Blue Postcard Swap
Swap Coordinator:smadronia (contact)
Swap categories: Postcards 
Number of people in swap:75
Location:International
Type:Type 2: Flat mail
Last day to signup/drop:April 16, 2016
Date items must be sent by:April 28, 2016
Number of swap partners:1
Description:

For this swap, you will send 1 postcard to 1 partner. The postcard must be blue. Store bought, Zazzle/redbubble/custom printed cards, ad/free cards, and handmade cards are all acceptable, provided they meet are of good quality.

The postcard does not need to be 100% blue. I hesitate to set a percentage, because it's difficult to judge exactly how much of a colour is in a postcard. However, the amount of blue, and the obviousness of it, should be such that when your partner looks at it, they should go “I bet this is my blue postcard swap” before they turn it over.

Still confused? Please see the comments for examples, both good and bad. If you have questions, contact me. If you can take a photo or scan of your postcard, even better.

Newbies accepted into the swap. Must have a filled out profile. How filled out? Your profile should include a little bit about you, likes, and dislikes. If I don't have to scroll to read it all, then it's too short. I recommend a list of likes and dislikes, one item per line, not to pad the length, but to make it easier to read.

Established swappers: 4.98 or better, with a filled out profile. Excessive 3 ratings will be considered on a case by case basis, along with 1 ratings, especially if they're owed to active swappers.

I reserve the right to ban anyone, for any reason, at any point before assigning partners.

What makes the unacceptable cards listed above no good for this swap? Just wanna make sure I understand and follow the rules before I sign up. Thanks!

If you look at this, you'll see the blue is not the focus of the card. blue bike on yellow wall does not scream "blue postcard"

Ahh thank you! I didn't think to click the links..just saw the words! :)

I have a fairy post card with a cornflower, and the colour is mostly blue. Is that acceptable?

Unfortuinately I can't tell you without seeing the card. You will have to use your judgement.
