Description:

Welcome 2017!

Send your one partner a black and white postcard. Send naked (stamped & nice note). Ideas-write about where you got the pc, write about you and your week, comment about them or their profile or write anything else. Please write a few sentences.

My intent is for this to be a weekly swap. My goal is to have sign up by Thursdays, assign on Fridays, PCs due 8 days later the following Saturday. Obviously there may be weeks that the assign date may differ but I will try to keep it the same so you know when to look for it. Thanks for your interest!

Black and white for this series is semi-loose-be accepting of this if you join

Black and white can be very obvious black and white photo-type postcards but. They can be the sort of brown and white or cream vintage-look type, they can also have the splash of one color, for example I used to have a b&w London pc and the double decker was the only color, red. If there is a splash of color it should be only one color with the b&w. B&w for this series includes then and now touristy pcs as long as the "then" is in b&w or brown and white, the "now" can be b&w or full color. Pcs can be touristy, artsy, illustration, photo, store bought, zazzle and the like, museum, postcard book/set of removed nicely, actual vintage, reproduction vintage, quote. The b&w card can have a border that is in color that sort of frames the b&w.

No free/ad, no handmade.

I can't think of more examples right now-happy hunting!

Museums, book stores, antique stores, some national parks have selections of pcs! I've also found some on zazzle and I know you can find some nice postcard book sets on amazon- I've even bought some sets used-good condition and they've been perfectly fine to send out in naked swaps.

International, 4.98 rating, newbies allowed, 1's & 3's explained/responded to/working on and I reserve the right to remove swappers if needed. Please only sign up if you're open to receiving a variety of b&w types as explained above, knowing some may be a bit different. I will angel if you need to rate your partner a 1 - contact me if that is happening.

Can the PC be a B&W picture of an animal? I think I sent a London one before but I'm out of those

Any B&W is allowed as long as No free/ad, no handmade. I have used cards from a B&W cat cartoon set, and cards from Animal box art cards. I have been joining these swaps off and on for the last year.

Thank you so much for answering @kssunliver1947 ! Sorry I didn't see the question sooner, @piratejimbob87 hopefully the answer helped, it is accurate! Any subject is great as long as it is b&w ( or sepia, small burst of color, etc)

I'll assign later today or by tomorrow morning my time zone. Waiting to hear back from a few swappers.
