Time for a quick postcard swap. You're going to have 2 partners.

1) Go to your postcard stash. Pull out 4 postcards

2) Grab 2 envelopes . 3) Grab 2 slips of paper, write the swap name “Quick Postcard Swap #4 – USA” and your Swap Bot ID on each

4) Put 2 postcards in an envelope, along with a slip of paper. Seal the envelope, and slap a first class postage stamp on it.

5) Wait until partners are assigned. Then, address your envelope and send it off!

If this swap looks familiar, it's because it's done in a similar fashion to the anonymous tea trades @toupti does. I thought it would be fun to do a similar thing, but with items other than tea.

Swap deadline and send off dates are close together because these envelopes should be ready to go well in advance.

Rules: Your postcards need to be two different cards per envelope. If you have multiples, you can make your envelopes the same, because really, who's going to know you sent the same thing twice?

Advertising cards are allowed, but only 1 per envelope.

Zazzle, Vistaprint, and other "Create your own, we'll print it for you" postcards are allowed, but they need to be of decent quality, and only one per envelope.

Handmade postcards are fine, but of decent quality, and only one per envelope.

Store bought postcards are always fine.

Send what you have! I'm not putting 1 card limit on how art/tourist/photograph cards because it can be difficult to get a variety of cards in some places. If all you have is tourist postcards of Mt Rushmore, send those! If you can mix it up, feel free to do so.

Postcards should be in good shape. Dirty, badly damaged, mangled cards don't belong here. I do a swap to get ride of those sorts of cards, so they don't belong here.

4.9 or higher rating, newbies allowed. If you have more than one of either a 1 or a 3 rating in the last 3 months, please contact me before the last day to sign up and let me know. I'll be checking profiles, so I'll see them, but the message makes me feel you're less likely to flake.

If you are a newbie, you must fill out your profile. I don't expect a novel, or for you to fill in everything (your favorite movie tells me nothing). But, I do expect information about you, and some likes and dislikes. One paragraph is not enough, you will be removed. Most of the recent flakers in my swaps have been newbies, if this continues I will not allow newbies to participate. If you receive an envelope from a swapper and you don't feel it meets the requirements of the swap, please contact me.

Anyone who fails to meet the requirements of the swap, or flakes, will be banned from all my future swaps. I will angel anyone who gets flaked on.
