Quotecard Postcard is a monthly postcard swap held to share a little zinger of wisdom/humour/etc with your partners. This is a pretty basic postcard swap. The only catch is that it MUST contain one of your favourite quotes, but that can be either an old friend or a newly discovered favourite. The postcard can be handmade or commercial. If it is handmade, you can incorporate your quote into the design; otherwise you must write it on the back of the card.

Please say where the quote is from or give the credit where it's due. You may use quotes in languages other than English, but if you do, please include a translation for your partner. Do not forget to include the swap name and your user name on the card!

You will send out 3 of these cards, one to each partner, possibly across the globe. They should be postmarked! Please DO NOT send in an envelope.

I will ban if I see multiple no-sends or have any other reason to believe you will not be a good swap partner. Newbies must have a well filled out profile.

Happy swapping to all! Contact me with any questions!

Note: I have taken over this series at the request of @nicole who created it and hosted it for over a year.

This should be a fun, low-pressure swap, so don't feel you have to do a lot of research unless you want to do that.I have a Notepad file in which I save quotations that I like, so I don't usually need to search for them for my Quotecards, but when I want quotes on a particular theme, I put:

[theme keywords] quote OR quotation

into a search engine. I get links to some general quotation sites but also ones which only have quotes on that theme, which often have many more than the general sites.

Some general ones:

The Quote Garden

Think exist

Quotations Book

Quotations Home Page


The Quotations Page

The Quotations Archive

Thanks spinjenny. I'm looking forward to doing this swap, it's one of my favorites. I especially love domestic cat postcards,moomins. Just an FYI- I couldn't resist but I created a new swap for Nov.1st. called "Make Me Laugh" Postcards. I created one early to give everyone a chance to order or buy their funny postcards. And since the holidays are coming up I'm doing things early. If anyone would like to join please pass the word around. http://www.swap-bot.com/swap/show/23168 Happy swapping.

Thanks, solarts, I'm going to join that one.

I love cat postcards too, but I never seem to see any around here. :-(

I have now created the next swap in the series, Quotecard Postcard #18!. I hope you will all join that one too.

Sent my Postcards today!

spinjenny 10/16/2008 #

LOL, culpepper - it's easy to get confused until you get to know the site. My cards will go out in the morning, though I won't mark sent for a while as it is easier for me to monitor the swap when it is on the main Dashboard page.

Received two of my three postcards today-wow! Thanks StwbyQT and tobiejonzarelli.

All but two of you have marked Sent now, and I'm contacting the partners of those two. If any of you do not receive your cards in a reasonable time (bearing in mind that some are coming internationally), please try to contact your partner before leaving a 1. If you do not get a satisfactory response, please PM me and I'll try to help.
