    I am trying to choose from prints I've made and decide if I need to selenium tone them but I'm fairly new to matting and dry mounting so I need to practice that a bit before I can send anything. I know I don't have to do this and if it doesn't work out then I may give up on it and just send a print but I'm enjoying these exchanges for expanding my horizons a bit so I'm going to try and do a real presentation with my print so please bear with me...

    Quite shocked at the price of mailing prints overseas, so I'm going to roll mine up and pop it in a tube - The prints I received in the past that have been mounted on foamboard suffered from the rigours of the mail system. Once I've checked & spotted my print, it will be heading way out east.

    What is the general opinion then, should I not try to mount and matt? Safer to send a print alone? I think I'm changing my mind about my negative and will need to make a new print but it could be in the mail soon if I don't need to cut the mat and heat the tissue...

    If it were you since you don't know who is getting it, would you prefer it mounted or not??? Sorry, this is my first time in the exchange so if this has been asked 100 times forgive me.

    I've only done a couple of exchanges before, so I'm not the best person to cultivate for an opinion... That said, I have received mounted prints (on foamboard), and mounted/matted prints. I have also mailed mounted/matted prints on a couple of occasions as well as shipped in tubes - Kinda sitting on the fence here

    For a more definitive answer, I'll let the experienced participants comment.

    Personally, I send a couple of prints each round. Unmatted/mounted. I just send them out and let the recipient do as they wish.
    Thank you.

    Received a very nice Holga-made/Kallitype printed image today from RST (I think). Thanks. I think I'll take it to my photo group next week.

    My image will go out eventually.

    I pressed 3 8x10 shots onto matboard this morning with Tiffen dry mounting tissue and an iron which actually worked out pretty well I think! I put them into the book press quickly afterward so I'll see how they turn out, hopefully good. My free hand mat cutting exercise however did not go well... perhaps the second try will go better or else I will need to get a proper mat cutter. Afterward I will have something to put in the mail, hopefully by Monday morning.
