just hope March isn't as insane. Prints are in the mail.

I've been away for a while, too. Tim, I got your print, yeah I can see why you chose the tube mailer. I like the print very much, panoramic prints always seem to look great to me. Thanks!

Hi Lori, your prints arrived yesterday, and I picked them up from the post office today.

I like them both, but if I have to choose a favourite, it would be the first one (the one you toned).

Thanks again.

Be advised. I have now printed. I will now send. Wow, that was the longest didn't feel like it streak I have ever experienced. Of course, eight hour sessions don't serve to be encouraging either. Still have postcards to do. Glad I signed up for only 15 this time 'round.

I just received Matt Kings Photo in the mail. It is awesome! I really love the square format. I hope to be able to print 1/2 as good as some of you someday! It arrived perfect in the mailing tube and is flattening between some books as I type! I can't wait to get my living room done so I can hang the wonderful prints that I have received! Thanks so much Matt. I love it.

Really glad you like it

Oh, and don't sell yourself short on your own printing!

MattKing print arrived Thursday and opened Friday

read the notice, looked at the print, then put print under 90m tin of polypan F and N8008s

darkroom is still too cold to print much more than a quick test, 50* f :(

hoping for better conditions during spring break

OK, I'm complete. I just received the final print from my group. A very nice print from papagene.

Chris, received today, thanks much! It's a double bonus, since not only were you nice enough to send two prints, but I'd never seen what the Oriental Seagull paper looks and feels like. I like it! Love the shot of the 'Track Dryer' print, and my girlfriend loves the marsh (I like it, too :) )

Thanks again!
Paul

I'm glad you liked them, Paul. Sorry for the econo-shipping. It was that or July. I'm glad they made the trip intact.
