I know this is OT, but this is the only Sub-forum I post in, so here goes.

I'm coordinating an international Lu La Print Exchange.  Right here, right now.

Here's the deal:  People sign up to participate, let's limit it to, say, 20.  Everybody selects an image from their favorites (or makes a new one) and makes 20 prints.  You send them to me.  Send them in solid packaging that I can reuse for you.  Make sure I get your proper mailing address.  I make 20 packages of 20 different prints and send them out to you all.  There you have it, Print Exchange.  We used to do this at work every other year or so and it was always fun.

I'll pick up the postage on my end, cuz I'm cool like that.

How to sign up:  Reply below, say "I'm in"

Done.

Cool?

I vote for 8.5x11 just to keep it managable.

I like 11x17, but if the majority vote 8.5x11 that's cool, def more manageable.

I'll take a poll once the roster is filled out to see how long people need to get their prints together.  We could target just after the holidays if that makes it easier.

I'd suggest that whatever size is settled on be a maximum size.  That way we know other's prints will fit in the shipping container we send.

I would love to take part, but I guess timing is a bit iffy for me. How soon do you want to do it? I am also in Europe... I don't know if that gets too expensive.

I prefer 8x10/A4 for logistical reasons, but will go along with 11x17/A3 as well.

No geographic limitations.  International was the idea.  I figured I give people maybe a month to get their prints together?  That can be flexible, tho.

Yes
we'll see how people prefer this
but I'm also for 11x17 or A3 size.
while I agree 8 1/2 x11 is convenient I think most prints will have a better impact slightly bigger.

I'm in!

I'd also prefer 11x17 / A3+.

Is it landscapes only, or anything goes? My vote would go for latter.
