This should be alot of fun. This is a way to send and receive some St. Patrick's Day cards with some neat postmarks.
You will get 3 St. Patrick's Day cards (store bought or handmade - standard greeting card size). Write a St. Patrick's Day greeting/poem in the card and mail to 3 partners. You will in turn receive cards from 3 partners - all with special postmarks.
You will then address them and stamp them like normal to each of your partners. Seasonal stamps are fun, but not required.
Before you mail them, pick a place from below list and put all of these envelopes into a bigger envelope addressed in this form:
Postmaster - St. Patrick's Day Remailing - City, State Zip Code (from list)
And you ONLY change the last line to one of the following:
(ST. PATRICK'S DAY)
Dublin CA 94568 GA 31021 IN 47335 MS 38739 NH 03444 NC 28332 OH 43016 PA 18917 TX 76446 VA 24084
Ireland IN 47545 WV 26376
St. Patrick MO 63466
Shamrock OK 74068 TX 79079
Then you mail the ONE envelope like normal, and the PO you are sending to will do the rest! (You DO need the correct postage on the outside envelope so please make sure you get that correct as just one stamp there will not suffice.) You will have 1 week to obtain, address, and mail your large envelope with 3 cards inside to post office selected.
USA only. 4.8 and up for rating with one completed swap required. No recent 1's or 3's please. No flakers. This is such an easy swap....if you don't think you can meet requirements, please do not join.
*If your cards arrive slightly after St. Patrick's Day due to re-mailing, please do not rate down for this. If you receive a card - rate a 5. Feel free to include a postcard, a sheet of stickers, or a tea bag if you would like - although, it is not required. It is simply a way to do something nice for your partner to get that heart. Smile. If you do not mail as directed and do not obtain special cancellation/postmark - you may get rated down for this. I reserve the right to ban anyone with recent 1's or 3's or if you have not been online regularily prior to swap. I want this swap to be a big success! I cannot angle for flakers.
If you have any questions - please ask! ~~ :)
