It says 3 partners but the description says 1. Which is it going to be?

AndreaJ 12/24/2009 #

thanks, spcake for spotting that and letting me know. I've updated the description.

I know I am a newbie, but where do I get the names and addy's for the people I send to. There is nothing in my message box.

TerryF 01/ 7/2010 #

The host has from January 16 until the 22nd to assign swap partners. When this has been done, you will get a personal email from SB directing you back to this page. In the top righthand corner will be a box where you can click on a link to get your partners' names and mailing info, as well as a link to their profiles.

Just to be clear, what does it mean for a postcard to be "naked" ... don't use an envelope?

couchart 01/ 8/2010 #

Hi LambdaCalculus. You are right, naked means no envelope.

lillinda3 01/ 8/2010 #

Thank you Terry.Much appreciated.

AndreaJ 01/ 8/2010 #

Thanks, Lillinda, for helping out on the explanations. Everything you said is what my answer would have been. I haven't been checking the comments as often as I should. If anyone has an urgent question, don't hesitate to PM me.

It has been awhile since I sent a postcard out of the country; can anyone tell me how much it costs to send a postcard from the USA to any other nation? I can't remember and I would like to save a trip to the post office if possible. Thanks!

FROGGY42 01/ 8/2010 #

It's just under a dollar for most European countries. I think either 96 0r 98 cents.

mamajoy 01/ 8/2010 #

Canada is $.75, Mexico is $.79, everywhere else is $.98. Hope this helps.

mamajoy 01/ 8/2010 #

Note: They the USPS treats a postcard like a first class letter to all other countries.

OddBall7 01/ 8/2010 #

Thank you all for the help! ;-)

Here are some on-line sources for postcards. I have used Pomegranite and was very pleased with what I got. http://pomegranate.stores.yahoo.net/ http://www.zazzle.com/postcards http://www.changingworld.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=5&osCsid=33792ea8fe06a4be77728fc0263bf7d4

I'd love you to write on my postcard. I love them that way.

ruthnbob 01/12/2010 #

I want to join the postcard group as that is what i enjoy. Just do not seem to know how to get that on my profile. Thanks.

AndreaJ 01/14/2010 #

Joining groups is different from joining swaps. The easiest way: if you see a group you're interested in in someone's profile, click on that link which will take you to the group home page. There you can read the description and click on the 'join this group' link.

Hi there,

I sent my postcards out this morning. The post from New Zealand can be a little slow. If you don't get a card, please let me know and I will resend.

jessmarie 01/18/2010 #

One of my partners, yrret107, has a blank profile. I like to send postcards my partners will like, but without a filled-out profile it's impossible to know what to send. I'm taking a shot in the dark here.

Kiie 01/19/2010 #

Will send out tomorrow, I am sending out viewcard from my country :)

yrret107 01/19/2010 #

@Jessmarie hehe. That's me. I'm new to this whole thing. Didn't know there was a profile section. I just saw it. I'll try to update my profile section.

couchart 01/21/2010 #

I sent my cards yesterday. I sent handmade cards, so I hope they make it through the postal system okay.

FiWebster 02/ 3/2010 #

I sent my 3 cards out at the last minute, right on the deadline. Now I have an e-mail saying I haven't sent out my cards. What does that mean? Am I supposed to have logged in my mailing somewhere? Sorry--hopeless newbie. :-)

FiWebster 02/ 3/2010 #

oops--silly me. I just found the link to click to say that you sent your items.

KarlaKC 02/ 4/2010 #

If anyone gets a flaker for a partner, I'm happy to send a postcard to you. I just realized this swap was supposed to be mailed on Monday and here it is Thursday! But they're gone today. Noticing the participants, I see a few other "Not Sents" but they may be like me and just haven't realized the swap was due out or they may have sent their postcards but forgot to mark them as "Sent". I do see someone who has "Not Sent" and has a 1 rating though, so AndreaJ, I offer my services to you, the swap coordinator, if you need me to "angel" a postcard to anyone. :)

FiWebster 02/ 5/2010 #

I feel so dumb. I just realized I didn't put my username on my postcards. I signed them "Fiona Webster," my real name, which is in my profile. Does that mean the recipients will have no way of rating me?

FiWebster 02/ 5/2010 #

oops--silly me for the second time. I just realized that we get a ink for rating the people who sent us postcards. Lucky thing, given clueless newbs like me. :-)
