I've gotten 8/10, including all the Canadians (I think) and the Aussie. If you want to make sure you get the "postcard" to whomever, stuff it in an envelope and send it that way. Sure, it bumps the postage up to letter rate, but then you know it will get there.
I received a lovely polaroid today from Martin, thank you very much! A beautiful green countryside. What's the story behind this one Martin?

I surmise that the .008" step of the print on the backer might cause a problem in their sorting machines. So what I've done is mount a 3.5" x 5.5" decorative border on to the backer. This border is .008" thick, the same as a P-roid print. The center of this border is cut out in a 2.8" x 3.7" window. I trim the white borders off the P-roid print, making it 2.8" x 3.7", stick it to the backer in the window cut in the decorative border. This way the P-roid is in a decorative window mat and NOT sticking above the surface of the larger post office approved size card. A lot more work, but it does not stop me from sending a P-roid postcard.
Hmmm ... so far most of us have been slapping a stamp on the back of the Polaroid and most have been arriving to their recipients - except, it seems the ones heading to Nicole in Australia.

I got my Fuji instant film today. I even have a subject in mind - just have to get up the guts to ask the property owner if they mind.
I'm in again. I just received one from Martin this week that is better than anything I have ever printed by any method. This polaroid is FANTASTIC!!
I guess I'll sign up... I'm hopefully going to get more polaroid film at the beginning of the month so I can take some nice sx-70 pictures. I like the sx-70 more than the instax camera. I think it's because I like close-ups and the sx-70 can do focusing up to 6inches or so. If not, everyone's getting instax since I have a pack of that hanging around here.
I'm hoping to receive two packs of 600 film in a few days, then I will see whether the cameras I bought are in working condition. If they are, I'm in for sure :) . More news within a week...
