Found Image Postcard - INTL

One ‘found image’ postcard to one Partner.

This is an international swap. A USA only version is also posted.

Simply find an image that you think your Partner will like and glue it to a backing to make it sturdy enough to mail. Put the name of the swap and your swap-bot user name on the back, along with a stamp and your Partner’s address, and mail it off naked. I also like to put a title, the source of the picture, and a short note on the back as well.

The postcard should be made of a single image, that you found in a book, magazine, brochure, etc. with no other embellishments. It is not a collage and no stickers, decorative tape, or artwork should be used.

Taking a look at your Partner’s Profile could help you select a good picture for them. I find the best sources for photos are books. I get damaged books from my library and other sources and give them another chance at life by reusing their photos.

Thanks to Rome @9O96O for allowing me to borrow her swap.

Minimum rating to join is 4.8 but this swap is open to newbies.

I am calling this swap a type 3. There is not a lot of work involved in the making of the postcard itself, but I have been known to spend a great deal of time selecting an appropriate picture.

Thank you for considering my swap.
