    Welcome to 2018 and the 43rd round of the Postcard Exchange. Time to round up your favorite negatives and make a few prints. Just start with some film (or even paper negatives) and see what develops.

    Jan: sign-on
    Feb, Mar: print and mail
    Apr: breather

    OK, now the standard text, but please read on:

    There are links to the FAQs and an Introduction in my signature at the bottom.

    As in the previous rounds, please signup by starting a conversation with me (used to be called PM) containing your full name, address (including the country - this is an international exchange) and the number of cards you are able to send or say maximum for the maximum possible number of cards. You can also choose "ALL" you will still only receive the MAX number of cards but you will receive the complete list so you can share your work with everyone if you choose.

    As in the previous rounds, if you have been in the exchange for the last couple rounds and if your address is the same, you can sign on just with giving the number of cards here in the thread. No PM needed in this case.

    Important! As in the previous rounds I will post lists of participants in this thread every once in a while. If you signed in (or if you think so) please come back to this thread and check if your name is on the list. If the name should be on the list but is not, then let me know. Once the address lists are sent out early in October I can not do any changes. And also check for the number of cards behind your name.

    There are a couple threads with an introduction and FAQs (check the links in my sig). Just send me a PM or ask here if you have any questions.

    Please read on:

    As in the previous rounds, not all participants have been able to send out the cards. For whatever reasons, if you have not fulfilled your last rounds commitment, send your cards before you sign in for this round. Just be fair. (and drop a note in the last round comments to let us know you are okay)

    And as in the previous rounds, I am looking forward to this round.

    Now for those new to the postcard exchange, here is how it all works out.

    First: It is fun!

    Second: When registration is over, I will prepare address lists which I will send to the participants. You will have to send a card to every address on that list and you should receive back a card from everyone on that list. So if you join in for e.g. 20 cards you will have to send 20 cards and you should receive 20 cards back.

    Third: Did I mention that it is fun? Where else can you receive cards from all over the world, different styles, different methods, different papers!

    Hey George,
    Are you in Australia for New Years Eve this year?:D
    The Postcard Exchange is great fun. And those of us who participate can't thank George enough for the work he puts into it.

    In again for me please and as before, SIX cards for me please.

    BUT can I point out that I received NOT ONE notification of my cards sent being received on the previous rounds.

    Just double checking, I don't think that I'm the only one either.

    Come on peoples, it only takes a minute to acknowledge receipt of cards that you receive! It's a bit of a let down to not know if the cards sent have been received or not, especially taking into account all of the time, thought and cost that goes into sending them.

    Thanks as always to the organizer. :smile:

    Terry , please persevere, I'm going thru all the cards I have received looking for yours, I did note a correction in your address so maybe that is part of the problem, also the holidays could be another, so if you could persevere for another round it will be well worth it, I went through the same also, but as time past it was well worth the effort, and Happy New year to you Sir.

    O ya, want to add that we need to have your Photrio name and PCE # and don't scribble on those, so we know who the card was from.

    Plus, it is really handy to have a title for the card!

    Thanks for the comments guys and I have NO intention of giving up on this! :D :D :D

    I just wanted to point out what I said, mainly because it's not just me not being acknowledged and I didn't want it all to get any worse. :smile:
