OK, I'm in too. This will be my first postcard project and my first photo sharing experience in a long long time, but I love postcards of any kind so I'm not resisting any longer.

I have been using only MOO so far. They are not cheap, but you get high quality cards from them.,

Hello all,

thank you all for the mails! I will now close the list and send a mail to you in a few minutes with all the addresses.

Please make sure to check your address and data and send me a correction, if anything is wrong.

If you don't have this mail until tomorrow, please drop me a message here on RFF, so I can send you the data over another mail account.

If you want to send a mail to all participants of this round, you can use [email protected].

Hello again,

so, after two days with some minor correction, the final address list is ready. I will send it by mail in a few minutes. Please contact me, if you don't receive the list.

This time we are 30 people, so everybody has to send 29 postcards and hopefully receives as many. Last time, there were some complaints about too many missing postcards. So please make sure to write addresses carefully and send postcards in time.

About time: As stated in post #1: please try to send the postcards latest until September 1. (Earlier is better, of course...) So people don't have to wait forever. Especially overseas can take quite some time to arrive.

Now: Let's have fun and create some nice postcards!

Best regards,
Stephan

Is somebody going to be making a label-friendly version of the address list?

I just got the final email list from Stephan. I will put them on the Avery 5160 template tonight when I get home from work and email them to those who requested it. So, if you are interested and haven’t yet done so, PM me your email address.

Sorry for the simple format of the list. I use labels myself, but my printer uses A4 and not US-letter. Also I don't have any MS-Office compatible Software, so for me it's LaTeX with a Label-Macro... Probably unknown to most people here...

My Ph.D. dissertation was typed up with SCRIPT, which was the initial software that led to LATEX. Did you know this fact?

Not the fact about your Ph.D.
But I know about IBMs SCRIPT, never used it, though, only the roff-family of typesetting programs before TeX/LaTeX (and before I wrote my own markup-interpreter, that exports to LaTeX...). However, I doubt, that Donald Knuth would agree, that SCRIPT is the initial SW, that led to TeX. The concepts how text and commands are processed, are totally different (Markup -> SCRIPT vs. turing-complete macro language -> TeX), and his motivation was to reproduce the "classic" typesetting process used for books until the mid 1970ies, before computers took over and made typesetting a nightmare for aesthetically demanding people.

Anyway: being able to write printable documents in SCRIPT definitely assigns the alpha-geek-attribute to you. Respect.

Thank you for the details on TEX and SCRIPT. Both share the chances of getting back a mess after compiling a document with either one. I was using draft manuals to guide me with SCRIPT. Virginia Tech's Graduate School had a "thesis" macro that students were encouraged to use when they type up theses or dissertations. I somehow managed to type my dissertation with SCRIPT.

Thanks for the address list!

Got it all sorted out and ready to use with my printing system now. I print my own post cards and, with the list, I'll print the addresses and such directly to the cards. It's a lot better than my handwriting!

I've almost got the photo I am going to use picked out. I hope to have all of these cards printed and ready to apply postage by Friday evening ... I'm leaving on a big trip in two weeks, so they have to go into the post pretty soon to make the deadline!

best,
G

I received the postcards from MOO this morning and the first batch should go out today. The back of the postcards were a little bit too glossy for my taste and it appears not to have liked sucking up the liquid from my stamp, apologies to anyone that ends up having a smudged stamp – at least it will be on the back of the postcard.

I also order from Moo. You can order cards that are only coated on the picture-side. Those are easier to write on and better for the stamps.

I had a professor who worked with Alan Turing at Bletchley Park during WWII on figuring out the Enigma. Turing built a computer then.

That guy must have had stories to tell! (Except, that he probably wasn't allowed to tell...) Cool...

Jack Good is his name. He was briefly shown in the movie The Imitation Game. He used to play with the British Chess Champion, who was part of the Bletchley Park team.

Finally I decided to use something from a couple of days ago. I think I'm just a bit too anal about which photo. In any case I just placed my Moo order. Onto making labels...

I’m way behind. I’d like to take a new photo specifically for this round but I’ve been so busy these past few weeks. I may end up selecting an existing image from my archive.

Postcard cost

I just checked postcard prices at MOO and Vistaprint. In order to get the 29 postcards for the project, both sites require an order of 50. The premium MOO cards cost $55. The Vistaprint card cost is about $12 (with a Promo code that gets applied automatically). I've used MOO in the past and the quality was excellent. I'm trying Vistaprint this time.. got my fingers crossed!

It popped automatically at the last step of ordering. It was a promo code from "Bizrate", I think.

I took a shortcut, I hope no one minds, and ordered my postcards printed and mailed through TouchNote, the online postcard service, yesterday. No local stamps I'm afraid.
I hope the print quality is OK. It's my first time using their service.
Their functionality is great though, especially for the one postcard mailed to many different people. You save the card, including message, and change the address for each recipient.

Thank you, Jamie. I may try it out.

It is really just $12-$13 for 50 cards, glossy on front only, shipped.

Well, I have a picture picked out, but I'm still waiting on a fresh box of blank ilford postcards!

I hope the postcard team doesn't mind if there's a little delay, there's no predicting the mail.

I got my first card from PYeh.
That was quick! Thank you! I will order my cards this weekend.

Love this exciting phase, where I come home every day and almost always find a card. Great!

Thanks, KrotenB. Touchnote mails from the UK, Netherlands, US and Australia. My cards for the Continent were the first to be acknowledged by Touchnote as being printed and mailed. I guess Americans should be getting their's soon. Curiously I ordered one for myself but I haven't received it yet.

Intheviewfinder, you're welcome. The thing to figure out for yourself is whether TouchNote's postage rates work better for you than normal postage rates. For me in Australia mailing overseas it definitely did, not to mention the printing of the cards, and the postage time. I bought a large job lot of "credits" which brings the cost per card down.

It was a very long day of printing projects... But all my cards are now made, ready for postage, signature, and drop off at the post office. I'm out of town tomorrow... They'll go out on Friday.

Woo hoo!

Mainly I'm thinking I could use it as a way of sending postcards to friends and family when I'm on a road trip. Rather than sending the usual postcard I can send my own photo.

First card came in the mail today: Red Rock Bill's. Very nice!

I'm a slow one this go round -- work dumped extra stuff on me suddenly so I've not had time to develop and process my backlog of recently shot film. If I can't make the time in the next few days to do that, I will have to resort to pulling an image from my archives for printing. My apologies!
