How much PC we have to send?

Ruthshi 05/20/2011 #

We're just going to send only one.

If possible, I would like mine in an envelope. I am watching for now. Thanks in advance.

I prefer mine in an envelope - a guaranteed heart if it is unwritten in an envelope. I also prefer store bought cards if possible :)

DesertFurwheat 06/ 3/2011 #

I prefer handmade cards--they are just so lovely and one of a kind. I don't mind if it's written or in an envelope. Just like getting them, that's all.

Just signed up for this one. I prefer Naked, stamped & dated with something written on it. That's what a postcard is supposed to be! Frankly, I don't understand sending a postcard in an envie. That's goofy! LOL

I would like to join this swap if I am not expected to send my partner a PC in an envelope. I don't like sending my PCs that way because I feel it defeats the purpose of sending out PCs. But I guess it's sender's choice...

evieroz 06/ 4/2011 #

it is senders choice and I plan on sending mine naked and written on.

TerryF 06/ 4/2011 #

I just love how everyone still makes special requests when the host has made it very clear that it is sender's choice as to purchased/handmade and envie/naked. Gee, if you don't like the rules of this swap, then don't join. lol

Hear Hear to @TerryF

The sender may grant the request of the person (naked or in an envelope), yet it is still their choice if they are going to.

I will send mine naked because sending in an envelope is 300% more expensive here than sending naked (no kidding here).

Sounds fun. Have a super day!:)

Vianna 06/ 5/2011 #

I understand why there are "special requests": Some collectors want only specific postcards, and receiving the cards inside an envelope allows exchanging them, should they not fit the specifications. Also - and I say this regretfully - the US Postal service is very inconsiderate of postcards sent naked thru the mail. More often than not, they arrive scratched, bent, ripped or with yellow barcodes across the front. Such indignities ad no character to any postcard. May I suggest that if you have specific requests you address them to the SENDER - when participants are assigned. Email them immediately, before they get a chance to send the card, and nicely state your request. Most of us dont mind accommodating, if we can. I find that participants dont refer to this preface page at the time partners are assigned. In the end, however, the swap is as described by its host(ess) and joining means abiding by those rules. I hope this helps.

I hope my partner likes to receive Alaska PC ;)

DesertFurwheat 06/ 6/2011 #

I'm just wondering when we might get assigned a partner...this is my first swap and so I'm kind of in the dark a bit. Will I receive an email or a message on swapbot?

Ruthshi 06/ 6/2011 #

You will receive a swap notification and a reminder in your email when the swap is about to end. No worries, I will assign partners very soon.

DesertFurwheat 06/ 6/2011 #

Thank you for your help!

JennJenn 06/ 7/2011 #

I love any kind and type of postcard.

jj9jj 06/ 9/2011 #

I would love any type of postcard. I hope you will all check out (and sign up for) my swap 'PCs for Back to School' which involves you sending/getting a postcard from both a swapbot partner - and one of our 6th graders in September!

LENORE 06/13/2011 #

Would. Love any kind of post card. Thanks for swapping!

saunjune 06/13/2011 #

I am very excited! This will be my very first swap here. :)

Ginger 06/13/2011 #

I prefer mine naked as b/c I collect them and add them to my album as I get them. It's not as fun to look at if it's empty and unstamped.

Syn1226 06/14/2011 #

I prefer an envelope, please

HappyPassion 06/15/2011 #

sheepish-look - where & how do i put the image above on my own site :P

LENORE 06/25/2011 #

I have already received my card!

OrangeMama 06/27/2011 #

Sorry, I still have not sent mine due to Canada post strike, but it looks like it's ending, so I'll be able to make in before the deadline.

HappyPassion 06/29/2011 #
