THE IDEA:

The idea is to design your own Postage Stamp. Just type in 'postage stamp ATC' in google and look at the images to see a few examples. Consider your blank ATC card as a massive blank postage stamp which you can develop.

Every few weeks I will organize a new postage stamp ATC swap based on a different country. Look up some information on the country of your postage stamp ATC swap and design your postage stamp ATC as if it would be a typical postage stamp coming from that country. For example; you can use flag colors, famous monuments, a famous person, local fauna & flora,...

Don't forget to make your ATC look like a real postage stamp - incorporate some typical postage stamp features such as cost, country name,...

PREVIOUS AND CURRENT POSTAGE STAMP ATC SWAPS:

This time the postage stamp ATC swap is themed: JAPAN

All postage stamp ATC swaps will be listed on my website on the Postage stamp ATC's page:

My website

(Left column -> Swaps -> Swaps Hosting -> Postage Stamp ATCs)

IMPORTANT:

Please put some time/effort into your ATC. Send something you would be happy to receive yourself! Let's make this a great ATC swap :)

METHOD:

Make your ATC on standard size (2.5 x 3.5 inches). Please use a paper that is a little bit nicer than plain copy paper and, if the paper is not very heavy, please mount it on a firm backing.

Put the appropriate ATC information on the back of the ATC: title, number, artist information...

Ensure the ATC is securely inside the envelope before sending!

Send to your partner :)

REQUIREMENTS TO JOIN THE SWAP:

A good rating (Above 4.7, no unexplained low marks)

Newbies accepted on the condition they have filled in their profile!

Just send me a message first if you are unsure!

I will ANGEL when needed

I will remove anyone from the swap who does not meet the above requirements before partners are assigned.

Happy Swapping!

Note 1: I would be very happy if you could send me a picture of your ATC. All pictures will be put on the swap-page on my website with a direct link to your profile/ blog/ website.

Note 2: On the bottom of the swap page you can fill in a poll to indicate which country you would like to see next in the Postage Stamp ATC swap. + you can also fill in a feedback form.

Would anyone be willing to do private swaps for the previous five? Or maybe a catch-up swap ... ? :)

For this issue I would also like to refer people to the catch-up swap which I've made a few days ago:
