I did this regular postcard swap a couple of years ago and stopped at #10 so I thought I would start it with #11. I will continue as long as there is interest and I will try to do them twice a month.

This is for everyone who loves postcards!

You will have 3 partners. You may send any type of postcard you want. For this particular swap we will be sending Store Bought only. No handmade, free/advertisement postcards. It can be of anything (open theme) as long as it is store bought. On the back just write a little note telling why you have chosen the postcard.

Be sure to write the name of the swap as well as your swap-bot name so your partner can rate you.

Anyone with a rating of 4.9 or higher may join. You must have atleast 1 rating to join, sorry. No recent no-sends (within the past 2 months). If you feel you have received an unfair 1 rating recently and would like to join pm me and explain. You also must have a filled out profile. When time comes to assign partners anyone with ratings lower than 4.9 or those who have unacknowledged 1 ratings will be removed from the swap. It doesn't take much to send me a pm explaining any negative ratings.

Also please be sure to rate your partner when you receive your postcard. If you do not receive within a reasonable time contact your partner before rating. Feel free to contact me if there is any problems or concerns.

Please keep in mind when waiting for your postcards of where they are coming from. International postcards or pkgs can sometimes take several weeks before arriving. Just because the 2-week reminder comes up does not mean you HAVE to rate them. If you haven't received contact your partner and discuss it. If it is being sent overseas then allow extra time before assuming it is lost. This is suppose to be fun and I would hate for someone to receive an unfair rating over a simple postcard. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding this. Thank you!

Most importantly, lets have fun!!!

Hi ladyb: I know you indicated "store bought only" but I was wondering if Zazzle postcards are permitted? Thank you! :)

ktk8 - you need to have done at least 1 swap and gotten a 5 rating to be able to join.

"Anyone with a rating of 4.9 or higher may join. You must have atleast 1 rating to join, sorry"

at least that is what it looks like to me.

ktk8 - you need to find a swap where beginners are allowed, get the swap completed and get a rating from it. You'll have to do some searching to find one where beginners are allowed. Good luck!!!

Thank you @miissc you are correct. I may open the next one to unrated swappers but for this one you must have been rated for atleast 1 swap and thank you @8catlover for helping @ktk8 out

@Fiddlefaddle I would say that online postcards would be ok to send for this one since they do fall under the "bought" category but you may want to check your partners profile to see if they state they absolutely hate zazzle and the like.

I like Zazzle postcards! If it is from Vintage or Retro sections especially! :)
