    joeyk49, The difference between you and Adams, Weston, Strand etc. is that they had a bigger garbage can. I try to always remember to keep my darkroom garbage can filled.

    As a fellow novice, I can say that everyone that I have exchanged with has shown a great level of professionalism when viewing my work. In my first exchange I sent an unmounted RC print and was very worried that the recipient would bin it straight away. I felt the same thing for the alt. print exchange because I sent some of my first attempts at cyanoytype, and in comparison to what I got, my stuff deserved the bin. But I never heard a single word of complaint from anyone, only words of encouragement came my way.

    I think that you will find that by participating in these exchanges you will continue to grow in skill and understanding. I know I have.

    That's a great idea! Are any other people doing this? I always worry about damged corners and this seem to be a great solution.

    I find that placing the print in an archival bag, taping the bag to a piece of oversized foamcore, and sandwiching it with another piece of foamcore and then placing the "sandwich" in a bubble envelope makes for a very sturdy way to send prints. It can absorb a large amount of abuse and the print will still arrive in good shape.

    Interestingly enough, I was considering doing something similar. I am ordering a couple sizes of "Crystal Clear" bags from Light Impressions anyway and was thinking of using some 2 ply board as a wide protector for shipping, but I think your method sounds more reliable than what I was planning on doing. Thanks!

    Count me in. Since my spouse is very community minded and is not angry at Canada I will not be allowed to get a pass to leave the yard. I hope that the rest of you have a very nice conference. Sorry am I not to be there to spoil it for you.

    The prints I've been sent by other apug members have been packaged in the following ways:

    rolled in a tube
    the "sandwich" method I use
    Print placed between 2 pieces of 2-ply board sent in a standard manilla envelope (board and envelope roughly the same size as the print)

    The tube method works very well, the sandwich method works very well, the print being placed between 2 pieces of 2-ply board in a manilla envelope doesn't work very well.
