This swap is for those of us who love sending and receiving COLORFUL mail art!

This swap will have 3 components:

  • a creatively decorated envelope. That means more than just a strip of washi tape and a few stickers. You will fully decorate your envelope, front and back, using collage, rubber stamps, drawing, painting or a little bit of all of the above.

  • inside your decorated envelope, you'll send one handmade-by-you creative item. This can be a zine, ATC, altered art card (index, business, playing), other original art pieces, original photography, art doll, bookmark, etc.

  • in addition to the handmade element, you'll also send 3 extra enclosures. These enclosures are meant to be supply-type things the recipient can use to send/make mail, e.g., stickers, labels, extra postage, unused postcard, envelope, stationery, etc. Make it interesting and mix it up (do not just send 3 stickers or 3 labels).

⚠️⚠️⚠️ ALL ITEMS, envelope+enclosures, MUST BE COLORFUL! ⚠️⚠️⚠️
No neutrals, no browns, no washed-out pastels, obviously no plain white....

Roy G. Biv, baby! Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. NEONS WELCOME! Use at least 2 different colors.

Do not come into the comments requesting specific colors. The only colors off-limits are the ones mentioned above. Otherwise this is sender's choice. If you hate neons, purple, red, etc. do not join this swap. You CAN NOT rate down because you don't like the sender's color choice.

In order to participate...

  • You need a fully completed profile that is more than a paragraph long and includes something about YOU (not just a likes list).

  • You must have successfully completed 10 individual swaps involving a creative, handmade component (Type 2 or Type 3).

  • You must be an active SB member for the past 2 months. If your most recent swap completed was 6 months, a year or more ago, you will not be permitted to join.

Other than those 3 points, I will use my discretion and remove any questionable swappers without warning. If you see someone like this in the swap, feel free to PM me a heads up. I appreciate the help.

Should you have any issues along the way, please PM me - I'm happy to help out. I will also angel if the need arises, but only after the non-sender is rated properly.
