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 I won't be checking to see who's naughty and who's nice. I'm counting on you to let me know about any problems. If you have a question or problem, please let your partner know and give them a chance to respond. If can't resolve the issue, then let me know and I'll do what I can to help work it out.

  • Senders Please send your items on time and remember to mark your swap as "sent". Please let your partner know if you are going to send late. Many swappers won't mind a bit of delay as long as keep people informed. Before assigning partners for future swaps, I will remove anyone has not marked an item "sent" for a previous swap. If you want to be in the next swap, then send your items and mark them as sent.

  • Recipients If you haven't received anything a week or two after the swap deadline, please let your partner know. If you still don't receive an item (or a satisfactory response), leave a "1" rating then contact me to send an angel replacement. I will angel only if you rate the swap appropriately. Accurate ratings are the only way I can weed out unreliable senders from future swaps. And that's good for everyone.

It may be worth noting that in the US the maximum thickness is 0.016 inch thick (not sure how to accurately measure that, though...)for a regular postcard stamp, and a regular forever stamp mails anything up to a quarter inch thick. And with that, a question: is this for thinner cardboard, like a cereal box, or for thick cardboard like from a shipping box?

Most people send cereal box type cardboard. You can send thicker postcards if you put on first class (not poscard) postage.
