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

I also really like TCPN Quotations: http://www.cybernation.com/victory/quotations/

Thanks! I have added that to my list to post in future quotecard swaps.

This sounds great! I just finished filling out my profile (yeah...newbie...sigh) so check it out and let me know if you think I'm ok!

Your profile is fine, Anna - a good example to other newbies! :-)

Great idea! I've been trying to match quotes with some of my photos for a calendar; this may be the extra kick I've been looking for! I hope a lot of people join (sign ME up) - this looks fun and easy! Gina

I love art postcards mostly. Please no modern art. I also love illustration art, cats, husky dogs, dogs, elephants, exotic birds, film postcards for example: Amalie, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and see profile for more examples. Bicycles, (not the motorcycles), VW (the car), and any unusual ones.

I'm open to what you pick but my heart is with HOMEMADE postcards.

Who do I send to? Waiting for addresses! :o)

Sharlzie 03/17/2009 #

my 3 cards are on their way to my partners in the USA & Canada.

Robinn, if you look at the yellow "Swap member options" box at the top right of this page, there is a link "See the partners you send to". Click there to get your partners' names, addresses and email addys. Above it is the link to click once you have sent your cards, and below it is the link to click when you receive cards and need to rate your partners.

Robinn 03/20/2009 #

d'oh! Thanks! This is (obviously) my first swap with swap-bot!

blacklovelythang 03/23/2009 #

My postcards are on the way to the US. It make take awhile.

It is now more than 2 weeks past the send by date for this swap. I will be contacting the people who have not yet marked Sent and their partners. 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.
