First card arrived (from pegelli). Sent 28 Sept., received in the States 9 Oct. Almost no damage, a very tiny scuff, top center and some mildly bent corners.





Hatred corrodes the container it is carried in. http://rogerrex.zenfolio.com/

Posted 3 more cards over the weekend. They will take a while to cross the planet
I expect there will be some damage as I printed at home on 300gsm cotton rag paper and some were as large as I was allowed inside the rules.

I have one left......................

Is it wrong to send one to myself?

After failing with PostSnap I thought I would try MoonPig. I uploaded the file on Friday (I think) and the card arrived Monday:





It looks like this was mailed from the Channel Islands, and the card arrived in good condition - as good as the Cewe cards I prepared and mailed.

Everything went smoothly, but I didn't stress test it with a European address.

Edit: scan updated 12/x/21

Howard, great bike racing shot. At first I thought it was one of my shots since I will go see and shoot bike races sometimes. But, then I remembered I didn't send any racing shots this time around for the DPE, LOL.

Thanks, Art - you can see more from the set here, https://www.dyxum.com/dforum/womens-tour-of-britain-stage-1_topic140262.html

Something went wrong with the colour when I photographed the card ... [edit] so I updated it with a fresh scan.

DPE Update

Four (4) cards received
   Harm VB
   Roger Rex
   Hezu
   Phil Wood

I haven't posted mine yet. I had to re-order them since Royal Mail folded my package from CEWE to post through my letter box and all the cards were creased!

The replacements should arrive any day now so my cards will be despatched later this week.

Ouch! Are your cards so big, or is your letter box so small?

And number 3 arrived: a very "British" sight of the Donnington Almshouses with a history and Phil's escape on the backside.


The card looked quite well.






Thanxs!

I can report Phil's card arrival too
It's my fourth (of 5+ 5 bonus in total).



It depicts the remainders of Donningtn castle. I like the lady with the dog on the leading path.
It's high gloss Cewe postcard print, and arrived in good shape. There's only a red ink spot just above the castle. With the printed description on the back it has a classy and professional look.
Same stam as Harm's card above.



Part of the hand written text was covered by a postal service sticker, but I managed to carefully remove that.

Let's hope it will be reopened for public, so next year we will have a card with the view from the top!

Thanks for sending Phil!
