If you haven’t sent out your entries yet, it’s not too late… Entries need only be postmarked by the end of the day.
Don’t have a quality printer?
Go to your local Wal-Mart with a CD, and print your images using the one hour service. Or, use the Kodak Instant Picture Maker. Both produce great quality prints, are quite color accurate, and relatively inexpensive. A single print will run you between $3 – $5.
The Kodak machine prints on extra glossy paper which can be a bit hard to view under certain lighting. Given the choice, I’d opt for the one hour service, which prints on a satin Fuji paper. For the first several years that I entered Spectrum (and got in), these are the type of prints I submitted.
Worried about packing your prints?
Use your local post office. The 8×10 photo prints will fit easily into a flat rate Priority Mail envelope.
You can fit a ton of them in there, as well as a sheet of cardboard for added durability, and it still costs just $5.
So go for it!
You’ve got 17 hours left, and times-a-wastin!
