"You choose the theme" Postcard Swap

Launch gallery slideshow

Swap Coordinator:badgerlore (contact)
Swap categories: Themed  Postcards 
Number of people in swap:23
Last day to signup/drop:May 20, 2009
Date items must be sent by:May 27, 2009
Number of swap partners:3

For this swap, you will be sending 1 store bought postcard to 3 partners.

I know alot of people collect certain postcards, so this swap was born. It's inspired by the lovely postrcrossing.com tag forums. So the way this works is that if you sign up for the swap, write in the comments about 5 themes you would like to receive one of. For example, I would write:

Horses, Art, Japan, Owls, Weird.

Please keep your themes simple so that your swap partner can have many options. I will be making sure that you left your comment with your preferences before I assign partners so there's no confusion.

Please send postcards naked - that is, not in an envelope, stamped so as to show its travel - unless your partner specifically asks otherwise.

This swap is international, but international postage for postcards isn't bad at all.

Please, no flakers. We want this swap to be fun for everyone. You're welcome with a rating of 4.8 or above. Newbies are also welcome, as postcards are an easy way to get ratings.
