A Travelling postcard is just that. It travels with each person leaving their mark ach person leaving their mark. I will be doing the full card format allowing us to have more destinations.

Directions: If this is your first swap 1 Pick a card that you like ( not too heavy ,or oversized since that requires extra postage)

Write the swap name :LSRUS Travelling postcard for ( insert your user name) At the very top. Try to keep it small.

You will use this template/ to attach to the card ,giving directions . In subsequent rounds please make sure to keep these attached

info template (Thanks again LeaTheShark) https://pin.it/4NNjydB

You can use a paper clip,or plastic/cellophane sleeve

4 . Once assigned your partner ,you will put it in an envelope and send it off

5 Last but not least , once you receive your swap sign it with your name ,country or region and date .Remember try to keep it small. Ideally no more than 1 inch long and 1/4 in height You can use mini labels too. Just remember to keep it small.

Optional : include a little flat extra like stickers,washi samples, extra postcards. Totally up to you

If you have already participated :

You should have your card by now. I have extended the date ,so those getting from outside the country and are still waiting for round 1 can participate.

I will host a round each month. If you are unable to participate ,you can hold onto those cards. You will be able to send up to 3 at a time. Please consider if you are willing to participate on a regular basis. One or two rounds Missed are ok,but if you no longer want to participate ,please return the cards to me,so I can get them back in circulation . My info is in group forum Only one homer will be allowed

This swap is international.

If you are worried about cost of shipping, It is one of the cheapest types of international swaps at 1.20 USD . With subsequent swaps it will still remain 1.20USD. Also for our friends in Europe I know it is affordable too. Only 3 cents more for Deutsche post lol!

Swappers must have done at least 5 non electronic swaps. My biggest thing is making sure you will participate . If you are not really into travelling/collaborative mail,this swap isn’t for you. I will angel if necessary

I have a right to vet swappers and no recent 1s or 3s. From now on,if you missTHREE consecutive rounds ,you will Be banned From all future swaps. It would be appreciated if you return any cards you have not sent on to me OR another member To get them passed on.

Here is a great video on how the whole thing works

travelling postcard how to.


If these scenarios happen :

A. You get assigned and your partner is the owner of the card In your possession

B.Your partner has already signed the card in yourPosession

You will create a new card for you or a member in LSRU . Hold on to the other card till you can pass them on. You can pass a Maximum of 3.

If you have any questions pm me

Are the completed postcards sent back without envelope? In the video it doesn’t look like the two returned cards had postage. Thank you!

@postmuse no they are being sent back in an envelope. This is to allow more names on the card. W/s only fits only a few names . The card I just sent home travelled through 5 countries for a year
