The cards have been mailed.

Thank you to everyone who submitted cards for the exhibition. It was a great success. We received submissions from 132 artists from all five “Olympic” continents.

All the Canadian and international cards (outside the US) have been mailed and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they will all arrive shortly. It was quite a puzzle, optimizing the stamp combinations to make sure the each envelope had enough postage – but not too much; almost as complicated as making sure everyone got a nice variety of 9 cards back – from 9 different people, with none of their own cards. I went through them several times, and each time I found one or two issues. In the end I just had to stop before I went crazy. Hopefully everyone will be happy with the cards they receive.

All US packages will be going out next week.
