SWAPPING NOTES

IMPORTANT: Nearly all of my incoming mail has been coming to me with slices on the bottom edge of the envelope so I recommend putting a bit of tape at the bottom edge of the envelope to keep things from spilling out.

DID YOU RECIEVE SOMETHING FROM ME WITH POSTAGE DUE? I am MORTIFIED. Let me send you the amount due and something special. Just PM me.

If you don't receive something in time from me, please email me. I will never flake. Creating and SENDING mail is my favorite part of writing and art/crafts. I have social anxiety and this is how I connect with people so it's important to me to maintain good friendships and swap partners/pen pals! You

My swapbot habits: 99% of the time I rate as soon as i receive a swap. Check in with me if you haven't been rated. Every couple of weeks I go through my sent swaps and I check in with my partners to see if they've recieved my mail.

Comment: L<3ve it!!! The stickers were so fun on there! Thanks for joining my swap! <3<3<3
Response: I’m glad you like it and glad it got there! I just realized i hadn’t heard from any of my partners and was about to email each of you. It took a longer time than usual to get to you. I used extra postage so i hope postage wasn’t due. I had a incident with postage due recently and now I’m a little skeptical about what post office expects what postage wise. It seems like none of them treat it the same.

Comment: Hello, I received your swap! Thank you so much for the really cool Stranger Things pins. I love them, unfortunately there was postage due of $1.46. Great swap just make sure to always put enough postage or place the items in a bubble mailer instead. Thanks :)
Response: Oh no! I’m going to send you the amount today. I weighed it on my scale and put the amount due for a non machinable envelope plus extra. I was sure it was enough to cover it plus more in case the recieving post office had different standards than mine which i know can happen sometimes. I’m surprised they wanted to much more. I really do apologize. I’m surprised it got there so quickly too. Thank you for rating me a 5 despite the postage due.

Haha, glad you found the postage link amusing as well as useful! He is very opinionated...that site has saved me a lot of headaches, though! Love your list of insect and spider likes - would love to swap ATCs sometimes if you're interested. :-)
