Everyone has postcards that they want to get rid of. :) These cards don't belong to your collection - maybe they don't fit your themes, maybe you don't like that particular card or maybe you've just got a duplicate... Whatever the reason, you want to pass this postcard on. This is pretty easy if it's a blank postcard. But what if it's used, sent written & stamped as many swaps here require?

This swap is for such cards. You'll send to each of your partners 5 used cards in an envelope. The cards must not be old, vintage or B&W (unless your partner has indicated they like these, of course). They must be in relatively good condition - not torn or bent in the middle; other signs of their travel around the world are OK. Handmade and ad cards are not allowed.There's one more thing - if there's a sender's address (or other personal data) on the postcard you might want to put a sticker on it so that you keep their privacy. Personally, I think this is the right thing to do when you re-send a used card but it's up to you.

If you have many used cards, you may check your partners' profiles to see if you've got something from their wishlist. It's not obligatory though.

I just want to put my 2 cents in here. Those of us who are professional postcard collectors would never black out the address. That can bleed through and destroy the front of the postcard and it takes away from the appeal of the postcard. The address went through the postal system and who knows how many people saw that. It wasn't private like a letter. Just wanted you to know. I joined this swap anyway.

Well, thanks for your 2 cents, it's good to hear other opinions. :) I personally put a sticker on the address (when I see fit to hide it) and this way the front of the card isn't ruined. However, it's up to you how you'll send the cards. What I wrote is a personal opinion not a swap requirement, maybe I should put it in a clearer way. :)

yes, stickers won't damage anything. and differences of opinion are fine :)
