    Got my prints done last night. The best part of that is that I was able to revitalize a stash of about 400 sheets of Agfa Portriga Rapid G2 and G3 that I thought were dead to the world, but my new lith chemistry seemed to work perfectly and not much age fogging at all!
    So, that's what the prints are printed on. I'll be sending them out soon, after they are flattened.

    You folks are moving too fast. Please slow down! It will be a few weeks before I am done!

    Mark - don't worry - I'm in the same boat as you. I'm still trying to narrow down my choices of what negative I want to use, what paper, what chemicals (I have a few choices now). I'm hoping to get into the darkroom next week but I'm not counting on perfect prints right away (not that things are ever perfect anyway).

    RPippin -- I hate to say it, but you've missed the deadline for this round. The groups are already set up, addresses exchanged, and prints are drying as we speak! I'm not sure when the next round will take place but you'll be more than welcome to sign up then.

    OK, I am printed up after a very successful 5 hr session in the darkroom last night (I had a few other prints to get through), But I need some advice on protection. How do you do it? Do you matt them and then send them, or just flatten and put them in a hard backed envelope (will need to find such envelopes here).

    Also, is the tradition to name sign them and date them, and if so I assume on the back in pencil...

    I won't be sending them out, until I have worked out how to send them safely.

    Rgds, Kal

    Kal, and everyone - to ship safely (I've always had good luck like this):

    1. Make sure the print is in something water proof, like a print file sleeve that's been taped up.
    2. Use fairly heavy cardboard, four pieces, slightly larger than the print.
    3. You know how the cardboard has a structure, you can see its patters, and it bends easier one way than the other. Criss-cross that pattern with two sheets on top and two sheets on bottom.
    4. Tape the print to one of the cardboard couples, lay the other cardboard couple on top, and then tape those two together - all along the edge.
    5. Wrap.

    This makes for a very stiff and secure envelope. I haven't had a single print, even matted to 16x20" become warped this way.

    Or, if you're sending it my way, put it in a sleeve, and send it in any book about/by Mary Ellen Mark, preferably signed, and send it over...

    OK, I am in three print exchanges and I have a negative which is good for a lith print, a normal silver print and a kallitype. I started with lith and did some test printing with different papers this evening. I ended up with an Ω-lith print on Fomatone and lucky as I was today, my prints are drying right now. I hope to send them out later this week or early next week.

    Cheers
