I'm new here, how does this work? Unfortunately, I don't darkroom print anymore, I use my pro-100. I would certainly be interested.

A print swap would be fun.

Generally speaking, the rules of a print swap are up to the originator to define. Whether the prints are B&W or color, wet lab or inkjet, what sizes are acceptable, etc etc are all part of the swap's rules and definition.

I only print inkjet (since about 1994) so a wet lab print exchange I can't participate in. I do both B&W and color work, and would suggest prints that can fit into a US Letter sized document mailer as a max size, and 4x5 inch as a min size. The swap rules should also define the dates when to register for the swap, when the mailing list will be available, and when all the prints should be mailed.

Swaps are fun but require a commitment. Love doing them and seeing what everyone else is working on.

Maybe keep it postcard size for shipping economy worldwide?

Never done a print/postcard swap myself. Pretty excited now that I have a working printer.

Having taken part in many satisfying Print Swaps, I found that shipping prints (8-1/2 by 11) around the world from Seattle was very affordable.

I think the postcard swaps are great, but that's an even more restrictive format. Stefan has run the last couple of them.

Let's keep it a print swap for this round. And yeah, up to a standard US letter size print isn't too expensive to produce and ship.
