    I agree with Travis and keeds, let's not make this a juried show.

    I agree too. The print exchanges should be about learning. Learning through making your own print and also seeing other people's prints. It's not about getting a like for like exchange or a cheap way of starting a print collection.

    I hope Tim and Mark will reconsider.

    Cheers

    Oh, please don't think I'm throwing my toys out of the pram - I didn't mean it like that at all (I did edit my post at least once but obviously not enough .) What I meant to say I guess was not to allow newbies in on my account; if we are then obviously I'll be delighted to participate, but equally I'll not be offended if not.

    I haven't participated in a print exchange before (although signed up for one other so am dipping my toes..), i don't earn my living from photography but can guarantee that anything put in the post will be the best i can do - if my 'best' isn't up to another's standards I can only hope to improve - with the inspiration of those others.

    if a standard is set - as a group of geographically isolated people -we are the soul judge of our work and so may get that standard wrong (in the eyes of others) - and those who wish for a higher standard may still be disappointed.

    I agree with keeds, personally I would feel very vulnerable if the standard of work is such an issue - i don't seek to disappoint anyone.. can't we just enjoy others best endeavors and learn from them good or bad?

    The only standard I would like is mounted/matted/signed prints.

    Do the best you can, present it the best way.

    Shipping mounted/matted prints should not be more susceptible to damage than an unmounted print unless you don't do it with care.

    That is not my experience.

    And unmounted print is flexible; a mount board can break. And believe me - if anything can possibly break international mail will find a way to break it.

    If I do ship mounted prints they won't be dry-mounted on mounting boards, but wet-mounted on aluminium. That at least will give them a 50% chance of arriving in one (unfractured) piece.

    Ok, here's the deal: for what I had in mind for this print exchange let's go with following set of standards.
    1. this is about sharing what can be done in lith printing with enfasis on the process and not on the value of the prints themselves (I plan on sending out some nice prints and I'm sure everyone else will do their best as well)
    2. print size and presentation will not have any requirements
    3. it will be open to anyone who wants to print in lith with everyone saying how experienced they are just so we can mix up the groups
    4. this exchange will be international

    Sorry we can't accomodate everyone's wishes here. Possibly someone might want to initiate a "finished print exchange" with standards that aren't so loose.

    Here's a list of those who wanted to join, if you change your mind or I missed you, let me know.

    Some things we need to decide on would be the date that prints should be sent by and the number of people per group. I'm thinking 4 per group and whatever combo of 3 in a group to make the numbers work.
