[rollei_list] Re: Spring 2008 Print Exchange

I got mine yesterday I'm very glad I'm involved.
Mine was the color one and it was on Moab by Legion rag bright 190 which
comes in 5x7.
It has a slight texture this batch but its just natural pressed paper like
they've been making since Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492; basically
its water color paper. Same as you'd coat a platinum print on.

Thanks Elias and the other five guys and MJS for having us all here today.
We need gals.
