    This is how I usually send mine...except that I use 2 pieces of cardboard around my print which is also mounted/matted. I'll say no more. (fingers and toes crossed)

    Well, that makes 17 of 40 sent and ten received with one drop out thus far. Just remember that holidays are coming up so let's see if we can't all get crackin' and have these prints sent by those aforementioned holidays.

    I want to thank you all for making my first round as organizer run so well. Can't wait until round ten.
    Thank you.

The idiot postman had to bend these over his knee to fit them in my postal box. He was the part time weekend man. Do not bend stamps all over. He did not care a bit.

    Monday morning I was at the boss's office with the package in hand and foaming at the mouth mad. I never saw that post man again. With luck he's now delivering welfare checks in Newark, NJ.

    I no longer send out mounted 8x10's. I send 5x7 Pt. prints mounted with plywood sheets as backer board. Let them bend that. The tubes are another good way to go but I like to send a mounted print.

    BTW, the Post Office just a reported 3.8 billion loss this year.
    I can vouch for photobum's method. I received his wonderful print in solid condition, no way the print will ever get damage unless it was intentional.

    Hello Ken,

    Thank you for your comments on my print. I hope I can keep the standard up in subsequent rounds.

    Regards Daniel
