I've tried to make the items on the list very lightweight so that this should still be fairly inexpensive to ship, or at least it's up to you whether you pick a lightweight or heavier item. This is the Internationl version, there is also a US & Canada only version too!

You must be an upstanding member of the Cheap Postage Swaps, Tags and Fun group to join! I will remove any participants that have a rating lower than 4.8 and/or have any 1's from the past six months.

You will have one partner. Please try to get ALL of the items on the list, but you are allowed to skip two at the most. The items you're sending are useful items, this is not a hunt for junk!


* a blank postcard from your city/state/province/country
* something funny
* something you got for free that is USEFUL and mostly green or purple
* one ATC based on your partners profile
* an altered envelope that YOU made
* something with the swap-bot logo on it
* a new stamp of any denomination
* something you've written (poem/letter/short story/etc.)
* something from January 2008
* something that weighs exactly 5 grams
* a challenge for your partner
* a picture of something you find "odd"

You should include a list that tells your partner what everything is (which does not count as "something you've written"). One item cannot count for two on the list! All items must be mailed through the postal service, none should be sent via email.

Any comments/suggestions? Please message me!

I can't figure out how to fix the formatting without having to retype everything. Everything is just about there though, just a few letters are missing on some of the words. When I have more time, I'll edit it. Any questions just ask (a pm to @choke will get answered much faster than a question posted here though).

Why does the "new stamp of any denomination" have to be new? To look fresh and nice, I suppose? Because I don't think that for most of swappers there's much difference whether my Latvian stamp is new or used... Just being nosy. :D

gives the completely selfish answer

I had hoped to get some new stamps from another country, I have a lot of used stamps, but no brand new stamps. Something different I guess. That and if I received from the USA I could obviously use them :P
