This is a relatively inexpensive but absolutely delightful swap for our group members who enjoy sending, receiving, and/or collecting all sorts of stationery.

If you'd like to join this swap, please make sure you have several things listed in your profile that will help your partner find and/or design stationery for you that suits your own personal style and tastes. Just be sure that you include favorite colors (if you have them) and a large variety of ideas for themes or subjects you like (e.g. if you only collect one very specific type of stationery, like only panda bear notecards, or a specific brand of kawaii, this is probably not the swap for you).

All group members maintain well-filled-out profiles and meet the requirement of at least a 4.98 rating to join. In the unlikely event that it's necessary, I will angel this swap after you have attempted to contact your partner and honestly rated a "1" for a no-send.

Here are the rules:

As with all of our swaps:

รขโ„ขยฅ Read through your partner's complete profile for ideas of themes you can send. The idea is to send your swap partners things (in this case, stationery) related to their interests that will make them smile :)

รขโ„ขยฅBe certain to check for your partner's dislikes and avoid sending them, so you don't unintentionally spoil what would otherwise be an absolute delight (e.g. sending fun touristy postcards to someone who lets us know that s/he only likes to write long pen-pal letters and has no use for postcards)

You will send your partner 3 stationery items (see the list below). No two items should be the same. These should be sent blank inside an envelope, for your partner to use. Please try to respect your partner's preferences. Each of the stationery items you send should be in a theme or of a type inspired by your partner's profile. You can even personalize them for your partner if you wish (which can be a lot of fun), but that is not required.

Stationery items can be purchased or handcrafted/embellished with care for your partner (hence the type-3 categorization), and should be in new or like-new condition. Please send something of a quality you would like to receive.

Each of the following counts as one stationery item:
* one folded notecard with matching/coordinating envelope
* one classic flat notecard with matching/coordinating envelope
* 2-4 sheets of letter-writing paper with matching/coordinating envelope
* one fold-up letter/envelope set
* one note/memo pad
* one high-quality postcard
* ten personalized return address labels
* five personalized swap cards
* three colorful/designed/decorated/personalized envelopes of mailable size
* one unused bubble envelope, cushioned, tyvek, poly, or rigid mailer
* six full-sized colorful/designed/decorated address labels with a blank space for the "send to" address area of the envelope or package
* one sheet of envelope seals
* one sheet of airmail/postal/happy mail themed flat stickers
* one full roll or four 16" or longer washi tape or deco tape samples
* one rubber stamp
* one stick of sealing wax
* a pencil pouch
* a nice quality pen

In order to receive a 5, your 3 stationery items should meet the above criteria:please rate anyone a 5 as long as they meet these criteria. Hearts are of course at your own discretion.

We will have 2 full weeks after partners are assigned to choose, buy, and/or create our stationery items. As always, please do not sign up if you can't get your swap ready to send out by the send date. Remember to include a note with your name and the name of the swap.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Have fun swapping! รขโ„ขยฅ
