  • Mail work flat and unframed.

  • You may include up to 3 extra prints of the same edition for sale purposes. If your print is a monoprint/monotype or variable edition, it is okay to send similar prints for sale.

  • Clearly label the back of your print - you can write with pencil directly on the back or attach a separate piece of paper with your name, title, process, and price.  

  • Deadline to receive work: October 1, 2019

  • If shipping within the United States, please include return shipping label.

  • Shipping: Please try to use rigid envelopes that are no larger than 11 x 14. If using a non-rigid envelop do not use corrugated cardboard as it can still bend and crease your prints - use a piece of mat or chip board. The smaller you can keep your packaging the easier it is for us to store.
