About Me

For some reason, nobody reads my Postcard section so I have added to my intro. Please do not send big cards, smaller is okay. But not bigger! Thank you!

A little information for postcard swaps: Please no oversizes cards‼, only 148mm x 105mm (A6) or 4 x 6 inch. I keep all the received postcards in a photobook, so bigger then that will not fit. Could you also be so kind to write on the card the date you posted the card?

Hello Swap-Bot'ter!

My name is Remco ♂ and I am 29 years young. I am a freelance graphic designer / DTP-er and a fulltime dad. I take care of a five year old son (Sem ♂) and a 19 months old girl (Nova-Lila ♀). My "hobbys" are watching lots of movies, art-house to blockbusters, I love them all. I really like printed shirts (like teefury.com riptapparel.com etc) and when I have the time I read books.

I don't follow a religion, but I did went to a christian school as a child. I am open and respectfull to all religions/believers. I am against hate or disaproving something because of a religion. God said love your neighbour, that means everyone ;-). There is nothing wrong with man-woman / man-man / woman-woman relationships. Just stay away from childrens!

I do believe in love and respect.

If you want to know more about me, please ask me, and I will update my profile.

what I pledged badge

I pledge to other swap-bot members to:

Rate for every swap i take part in.

Rate as soon as i am able to get on line after swap is received.

Rate Fairly, I will only give a 1 rating if a swap hasn't been received and that no contact has been made from the sender. I promise to pm member first to give them the chance to resolve the situation first.

I will only give a 3 if i feel that the swap didn't meet the requirements and that the partner choose's not to correct the swap.

I will try and leave a message on all ratings to state what i received and what i was happy with, even if its just a thankyou.

I will not use slander or badmouth anyone when given a rating, facts is all that is needed when rating a 1.

☼ Save yourself some money and send me a selfmade card made out of packaging boxes. Cereal Boxes / Cookies Boxes / Anything strong enough to send as a card. I really like typhography so cut something out with words on it. 148mm x 105mm (A6) or 4 x 6 inch. Write on it the date you send it, and what the product/brand was you made the card from.

Here is a great blog about it: http://www.infarrantlycreative.net/2011/04/make-your-own-postcards.html

Flakes and Angels

I got flaked by, in the swap..

Users who are truly Angels:
* djcamp04 - I got a beautiful christmas card and awesome recipe cards!
* kevsbabe - I got two b/w cards with old pictures and history information about them. Thank you! Love it.

Favorite Music

I'm a real music lover, so it is hard to say what is really my favorite music. I listen to 8-bit, pop music from the 80s and 90s, metal, indierock, dance music, and more..

I'm a huge Maria Mena fan.. but not the kind of fan that wants to know what color of socks she likes to wear ;-).

More information on the music I listen to can be found and explored at: Last.fm Or check out my loved tracks to see what songs I really love. Warning! I really have a weird and not logical taste.

Here is a little list of artists I listen to:

♫ Anberlin ♫ Alice in Videoland ♫ Bill Haley and his Comets ♫ The Cliks ♫ CSS ♫ Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip ♫ Destroid ♫ Does It Offend You, Yeah? ♫ Drowning Pool ♫ Electrocute ♫ Fats Domino ♫ Girl Talk ♫ Goose ♫ Hadouken! ♫ The Hot Toddies ♫ Imelda May ♫ Jack Peñate ♫ Kontrust ♫ La Pegatina ♫ Ladyhawk ♫ Ladytron ♫ Little Richard ♫ Lykke Li ♫ Maria Mena ♫ Mount Sims ♫ Muse ♫ Niña Dioz ♫ Pornophonique ♫ Robots In Disguise ♫ Royal Republic ♫ Saliva ♫ Static-X ♫ Those Dancing Days ♫

Favorite Books

I love the books by Robin Hobb and Raymond E Feist. They are the only fantasy writers I read. I mostly read thrillers. Every year there is a bookfair traveling through the Netherlands where I buy lots of books (for very little money). I do not follow writers. But I do try to find books by writers I like. Matthew Reilly is one of them.

Favorite Movies

Thrillers, Comedy, Arthouse, Indie, Blockbusters, Action, Anime..

Kevin Smith movies.
The Matrix.
Back to the Future.

Favorite Television

I'm a stay at home house dad and a graphic designer / dtp-er. In my sparetime I like to read a book or watch a movie.

So watching television has become a time-problem and I stopped watching a few years ago. There are still shows I like to see and follow but can not find the time for: The Big Bang Theory, Sopranos, Lost (I'm still at season 3 and a half), Nip/Tuck (still at season 2), Six Feet under (stopped at season 3).

Favorite Crafts

Yes.. I understand there is a lot of Craft making on this swap site. To be honest, i'm not a crafter ;-). I don't find the time for it. The only 'crafting' I do is digital on Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator.

Meet the family

So there is Me, the big Daddy!

Then there is a Mommy, Here name is Maria and she is born in 1983 and she works 5 days a week for a wine company doing the administration. We are in a relationship since 07-07-2007 (not married, but "going steady").

She has a son called Sem who I take care of. I am his Daddy :-) We met just a short while after he was born so he does not know (yet) that I am not his birthfarther. We are waiting untill he is old enough to understand. He was born in 2006.

Maria and I have a daughter who was born in 2010 and she is called Nova-Lila.

Wishes (for gifts) and dislike

This one is for the Swaps were we/you/me sends gifts.

Things I like to get from swaps:

  • I'm a proud father/dad/daddy/papa etc. So anything about being a dad is a nice gift!
  • (Small) Lego items. Can also be from other brands then Lego itself.
  • Comic Books from Marvel Comics (new, old, used).
  • Transformers Comic Books or other items.. Just anything.
  • Spider-Man Comic Books or other items.. Just anything.
  • Hello Kitty, also just anything. For my daughter offcourse ;-)
  • Pokemon! Anything. I'm NOT a Pikachu fan. And I do like Squirtle more then the rest.
  • A sealed pack of sigarettes from unknown/not big brands, I prefer the "light" ones.
  • Magazines that are about graphic design / colours / printing.
  • Birth Cards.
  • Business Cards from yourself.
  • Business Cards from places you like (restaurants, bars, shops, museums..) with an explanation why you like it. (I like to travel and maby I can visit the place).
  • Teabags.
  • Postcards (that I can use to send in Postcard Swaps or on Postcrossing.com).
  • Where is Wally/Waldo items.
  • Old-Time Advertising posters or postcards. Example

  • Clothing for my daughter. Dutch size 92 or higher and US/UK size 2T or higher. (She is now growing into 86/24 m). Colors: Purple, Lilac & Pink. It does not need to be from a well known brand or be new. It only has to be clean and without damage.
  • Bookmarkers (free or paid).
  • Music (something from you're region or a band you really like). Click here for my loved tracks
  • Handkerchiefs. With a nice design/illustration on it.
  • Socks!
    Europe size: 46.
    UK size 12½.
    US size: 12.
    NO white socks, I believe a real man does not wear white socks!
    Pink and other 'girly' socks would also be a little bit weird for a guy to wear ;-)
    I would like to be suprised by a patern or print, I don't want a simple sock with nothing on it.
    I don't have any christmas socks, so those would be nice to send me.
  • Stickers. But no school stickers or reward stickers. (Like "good job" and so).
  • Christmas Stickers! For some reason they are very hard to find in stores where I live :-(
  • Books. But because I already have lots of big books, please send me short/little books. English or Dutch.
  • Small shower or bath stuff made for MEN (hotel bathroom type size or larger).
  • Perfume for MEN, because i'm not a girl :-P
  • NES games. (Europe / PAL)
  • Movies. But it has to have english subtitels or language (or dutch).
  • Anime! Original language but please with english/dutch subtitels or I won't understand it ;-)
  • Souvenirs and postcards from your country or city.
  • Recipe Cards without a Recipe (I had to google to find out what they where, and now I want them!).
  • That cutting thing you use to make round corners in papers/postcards.
  • Kawaii stuff, I see them on Flickr with the swap-bot tags and its all so cute and lovely!
  • Something cheap!

Dislikes: ☹

  • Uhm.. white socks!
  • Dirty items.
  • Things smelling of smoke. (My stuff will never smell of smoke).
  • Girl stuff, unless its for my daughter.

→ Transformers (Generation one and so)

→ Cool design/typography

→ Lego

→ T-Shirts with prints on them like Teefury.com and Riptapparel.com
