International is always welcome as this is a cheap way of traveling without packing!

Must have at rating of at least a 4. If you have more than one no send, please do not join. New members are welcome but must have your profile filled out. I also reserve the right to ban anyone I feel is not reliable.

All postcards will be postmarked so if you like your postcard in an envelope sorry.

Please write "State pc swap" on the cards before you send them out!

Please allow up to two weeks after this has closed to rate your partner if they are outside of your mailing area (country)

Contact me if you have any questions. Thanks for signing up!

So is that one per or three per partner?

brandigirl72 05/15/2007 #

That is one card per partner. :o)

Hi brandiredding72. This sounds great. Just a little confused about the following:-

"All postcards will be postmarked so if you like your postcard in an envelope sorry.

Keep in mind that the 'due date' is the date by which your envelope must be postmarked, not the date they must be received by."

So are we to put them in an envelope or not?

Thanks, Samantha

brandigirl72 05/15/2007 #


Thanks for pointing that out. No envelopes. I will correct that now.

Woo hoo! I missed this swap when it was first posted and I'm thrilled brandiredding72 contacted me with the link. I love, love, love this sort of postcard swap. The word "state" also means "a nation or territory considered as an organized political community under one government" so this makes this swap so international. Weeeeee!!!!!

brandigirl72 05/21/2007 #


Thanks for joining us!!

cooan 05/24/2007 #

Ummm... so just to get this straight! I'm Canadian, so I could send something about my state as in nation... and could I also interpret state as the equivalent of a province?

brandigirl72 05/25/2007 #

Sorry, I forgot international doesn't have states. Provice would be just fine.

Dibrittain 05/26/2007 #

B3ntButN0tbrok3n 05/27/2007 #

funny you should post this one... i just went and bought some "state" postcards the other day figuring id need them soon good timing (:

Sweeti8286 05/27/2007 #

Does it have to be store-bought? Or can it be handmade? I've taken pictures from travels around my state, so I thought it would be neat to make a collage PC.

brandigirl72 05/28/2007 #

You can do a homemade state postcard. As long as the state name is on the front.

brandigirl72 05/29/2007 #

Please make sure you have your profile filled out before the swap closes!!! Thanks!!

nicole 05/29/2007 #

brandigirl72 05/30/2007 #

LOL....I know I can't wait for this to end either...lol

brandigirl72 05/30/2007 #

Would anyone be interested in another swap like this???

Craftlover10101 05/30/2007 #

Brandi, I might be, don't know yet have to see how things go after this weekend. I have my cards ready too. I bought 40 yesterday and more today. Not sure how many today. But I stood there putting all of their cards in order lol. The rack was a mess and I was trying to find more of a paticular card I wanted to send to your kids so I ended up working on it for like half an hour or more. The manager walked up and asked if everything was ok. I said Yep, just have a problem with things being out of place so I'm fixing them. He looked at me, smiled, said have at it, lol and walked away. Next thing you know someone's calling over the intercom for some code and security lol. They were probably putting all of the cameras on me lmao. I just wanted more of that one card. You'll see when I send it to the kids.

brandigirl72 05/31/2007 #

I can see it now "Heather gets arrested for straigtening unorganized postcards. Not only did she get arrested but by the sheriff's"....lol

mammi53 05/31/2007 #

I received a card today from Linda in Arizona. Thank you, I love the sky in the photo. Those are the kind of sky's I take my big blanket outside with me and lay out in the grass and just watch them roll by. :-)

lvpoohbr2 06/ 4/2007 #


I had the same problem. Someone told me to check the truck stops. They had quite a few. I also found some at one of the little independant postal shops. I hope you are able to find some. Ü Syndee

user7931 06/ 5/2007 #

I sent out my postcards yesterday, the 4th, forgot to sign my name but really, who's perfect?

ncpelican 06/ 5/2007 #

Hi, I got my postcards out in the mail today - When I signed up, I thought this will be easy - Not so - I went to all kinds of stores 12 to be exact before I could find ANY postcards. I couldn't believe it - There are always postcards in every kind of store imaginable. One store - the girl said, "what is a picture postcard." Boy did I feel old. Anyway, I did find some at a drugstore in Greensboro and I did buy extras and I do know where I can go now. JUDY

brandigirl72 06/ 5/2007 #


wow, you sure did have problems finding postcards. I hate that!! :o)

brandigirl72 06/ 5/2007 #

Got 2 cute postcrads from Sallie today. Thanks Sallie...your the greatest!

lvpoohbr2 06/ 6/2007 #

To those who are sending postcards to me: I leave for vacation today and have put a hold on my mail until the 18th. I won't be able to respond or rate anyone until then. Sorry. :(

goddessofhellfire 06/ 7/2007 #

Frankcheez & lvpoohbr2! Same here had to go to a couple of truck stops & a little local bookstore.... Never, had this much trouble... & we are a resort town! very weird! Guess i will have to get into action!!! all mine are sent... I didn't see a rateing system when I went in so if I botched it please let me know! swapbot is still a little weird to me!

Craftlover10101 06/ 8/2007 #

Hi MangoGypsy, I got your card today. Thank you for writing so much information on the card. I enjoyed it very much. Because of the card and what you wrote I have to tell you that my girlfriends daughter just had back surgery yesterday. She's like 14 yrs old. She just got a new horse and got bucked off and apparently broke her back in two places. So I will be going to see her Monday. She's such a wonderful, beautiful little girl, and loves all animals. And is great on horses. Such a freak and very sad accident. But from what the dr's have said she will be fine. Well as fine as any one who's come out of back surgery. Thanks Again Heather

rockymtmama 06/ 9/2007 #

traveling hawkeye, citizen blue, gbnaabennett, I have just sent your cards; I found them on my desk yesterday under some other papers...my preschoolers have recently developed an uncontrollable urge to bring in anything -and everything- they find in the mail box -whether it be going out or coming in!!! LOL!!! Guess the post office will be seeing alot more of me in person until the littles get the hang of outgoing v/s incoming :)

MAT 06/10/2007 #

Diane Thanks for your great Tennessee Postcard. We have been to the smokey mountains and hope to go again soon. Many thanks Mildred

user7347 06/12/2007 #

Thank you, Heather of CA and Michlle of UT for the post cards you sent to me here in Oregon! Michelle, how can the Utah state bird be a seagull? No ocean there, may you have seas! LOL Sounds like the seagulls took care of the crickets in 1848...neat story! Heather, from the post mark it looks like you're from the San Bernadino area! Deserts near you? Thanks again, I'm still waiting for one more! This was fun!

brandigirl72 06/14/2007 #
