I'm with Sly on this one, I don't mind sending overseas and it's really kind of neat to get a print from someone in another country.

As far as the beginner/expert thing, in the Alt print exchange you're asked to rate yourself (Expert/Intermediate/Beginner) and then the groups are divided rather evenly with all three in one group. I don't really see a reason to do that but if others want that, I'll go along with it.
