Free silver-gelatin postcard-size print (limited offer)

[Nederlandstalige samenvatting onderaan]

Time for a small surprise. As you may or may not know (I do mention it every now and then on this site), I take part in the APUG.org postcard exchange. A few times a year, me and fellow analog photographers spend a few hours or days in their darkroom, creating a stack of postcards (or postcard(ish)-sized prints) that we subsequently send to each other by mail. All over the world.

Sometimes, a card gets lost. For this, I usually print a few spare cards, so that I can re-send a card if necessary.

This time, it means that I have a few cards left over from the previous round of the postcard exchange. And I want to share them. With you. Whoever you are. Wherever you are.

I’ve got four cards to share, all of the print shown above. 10×15 cm (4×6″) silver gelatin prints.

Whether you are a regular visitor or you just stumble upon this site for the very first time; whether you are one of the few who (ir)regularly share their comments, or just a silent onlooker; whether you live in Europe, America, Australia, the near or far East, Africa, or Antarctica… it doesn’t matter.

If you want a card, just add a comment to this post saying so. Don’t post all your details for the world to see, but do add a valid e-mail address in the right field when commenting. It will not be shown on the site, but I will use it to contact you so that I can get a hold of your address information.

What’s the catch? There is no catch. I share these postcards with fellow photographers the whole time (well, three times a year), so why not share a few extra with you? No costs for you (I pay the postage), no strings attached. The only thing I ask is that you please be so kind to notify me in some way (e-mail or comment) when you have received the card. That’s all.

Having said that, I will now share an abbreviated version of this story in Dutch.

[Nederlandse samenvatting]

Ik heb een viertal afdrukken (10×15 cm) van bovenstaande foto “op overschot”, en wil deze graag met je delen. Of je nou vaste bezoeker bent of hier voor het eerst langs komt waaien, maakt niet uit; wil je een van de foto’s, laat dan een commentaar achter waarin je meldt dat je er er een wilt. Het lijkt me verstandig dat je daarin niet al je gegevens zet; laat wel (in het daarvoor bedoelde veld) een geldig e-mail adres achter; dan neem ik langs die weg contact met je op om je gegevens te vragen.

Het kost je niks (ik betaal de postzegel), er zijn geen verplichtingen aan verbonden. Het enige wat ik leuk zou vinden is dat je even laat weten (per e-mail of in een commentaar) dat je de kaart ontvangen hebt. Meer niet.


By the way, it is “a bit” hard to see on the site, but the print has a white border; don’t be surprised; I did mention it here. 😉

    Postcard me! I’ll take one, Jacco!

    When I get all settled here in my new locale, will have to investigate that postcard exchange thing, I think it’s sounds fun to share with someone around the world. I’ll start with you and send off a homemade postcard of the beautiful mountains that I am now at the foot of! 🙂

      And so it begins! I’ll be contacting you shortly, Jeff.

    Okay, I know I don’t get many visitors… It’s painfully clear now. Even when I try to give away something, I’m stuck with 3 out of 4 cards. :-/

    It’s not too late! Have a card! Don’t be shy!

    Kom op, je kunt het. Vraag een kaartje en je krijgt er een.

    Of course I would love a card!
    I figured I needed to give other visitors a chance first…
    But you don’t need to send it, I’ll pick it up some day 🙂

      that’s one card reserved for you. Pickup or drop-off to be arranged, perhaps combined with a drink. 🙂

    I must say I have missed this opportunity, it is now almost four years ago. I guess I have missed many these opportunities in my life. I love to get this postcard exchange and also receive other peoples work in this way.
