    And the winner is... Uwe Pilz !! Your card arrived today in Chateauneuf. The subject is very moving, and the print shows nice textures and details.

    Thanks !

    I received Uwes postcard yesterday. Thanks, I agree with Laurent.

    I will have to write my cards, that will take some days but they should go out next week.

    Cheers

    Wow, you guys have already sent cards....I am only going to start printing this weekend. What worries me a bit is the fact that I don't have those neat "postcard" paper sheets, only normal thickness sheets. I hope the postal services don't manage to destroy them in transit. Maybe I should stick them on thin(ish) cardboard or something.

    Yes, these guys are amzaing ! I hope to be able to print this week-end (think I have the negative selected, but I need to find a way to do neat contacts).

    I received some cards from other rounds on "regular" papaer, and they were not more damaged than the postcard paper.

    I've never sent out my cards on *real* postcard sheets - always been cut down from larger sheets or regular size sheets if I've had them in stock. I admit I do stick my labels (fullsize) which does add to the thickness a little, but have also just used 2 smaller ones on many as well.

    And many of the cards I've received haven't been postcard stock either and still fair very well in the post.

    It's rare that I receive damaged postcards in any form, unless it has been soaked in the rain at some stage prior to delivery.

    Yes, it is surprising how well all those postcards arrive, no matter if they are on regular RC paper, on Ilford postcard paper (which is I think Ilford Gallery paper which has a bit thinker paper base), FB, cyanotypes, Polaroids, even the very small Fuji Instax postcards arrived well. And - it is a postcard exchange, so a bit of wear should be part of the fun

    The Ilford postcards are on their heavier-weight Portfolio RC stock.

    I use regular RC stock most times. If you look at a "commercial" postcard you will most likely see that it is on paper, rather than RC base, so would be as likely or more likely to be damaged than RC stock.

    Received my first postcard today, from Uwe Pilz. Indeed a very moving photograph which sets in motion a train of thoughts, at least for me.

    Thanks,
    Trond

    Has anyone sent Fuji Pack film prints out before? Would they survive I wonder? Hmm, ideas, ideas... I have a whole bunch of FP-100B that expires in November 2011, very interesting... too many ellipses...
