Want to beef up the variety of your postcard collection? Want to start building a postcard collection? Then this swap is for you!

Send 1 postcard to 20 partners. There is no theme to the swap - it is sender's choice. Handmade, ad, vintage, touristy, etc, are all peachy keen. The idea is to all receive a variety. Please send them naked (stamped and without an envelope).

Please do write at least a short note on the card if you can. Seeing as how you'll have 20 partners, it is up to you how much you write, but even a sentence or two would be nice. MAKE SURE you include your name, user name, and name of the swap on the card somewhere.

When you receive your card, please rate based on the fact that you received your card, not whether you like the card, as this is a sender's-choice swap. Give hearts as you see fit.

Please do not be thrown by the cost of postage. If you send 4"x6" cards, that's 20 x 0.29 = $5.80. Many swaps call for international packages to be sent that cost way more than that. I myself have sent a US swap that cost more than $6. (Please note that if you send an oversized card, you have to put a 0.44 stamp on it.)

What it comes down to is, you can't put a price on a happy mailbox. I know getting the mail is my favorite time of the day. Wouldn't at least a few days of an overflowing mailbox be worth the postage cost?

I am giving this a long Sign-Up time in order for enough people to join. But I am greatly looking forward to it! You'll only have a week to send, but since this is Sender's Choice, you can get your cards ready to go before partners are assigned, address, and then send.

Usual swap rules apply. This is a USA only swap. Users must have a rating of 4.9 to play, and I will ban anyone with questionable 1's or 3's. I am going to be banning throughout the sign-up process so I can assign partners faster. Newbies are welcome as they might be trying to build up their collections (but do have a few ratings so far)! I expect NO FLAKERS to join, but if necessary, I will angel.

Rock on, PC-ers!
