Launch gallery slideshow

Halloween ATC Swap
Swap Coordinator:artsyjana (contact)
Swap categories: Artist Trading Card (ATC) 
Number of people in swap:127
Last day to signup/drop:September 6, 2008
Date items must be sent by:October 10, 2008
Number of swap partners:2

Halloween and the weeks leading up to it are by far my favorite time of the year. To celebrate, let's create some fabulous ATC's to share. 2 partners, 2 ATC's each, for a total of 4 ATC's. Any medium is welcome. They don't have to be perfect, but please spend a bit of time on these. Slapping on a few stickers or an embelishment or two is not what we are looking for.

Please note that this is a Halloween swap, so if you are offended by spiders, witches, monsters and ghosts, do not sign up. Pagan images are also allowed (but not required).

Requirements : You must have been rated on at least 3 mail swaps, which means newbies have plenty of time between now and the sign up date to get a few ratings. You must not have any unexplained no-sends. I'm not setting any rating requirements, but I will be checking everyone's profiles and people with a poor swapping record will be banned. Last requirement is that you must rate your partners.

This swap is international, so don't sign up if you are unwilling to spend an extra dollar or two on postage. Part of the fun of collecting ATC's is receiving them from all over the world.

You will have just over a month to create 4 ATC's, but since they are not profile oriented, you can start anytime. I have set the send by date for 3 weeks prior to halloween so that they have enough time to arrive, and hopefully we'll be able to enjoy them for a bit before Halloween arrives. If your partner is overseas, you may want to send earlier, but that is not required. There is another swap (not hosted by me) similar to this that has a later send by date if you'd prefer that.

Remember, this is supposed to be a fun swap, and I want everyone to receive, which means that flakers are not welcome!!!

Wow! I'm so happy that there have been this many people sign up. I wonder if we can make it into the top 10 list?

WhetzelMomma 08/16/2008 #

You made it! That's how I found you!

Congrats on making it to the top 10. I'll sign up as soon as I clear a couple of swaps off my list. I LOVE HALLOWEEN!

What does ATC stand for?

artsyjana 08/26/2008 #


ATC stands for Artist Trading Cards. They are miniature works of art, measuring 3.5 x 2.5 inches. They can be made of any material. The only rules are that they must follow the proper measurements (size of a standard playing card) and that they are only to be traded or given away, never sold.

Bizzles are all of your swaps US only?

Solarts I noticed your :Boo! Halloween swap" is US only. Is the "Halloween Spooksville" swap international?

My ATCs are ready to go as soon as I learn who my partners are.

WhetzelMomma 09/ 9/2008 #

Mine went out today!!

HHC 09/10/2008 #

Mine are in today's mail!

PostMuse 09/21/2008 #

I have mine going out today, however the images on my Flickr account don't do the cards justice... I am not good at taking pictures of small things, and scanner won't work on dimensional items. Witchy Smile and Spider Snacks are on their way. One of my partners has removed her contact information, so I'll hold her envelope for a while to see if she updates. Don't want to pay the postage twice.
