    So how do you guys ship prints? Flat with stiffening material, or in tubes? Resin coated okay, or only FB?
    Art should unsettle the comfortable, and comfort the unsettled.

    Everybody uses his/her method. I've done flat in an envelope between two cardboard pieces. Lately I switched to tubes because of the size of the prints I've been mailing. Either RC or FB is fine.

    I forgot to mention in the announcement of the thread. Please let me know if you would rather ship your print within the same continent or worldwide. With shipping costs going through the roof, not everyone can afford to mail that 40x60 inch print to the other side of the world.

    All of the above. Although it's not required, I like to mount and matte my submissions so I usually ship in a flat box enclosed in bubble wrap. I have received prints in boxes, stiffened envelopes, and rolled into tubes. The envelopes, especially coming from overseas, don't always hold up very well. Tubes are bulletproof for unmounted prints. Both RC and FB are fine.

    I thought the blind prints were all postcard sized and that's why the shipping was do-able?

    Actually, there is no restriction on size at all. It could be a contact print of your favorite shot from Minox camera (please include a loupe for those of us with older eyes), or a 5X enlargement from your dumpster pinhole cam: http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2012/0...nhole-cameras/ The latter one might incur some noticeable shipping charges, especially if you matte and frame it.

    Ken, Uwe and Paul, I assume that your addresses have not changed. Please PM me if that's not true.

    StoneNYC, I don't have your address - please send me a PM with it and I'll add you to the list.

    Here's my latest list of participants:

    Eugene (anikin)
    Bert (TheToadMen)
    John (JohnRichard)
    Edward (Ed Bray)
    Ken (Ken Nadvornick)
    Uwe (piu58)

    Wait so there is a SEPARATE postcard exchange?

    All of my "prints" will be of the non-wet kind FYI, I've finally gotten an enlarger thanks to a very amazing APUGer, but it won't be set up for another year or so I'll be printing through a lab... Is that allowed?

    Stone:

    Read the FAQ thread linked to in the first post in the thread.

    Sort of like the "Instruction Manual"

    And yes, there are a number of different exchanges here on APUG. See the "Member Organized Functions" forum: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum61/
