Partner Assignment

I live in Asia and, thanks to the time zone, I am able to assign partners early on January 9th (Swap-Bot time). Just a heads up in case you are thinking about joining or dropping last minute. 🙂

I hosted this swap in December and thought I would make it a monthly swap. I made a few adjustments, so please read carefully,

The Swap

  • You will have two partners for this swap.

  • Send 5 samples, no repeats, per partner. (You may send the same selection of 5 different samples to each of your two partners if you wish).

  • Each sample must be at least 15 inches (38cm) and be wrapped around a playing card (or similar) that the tape will not stick to.

  • No more than 2 skinny tapes (less than 0.2 inches/0.5cm wide).

  • No plastic deco tape or duct tape.

  • This swap is sender’s choice with the following restrictions: no holiday-themed or cartoon washi tapes unless your partner’s profile specifically requests them.

  • You may consult your partner’s profile for their preferences, but it is not necessary.

  • Don’t forget to include your username and the swap name so you can receive your rating!

  • If your are unsure what to send, consider what you hope to receive and choose accordingly.


  • Participants must have a rating of at least 4.9 with no recent, unexplained 1’s or 3’s.

  • Participants should have a minimum of 5 completed and rated type 2 and/or type 3 swaps.


  • Please rate a 5 if you receive 5 different washi samples from your partner.

  • As this is an international swap, please allow time for shipping.

  • Please message your partner first before rating a 1.

Leave a comment with any questions, concerns, or suggestions.

I created a survey to gather feedback and suggestions for future iterations of this swap. You can access the survey here.

I cannot angel this swap.

Where it says "please send 5 - 15 inch of tape", someone may think they can send tape that is anywhere between 5 and 15 inches long. Hopefully not, but you never know. :3

Great point FrostedPeppermintLolita. I made an edit to make the acceptable length clearer. Thanks so much for the helpful comment! :)
