Blind Surprise ATCs - Round II
Swap Coordinator:Hell0Z0mbie (contact)
Swap categories: Artist Trading Card (ATC) 
Number of people in swap:58
Location:Regional - United States
Type:Type 3: Package or craft
Rating requirement:4.99 (unrated swappers allowed)
Last day to signup/drop:February 6, 2014
Date items must be sent by:February 14, 2014
Number of swap partners:1

For this swap you will make 1 ATC for 1 partner.

You will select and wrap (i.e., cover in some kind of paper, envelope, or other wrapping) an ATC before partners are assigned. No cheating and waiting to look at their profile! :)

Make a nice ATC for this swap. There is no theme, and it should (obviously) not be profile specific. Send a nicely made ATC. Go to some effort.

While stickers can be used sparingly, they should NOT be the predominant art. Stickers should be embellishments only and NOT the focus of the ATC. Otherwise, any media is allowed.

New swappers are allowed with well filled out profiles.

Artist trading cards are 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

I believe no one should host swaps they aren't willing to angel themselves. I will angel if necessary, but I screen participants to minimize the risk of flakers getting in. I will remove participants with poor ratings, open swaps, drama, comments, or other swapping history that concerns me at my discretion. If you have poor swapping history and want to participate, please proactively PM me to explain them. Otherwise, I may ban you with no notice if I am suspicious.

Because of delivery issues, multi-profiler/flaker concerns, and site policies I require real names. If you join a swap of mine with a fake name, you will be asked to fix it.

This swap is U.S. only on account of postage costs. If you want an international version, feel free to host your own. :) I believe the International Small Swaps Group is hosting some international blind surprise ATC swaps.

Hello. ::wave::

Your swap seems like it would be a lot of fun, but I'm brand new to swap-bot (literally, just signed up today), so have no ratings yet. May I still join?

(I tried to message you directly, but clicking on 'contact' does nothing for me and it seems I haven't yet figured out the system. -__-)

Thanks for doing this one again! The first one was a blast.

@Nailet you can join... as I said above, new swappers with well filled out profiles (as yours appears to be) may join.

So, we create an ATC, then wrap it, Like a gift, Before we mail it out?

Hell0Z0mbie 01/27/2014 #

Yes, that's correct @Opalsns

I can't wait!!! I'm heading home with a great idea for an ATC to make just for this. It will include all of my love!!!

Hello, hope you don't mind another newbie. I've done exchanges before, but am new to this site. :)

Opalsns 02/ 6/2014 #

Yay, Today is the 6th.... we get our partners names soon... Can't wait, it's ready to go.... Then I can get into another swap......

Hell0Z0mbie 02/ 6/2014 #

Swap-Bot actually doesn't let hosts assign partners until midnight of the day signups end. So I will be doing a final check of participants, and assigning partners tomorrow morning.
