Yahoo,  the new season is here!

 

The committee have been hard at work while we have all enjoyed the summer recess to put together (what I hope you will all find) a varied and interesting programme.  The club has had a number of enquiries from potential new members so I hope you are all, like me, looking forward to meeting them. It is worth noting that the first Print League competition PC1 is taking place on the 26th September so quite early in the programme.  Anyone (including new members) that need any advice on how to enter, mount their entries etc please make themselves known to the committee and we will make every effort to help them enter.  

 

 

Following the AGM four points need noting by all members

 
  1. 400 x 500mm mounts are now required for print competitions.  Images can be any size on that mount.
  2. DPI (digitally projected images) must now be emailed to dpientry@gmail.com.  USB pen drives/sticks are not accepted.
  3. Joint membership is no longer available.
  4. The Sports and Action Trophy has been renamed the Sports Trophy.

The Club is intending to order mounts during the summer recess.

 

The committee are to organise another bulk purchase of cut mounts and backboards.  A potential supplier has been sourced that supply these in both A4 and A3 apertures in Ice White, Soft White, Black, Ivory and textured Off White.  The minimum order from any one member will be 5 mounts of a single aperture and colour combination unless two or more members get together to agree a split.

As usual we will start the new season with a mounting demonstration in the first few weeks to refresh or train new members.  Several mounting methods will be shown including hinging which can make a mount re-usable and possibly the cutting of a mount with a stanley knife and steel rule (for steady handed and skilled only!).

 

Please consider how many and what colour you require an email will go out to all existing members with the available options during June/July.

Whilst the club does not endorse any particular processing labs a number of members and visitors have had good service from DSCL - DS Color Labs and below is a link to their website.  This is particularly useful to those that are unable or unwilling to print at home.
