RFF Postcard Project #10

Hello dear RFF-members,

this will be the thread to the RFF Postcard Project Nr. 10

Before I explain what it is, how it works, let me say, that I'm truly sorry,
that it took me so long, after I already got some PMs asking about the next
round and said it would be in the next days, but this was weeks ago... So, very
sorry, it was a busy time.

Now, to the project: It's already the 10th time, that we organize an exchange of
postcards between RFF-Members from all over the world. Everybody, who wants to
receive and send postcards made by other members here, are welcome to join. The
more international, the better, I think.

Here is, how it works:

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
postcards from all over the world (ideally...) and have real prints instead of
online-pics only.

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 we then send 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 10
    • Your real Name
    • Your Address, as you would write it on an incredibly important 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! - This also means, I don't have
    addresses kept of previous rounds, so it is not enough to mail me with simply
    stating, you are in again - I need the currently valid address.
  • Timeframe: You can sent me your mails for participation until Saturday, August, 4., 2018, about four weeks from now on. After that, I close the list and send every participant the complete list one day later. Then I give another five weeks to shoot/choose the picture, create the postcards and mail them. Meaning, please try to send your postcards 1st of September, 2018, latest.

If I remember correctly, we had about 40 people each time, so this is what you
can expect this time, too, I think. Maybe a few less, since it's summ vacation
time and maybe not everybody will see the post.

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

PS: Don't worry, if I don't answer each question to the project or
participation-mail immediatly (could be a day or two). I'm on vacation the next three weeks in Japan,
shooting the picture, that you will get...

I use Overnight Prints.

Many use Moo.

Overnight is cheaper.

This is timely for me. It's been a while since I've shot color film and have been wanting to get back to it with my Zeiss ZI. I just ordered some Kodak Pro Image 100 to try it out and my old standard (Fuji Superia 400) so my entry will come from one of those rolls.

Me too.


Also, I would add Vistaprint to the list of printers here in U.S. I used them for the last 2 RFF Postcard Projects. Worked fine.

Been pretty busy so it will be fun to return to this. I participated in an earlier swap. I think it was no. 2. Still have that fine collection. My wife got me some 12x12 inch 3-ring photo sleeves that hold 5 postcards. I was just looking at them the other day so this is a timely boot-in-the-butt.

Hello,

wow, that has been a wave of replies! It seem, I just announced at the right moment...

We are now 16 people, me included, and that was just after two days. Nice! Keep them coming!

I should have replied to all of your mails by now. If someone is missing, send me a message, please.

Thanks for being in, looking forward to the best part: receiving postcards!

However, we are now at 21 people, me included.
If still in doubt, think of that: more than 20 unique prints from fellow RFF-members can be yours!

Why unique? Because we already noticed that the marks and traces on the postcards from transportation and post offices add to their emotional value.

Hi again, krötenblender, and many thanks for starting RFF Postcard Project Nr. 10.

I'm in, and I've sent the email with the info you requested. I'll look forward to hearing whether you've received that email, when it's convenient for you.

Thanks again, and I hope you have a great time in Japan!

And once again, I will volunteer to email an Avery 5160 template (in MS Word) with every participant's postal mailing address after Stephan sends out the compiled list.

PM me with your email address if you want a copy of the template.

Hello all,

thanks for all the mails to be in this round. We are now 23 People, me included, so there is room for more!

Anyway, this morning I had the second PM, that a mail wasn't answered by me. Both were from people with a gmail-address. There is an issue between the provider of my internet-domain and gmail, so that mails don't get delivered. (Technical stuff: In the past, the whole IP-address range of my provider was set on spam-black-lists - mistakenly. Then my provider, the biggest in Germany wasn't very smart in responding to this error, and so both, gmail and Strato, never completely resolved that issue... - Well, so much for the free Internet)

Solution:
If you are on gmail and I don't answer in two days, send me a PM to make sure, I got your message.

Best regards,
Stephan

Hello all,

I know this can offend or make someone mad.... but after round #9, making 30+- FB copies and loosing them in a black hole (thanks national postal service)...and mainly after a home move (icluding a full remodelling) I've managed to re-do in a friend's darkroom all the copies (again in FB) and finally sent them to the #9 participants (sent yesterday...yes, sorry)...

I'm not into #10 as I've not finish my darkroom but thanks for oranizing this again, I'll be in for #11.

#10 will be my first, any advice on postcard printing in general and even better, advice for printing in London. I generally prefer to support physical shops, but online will do if they have a good reputation.

I send mine to a local printer, but a lot of people swear by MOO.

Here’s the link for UK orders:
