NOTE TO ALL: There MAY be a postal strike in CANADA, which could affect our swap!

If you live in CANADA, please be sure to include with your swap, a note of apology...and if your partner lives in Canada, please be understanding, and do not rate cruelly, because of it.

The other option would be to drop from the swap before the signup deadline. This is a very popular swap, and I run it frequently, and would welcome you back!

Thanks! ****Back to the swap details! ****

If you've ever been in my FAST swap, you have some nice notecards. If not, then I invite you to Check It Out!

I ran this swap a couple months ago, and with more than 200 swappers signing up, it reached and held the number 1 spot for several weeks, until it finally closed. I heard from lots of those swappers, asking me to run it again...

So here goes...

This is an international swap, and open to newbies, as long as your profile is filled out, and complete. (A good rule of thumb: when I open your profile page, I should have to scroll down to read it.)

This is an "I'm gonna use a notecard" swap, if you have one, Or you can use some pretty stationery, if necessary.

As the title of this swap suggests, I want you to write a little note, "Just to Say Hello..." Tell your partner a couple little things about you, or things you enjoy.

Include your return address, and ask your partner to write back. Hopefully, you will find a great penpal, maybe from the other side of the world, perhaps!

And that's it. You will have one partner, with time from now, to think about what to write, and maybe even write it, then a bit longer to please be sure to get it in the mail on time.

If you have any questions, please just ask, or message me.

Sorry for the dumb question, but I am from Germany and new to swapbot. What is a note card??? How does it look like? That is not a greeeting card and not a PC... Can you explain pls? Thanx

ScrapLady 05/ 9/2016 #

Grams, I'm bummed that the partner from the 1st "Just to Say Hello"swap I did, didn't write back to me! Maybe this time!!

BalticWind, welcome to swapbot, and please do not worry...there are no dumb questions, I am happy to answer any questions your have. A notecard, is just a folded decorated blank card, that you're can write a little note on. For this swap, it can even be a greeting card, maybe with something like "hello" or "best wishes" written on the card.

You can also use some regular stationery, if you don't have a notecard.

ScrapLady, I'm sorry you didn't get a response....that sometimes happens. I do hope that the partner who had your r name, wrote to you....please let me know...

I'm hoping to get an international person this time!

DaisyNY 05/15/2016 #

BalticWind, a greeting card has a pre-printed greeting already on it while a note card is blank inside; otherwise they are a lot alike.

Hey there, and apologies in advance if these were already answered. I am new to Swap-bot :D

  1. When are you assigning partners?

  2. Do you send the card in registered mail?

Thank you!

gramsbuttonbox 06/ 1/2016 #

Hi, thank you for writing, you never have to be worried about asking questions, and welcome to swapping!

The day after the signup deadline , so in this case, July 1, a link appears in the host's yellow box (upper right)'. After checking profiles, etc, I click that link, and swapbot randomly assigns partners. (The host does not actually assign them).

A link will then appear in your yellow box, to see who you send to, and also, another link will let you rate your partner, when the swap arrives.

You can send your note, just "regular mail", with Normal postage. Remember that this is an international swap, so don't attach a stamp yet.

I hope this helps, and that you will have a lot of fun with this wonderful hobby!

Hi! I'd really like to join this swap, but I'll probably be on holiday when my partner's notecard arrives. What should I do?

I was going to jioon this swap but with the threat of a strike I think I will drop out and try again for the next one. I'm hoping that they come to an agreement without a disruption in service. Chris crispycritter

gramsbuttonbox 06/30/2016 #

Thanks Chris...and yes, I will run this swap again, it is a popular one, and I'm always contacted by swappers to run it again, hoping to find a fun penpal. I look forward to having you join us "next time"

Hello I am excited for this swap and I am new to swapbot. I thought we were going to be assigned a partner yesterday but haven't seen that post. Am I missing something? Please help. Thank you Anna
