    "real" postcards allowed to show here?

    I know this is an analouge site, and I love it for it.

    But I have made some attempts to make some postcards - for me and for my school. Obviusly I had to use PS to do this, so I am in doubt.
    Is it "allowed" to show them here?
    to see whether the photographs "work" as postcards.

    thoughts?

    Why not show both the original artwork and the finished article? That should cover all bases!

    Cheers, Bob.

    Why not make "real" postcards - postcard-sized silver prints? All it takes is an address and postage on the back to become a postcard.

    BTW, there's an effort underway to get Ilford to bring back their postcard stock.

    The "Grey Area" subforum might work best.

    argh.. no.
    if you're thinking of those plastic pre"stamped" papers to make postcards, then I'll pass...

    and if you want to use a handcoloured image with liquid emulsion as the post card... then I don't think I'll make too many..

    "Unique postcards" - that's an idea..

    Get thee to an artists shop. Fabriano sell their watercolour "Studio" papers in a postcard-sized pad, with printing on the rear to seperate address and message blocks in the standard way. We use them a lot for the kids to send personal cards to relatives. The paper is noticeably cream-coloured, and quite textured, but if it suits your style it's very convenient.

    I think Strathmore also makes postcard sized watercolor paper in tear-off pads, sold at most artist supply stores. I know Utrecht and PlA-Za carry them.

    The more I thought about this the more I wondered. Is it not explicit that NO DIGITAL is what apug is about? There are many ways to do postcards. For apug digital is not one of them.
