Recycle cardboard food boxes into postcards for your partners. Postcards must have a note (could be a quick note) about yourself to receive a 5 rating. You will have two (2) partners to send to. Postcards must be sent naked (without envelope) and stamped.

Postcards can be altered but your partner should be able to know what the original package was for.

Must have atleast a 4.9 rating. Newbies allowed with well-filled profiles. I will check profiles before assigning partners.

USA only for this one. I will be setting up an international version in the next few days.

Is there a particular dimension and/or thickness for it to be a post card?

Usually postcards are 4x6 or 5x7, I'm not sure about the thickness as I've actually sent real photographs as postcard also. Please check with your post office if you have any questions about your postcard.

Thanks for guides! I was mostly curious about whether or not something thin like a cereal box would need to be mounted onto something else to be use-able. Thanks again! :D

I send cereal box cards a lot and they are perfectly fine without being attached to anything. They're way thicker than regular postcard paper.
