This is a stamp swap and this is how it will work.

Everyone when they sign up lists eight "themes" that they can provide 5-10 stamps in. For example, you might list themes like flags, birds, mushrooms, purple, royalty. Try to give a mixture.

Then when partners are assigned, the recipient chooses the TWO themes that they like best, and the sender sends them 5-10 stamps in those theme.

Send stamps of good quality please - nothing ripped, stained or tatty. No more than two of any individual design.

No recent questionable ratings, no unexplained 1s or 5s.

So, in summary:

  • comment your list of themes below when you sign up
  • when partners are assigned, message your partner to ask which of your themes they would like you to send - and let the person sending to you know which of their themes you would like
  • send your partner 5-10 stamps in each of the themes they chose (10-20 stamps total). No more than two of any individual design.
  • don't forget to rate when you receive!

Have fun!

@Helen Either, but if it's off-paper the gum must be removed too.

Sorry for the delay in assigning partners, everyone! I've added a couple of days to the end of the swap to make sure everyone's still got time (though it's a fairly leisurely deadline anyway I think). Partners have been assigned now so see who you've got and let them know what stamp themes you would like!

Itti 07/ 9/2021 #

Sorry guys, bit of a host fail - I just noticed that some people have provided less than eight themes. I should have checked this before assigning partners, my bad :( I've messaged those concerned, so if your partner's one of the ones that hasn't given you enough to pick from, hopefully you'll get a few more options very soon!

Having a huge problem with this swap. It says I've already sent it out but I didn't click that I have. And I'm not able to remove that. @Itti - Is there something you can do about it? Is it a fault in the program? I already reached out to both of my swap partners but I'm waiting for them to get back to me.

Risna 07/10/2021 #

@Itti Never mind, had to refresh the site several times and then the "Ooops"-button appeared again... I guess it was a malfunction on the website... So I'm good now and was able to handle it on my own. Sorry!

No worries :)
