**** Please note that this is an INTERNATIONAL swap. ****
US POSTAGE INCREASE JANUARY 24TH!!!!! PLEASE CHECK TO SEE WHAT THE INTERNATIONAL RATE IS BEFORE YOU SEND A POSTCARD OUT OF THE UNITED STATES! It was not clear whether or not the intl rate for postcards is increasing. The rate for postcards sent within the United State is increasing to 36-cents on January 24th, 2021. If you send an odd shape, the non-machinable charge is increasing to 20-cents. (Note: Check with your post office - you may have to upgrade to first class postage 55-cents, AND THEN add the 20-cent non-machinable charge if you are sending a round card or something else other than strictly postcard size).
REMINDER Please contact your swap partner first to try to work out any issues. If the two of you can't get things back on track, then let me know and I'll see what I can do.
This is a Cardboard Postcard swap (CBPC). You will send one postcard. Do not use an envelope.
The postcard should be made out of ANY kind of reused cardboard saved from the trash/recycling. Please use only CLEAN cardboard. Additional decoration is sender's choice, and is strictly optional - only a chunk o' cardboard is required. Please include a short message to your partner - it's optional, but more fun don't you think?
The maximum postcard size which can be sent for the first class letter rate is 6-1/8" x 11-1/2" (USA only - international rules may vary).
The maximum postcard size which can be sent for the postcard rate is 4-1/4" x 6" (USA only - international rules may vary). If you have any questions, please PM me - I don't check the comments often.
Some Housekeeping Info
Thanks so much for joining my swaps! It's a lot fun for me. They've grown in size to the point where I need to take some steps to control the amount of time that it takes to manage them. I want to keep it light-hearted. Please remember what's at stake here is a few pieces of cardboard (or anything close to it), so don't overthink it!
