    Just sent mine out yesterday. I realized I had forgotten to say who they were from so if you get one that says "Greetings from West Virginia!" it's me, rpavich. :sad:

    Got my first card, but it probably shouldn't count, because I mailed it to myself (as I always do).
    Which is a roundabout way of saying my card - titled "Jeepers Peepers" - is in the mail system(s).
    Just a note to the recipients in Canada. While the notes on the back state "No toning this time" a couple of the cards going to Canadians are toned in sepia toner. I did some toning trials on a couple of cards, but came to the conclusion that I liked the un-toned ones as much as the toned ones. So all the US and international ones are un-toned, as are all but a couple Canadian ones. I didn't want to waste the toned ones, so if you received one, consider yourself lucky :smile:.
    If my records are accurate, this is my 30th round. I need to figure out a more efficient way of storing the cards (I still have them all). The individual display albums take just too much space.

    I haven't done any where as many rounds as you Matt, but I too have been contemplating how to store / present the postcards received so far. Therefore I'd be interested to hear how your or others on this forum store your cards?

    Many thanks in advance.

    I need to think about that also. I am only on my second round but I can see what's going to happen.

    I set up a pattern of 25 frames that i rotate cards through, have them set up so half of the frames are portrait and half are landscape.

    Received "Greetings from West Virginia" today. Where did you find the Double-XX?

    My cards are printed, toned, and ready to post. They will go out in today's or Tuesday's mail (Monday is a federal holiday in the US). Hope you like the image I selected.
