    Usually we really send postcards with a stamp and writing on the back--it's part of the postcard ethos--but occasionally some people have sent small prints in envelopes, particularly for more delicate processes.

    You're really going to print up 30 little carbon prints for this? If that's more than you had planned, you might consider doing the group print exchange (4-6 prints), the blind print exchange (1 print), or the Traveling Portfolio (1 print and you get it back) for the carbons, and just print up postcards for the postcard exchange, much as I'm sure everyone would be delighted to get a carbon print in the mail.

    Sure, I'll make a 8.5x11 neg with 4 images. I have a bunch of the B&S tissue left (I prefer my own tissue for my serious stuff). At that point its just 7 or 8 prints that I can run off in fairly short order.

    Would everyone like a carbon print?

    Since I´ve just defrosted another pack of Ilford post card stock (WHY do we actually use this? It sucks. <g>) and got 1 or 2 packs left in the freezer.... I´m in, once more. :-)
    Tschüss,

    In my case, pure laziness, but I'm getting better at it. Usually the key is using 1/2 to a full grade more contrast than you think you need. It also doesn't hurt for me to do the postcards at the end of a run of more serious prints, so I have a tray of amidol (Michael Smith's formula) handy. The amidol doesn't do enough with MGIV RC to justify mixing it up just for the postcards, but it does boost the blacks a tiny bit, if I happen to have some left over from something else.

    Are Bears Catholics? Does the Pope shi... erm... In the... Woods?... Ah, hang on, might have got a bit confused there...

    Well, yes! My first Azo print was courtesy of Jim Shanesy's postcard print in the last round (now I know what all the Azo fuss is about - a gem!) so, seeing a carbon print close up and personal would be fantastic too.

    Cheers, Bob.

    P.S. Haven't received an email so, count me in for this round please Nige, ta very muchly...

    FYI - someone in the UK just listed a 100 sheet box of the ilford postcard stock for sale for $22 on photo.net, in case anyone's interested.

    As soon as I get definate confirmation as to a date that ilford will again be supplying postcard stock, (hopefully in the next 6 months) I will divy up my stock of postcard paper at cost to those in the exchange. I stock piled 20 boxes, and I still have 19 left.
