Wouldn't it be great to send a postcard and see where it had been all around the world? Then get it returned back to you after its adventures were over? Let's do it!


Choose a card. A card that you think people would enjoy seeing (however, PLEASE DO NOT USE EXTRA LARGE POSTCARDS THAT WILL REQUIRE EXTRA POSTAGE!). Put your name and address on the right hand side of the card. Put the title of the swap ("Adventures of the Traveling Postcard") at the top of the left hand side. PUT IT IN AN ENVELOPE and send it off to your partner. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Just write your name, username, city, state/country, on the left hand side of the postcard you received in the previous round. Put it in an envelope and send it to your partner! (DO NOT WRITE YOUR ENTIRE ADDRESS ON THE POSTCARD - THIS TAKES UP TOO MUCH SPACE!)


Twice a month, we will have another round. (Sign up when you receive yours from the previous round, start another one in rotation, or contact me, as I may have a postcard that needs to be put back into rotation as well!) When the left side of the postcard is filled up with the names and cities of those that have received the postcard, the last person will stamp your actual postcard and send it back to you.

Only join if you are awesome and a non-flaker. Well-established folks ONLY (50 or more Type 2/Type 3 swaps - although if you have already been in the swap, you will be allowed in even if you don't have 50) and I will ban if I feel that you may be a questionable swapper. I want to do my best to ensure that everyone receives their postcard back! So don't join if you don't think you can commit to it for the long haul, K? I will be checking EVERYONE'S profile. Thanks and happy swapping!

NOTE: Do NOT send the postcard back to the original owner until the left side of the postcard is completely filled!

How many people does a card usually get around to before its sent back to the original person?

AnnieMaxine 04/28/2013 #

I think it would be about 8 - 10. I'm not sure that anyone has gotten there's back that was completely filled out yet, to be honest!

cmdunderground 04/28/2013 #

Ok, thanks :)

The one I sent off for round 7 had 7 people on it, counting me. It didn't have a lot of space left, so i'm assuming that when #8 signs, it's going to go home

this swap is sooo fun! A PC in hand now belongs to Jennifer "Bootses" Hildebrandt US :)

crmc 04/29/2013 #

I haven't received the card from the last swap yet. I just checked & it was sent from Indonesia on April 14, and based on my past mailing experience it may not be here before May 13. What should I do?

maranda222 04/29/2013 #

I have Susanne Aulig's card from Germany and will be passing it on in this swap : )

pne 04/29/2013 #

I got @emilynhr 's card in the post today (Emily Rogers)!

pne 04/29/2013 #

@crmc I'd contact the swap host @AnnieMaxine so she can send you a postcard! I believe she has a couple that she got back (from people who decided not to participate in future rounds) that she would love to get back into the system!

abbyaguas 05/ 1/2013 #

Can't wait for this one! I'm sooo excited :)

EmilyT 05/ 2/2013 #

My first PC was mailed back to me! It went from Denver, Colorado to Belgium, to Michigan, to Avon, Colorado, to California, to Germany, to Georgia, to California then back home :) thanks everyone!

The card I'm sending out this round belongs to Cynthia from VA and next round is Lucine's from the Netherlands

wadesay 05/ 3/2013 #

now that I have completed 50 type 2 / type 3 swaps, I hope I can join this swap :) excited.

Chuchan 05/ 4/2013 #

How can I get 50 complete type 2 / type 3 swaps when everyone kick me from his swap?

AnnieMaxine 05/ 4/2013 #

@ayuPanda There are PLENTY of Newbie swaps available. Just have to do a little searching. This is a more involved swap than most of the others on here...it requires people who are committed and have showed commitment on here by "putting in their time". @wadesay was able to do it...and so can you!

pne 05/ 4/2013 #

@EmilyT Yay! Good to hear that postcards do make it back!

AnnieMaxine 05/ 4/2013 #

I have the following postcards in my possession. (I already put four back into rotation this round, as well...though I will not post the name of those here.) @mcovey , @lusitana , @bungaalangalang , and @snout

I just want to confirm that we are supposed to give a rating when we receive a postcard....is this correct? It let's your partner know you received the card, otherwise, you don't know if got lost in the mail.

AnnieMaxine 05/15/2013 #

Yes, @Cranberry Please rate when you receive the card from each round.

KarlaKC 05/20/2013 #
