Spring is here, another two months have flown by, and it is time for Print Swap 6.

Go here for the rules: http://home.comcast.net/~seaskate/index_files/Page361.htm

Please note, put PRINT SWAP in the subject line of your email to me and please do not forget to include all the information per the list on the Rules site.

We have done 5 of these swaps so far and all (as far as I know) have been a great success. It is a wonderful way to see the work of others in a real-life, real-time, non-digitized format. It costs little and the rewards are many.

Tom

PS: For those that have participated before. It would be a GREAT help to me if you would add to your email the swap partner(s) you have had in the past.

PPS: Joe, please unsticky Print Swap 5 so it can fade away and sticky this instead.

um, only 16 views and no signups in the last 24 hours.

I'll give it another day or two and if there is no interest, we'll let this swap cycle go by.

I got the feeling in the last couple print swaps that there wasn't as much interest.. perhaps give it a break over late-spring through summer (many people are out, anyway) ? I won't have time for this round :(

Hi Tom,
I'm interested. I'm holding off on signing up officially until next week, so that I can be sure I can get a print together. I'm taking a darkroom class and want to make sure I have something acceptable ;)

Wow, where did you get that idea? The swap numbers have been fairly constant, except for the very first one which had the fewest participants of them all.

Anyway, I'll give it a few more days to sort out.

Thanks,

I'll keep the sign-ups open for a few more days and then draw the names.

Hmm.. felt like there was more "buzz" around the first two or three, or maybe I'm just making it up being lost in my own lack of time :o

Looks like this swap has picked up again, good luck :) I have to sit it out, though, will try to make the next one!

I'll keep the sign-up open through the first part of this week and do the drawing this coming weekend.

Quick question before I jump in an sign up: The rules say "The shortest dimension should be approximately 8 inches ". I made a print last night that was full frame w/a filed carrier on an 8x10 piece of paper. The shortest dimension of the paper is 8x10, but the picture itself is framed within the center of the paper. The actual picture is less than 8". Problem?

T_om (or past participants): Do we e-mail you our mailing address and also e-mail it to our swap partner, or do you take care of sending out the mailing addresses. The webpage made it sound like we send it to you, and then send it again to the person. Out of curiosity, why send it twice?

-Paul

RML
05-10-2006, 07:13
Paul, the rules are more like guidelines. As long as the short side is _approximately_ 8" than things are fine. A small border isn't a problem.

Just send your email address to Tom. He'll need it to inform everyone of his/her partner. You send an email to your partner to confirm the email/postal address and such.

T_om
05-10-2006, 21:04
Paul,

Remy is correct. Borders are fine, the spirit of the rule is to provide something pretty near 8" on the shortest side, but it doesn't have to be exact.

Per the email: Just go to the sign-up site listed in my original post and all the details are there. I will do the drawing and notify everyone of their partners afterward. I always include the mail information but you can certainly contact your partner to confirm. In fact, I would highly recommend doing just that.

OK guys, here are the pairings. This started off slow but ended up with the second largest participation of any swap to date!

Contact your swap partner and away you go.

PLEASE REMEMBER the 2 week rule. Get your prints out within the two week shipping deadline please.

I will also be sending out email to everyone with the same list.

Just a check to see who has shipped and who has already received their prints.

Today marks two weeks since the drawing. If you have not already shipped your print, please contact your swap partner and let them know what is happening with the delay.

You can certainly post about the Swap.

It is NOT an invitation to post a critique however, so please keep that in mind and the comments appropriate.

I just sent Barrett an email, but I want everyone to know.

I blundered. Badly. Unintentional, but a blunder nonetheless.

Somehow Barrett's name got left out of the drawing this time around. He did everything correctly when signing up... I received and acknowledged his signup email, then proceeded to stupidly overlook his name when I put all the participants names in the hat for the drawing.

So, I offer this public apology and promise to do better next time. :bang:

Both my partner and I haven't received each others prints yet, even though we both sent them weeks (if not months) ago already. I can't understand what has happened. Usually international (Holland-USA) mail isn't much of a problem.

Quite so, Tom. I've never experienced any such delays as I experience now. Really odd.

The delay has been very strange. I just got a package from Taiwan in a matter of a few days, but still no print from Holland. Remy, do you want me to send another copy?
