    Might try the tube route next time. I sent my prints in stiff envelopes sandwiched between illustration board, plus they were 11x14. Between the size and the weight it cost almost 10 usd each to ship. I choose priority since it was only a dollar more than parcel post. To contrast I receive 2 prints including a 16x20 in a mailing tube and the postage was under 3 usd. The mailing tube seemed quite robust.

    I got mine out today. Hope they make it okay. Couldn't decide which prints I wanted to send but hope everyone likes them. I packed in cardboard envelopes with a piece of foam board. I always have foam board around that have been used in boards for demonstrations and projects. They are not nice enough to use anymore but they work great to add some bulk to shipping envelopes!

    Lacking motivation I guess. Still yet to print. Gimme a short bit and I'll be underway.
    Thank you.

    Finally an evening to sit down and relax... I have been a little remiss in acknowledging that I have received prints from Charles and Roger (they arrived safe and sound), a nice forest scene with beautiful light from Charles and a photo of a pottery studio/factory from Roger. Roger's makes me wish I had been into photography when I worked in all those old New England factories.

    My prints will be in the mail early next week.

    I mixed the toner a long time ago. I'm not sure what it was! I think it was selenium? or sepia? Whatever it was it was one of the kodak packages with the bleach and toner.

    I've been away for a bit, but I've received: Travis' picture from Shenandoah National Park - the matte surface really works for the subject matter; and Amanda's night shot of shipyard buildings which has very interesting tones/toning. Mine are sent. I went the mailing tube route as I recently had the opportunity to print from 6x17 panorama negatives and couldn't find appropriate envelopes for the resulting long skinny prints.

    best,

    Tim

    Received Tim's picture in the mail yesterday. Really like the panoramic print--very nicely done. Thanks!

    I seemed to have survived this crazy month of February. I just hope March isn't as insane. Prints are in the mail.
