The First Week of May is National Postcard Week, so in honor of this week I thought I'd host a swap where we will send a postcard every day of the first week of May! That's 5 postcards to one person, mailed one by one each day of the Nat'l Postcard Week!

USA Only!

You'll be given ONE partner, to send FIVE postcards to. Sender's choice, please send every postcard naked and written on (meaning no envelope).

Put the first one in the mail on Monday, May 7. Second on May 8. Third on May 9. Fourth on May 10, Fifth on Friday, May 11! Please be sure to have ALL cards mailed by Saturday, May 12.

Please number your postcards such as 1/5, 2/5...and once you've gotten 5/5 postcards rate your partner!

4.9 rating. I don't mind a few EXPLAINED 3's. But No recent & unexplained 1's, I will ban. This is not personal, but this is an in-depth swap and I need to protect those who join!

This sounds great!

Hi, Will the postcards have National Postcard week on them? Enjoy the day! Demaris

druideye 01/19/2012 #

No, they can be any cards you'd like to send. Checking your partner's profile for likes is awesome a good idea!

Storebought or handmade is fine!

Hello, can the pc's be from zazzle?

druideye 03/25/2012 #

Yes! I love zazzle cards, they are so beautiful!

craftybarbie 04/26/2012 #

What are zazzle cards and where do you buy them?

I wish this would run the actual week of NPCW (May 6 - 12). Unfortunately, I am preparing for a postcard show which will be on May 4 and 5 so am unable to participate.

druideye 04/27/2012 #

How odd. Some sites I look at say NPCW starts May 1, others say May 6-12. As the majority say May 6-12 I will change the dates to reflect this!

Ilovepostcards 04/28/2012 #

Thanks for the correction on this. I signed up!

fawnscrafts 04/28/2012 #

I just got my cards back from the printer. now I can join!

druideye 04/29/2012 #

Some of you have 1's you've just received, and some of you have 1's you've received in the past. I check everyone, and it's nothing personal but if I see a bunch of 3's, or 1's that never got taken care of and you haven't gotten in touch with me to explain, I will ban you. I'm very sorry, but this is a large swap and I have to do what I have to do to try and protect my swap's participants! Take care of those 1's!

ezredax 04/29/2012 #

The correct date is May 6-7, 2012. If you would like more information please check out www.npcw.multiply.com There are more than 4000 scans of postcards sent over the last 29 years. Enjoy the day Demaris

druideye 04/30/2012 #

I don't think it's May 6-7 since it's called National Postcard Week and 2 days is nowhere near a week! Haha. Thanks for the web site.

I just shared this awesome swap on the Swap-bot blog here. Thanks for hosting!

druideye 05/ 3/2012 #

@racheljohnson thank you very much!

Ginger 05/ 4/2012 #

I have sooo gotta do this! I'm so excited to swap and I collect PCs!

druideye 05/ 5/2012 #

@ginger good to have you!

cspaperholic 05/ 5/2012 #

Will you accept a Newb? I have joined two swaps, but have no rating yet. I am a responsible person. Postcards are already purchased if I am allowed to participant. My profile is complete. Please?! Promise not to bail.

druideye 05/ 6/2012 #

Partners have been given! Let the swap begin! I only had to ban one person. There were a handful with old 1's and 3's from the past, don't let me down folks!


ezredax 05/ 6/2012 #

My error - The correct dates are May 6-12, 2012. I should type without my glasses.

manders2280 05/ 6/2012 #

Quick question about marking the swap as sent - should I wait until I've sent all five cards, like not rating the sender until I've received all five cards?

druideye 05/ 7/2012 #

Yes, mark it sent once you've mailed all five!

racheljohnson 05/ 7/2012 #

Just put my first postcard in the mail! Happy National Postcard Week!

STUFFellaneous 05/ 7/2012 #

Me, too!

KateKintail 05/ 7/2012 #

I just dropped my first in the mailbox and picked out the other 4 I'm going to send :-)

EmilyT 05/ 7/2012 #

Mailed the first one also

druideye 05/ 8/2012 #

Mine are stamped and ready to go out each day! One sent, one in the mail today...yay for Nat'l Postcard Week!

manders2280 05/ 9/2012 #

Mine turned into a storyline. I've mailed three with three more to go. I hope they all arrive and in the correct order!

druideye 05/10/2012 #

That sounds awesome @manders2280 wish I'd thought of that!

racheljohnson 05/11/2012 #

Dropped my last one in the mail! Fun swap!

KateKintail 05/13/2012 #

Oops. I sent 'em all on time and then forgot to come back here and mark sent. Silly me!
