Yes, I'd like to know too...last postage bill had me living on beans for a month!

Just joking but I remember it being around the $100 mark.

It was an interesting, fun and sharing experience...so count me in!

I've never tried them so I cannot vouch for them, but they do have direct fulfillment services. Might be worth a look-see.

I used Overnight Prints for the previous two postcard projects. They also do my business cards and brochures, etc. I think the quality and service are excellent, but you can judge the quality for yourself if you got my cards.

Looking at one of them right now (Greensboro Christmas Parade). Nice matte print on good sturdy card stock. Based this this, Overnight Prints seems like a good option.

Rob, thanks for organising this exchange again.
I'm in.
- although most of the cards I received in Round 2 were damaged in the post. Postage costs are always going to be an issue for some - internal US seem to be a bargain.
60 seems to be a reasonable maximum number.
Local views seem an appropriate subject for cards.

I thought this Round might be running now so have my cards ready to be addressed! Nothing like being ahead of myself - very unusual!

Hi Rob

Thanks for tackling this again. I'd like to sign up for this one too.

I think two lists is a good plan if numbers go over 50 or 60. Everyone sends to the people on their own list and can choose to send to the other list if they wish. I think quite a few of us would send to both lists in practice.

I like John's idea of local views,although perhaps just local. On the other hand, I'm always happy to see other peoples work.

Mike

Round 2 was fun but at 60 cards it turned out a bit pricey. Including the cards from Moo and postage I spend around 100 which is too much for me to spend again in the run up to Christmas. I think two groups limited to 30 would be more realistic

If sixty cards was too costly for some people, then I have no problems to have 1-40 plus 41-80 as two groups. If you want to, take one group or take two groups. It will be fun either way

Rob, please add me to the list for round 3! The first two rounds were a lot of fun and still enjoy picking up and going through the postcards I received.

We ended up with about sixty last time and that worked out OK for me.

Would not want any one to be excluded so breaking up into two smaller groups would work. Perhaps there could be an option for some who would like to participate in more then one group. I would not mind creating a second set of cards for any members who would be listed in both groups so there would be no doubles.

Just a thought, I do enjoy receiving the cards from as many of the members who would like to participate.

Thanks once again for stepping into the breach and starting up round three!

Life is Grand!

Dan

Cheers

ps. Aussies unite to save on postage. Sending pm to lynnb and astro8 to go over the options. Any other aussies wanting to join in for round 3 and reduced postage rates - pm me.

I'm in -- no matter how many participants we get. (if it goes over 60 and we split, I'm happy to be in both groups.)

It'll be a nice distraction from grading poorly written papers!

Smile Away we go!

Lots of good response both in this thread and in PM and emails, thanks folks!

So. What I am going to do is this:
The email address we will be using for this round is below and I really need anyone who wants to play to use that address, please!
I want to have every ones' info in one spot. Those of you who have already sent me your info, please resend it to the email address below.

I am not going to limit the total number except by the cut off date.
Which is 1 January 2013. I will send you all the addresses by Friday or Saturday that week. We should all plan on mailing starting on Feb 2.

As to the numbers, what I think makes sense and seems to be the consensus is that if we go over 50 or 60 people, then I will divide the total into smaller lists. I will make those as evenly split between local and international addresses as I can.
I will aim to have each of those smaller lists around 30 to 40 people, I think, but the actual number may be different depending on the total turn out. I will update the total in this thread as we go.

And, I remain unconvinced we need a theme for subject matter.

If you want to participate in RFF Postcard Project Part 3 please send:
  • Your mailing address.
  • your RFF user name.
  • IF you have a max number of cards you can send and what that number is.(this is for my use in organizing the lists and won't be shared with anyone else)
Send this info to:

rffpostcard3<at>gmail<dot>com

Thank you all for playing!

Rob

Thanks Rob - I'm also unconvinced that a theme is necessary. The first two projects were huge successes without themes, and if it ain't broke...

My info is on its way...

As of this afternoon (19 November) we are at 15 people, including me.

I have got a few more folks that sent their info to my own email and PM-ed me. If you folks would please resend your info to:

rffpostcard3<at>gmail<dot>com

I would very much appreciate it as that will simplify send you the mailing list(s)!

Thanks, all!
Rob

I concur registering for different lists, if required, just to get as many cards we will have participants. Count me in again. Just sent you an address confirmation email.
