    Made prints last night, but didn't have time to tone. Should get done and out the door by next weekend, I hope.

    Well... THAT didn't happen... The cutting did... But the shipping didn't...

    Someday, I'm going to fake my own death, resurface as a new person, and have all of my time to myself.

    My print is finally ready. I'm gonna make a sturdy package tonight and will post it tomorrow. Delivery across the ocean: about two weeks??

    Mine is toned, washed, and dried. Dunno about flattened - I suck at getting them flat without them coming out of my press with a weird hard to fix corrugated effect. I may have it professionally mounted, but in any case it should ship soon.

    I made a parcel out of three layers of sturdy cardboard, included a nice letter and it's in the mail today, across the ocean to in the USA. I'll send it with Air Mail, but it might take two weeks to arrive. I hope the recipient likes it. I'll post my image here after he/she confirmed the save arrival of the image.

    BTW:
    I decided not to board the image (is that the right word in English??). At first I planned to - to make it sturdy during shipment - so I asked the photo lab what to do. But he said it would immediately limit the recipients options to choose how to frame, hang or store the image. So I didn't.
    What do you think?

    By "board" do you mean "mount"? As in using a dry mount press?

    Yea I think that's what he means. I think it would be nice if it were an extra large board, as in, give excess space to the edges (6 inches or more?) and allow the recipient to cut it down to the size for the frame they want. Any framer could easily cut it down even with the image inside. However it's also a matter of how much the presentation is important to you, like, if you believe this photo should go with a certain type of frame, color, size, as well as matting, and that's how you want your image to be presented to the world, both in their home as part of the body of your work, then you should choose not only the matte board, but also the frame, if you don't care and you're just making sure it's sturdy for shipping, you could mount it with cloth tape instead of dry mounting it, and let the recipient decide if they want to hard mount it or not.

    Either way you're ahead of me, I thought I would have this image done by now but I haven't, soon!!!

    My offering is in the post today winging its way to some far flung spot on the map.
