This swap is for paper snobs -- those of us who love working with very special paper! Here's your chance to share some of your favorite papers with your swap partners and receive some wonderful new ones in return.
In this swap, you'll package an envelope with pieces of paper (they can be scraps as long as they're usable). The total weight of the envelope should be between .8 and 1 ounce. Please check your weight and add more if it's too light! Make up two packages and send one each to two different partners (you'll make a total of two packages). By keeping it an ounce or slightly lower, we'll keep the postage costs down. The paper can be any usable size, but I'd recommend standard envelope size or smaller so you can take advantage of the 1 ounce postage. The idea is to send a group of wonderful papers.
What kinds of papers should you include? Anything you consider special. They might be handmade papers, Japanese Washi papers, marbled papers, metallics, papers with interesting bits of things embedded in them, special decorative papers used for hand-binding books... anything like that. Just make sure it's something YOU think is special and would love to receive yourself!
This is an international swap. Just think what wonderful papers you might get from overseas! Note: US swappers, I just checked the USPS postal calculator and a 1 ounce envelope to most overseas locations costs 84 cents. Not bad for an envelope filled with fabulous papers!
Anyone with a 4.5 rating and higher may join, but you must contact me if you have more than 1 "no sends." If I see any of these, I will ban you from the swap. Sorry, but I HAVE to protect the good swappers. Newbies are welcome but must provide me with proof of feedback elsewhere (eBay, Etsy, etc) and it must be feedback I can view without having to join a site. And please have a filled out Swap-Bot profile.
Because this is an international swap, I am allowing 4 weeks between the start date and the deadline date. However, because you don't need to know your swap partner's preferences, you can put your packages together ahead of time if desired.
After the swap, please take the time to rate your swap partners.
If you have any comments or suggestions for this swap, please let me know in the comments below. I have hosted many swaps elsewhere, but this is my first swap hosted on Swap-Bot. I'm happy to hear any suggestions!
