    Kathy, I'll be on the lookout for your card. Sounds like the Canadian Postal Service leaves a bit to be desired.

    Sounds like an April 1st joke of poor taste. I thought there was an internationally agreed min/max size for postcards so that this kind of thing did not happen.

    Maybe time to contact head office and get a definitive answer in writing.

    edit - canadapost.ca says: Length: 140-235 mm

    The US postal service accepts 3.5" wide postcards (e.g. 3.5" x 5"). Canada Post insists on a minimum width that is at least a couple of millimetres wider.

    I had a box of 3.5" x 5" Ilford paper that came for free with my enlarger.

    Confession time - in this round, my cards to the USA were 3.5" x 5" (and mailed from Washington State for $0.28 each!)

    So...I've just measured one of my extras and it's 3 3/4" x 4 7/8". Is it really just 3mm that this person was threatening me about? I can't imagine...I think they've lost their postie minds! ;-) Still, my apologies in advance in case there's trouble over this.

    @Matt- 28 cents? hmmmm... (Marge groan)

    Kathy:

    It looks like your problem is with the length of the card - the minimum length is 5 1/2".

    The USPS rate for international (not Canada) postage for postcards is $0.98 USD vs. $1.70 in Canada.

    I was really tempted to send my international cards from the USA as well.

    Today I received a nice wintry shot from Tim Gray. Really like the mood of this shot. Nearly makes me want to go give the young guy an umbrella.

    Cheers

    I got a beautiful card from Tim Gray this morning. The light is incredible. Thanks.

    I received Patrick Latour's "Jour de Pluie" yesterday. Lovely close-up of drops on a leaf, I like the low-key and the selective focus a lot. Thank you, Patrick !

    I knew I shouldn't have said that. I found two more between a stack of recent mail, sorry about that:

    Black Dog, Deal #2, nice high-key beach shot. Four heads above the water, they make for a great composition. And... no WW II bunkers this time, what happened?
    polyglot, Cambodia. Also a great shot and a great print, the light shining through the trees, the kid by the waterside, the reflections in the water; nice.

    And one "fresh" card as well (didn't get temporarily lost between a stack of mail):

    Allen Friday, Carousel and Tower. Typical Iowa image? Could have been Paris for all I know! Lovely evening/night shot, beautiful print.

    My cards are printed (I'm glad I chose to do 25 this round and not more; I had exactly 27 sheets of Postcard paper left once I had done the test strips... Talk about a close call). Still need to address them, though. I plan to have them all on their way within a week from now.
