Received a lovely, delicate print from BirgerA today. Wife smiled when I unwrapped it, we both like it a lot. Thanks!
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”

Thank you Craig. I'm glad you like it! I started to worry it might have gotten lost in the mail. I've got the feeling
that unless you mail things Express or Priority, USPS is taking all the time in the world to deliver the print.

Received a beautiful big print from Eugene Anikin a little while ago. Very nice print of an old spy plane engine. Thanks Eugene.
Yeah, shipping these days can get through the roof. I've been wondering if we should give participants an option whether to mail their print on the same continent, or world-wide. At least whenever it is possible. I know I like receiving prints from as far away as possible, but these shipping costs might keep some people from participating. Suggestions?
We are getting close to the sign up time for the next exchange. However, my work load these days is going through the roof. I am looking for a volunteer to take over the reigns of the Blind Print Exchange. Any volunteers? I will help as much as I can, of course. On the job training is offered with benefits. I'm not totally sure what the benefits are, but you can figure it out on your own
But to be fair I have chosen to dry mount and custom cut a matte and backboard for all of my submissions. I then send these in oversized flat boxes with large amounts of padding. This approach does drive up the cost, mostly because of the box size.
