Doing a break in November and December, so re-starting in January...

Send your partner a storebought postcard with at least a short note on it. Don't forget to add the swap name and your user name.

No ad cards, no handmade cards.

Sender's choice.

To be send naked (without an envelope).

Open to newbies as long as your profile has at least 15-20 lines. Can't believe I have to add, but: Seasoned swapper also need at least 15-20 lines on their profile.

I'll check profiles before assigning partners.

It's essential that you send on time. Send dates are not suggestions, they are binding so please ensure you're able to fulfill swaps you join by the last date to send by.

When you've received a swap, you must rate fairly. Please rate ASAP after you received your card. No silent rating, please add at least a short thank you.
Rating is necessary for hosts to keep their swaps safe. But before rating down your swap partner please contact your swap partner. You can always contact me via PM when there are any problems.

Welcome,Ianaalva! love your enthusiasm! Typically, a day or 2 after the signup is closed (in this case, January 24th or 25th) you’ll get an email telling you “it’s time to start swapping,” and you will be able to see your recipient’s address & profile.

You can look to join swaps that close out sooner. If you click on “find swaps” at the top right, you can view swaps by “sign up date.” Then, click on “search” & you’ll see a list of swaps you can join sooner. I see “Miss Brenda’s Valentine card” swap closes today (that would be by midnight US Pacific Coast Times)

You could make sure your profile is well filled out. At least 2 paragraphs are required, but that’s the bare minimum.

Also, you use the time to write on/decorate/ find stamp/s for your postcard. Just leave enough room for the address. International addresses tend to take up more space than US addresses.

One last thing, for everyone: It costs .36 cents to mail a postcard in US starting January 24th, 2021 If you use forever stamps, you’re fine. International postcard price will not change. It stays at $1.15, same as for an international 1 ounce letter.

I'm too late :) @VAgardengirlgirl was quicker... Sign-up deadline is on a Saturday. I will assign partners on Sunday after I vetted all participants.

Just a follow up to VAgardengirlgirl...I was reading the USPS rate site and noted that international postcards and letters are now $1.20.


You have to scroll down towards the bottom of the page.

Lucky I sent the postcard to my partner, early Friday morning as we have gone into lockdown for 5 days here in Perth Western Australia. I did forget to put the name of the swap on the card. Didn't have much room at all. I found only one shop in my area that sold postcards and that was a poor selection. I don't know how long it will take to get to the USA. If it can take 9 weeks for my daughter's notice of marriage to reach me over a distance of 30 miles but only 1 week to travel 300 miles, it is hard to say.

I never got an email or notification of who to send my post card to and now I’m being told I missed a deadline?? Please send me a person to send to.
