What is an inchie?
If you're new to inchies, don't worry! They're easy to try and make.
It's a piece of art that is exactly 1 inch x 1 inch wide (2.54 cm x 2.54 cm) on sturdy backing.

Swap requirements
For this swap, you'll send 5 inchies to 1 partner. All 5 inchies should incorporate a postage stamp/part of a postage stamp. They don't have to include whole stamps, since inchies are pretty small. It should be recognizable that you've used a stamp, but don't be afraid to get creative. Any country's postal stamps, used or new, are acceptable.

Not allowed
These will not fulfill swap requirements:

  • putting a postage stamp on a plain background
  • using thin printer paper as the only surface for your inchies

I like using clean food packaging and cutting it up to use as backing.

Participant requirements:
Profiles will be vetted before I assign partners. I will be checking for a history of late rating, late sending, or other issues.

If you're new to Swap-Bot and inchies, you must have completed and been rated for at least 5 type-2 swaps.
