Do you like sending and receiving vintage flat mail? If so, you should join this swap!
One thing I would like to clear up right away is that all of the items you send must be vintage (as in around 20 years or older... this means early 90s (or 1994 if you want to get really specific) and older). No reproductions, "vintage look" items, collage sheet printouts on printer paper... you get the idea.
You will send a minimum of eight different vintage flat items to each of your two partners (for a minimum of 16 pieces total). You are more than welcome to send more than eight to each partner.
Your items must be from at least four of the following categories, but you can of course send more of a variety if you choose:
Please include a note with your Swap-bot username and the swap name. Some people participate in a lot of swaps and the items for this swap could pass for another swap's items. Also if you think there's any chance of your partner not counting your 8+ items as coming from 4 different categories, make a note of which ones they are.
This swap is sender's choice, but please check your partners' profiles for dislikes and avoid those if at all possible. Your partner will be happier if you send things s/he would like, but that's up to you.
I have set the minimum rating at 4.95. No recent unexplained 1s or 3s. (This means if you have 1s or 3s I need to see that you've responded to them.) No newbies so if you're new get at least one flat mail swap rating in before the signup deadline and then you won't technically be a newbie anymore! Please have at least a paragraph/list or two about what types of things you like and what arts/crafts/swaps you do because some people try to send their partners things they will like. I will be checking profiles and may ban anyone I think may end up flaking when the day to assign partners comes. This may include people who are late on swaps or haven't logged in for almost a week.
One last thing: I am not sure how successful this swap will be and can't say if I will host it again. (Hosting public swaps is not a very easy thing for me, mainly because of checking people's profiles and communicating with people who are iffy... and sometimes the backlash I get for banning.) If it's been a while after this one is over and you'd like to take over you're more than welcome to.
Okay this is really the last thing: If you are unfortunate enough to have a flaker for a partner I will angel for you, but first you have to contact your swap partner... and then if things don't work out rate them a 1. Then message me.
EDIT: Please note I have merged a few of the categories above because they are very similar.
