    Instant Print Print Exchange

    OK folks, let's try something ... this is a variation of the postcard exchange.
    1. I'll need 10 people to sign up - post a message here and PM me your real name and address
    2. Participants must use a Polaroid camera, or Fuji Instax camera, or any other instant print camera or any camera that uses instant film
    3. Participants need to make 10 images - an entire pack of most instant films
    4. Slap on a stamp and address label on the back of the instant prints and mail them out
    5. That's it!
    Whadayasay?

    Sign up by August 15 or when we reach 10 people, whichever comes first.

    I think even instax photos are too small to be posted as postcards, at least in the UK. Minimum size is 3.5x5inches if i'm recalling correctly from Royal Mail's website.

    min size for postcards

    I checked Canada Post for international rates - minimum size for postcards or letters is 140 mm x 90 mm (approx 5 1/2" x 3 1/2") so probably standard across the world.

    Suggestion: stick print to a piece of 90mm x 140mm thin card scavanged from packaging (recycling), address card and slap stamp on card?

    I've had quite a bit of mailing very small items through the post (including polaroids "as is") - much smaller than what the minimum is and they always make it through. I've always just stuck on the regular postage for a letter, and they'll arrive.

    Well, you can follow the 'rules' and not particpate or you can screw them and join in on the fun.

    Here's a site where the rules have been thrown out the door: http://www.postcardpolaroid.com/

    Join the dark side, we'd love to exchange prints with you.

    Polaroid stuff shot on a 4x5 count? Can we contact-print Type55 negs on Ilford postcard paper? Or does that remove it too far from the "instant" quality?
