RFF Postcard Project #9

Hello again,

here we are again. Number 8 was fun and I received many great cards. And so can you, especially if you never took part the rounds before!

Number 9 already, wow! - Shall we name the next round "Type 240", or will it be 10?

However, first things first: If you don't know about the project, this is, what it's about: We collect participants, exchange our addresses (I will organize that), make postcards prints for all others in this round and send them. So everybody will get great cards from all over the world (ideally...) and have real prints instead of online-pics only.

Here is how it works (copied from last round and edited, so if you have a deja vu know, you did probably take part last time... ):
Inventor Rob (rbiemer) laid out the basic rules which I will follow here and which are as follows:

RFF-PP is a picture postcard exchange. Every participant selects one of his photographs and makes postcards from it (make prints yourself, order postcards online - it is up to you. I always ordered online.), which are sent to each other participant of this round. Please choose only one picture (this is really the hard part!), so that every participant ends up with the same collection of picture postcards.
  • Organisation: To participate, please sent a mail to rff-at-mempool-dot-net (that's me) containing the following information:
    • Subject: RFF Postcard Project
    • Your Name
    • Your Address, as you would write it on a postcard to yourself from somewhere far away in the world (including line-breaks and country name, as this is an international project)
    • RFF User-Name
    I promise, that all your data is only used for the purpose of this project and will never given away for anything else!
  • Timeframe: You can sent me your mails for participation until Saturday, September, 9., 2017, about six weeks from now on. After that, I close the list and sent every participant the complete list one day later. Then I give another six weeks to shoot/choose the picture, create the postcards and mail them. Meaning, please try to sent your postcards until mid of October, 2017, latest.

If I remember correctly, we had about 35-50 people each time, so this is what you can expect this time, too, I think.

I missed no round until now and I can promise you from looking at all the great cards of the previous rounds, that this is worth the effort! It's a treasure, so please participate! - RFF is a really great place for this type of projects.

Let's have some fun, start mailing!

Best regards,
Stephan

Haven't missed one yet. I'm in again and yes, I'd be more than happy to send the Avery label template with names to anyone who wants it.

And thanks Stephan for facilitating this again.

Hello all,

this starts up really well! Thank you all so far.

Please, I'd like to remind you:

Add your Country to your Address!

About half of them until now haven't added the country. Not sure for all of them and better be sure than sorry, when postcards fail to reach you...

Best Regards,
Stephan

I'm in! Again.

My absolute favorite RFF activity. I missed the first few Postcard Projects because ....I didn't know about them yet.

But now that I do, I relish the whole process, and always look forward to the next project.

If you're an RFF member and haven't participated in a Postcard Project yet, I recommend it. You won't be disappointed.

I suppose its dangerous to encourage participation We could end up with 200-300 people which would mean a lot of [international] stamps. I use an online service to print my postcards (I use VistaPrint) and order 50 cards (they offer discrete amounts: 25, 50, 100, etc.). Rather inexpensive. The stamps can add up in cost, depending on how many international stamps I have to buy. However, all the previous Projects have been quite affordable with no more than 45 participants. Definitely worth it!

I'd love to take part again. #8 was fantastic!

Would it be OK for a friend of mine to join, who's not a member of the forum but a very talented photographer in my eyes and keen on participating?

This has happened in the past and there was not a problem. In that case one member had a small number of students participate and worked out.

Wonderful, Robert!
These card projects have become a "tradition", and the entire family looks out each day for the postman to bring us some cards.

Yes, of course, everyone is welcome.

This weekend I will post number of how many people joined so far, so you get an idea, how it is going.

Thank you all so far, really looking forward to the flood of postcards!

Hello RFF Postcard Friends,

this is, where we are as of today:

20 people joined so far, from USA (12), New Zealand (1), Italy (1), Germany (2), Spain (1), Switzerland (1) and two unknown (need to get this info, otherwise postcards will not arrive from other countries...).

Some people missed to either add their RFF Username (2) or their country (also 2, but not the same). I will try to get these infos when I send and check the final address list. Someone suggested to include the RFF-name in the address-list. I think, this is a good idea.

20 People so far, there is room for more of you!

Regards,
Stephan (krötenblender)

Stephan: You have the emails for the people who participated in the last RFF postcard project. How about emailing them one time only just to point to this thread? Maybe this thread is not seen well due to having so many threads at RFF?

Agree with raid.
I have been a member for a few years but saw this project for the first time. I guess if the thread is not on the first page, it will get missed by most.

It also works via word of mouth between RFF members who communicate with each other with email and private messages. Pass the word around.

Hello Raid,

not a bad idea. To make the thread visible, I try to post something here regularly, so people notice on the front page.

I was reluctant to mail everybody, because I don't wan't to spam them...

22, by the way.

This is why I wrote "email only once"
Nobody from that email list will view one brief email as SPAM, Stephan.
Blame me for it!

I've participated in the last three rounds, and loved each one, but with the arrival of a new baby expected very soon, I think I'll have to sit this one out. I have a negative picked out for wet printing, but right now I've got to concentrate on preparing for this other project. I plan to do PP10, though!
