Any ideas on the P&P on the prints to USA, Canada International etc.

Thanks

Craig,
Shipping is free to the U.S., $10 to Canada, and $30 to the rest of the world. That's per order, not per print.

I have yet to frame my dye transfer print from the previous sale, but I am thrilled to own a piece of history (I have the tri-colour fern). Can't wait to see what the upcoming image choices are.

Mike

I am super interested in having one of Ctein's prints.

I spent quite a bit of time with Charlie Cramer in his printing class and just reveled in his accomplishments with dye transfer images. As you are well aware, Charlie was one of the last of the dye transfer artists (yes there was artistry in the making of the prints as well as the creation of the images.)

So please, if it is possible allow me to purchase one of Ctein's dye transfer prints. It will occupy a place of reverence in our home.

We will separately provide TOP with a stipend to continue this type of work. God bless you for your brilliant efforts

Best

Woody,
Just check back here next Thursday at 8 a.m. Central Time. We'll have the print choices and several options for how to buy one, two, or all three prints. If you really want one, just don't dawdle, because last time one of the two prints sold more than 100 copies in less than 24 hours. This time there ARE only 125 prints of each photograph, so the one you want might sell out pretty fast.

And don't forget you can always buy a big dye transfer direct from Ctein for the regular price of $1100. (Small ones like the ones in the sale go for $400 normally.)

Mike

P.S. No extra stipend needed! Print sales do benefit TOP too. Thanks, though.

I strongly second Geoff (and Mike's) recommendation to watch Michael Reichmann's Luminous Landscape Video Journal feature on Ctein and his dye transfer process. (I had forgotten that I had this video from 2004, so thanks for reminding me. ) Even if you're not really interested in this print offer it's completely hypnotic to watch Ctein explain this intricate printing process...which he does extremely well. And, of course, it's always fun to have a human impression behind such a frequent contributor and commenter here.

So, hey, it's only $10 to download (if you don't already own this LuLa video). Plus, there's plenty of other good stuff in this early LLVJ issue. Ya got something better to watch on a gloomy winter day?

Dear Mike And Ctein,

Thanks for doing another run of dye transfer. I missed the previous one and I am SUPER interested. However, two problems, I am from Malaysia and there's the time zone difference meaning by the time I log on, the print may be sold-out and secondly, what other options for payment as I am not really keen on PayPal (previous bad experience).

Regards,
John Yoong

John,
I believe Malaysia is 14 hours ahead of USA Central Time (if I'm reading the charts right), which would mean that the sale starts at 10 p.m. Thursday your time. (Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong!) If you just log on at that time, you'll have the same chance everyone else does to order.

The payment options and instructions will be included in the announcement and on the order page.

Mike
