Are you sure you want to signup for Mail Tag Swap?

Yes, sign me up! or No, I changed my mind.

Hello fellow swappers!

For my first official swap, I wanted to create something newbie friendly and simple. Two activities that I absolutely love are things snail mail and penpal related. So I thought why not create a little swap incorporating both of these amazing aspects? One of my favorite things about sending a letter to a penpal, is including a mail tag. A mail tag is basically a set of few questions that you ask your penpal in order to get to know them a little better. So for this swap, you will be answering some “mail tag” questions & then mailing them off to your partners. It’s a great way to get to know someone, meet potential new penpals, and get 2 easy ratings!

The rules are as follows:

You will be assigned 2 partners each. All you have to do is answer each of the 12 mail tag questions, and make sure to write your answers down in either a nice notecard or a cute stationery sheet of paper (you can choose to type your answers if you'd like). After you’ve written or typed your answers down, grab an envelope and decorate it. You don’t have to go all out, just get a little creative with it and make it pretty so that your envelope can stand out in the mailbox alongside all of those annoying bills and spam mail. 😊 You can use washi tape, stickers, magazine cutouts, pieces of scrapbook paper, colored pencils, hand drawn doodles, paint, stamps & ink, etc. The options are endless. (Optional: You can also include a short letter or a few questions of your own in hopes that your swap buddy will write back. If you do this, make sure to include your address so your swap buddy knows where to send the reply 😊.) When you’re finished, make sure to include a small note with: 1) Your swapbot name, 2) the name of the swap, & 3) the day it was sent. After that, seal the envelope, mail it off & voila!

Mail tag questions:

  1. What is the best place that you have been to? Why?

  2. Three things on your bucket list.

  3. If you can have one wish, what would you wish for?

  4. What made you smile today?

  5. A fun or odd fact about yourself.

  6. An interesting fact about the area you live in.

  7. Who is your biggest inspiration? Why?

  8. A favorite quote.

  9. What is one food you can’t live without?

  10. One fear that you have.

  11. A favorite memory from your childhood.

  12. Something you’re looking forward to in 2018.

So to recap:

• You will have 2 partners.

• You will have to answer ALL of the “mail tag” questions.

• Make sure to include a small note indicating who the mail is from.

• And lastly, don’t forget to decorate the envelope! 😊

A few last things to note:

  • If your swap buddy has met these requirements, make sure to rate them a 5!

  • Remember to send your answers by the due date.

  • Also remember that this is an international swap, so bear in mind that the postage might vary.

  • If you have any questions, comments, or concerns; comment them down below or send me a message 😊

As I said, I will be letting newbies join, so long as you have a well filled out profile, not just a sentence or two. As for rated swappers, you must have a 4.9 to participate and no recent 1s or 3s. I have the right to ban anyone who I find suspicious or does not meet these requirements. I will be checking profiles. I'll also angel if needed, after you have firstly contacted your partner, and rated them a 1. With that said, please don’t flake on your partners! I want this to be a fun swap, so let’s try to keep it that way. Happy swapping everyone, and happy holidays! 😊
