Yes, that is OK. The only really hard rule is: The origin must be a traditional media - like film.

Mick, she likes your postcard (and me too.) Good to have you on board again.

Said prints are to be printed on paper about the size of a postcard, with appropriate pedigree information, and sent to specified people. Prints are to be treated like postcards and not to be put in envelops or otherwise treated differently than an ordinary postcard. I further understand that this is not pyramid, Ponzi or other type of nefarious scheme that will result in a major financial crisis and the end of Western civilization…as we know it, of course.

That sounds about right Sign up for 30 prints, and you will have to send out 30 prints to your recipient list. You should get back approximately 30 prints (maybe minus a few) from those people. Every once in a while, a card gets lost or someone doesn't send out a card, so you might only get 29
Most people print on Ilford postcard paper (look for 4x6 Portfolio RC paper). Other paper is fine though. If you live in the US, and your picture is 4x6 or less, you can use the postcard postage rate as opposed to the letter rate.
Oh it's a scheme all right, a scheme to have some fun without spending a fortune and get some great prints from around the world.
You could always try reading the instructions:
PS it's a hoot! - here is what my print dryer/refrigerator looks like in the midst of preparations
OK. Ill break my rule- I'll sign up now for 30, even though I haven't sent out my prints yet for the current Group exchange.
Same address (in Delta) as used in my most recent exchanges.
Thanks for pointing out where the instructions were. I had done a lot of searching and after 18 exchanges there was a lot of material on Apug to sort through...sometimes it is easier to ask. In any event, even though this is probably more fun then I am normally allowed to have, count me in for 20. that is as many as my refrigerator can handle.
