Hello fellow swapbotters and postcrossers!

I love postcrossing SO MUCH that I wanted to make a HUGE (somewhat) PC swap!

You will have 10 partners, or as many as sign up allows. [So if 8 people sign up, you will have 7 partners and so on..]

I will give everyone 2 weeks from the signup date to get these out since there will be 10 partners.

Now for the nitty gritty simple stuff:

-10 partners


-Senders choice of STORE-BOUGHT postcards!

-4.95+ rating, no recent unsresolved 1s or 3s!

write a message of some sort!: quotes, a little hello, fun fact... YOU GET THE PICTURE.

SWAP ON!!! [:

YES! Because what I hate about postcrossing is you can't chooese country. I would send hundreds but I'm not spending $1.20 on each one!

I mean I would LOVE to do this for international, but cannot afford to right now XD! @squince 3.40$ vs. (possibly) 12$....!

WTG on being in the Top 10 Swaps this week. Woohoo!!

Hi @christy102194 Would you mind if I borrowed your idea and did a regional one for UK. I know what you mean about cost, to send a card out of UK the lowest price is £1, the equivalent of $1.56. It can become stupidly expensive, disappointingly so sometimes if you don't receive a card yourself in the swap.

I sometimes hold my breath when clicking "Send Postcard" on Postcrossing... Just hoping for not all of my outgoing to be international. And then coupling that with PostcardUnited... and facebook swaps... and postcrossing forum swaps...

I have a habit.

What a welcome respite, here. XD

@Terri07 thank you! ^^

christy102194 08/ 6/2015 #

@RachH that would be fine. Though you probably cannot see this post now that the swap is over. I will message you.

@ElaCaiu I understand completely. I do love receiving international mail, but not so much sending! lol! If it's a large postcard swap with my luck, I end up with all partners in a different country! XD

If you would like to send cards to other countries and not just the same country, you can go to the "Edit" section. Go to "Profile" and scroll to the bottom. There are three sections that can be checked. Remove the first check mark. This will let you send to other countries instead of just one. (I was getting all my cards going to Russia, and with the unrest there, the postage tends to get lost). Now I am getting them from all over the world and the turn around time is about 8-20 days, depending on the country.

I really need a Montana card to complete my 50 state collection. Anyone from Montana or have a Montana postcard?
