    Feeler/exploration for Wanted, 10 people for 5x7 print exchange. 2014, year 1

    Not all of us feel good enough to join the cool guys in the 18 print exchange. I, for one, am simply not ready for that. Just like Sundance Film Fest has an alternative, http://www.slamdance.com/ I propose a less anbitous print exchange program.

    To keep it simple and cheap, we make 5x7 prints only. If you don't do 5x7, crop an 8x10 or simply use a 4x5. Not many rules, not many people. Please DO use large format film or paper, no digital, no 35mm, no 120 roll film. Contact prints, Direct Positive prints, Reversal positive negs/chromes. enlargements, whatever. 5X7 on 8X10 backing ONLY, nothing bigger accepted. No frames, no wood, only single print on matt board or paper. I want to exclude digital prints, so wet work only, alt anything is also good. Hybrid is OK, if final is wet printed.

    We organize the same way the 18 Print Folio guys do it and each of us produces 10 5x7 prints anyway we want. I prefer contact prints as it becomes very fast to produce. But feel free to do anything. Make sure your print is matted no larger than 8x10 and we can easily mail these in 11" x 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" USPS.Priority Mail boxes, fixed CONUS cost of $12.35.

    No set topic, shoot and exhibit anything legal.

    Please join and follow through.

    If interest exceeds 10, I suggest someone start another group. This will be group 1.5x7.

    So each group 1.5x7 member commits to making 10 identical prints and mailing them to me, and when all 10 are in, I mail them out to all 10 Group 1-5x7 members. Each member then gets 10 prints to keep. I think we can do this for $15.00 a shipment using the $12.35, USPS Priority cost boxes.

    So your cost will be $12.35 to ship to me, please include $15.00 cash (no checks) in your shipment for the reshipping expense and I will repack and reship to all members.

    If I have some logic mistake or bad plan mistake let me know.

    If you want to do this let me know.

    Let me know here, in public, no PM's!

    How about a joining/commitment deadline of February 1, 2014.

    How about an April 1, 2014 April Fools Day shipping to me deadline. Please make the deadline!

    I will reship by April 15th, 2014 giving us all a tax day gift.

    This shipping plan and cost is calculated for CONUS only, if anyone else in the world joins, their costs and shipping times will need to be calculated by them.

    Gad, the details....

    I prefer we do all communication in public on this thread, unless Mod's move us where they need.

    Add your name below and let's keep this to active members with 25 posts or more.

    Group 1.5x7

    $15 is reasonable to ship, but I bet it'd be even less to ship an 8x10 film box full of prints.

    I can do this, but I would prefer it worked like the postcard exchange, just in an envelope. Not reliant on one person to amalgamate and dispatch the prints. No bother waiting for the late people, it turns up when it turns up, early ones first, late ones last.

    That is a wrinkle I did not think of. I think I will stick with original plan as we are three already and I am not sure separate envelopes would be any cheaper. I also like the thrill of looking at a set in one go. I have set deadlines, if you miss you miss. First important lesson I learned in art school, don't miss a deadline by even 5 minutes.

    Thanks David.
