Lori, sound like your are doing fine. I printed post cards for a recent exchange and which turned out good. Then decided to print the image on fiber for a friend and after looking at the negatives realized I had a better negative. So the fiber prints turned out even better. Oh well. The nice thing is that postcard paper is relatively inexpensive and these exchanges get you in the darkroom printing. Plus I'm starting to look forward to checking the mail!!!!
