This is a Cardboard Postcard swap (CBPC). You will send one card each to 3 partners.

The postcards should be made out of reused cardboard saved from the trash/recycling. Please use only CLEAN, cereal-box type flat cardboard, and no waxed or freezer boxes. Additional decoration is strictly optional - only a chunk o' cardboard is required. This is a Letters and Writing swap, so please be sure to include a message.

Postage from the US to Intl destinations is $.85 for Canada & Mexico, and $1.05 for everywhere else. That should be good for cards up to 6 1/8" x 11 1/2".

This is my first Chunk O Cardboard PC swap to go International. I do like the idea of getting box chunks from other countries. The signup window is only about a week. PM or post a comment if you like the International idea. Should I do both a US and an Intl? Or just go Intl instead of US-only?

If you have any questions, please PM me - I don't check the comments often.

I like U.S. And international. I'll do both but I'm sure some folks would prefer just the U.S. because of postage. I'm so glad you do these. My husband teases me about being cheap for cutting up cardboard for postcards. Now I have a reason to do it!!! :)

I'm good for US/Canada or international. The extra postage is not that HUGE when compared to where your postcard can come from! :-}

I like it! Do both,I'm sure there would be enough interest :)

Yeah, I think doing both is better than expanding one to be Intl. I just put $1.05 on a standard postcard for another swap, and I couldn't help but think that I could have sent 3 US cards for that. It's not a big deal for me but it does add up, and I bet a fair number of people would care about the difference between 96-cents and $3.15.

Being from Canada I have to spend $1.05 to ge tto the states, and $1.80 internationally.
