Thumbs up RFF POSTCARD PROJECT Part Deux...

The first one went pretty well, I think, and was truly a fun thing to have organized and participated in.
So, I am happy to do another one.
I think the same format as before; standard postcard, subject and gear open to each person's choice.
Print your own or have 'em made by whoever you choose. BW or Color.
If folks would rather send a small print in an envelope that's OK as well.
I think the final count was 39 of us, and I did not limit that number in anyway other than setting a time limit for folks to email me their addresses.
This time of year, I am much busier at my job than I was for the last one and some folks the last time expressed concern that the time frame was a bit short. And the same concern has been mentioned for this one as well.

So.
I think I will collect addresses from now--Friday 4 May 2012--until Friday 1 June 2012 and then we should plan on mailing by 27 June 2012.

As before, please email me your name, address(PLEASE make sure it is correct and correctly formatted!), and RFF username.
Put "RFF POSTCARD 2" as the subject line.
My email:
rob<dot>biemer<at>gmail.com

I will NOT use your info for for anything other than this project.

Who wants to play?
Rob

I'm in.

Just sent you an e-mail after discovering, too late, that I'm actually capable of reading and that you prefer e-mails to PMS.

Sent you my address again separately.

Thanks!

Sorry to the participants I may not have acknowledged in the first round, at the end I was pressed for time. I will go over my postcards again and see if I left out anyone.

After reading the last postcard project thread, I think I got the idea.
Email sent.

Is there a list of good places to print postcards?

I don't think I can afford more than 50 cards, nor do I want to write that many addresses! Any way to limit this?

If there are 100 participants, can the the order change so the first parson mails his/her cards to people 1-50 on the list, the second member mails 2-51, etc, the 50th member mails 50-100 and starting with member 51, it begins to go around, e.g. the 53rd person ont list will mail people 53-3 (53-100 and 1-3).

Suggestion to participants:

On the back of your post card, could you write/type your RFF id?

I'm in again too - email sent.
Might be postcard, might be print in envelope, haven't decided.
It does depend a bit on the numbers involved.
I'm happy for up to 50.

However can we create some kind of the place where all addresses will be ? Last time the email thread of last minute change was kind of confusing. We can create google document with participant's address and share it on the web ?

I believe the cost of the Postcard Project 2 is offset by the interesting cards received from around the world. To participate seems like a bargain as well as a creative challenge.

Thanks Rob, I'm in again. I think I can go 50 max with real postcards (I'm going to use moo), or up to 100 or 150 with just 4x6" prints used as postcards.

Assuming Intl. mix, maybe 50-75% US?

For those wanting to use moo, here's a 10% discount code:

To anyone new or hesitating, it's a great project. We all got a real range of cards from other people and it's a great chance to think about what you can give as well.

I'm in again as well. Really enjoyed getting the postcards from all over the world. Now I need to decide if I want to go the Moo route again or do wet prints.

OK!
As of this morning we are at 28 people.
And I will be sending y'all an email to confirm I got yours later today.
A few things:
IF we get more than 50 folks, I think I will split the total number into groups as evenly split as I can. A mix of addresses so no group is all US or all EU (or whatever) addresses, so the every one gets as even a blend of domestic and foreign addresses as I can make it. At that point, I will then give all of us the choice of how many of the groups they want to participate in.
Ilia,
I like your suggestion of a google doc. with all the addresses in it. I could then just send the link to every one. And, if/when there are corrections to be made, I can either send just the corrected address or edit the document and let every one know.

The last minute changes/additions were a bit confusing but I'm not sure if there is really much I can do to avoid that. I suppose I could be ruthless about the closing date but I'm not sure that I want to be that tyrannical for what is intended as some simple fun for every one--including me!

Woo hoo!
Rob

Ben showed us the postcards from the first round at an RFF get-together in Boston, and I regretted not having participated. So I'm in, email sent.

Quick question...
Does this mean current photos, photos taken during the postcard period, older photos, or... ?

Thx Rover

Now I notice folks are using the Moo folks. I use them for business cards (mini & std size). So I could mix up the images and send out random cards. Is that okay? Or should I send everyone the same image?

Yeah I know, newbie questions but I'd rather be embarrassed up front rather than later.

Oh one other thing... Do folks like to see the exif info?

TIA
