Hi So this is a paper letter and Stanley you send to your partner and once you receive and tae him pn travels ,do you contact your partner via email with a write up and attached electronic photos or are you than supposed to pay to print traditional photos and send them back on the honor system? I am hoping you say we email his travels.

When my younger cousins done Flat Stanley in school, it was using snail mail and so I would want to do this with snail mail. Printing out digital pictures seem to be less expensive than most of the type 3 swaps. Email ruins the charm of the project.

What is supposed to be mailed by the send date, the flat Stanley or Standley and his travel journal? Or are we suppose to accomplish both in the two weeks time. These were so fun when doing them with the kids, hoping you get a lot of people INTRESTED, would be fun to have lots of travels

Just the Flat Stanley, two weeks is barely enough time to mail internationally. Yoh are welcome.

I am a little confused. So, we are basically making a flat Stanley for our swap partner, right? We are waiting for a Flat Stanley to come in the mail. So, when we receive one, we do the little travel journal and then send to the person we made the Flat Stanley for? We are sending twice to our partner? I just want to be sure. It sounds like fun.

You send one to your partner, and then you do the travel journal for the one sent to you.

Do we send the travel journal via email? We aren't given the contact details for people who send to us, so I assume we PM them asking for that? Or do we include it in the Stanley we send out?

I put the address on the card, but if you lose it ask the person for it using pms. The travel journal is still snail mail. Maybe next time it will be email.
