    Postcard Exchange - Round 4

    Round 4 of the postcard exchange is calling for participants. Since I was late last round, I thought I'd get in early this time

    Current (and new) members will been emailed so no need to reply here. Anyone else with an interest, read on...

    We now have 'rounds' of postcards where everyone on the list sends everyone else a postcard during the 'print and post' month which occurs each 3mths (4 times a year). There are currently approximately 20 members. The postcards are predominately B&W prints but there have been alternative processes, but anythings welcome.

    The upcoming schedule is :

    Round 4
    August : Sign On
    September : Print and Post
    October : Rest period

    Rouind 5
    November :Sign On
    December : Print and Post
    January : R&R (from Xmas!)

    If you're interested, email ( nigel@apug.org ) or PM your full name, address, APUG name and email I can contact you at (I send out the mailing list)

    Cheers!

    That would depend on your own country's postal service. Here in Australia, it's pretty close to a 5 x 7 (inch), which is quite large. It's only the country of origin that matters with respect to size.

    I'll pass this one too - I still haven't sent the cards for round 2!

    I must learn to do all printing in winter, and print enough to last through summer.

    FYI, I just paid a quick visit to the US Postal Service web site. If we send 5X7s instead of postcards, the postage will be 37 cents as opposed to 23 if sent to a US address. For overseas, it looks like the difference in postage will also be small. A postcard is not smaller than 3.5"X5" and no larger than 4.25X6. I hope that this helps.

    I think they're bringing the postcard stock back. In any case, I've got enough for two more rounds in the fridge. Eventually, I'll start printing them 4-up on 8x10" and cutting them down.

    What are the guidelines? Are actually taking postcards, ie stamp and address on the back? Or postcard size prints mailed in a envelope. I'd be interested in sending out some 4x5 carbons, but they are too delicate to send uprotected.
