If you've ever been in my FAST swap, you have some nice notecards, and if not, I invite you to check it out.

this is an international swap, and open to newbies-as long as your profile is filled out, and complete.

This is a "I'm gonna use a Notecard" swap, if you have one. Or you can use regular stationery if necessary,

As the title of the swap suggests, I want you to write a little note, "Just to Say Hello". Tell your partner a couple little things about you, or things you enjoy.

Include your return address, and ask your partner to write back. Hopefully, you will find a great penpal, maybe from the other side of the world, perhaps!

And that's it! You will have one partner, with couple weeks from now, to think about, and maybe even write it, and another couple weeks to get it in the mail.

Hi, I am looking forward to this swap. Could you please define Notecard, to make sure we are on the same page. I am from Australia and I am thinking it's a folded card with an illustration on the front page. What is the minimum dimension size of the card. Thanks.

gramsbuttonbox 12/29/2017 #

hello - thank you for your note - - yes, a "notecard" is a folded card, with a design or picture on the front (facing page).

If you are unsure, or confused, you can take a piece of decorated scrapbook paper, and fold it, then cut it to fit into the envelope.

If you do not know what I mean, you can use a sheet of regular stationery.

there is no minimum size - usually the notecards from the store are about 4" x 6 "

the requirements of the swap, require you to write a nice little note, so please do so...and have some FUN with it1

Hi, I'm so new here! Really excited to be here!!! Can't believe I have not heard about swapbot till an hour ago! Been doing postcrossing and loving it. Can someone tell me how long do I have to wait before I'm assigned a partner? Thanks xx

gramsbuttonbox 01/29/2018 #

hi, thank you for asking - - partners are assigned randomly by swapbot, usually about the day after the signup deadline -

i was in the hospital, and moved the dates ahead -

If this is international and with flat mail, I think it would take around 3 months to come to China... (if you are in America or somewhere across the globe)

How do u do this how do u get the address to send ppl stuff

Lora82 02/13/2018 #

Hi I'm new here and looking forward to this

gramsbuttonbox 02/19/2018 #

the day after the signup deadline (march 24, in this case), the host (me) will have a link, to assign partners, in a swap. I spend a couple days prior to this, and with this many swappers, maybe a couple days after - checking over profiles (to make sure you HAVE ONE) - etc, then I click the link.

I do not actually assign partners, that is done randomly by swapbot. Once that is done, then you will have a link inside the yellow box at the top right of the screen, to "see the partners you send to"

About a week later, you will have the chance to rate your partner, and I hope you will do so - there will be likely some newbies who are eager to get a number after their name.

If you have any questions, please just ask, or message me. and most important, have FUN!

gramsbuttonbox 02/19/2018 #

welcome to swapbot - I am honored you chose my swap, to initiate you to this great hobby, and I hope you will make lots of great swapping friends!

gramsbuttonbox 02/19/2018 #

hopefully mail would not take months to make it anywhere in the world - if you do have a partner overseas, and you have not received anything in a month, PLEASE contact me, before rating them a '1' - - it is your choice what you want to do, hopefully, even if you do give that rating, it will be with a few words that you might change it, if the swap arrives.

patience is sometimes the higher road that we can take...I hope nobody gets angry at me, for saying this...

Hi, I have just signed up to swap-bot and excited to be here. Looking forward to this.

Phyllis123 02/23/2018 #

I would like to do this will u give me a partner or how does it work

gramsbuttonbox 02/27/2018 #

partners are randomly assigned by swapbot. the dayafter the signup deadline, i will have a link on my screen, to have partners assigned. you will then have a link in your "yellow box" at the top right of the screen, where you can "see who you send to" - - and then, a couple weeks later, will be another link, for you to RATE your partner - - i hope you will remember to do that, it is what gives swappers the number behind their name

have FUN!

gramsbuttonbox 03/ 3/2018 #

most of my swaps are open to newbies, with only ONE rule: you MUST have a detailed and completed profile - since it is my only rule, I am quite strict about it...

NEWBIES, please make sure you spend some time on your profiles, in order tor you to remain in the swap.

and thanks

gramsbuttonbox 03/ 3/2018 #

I have always said - when I open your profile page, I should have to scroll down tor read it....

ArtsyEm 03/12/2018 #

I'm brand new here, but this sound right up my alley, thanks!

MarHelene 03/13/2018 #

How are you?

CraftyGnome 03/13/2018 #

I am brand new and I am very excited for this swap! Thanks for organizing it!

gramsbuttonbox 03/14/2018 #

welcome, and warm greetings to you - I'm very happy that you joined my swap, and I hope you have some fun with it! Most of my swaps are open to newbies, with only ONE rule - you must have a complete and detailed profile.

1koolkrafter 03/14/2018 #

Hello- I am new to Swap-Bot and are very excited to be here. I did complete my profile but I am not sure what all I needed to say or put in there. I mainly focused on my craft interests and what I like to do. I am looking forward to getting started with swap groups that I can join and participate in and getting my first ratings!

gramsbuttonbox 03/16/2018 #

hello, and welcome to swapbot! I hope you have lots of fun, and many lots of wonderful swapping friends!

your profile is a pretty good start - but I would like you to add some more to it - there are some excellent tabs in swapbot, or just come up with your own. You can write about anything y ou think a new friend might like to know - anything from pets, where you live, favorite anythings, like colors, candy, tv shows, movies, books, family, kids, jobs, places you've lived or would like to,

if you are still unsure, you can check out other's profiles, for some ideas,

we all edit and tweak our profiles, over time, as our interests change, or we discover some new hobby or craft, - and it is all good.

please take care of this right away,

I look forward to reading what you will write. gramsbuttonbox

Disneyteatime 03/27/2018 #

Do we have to wait until April 20th to mail out?

gramsbuttonbox 03/28/2018 #

Absolutely not...you can (and should) send your swap as soon as you get the address....April 20 is the LAST day you can mail it!

Thank you for that great question
