Other Postcrossers may have heard about this by now, too. Postcrossings sent out an email today to announce WORLD POSTCARD DAY is October 1st! I thought it would be fun to join in and celebrate this day as well!

This will be a VERY quick turn around swap, as the idea is to write AND mail the postcards ON October 1st. That is a Thursday this year. Sign up will end Sept 30th. I will assign partners on the morning of Oct. 1st (Pacific time, USA), and the mail by day will be October 2nd. We are only sending a post card, so you can purchase the stamp the day before and just pop it in a mail box - no need to go to the post office, etc. This card will be sent naked (no envelope) Cards are sender's choice - homemade cards are allowed, as long as they are nicely made (not just a piece of cardboard cut down with a sticker on it.) The idea is to send a postcard on October 1st.

Be sure to write the swap name and your swap-bot ID on the card! This is how your partner will rate you, so be sure to include that information! In the message section, write any message you wish to your partner. Tell them the weather where you are, what you are currently reading/watching, say happy postcard day - whatever you wish. :) And please remember, card is sender's choice!


If you get a postcard from your partner, I ask you rate a 5. As much as I love the USPS, they just aren't as quick & reliable right now, so the postmark on the card may not be accurate. Please, let's not hold that against our partners right now.
If you don't like the card or the stamp or the message, please don't rate your partner down. The idea is to send a card, any card, and with a such a quick turn around, there just isn't time to expect your partner to send you a card you love. If you can't agree to that, please don't sign up for this swap.

Who can join?

All swappers must have a minimum rating of 4.98. (If your rating is below that and you would still like to do the swap, please send me a PM. I can do private swaps in some conditions.) This is not a ratings booster swap! But! You still need to be responsible to join. If you have any 1-ratings to current swappers, please do not sign up. If you have any 3-ratings that can be made up, please do not sign up. And If you can't send on time, DO NOT SIGN UP.

I do check profiles and questionable swapper lists and I will ban those who I think will be a problem. I"m not perfect, I do miss things so if you know of a problem swapper who has signed up please contact me via PM with the information and I will take it into consideration. I appreciate the information, but wish it to be done privately rather than in the comments below.

ALL swappers MUST sign in to swap-bot w/in 3 days of the sign up date. You should have NO late sends on your dash.

New swappers with VERY WELL filled out profiles (I should have to scroll down when I look at your profile and have actual text to read rather than pictures and graphics.) may join if they are current on their dash, and have at least 3 rated swaps completed. If you have any questions please send me a PM and give me a chance to reply!

I will angel this swap if you are flaked on, but the purpose of the swap is to send on the 1st.

If you have ANY questions, Please send me a PM as soon as possible so I can answer your question. If you leave a comment below, I might not see it until it's time to assign partners. So send a PM.
