Description:

You will have 20 partners for this swap. For each partner, prepare an envelope stuffed with goodies. Although there is no required envelope size, you are only required to send using one stamp (nothing huge). It is your choice on what to send and how much to send. Just make sure it is worth your partner's swap.

Idea's on what to send: -bookmarks -stationary -postcards -random craft supplies -fabric -ribbons -washi tape samples -new or used stamps -stickers -note cards -scrap-booking items -profile based items You can send anything you want; the sky is the limit. However, please make sure anything you send is in good condition. Also, make sure you have enough items to send several things to 20 people. Include your swap profile name and the name of the swap.

Do not sign up if you don't intend to participate. 20 negative ratings will kill your overall rating. I will angel swaps not received if you have contacted your partner and they do not respond. Just let me know.

Time to fill our mailboxes!

PS. Check your postage! A lot of people have gotten their envelopes returned or delivered needing more postage. Be mindful of how much you need to put on. You don't want your partner having to pay extra postage.

Just to confirm- Only 1 partner or 20?

ladyaduial 05/15/2018 #

It's 20. The swap has been updated.

Twenty partners? Really? Oy.

So a regular business sized envelope would run around .50 for first class and then add on if it's bulky correct? Is there a minimum number of items to include? I have a large collection of ATCs I'ld like to find new homes for...does each item have to be different (might like to send 2-3 ATCs if that's OK) This is sounding like a fun swap...

This is what I do for postage: Start with a forever stamp. If it's more than 1/4" thick, add another forever stamp. Add 21 cents for each ounce (or portion of one) that's over one ounce. If it's rigid or bumpy add 21 cents and mark it non-machinable. Large envelopes (if it's over 1/4") are not supposed to be rigid.

@beenebag You are not required to spend more than one stamp. I would say most people stuff their envelopes and use two stamps though. Most people send a variety of things. If you want to send several ATCs that'd be fine. Just make sure it is worthwhile for your partners.

@ladyaduial thanks. I'll definitely keep it to one stamp especially since the postage hike to .50! But it's gonna be hard to restrain :-)

I’m having fun putting my envelopes together!

Pdxmommy 05/31/2018 #

I can't wait! I'm off to the post office to pick up some non machinable stamps, or maybe just extra ounce stamps.
