Don't you just love receiving this really chunky snail mail? An envelope that is so full it must have been difficult to close… Then this swap is for you ;-)

We'll be sending one decorated envelope (at least regular size, bigger is ok) that is well stuffed with things your partner might like. Make sure the envie is nice and fat ;-)

Things you could add are:

  • stickers
  • recipes
  • small crafted items
  • (carved) stamps
  • postcards
  • home made envelopes
  • pens
  • recipes
  • ATC
  • stationary
  • tea
  • and anything you think your partner will like.

Please check your partner's profile for (dis)likes! Also add a small (longer is of course ok) note for a personal touch.

As this is a Type 3 swap and we don't want any flakers, the minimal rating is 4.9 with no unexplained 1's or 3's. Newbies are welcome to join, but please keep in mind that this is a time consuming swap. I reccommend starting with a small/newbie friendly swap. You'll need a well filled out profile to join.

I would love to do this but ive only just joined swapbot. Can I join or not ?? Xx

IdlersDesign 04/13/2014 #

It's ok, but please keep in mind that this is a big swap. Maybe it's a better idea to start with a small/newbie friendly swap.

rachyroodles86 04/13/2014 #

Ok .. thankyou very much!! I have joined to do some newbie friendly swaps but not to many there of my liking like this one... I love snail mail lol xx

Anyone want to swap??

HisDarkMaterials 04/13/2014 #

@jesswigley yes!

abshanghai 04/16/2014 #

Hi! Just wondering if there is any limitations on costs or how many to send in an envie... i.e. how many postcards or stamps etc.


GomadCreations 04/16/2014 #

Hello,can you please let me know what size of an envelope we have to send?

IdlersDesign 04/16/2014 #

@abshanghai no, just make your partner happy with a nice and stuffed envie. It's good if you would be happy to receive it.

@ GomadCreations; the minimum is standard size (greeting card size). And again, it's ok to send if you would like to receive it.

IdlersDesign 04/17/2014 #

Wow, so many nice people have signed up for this swap already! Only (almost) 5 ratings, a few newbies and from so many different countries; I'm excited!

Jesswigley 04/18/2014 #

i just have to let people know im not new i had an old account but i forgot the pass when i came back from my holiday so this is an new account but it's still me.. x

IdlersDesign 04/18/2014 #

@jesswigley what's your username for your previous account?

dtilt13 04/18/2014 #

so you can use a bigger padded envelope, not just a large mailing envelope??

IdlersDesign 04/19/2014 #

Sure, as long as it's decorated and stuffed ;-)

kittyprincess 04/19/2014 #

Hi, I reallyyyy want to be part of this swap, can you please tell me how to do the profile, I have some stuff in my profile but I've seen others profile and they are really long but I don't know how to mine and I don't want that to stop me from doing this swap. Help!!!

IdlersDesign 04/19/2014 #

@kittyprincess you can join the newbie helper group where you can find help for your profile. Or have a look in the forum. I'm sorry, it's not my specialty either..

kittyprincess 04/19/2014 #

Its ok, I did it, it was not hard at all I wad just not looking, my profile is officially done 😊

kittyprincess 04/20/2014 #

When would you assign partners?

IdlersDesign 04/20/2014 #

I can only assign partners when I get the notification. That should be tomorrow somewhere. I guess that's because today people can still sign up and with all the different countries there are quite some time differences. I think swap-bot allows to assign partners as soon as it's april 21st in all countries ;-)

Bcital 04/21/2014 #

I am technically a newbie. Just joined in March. I've done 2 small ones. But I don't see the join button on this one. Are newbies not allowed?

IdlersDesign 04/21/2014 #

@Bcital yes newbies are allowed,.but maybe you were late; partners have been assigned so the swap has started! I'll probably organize another one soon, so please join then.

kelz84 04/21/2014 #

yeah looking forward to this one. of to check my partners profile out now. thanks for allowing me to be part of this :)

IdlersDesign 04/21/2014 #

You're welcome, have fun!

samandlevi 04/21/2014 #

I can't seem to find my partners address. Can someone direct me to where it might be? Thanks so much!

IdlersDesign 04/21/2014 #

In the right upper corner there's a yellow square where it says "see the partners you send to". In the same square is also the option to click on when you've sent and the option to rate your partners. Please pm me if you still can't find it or if you have other questions.

IdlersDesign 04/21/2014 #

Wow, we already have some senders; you guys are quick! :-)

dtilt13 04/23/2014 #

I'm so excited, I sent my envelope today! I truly hope it makes it there ok, it is going so far(which is the exciting part also)

Really hope my partner likes what I sent and has fun

IdlersDesign 04/24/2014 #

If you're excited, I'm sure your partner will be as well! ;-)

MissMissy 04/27/2014 #

Hey, I am just wondering in case this happens. What shall I do if my partner does not send?

kittyprincess 05/10/2014 #
