I've seen blind surprise swaps before, but none for ATCs so I thought I would give it a try and see if it's fun.

For this swap you will make 1 ATC for 1 partner.

You will select and WRAP (i.e., cover in some kind of paper, envelope, or other wrapping) an ATC before partners are assigned. No cheating and waiting to look at their profile! :)

Make a nice ATC for this swap. There is no theme, and it should (obviously) not be profile specific, but send a nicely made ATC. Go to some effort.

While stickers can be used sparingly, they should NOT be the predominant art. Stickers should be embellishments only and NOT the focus of the ATC. Otherwise, any media is allowed.

New swappers are allowed with well filled out profiles.

Artist trading cards are 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

I believe no one should host swaps they aren't willing to angel themselves. I will angel if necessary, but I screen participants to minimize the risk of flakers getting in. I will remove participants with poor ratings, open swaps, drama, comments, or other swapping history that concerns me at my discretion. If you have poor swapping history and want to participate, please proactively PM me to explain them. Otherwise, I may ban you with no notice if I am suspicious.

This swap is U.S. only on account of postage costs. If you want an international version, feel free to host your own. :)

I know this is a stupid question. Are we to make an ATC and wrap it up or make one to wrap and one not wrapped. Sorry, I don't know what a blind surprise is. Thanks for the help. :)

A blind surprise is something that you choose, and get ready to send before partners are assigned. So for this swap you will choose an ATC and wrap it up before partners are assigned. So it's not profile specific, just random.

The requirement for this swap is one wrapped ATC, but you are of course welcome to send additional ATCs or whatever else as extras if you choose.

@[Hell0Z0mbie] Are you going to host any more of these Blind swaps? I really liked doing it.. :-)

I'm planning on it! It seems to have gone pretty well! :)
