I'll send a PM once I decide how many cards I can reasonably make depending on whether or not they are going to be all the same or all different images.
    Wrench - Most people seem to make multiple copies of one image. Some choose a few images, so not everyone gets the same one. One person in this last exchange sent photograms, and they were all unique. It's up to you.

    No Adrian, if spelled without German umlauts, then Ruediger is just OK. The correct spelling would be Rüdiger, but everyone without a German keyboard layout would have a hard time typing it. But Rudiger is also OK for me. I think the English pronunciation of Rudiger better matches the German pronunciation of Rüdiger.

    So here is the list of the first 17 participants:

    Adrian D (20)
    Black Dog (MAX)
    crispinuk (50)
    gordrob (30)
    hal9000 (25)
    johnnywalker (30)
    jst (15)
    kraker (30)
    KWhitmore (30)
    Mark Fisher (MAX)
    OMU (10)
    Peter Markowski (30)
    rossawilson1 (24)
    rst (MAX)
    rwyoung (25)
    sly (MAX)
    wazza (MAX)

    Cheers

    I'd be interested in hearing how people go about doing prints for the exchange. I suspect that many of us have a routine set up that makes it easier.

    Here's two things that I do:
    I choose the negative that takes a minimum of dodging and burning (I try to limit to one easy burn). If you do that, then making 40 doesn't take much more time than 10.
    I switched to 5x7 paper. It doesn't cost much more than postcard paper (probably less if you use Arista or Kentmere paper) and I can use a fixed sized easel. Also, it costs the same to send it overseas from the US as a standard post card.

    I'd really like to find out a good way to print the labels. I have not yet managed to import the list to a standard label format! I'd like to handwrite it, but the post office could never read my handwriting!

    Mark (and others too, if you find this useful):

    I recently found a proofing easel on eB**, which makes it easy to put four 4x5 prints on one 8x10 sheet, so for my the last two exchanges I've sent out 4x5 cards.

    Prior to using the proofing easel, I was printing two 5x7s on one 8x10 sheet. I use a four blade easel, so I needed to tape masks in the appropriate places on the easel for this to work.

    I like the larger cards, and the postage (in Canada) is the same, so I might go back to them.

    I try to use a negative that I don't have to split grade.

    For the labels, I use the mail merge functions in my word processing software (WordPerfect). I use that function for lots of different things, so it isn't that difficult for me to use the search and replace functions in that software to re-format the comma delimited list into a data file suitable for the merge.

    The first attachment is the form file I used for the last exchange. I used it to print three small labels (Avery 5160) for each card.

    The second attachment is the data file I used with just one example address shown - that of our fearless leader, Sean (whose mailing address has been posted publically in these threads).

    The attachments have been pdf'd - if you don't use WordPerfect they may not be in the same in format as you would use. In addition, I've modified the data file slightly to make it more visible (by taking out the page breaks).

    Hope this helps.

    Matt

    P.S. I try to add at least a handwritten signature, if not a short handwritten note as well.

    Hi everyone!
    After the long hiatus and subsequent backlog clearance, I'm back for the postcard exchange.

    Please sign me up for 50 cards. Thanks.

    Rüdiger,

    In for the max, again. My New Year's resolution for postcards is to actually type into APUG the wonderful thoughts I've had each time I've received one in the mail.
