A slam is a booklet similar to a deco or friendship book except that each page will have a question on it, and each signer will answer the question. It gets sent from swapper to swapper until it is full, then it is sent back to the person who it was made for.

For this swap you will make 3 new slams to send to your partner. You can make the slams for yourself (so the slam is returned to you when it's full) or you can make the slams for any slam swapping friends you have!

The slams for this first swap can be any theme or style (question, sign if, list etc). Please do your very best and make it a nice slam that people will enjoy to fill in. Slams for this swap must be no larger than 6" x 8".

This swap is open to seasoned slam swappers AND to those who have never created or swapped slams before. But please remember that slams are meant to be passed on, so you will need to pass on the slams you receive in this swap. I will be hosting slam swaps every month on Swap-Bot, so if you don't have any other slam swapper friends to pass them on to quickly, please keep joining in my swaps to keep the slams moving around!

Here is a good explanation on how to make and swap slams: How to make and swap slams (This website suggests using spiral notebooks. But I find they are bulky to send, so for this swap please don't create spiral bound slams. Please only create stapled or stitched slams for this swap.)

Swappers must have no recent 1's or 3's and a well filled out profile. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below and I will do my best in answering them promptly!

Happy swapping!

How many pages roughly?

Neeky8 04/21/2013 #

Usually between 6-12 sheets, but it's up to you! Hope that helps!

Does each person who receives the slam make up a question ffor the next person? Or does the maker think of a question? If the maker decides the question, is this question the same on every page or van the maker think of aa diffetent question for eacch page of the slam?

Neeky8 05/14/2013 #

@Roxswapbot - the maker should write a different question on each page. So if the slam has 10 pages, there will be 10 different questions. It's like a fun little questionaire :) Then as it gets passed around, each person will answer every question. It's fun to see how different the answers can be!
Hope this helps!!

Are these returned to owner once we sign them or do we hold them for next slambook swap held?

Neeky8 05/15/2013 #

@Miange - the slams for this swap will be new ones (that you will make), so they will not be ready to send to their owners just yet. They'll need to be swapped around until they are full. If you do not have any slam swappers, you can keep joining in these swaps here on Swap Bot to keep them moving around. When you receive a slam that has only enough room for one more signer, you would sign it then send it home to the person it was made for.
I hope this helps!! :)
