Coordinators are obligated to reject prints whose primary method of production is by other means. For example: monotype, intaglio, stencil, lithography, ink jet, laser, photocopy, etc are to be rejected by the coordinator.

The prints simply stack up inside it. An 'official' Baren label for your case may be downloaded here -- edit the exchange number on the front and spine and then print it and paste it onto the cardboard slip case -- it is designed to wrap around the slip case so that the exchange number is visible on the spine.

    Exchange #50 print information form
  • Participation: You must be an active member of [Baren] in order to participate in this exchange. The mailing list that makes up [Baren] is open to everyone to join, and the membership is thus made up of a mix of 'lurkers' and active participants in the forum. Signing up for an Exchange obliges your active participation in [Baren] discussions... If you remain a 'mystery' name, it leaves everyone feeling quite uncomfortable.
  • Rejected prints: If your prints do not conform to the above specifications for Medium, Image size, Paper size, Paper type, and/or Delivery deadline then the coordinator should promptly reject them, notify you by email, and (if you enclosed sufficient postage) promptly return them. You may repair and/or replace the prints prior to the delivery deadline or drop out of the exchange prior to the drop-out deadline without penalty, otherwise a penalty may be imposed.
  • Communications: email for coordinator: coordinator50@barenforum.org
    It is essential that the coordinator be in close and timely communication with you. You must respond promptly to e-mails sent from the coordinator and must notify the coordinator of any change in e-mail address. If you become 'lost' and do not respond to communications from the coordinator, you may be dropped from the exchange without further notice. If this occurs after the Drop-out deadline, a penalty may imposed.
  • Penalty: The [Baren] Exchange Manager will promptly notify you by email if it is determined that you may be subject to penalty. Please see this page for all the Exchange Rules of Participation.
  • Delivery information: You must enclose 101 prints, a self-addressed mailing label, and sufficient return postage (in the coordinator's native currency or postage). If you do not know the exact amount of return postage, please send more than you think will be required, a guideline is $10 for USA to USA delivery, $20 for international delivery. Please deliver your prints in a package that can easily be reused for shipping the collated suite back to you.
  • In the USA, the best way to send the prints is Priority Mail. Flat rate envelope is $4.95 anywhere in the US and will fit the smaller chu-ban exchanges. For larger size exchanges, please see:
  • For International Priority Mail please see: http://www.usps.com/international/prioritymailinternational.htm
