    It's Sean first, according to the list I got. So that's where it's going!

    Thanks, Ole.

    Re: the matting issue.

    There was one on foamcore, I think with a double overmat, when I got it last. If we could keep it to two sheets of 4-ply maximum (mount support and overmat), that would be good.

    I decided to submit an 11x14" print this round, so I sent it unmounted in a glassine sleeve with one sheet of 4-ply mount board to protect it in the sleeve.

    I don't know how everyone feels about this, but it would probably protect the prints best if everyone were to mount to a uniform size to keep prints from sliding around in the mail. and to make the whole package sturdier.

    I decided to send an unmounted print more or less for the same reason. Glassine sleeve, but no mount board. I considered doing that but decided I'd make it easier for others to decide whether or not to bother with taking it out of the sleeve

    Since some prints will have to be matted (platinum deserves it, at least), I agree to sticking to 11x14" size either mounted or unmounted or loose with protective sleeve.

    That is going to come back to haunt me next year...

    The potential danger of submitting unmounted prints without a backing board and sleeve, I think, is that someone--perhaps a customs officer deciding to inspect the portfolio in transit--might lift the prints out in a stack, an unmounted print might slip out by a few inches, and the stack might then be stuffed back into the portfolio, creasing the print.

    The hazard of submitting a mounted or unmounted but unmatted print without a sleeve that is less than 11x14" is that it will rub against the mount above it as it shifts around in the case and the print surface may be scratched.

    A potential problem with submitting prints on various sized mounts is that a print on a larger board that is adjacent to a print on a smaller board might bend and become warped as the weight shifts in the case.

    If all prints were mounted and matted on 11x14" board, the stack would be more solid for shipping, and a more uniform presentation might make it easier, say, if someone wanted to organize a small show of the portfolio as it passed through their town.

    On the other hand, a non-uniform presentation makes it possible for all the participants to see how each person normally mounts his or her prints. For instance, on the first round, I decided that I liked Jorge G.'s style of hinge mounting better than my own, so I decided to switch to his method.

    I have thought in the traveling portfolio that I can afford to lose the print if it is damaged. While I don't want it to be destroyed, it is something that I am prepared to live with.

    Me too, but at the same time, I wouldn't want to mount my print in such a way that it could inadvertantly damage someone else's print, and I could imagine that at some point, someone might want to submit a Polaroid or bromoil or gum over platinum or other kind of irreplaceable print, and it would be best if everyone felt safe about it.

    good thought...always thinking of me first. But given the nature of how it is shipped there will undoubtably be some loss.

    I thought that was why it's locked :whistle: ?

    Jay,
    I don't have a problem with that at all.
