This is one of a monthly series of quotecard postcard swaps held to share a little zinger of wisdom/humour/etc with your partners. It is a pretty basic postcard swap. The only catch is that it MUST contain one of your favourite quotes, but that can be either an old friend or a newly discovered favourite. The postcard can be handmade or commercial. If it is handmade, you can incorporate your quote into the design if you prefer; otherwise you must write it on the back of the card.

Please say where the quote is from or give the credit where it's due. You may use quotes in languages other than English, but if you do, please include a translation for your partner. Do not forget to include the swap name and your user name on the card!

You will send out 3 of these cards, one to each partner, possibly across the globe. They should be postmarked! Please DO NOT send in an envelope.

I will ban if I see multiple no-sends or have any other reason to believe you will not be a good swap partner. Newbies are welcome!! (but must have a filled out profile.)

Happy swapping to all! Contact me if you have any questions.

Note: I have taken over this series at the request of @nicole who created it and hosted it for over a year.

This should be a fun, low-pressure swap, so don't feel you have to do a lot of research unless you want to do that.I have a Notepad file in which I save quotations that I like, so I don't usually need to search for them for my Quotecards, but when I want quotes on a particular theme, I put:

[theme keywords] quote OR quotation

into a search engine. I get links to some general quotation sites but also ones which only have quotes on that theme, which often have many more than the general sites.

Some general ones:

The Quote Garden

Think exist

Quotations Book

Quotations Home Page


The Quotations Page

The Quotations Archive

Do you send the postcards every month for a year or is this a one time deal?

spinjenny 01/17/2009 #

Each swap is separate, so you have to sign up again for any month in which you wish to participate.

Spinjenny, please check out my profile and tell me if it is complete enough. I was rejected from my first swap - a quick postcard swap--because it was not filled out enough. Thanks!

spinjenny 02/15/2009 #

@mling - I PMed you last night before I saw your comment here this morning. You really need more detail - see that PM.

xiwang 02/15/2009 #

Spinjenny, is my profile completely enough? This will be my first swap :) Let me know, thanks!

spinjenny 02/16/2009 #

Your profile is fine, @xiwang :-)

AndrewLips 02/16/2009 #

match us up plese!

spinjenny 02/17/2009 #

@AndrewLips - hosts cannot assign partners until the day after the last sign-up day, and then it takes quite a while to check 93 participants in order to minimise the risk of flaking. Please give hosts some time before chasing them! :-)

The next swap in the series, Quotecard Postcard #22 is now open for sign-ups.

My pc's were sent out 2/25, but I wasn't around a computer so I marked them sent out today (2/26).

MissTequila 02/27/2009 #

Ah, i'm gonna be late on this one...sorry guys

spinjenny 02/28/2009 #

I suggest that anyone who knows they are going to be late PM their partners to let them know personally too, as people are usually more understanding if they are kept informed.

penpallingfool 03/14/2009 #

I am resending to my 3 partners with a quote sorry for the mix up hugs Leann

spinjenny 03/15/2009 #

Thanks, Leann! We can all make mistakes; what makes a good swapper is fixing them. :-)

spinjenny 03/16/2009 #

It is now more than 2 weeks past the send by date for this swap. I am contacting the partners of the only participant who has not yet marked Sent. If anyone else has not received their postcards within a reasonable time or been contacted by their senders to explain why there is a delay, please try to contact your partner before giving them a 1 rating, and contact me if you cannot resolve it between you.

Please PM me if you need any help, as I will not be checking these comments any more.
