Please consider sending a larger PC for the full first class letter rate (45-cents: see guidelines below).

The maximum postcard size which can be sent for 32-cents is 4-1/4" x 6".

Some Housekeeping Info

Firstly, thanks so much for joining my swaps, people. 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.

  • Communicate Communicate Communicate If you are going to send late, please let your partner know. If you don't receive an item, please let the sender know. If you run into an issue that you can't resolve, then let me know and I'll do what I can to help work it out.

  • Senders Let your partner know if you need to send late. It's the right thing to do. Please remember to mark your swap as "sent" before the deadline (but only if you have actually sent it!) Before assigning partners for future swaps, I will remove anyone who has an item not marked as "sent" for a previous swap. If you want to be in the next swap, then send your items and mark them as sent.

  • Recipients I'm counting on you to let me know about any problems. I won't be checking up to see who's naughty and who's nice. If you haven't received anything a week or two after the swap deadline, please let your partner know. If you don't get a satisfactory response, let me know and I'll try to help. If you still don't receive an item, leave a "1" rating then contact me to send an angel replacement. I will angel only if you leave an appropriate rating. Accurate ratings are the only way I can weed out unreliable senders from future swaps. And that's good for everyone.

Does this need to be corrugated cardboard or can it be the weight of one from a cereal box? -Jules

Same question as above. :)

Last time we did either!

Any type of cardboard is fine, so long as it's clean/sanitary and it's something you've recycled. Cereal box type cardboard is what most people send.
