It’s always inevitable to have a few postcards in your stash from places you’ve either vacationed, someone else gave you from their trips, or got randomly in a swap. I feel weird sending these sometimes. Like the card is from Chicago but I’m sending it from my small town in Mississippi.

I wanted to create a swap and give people a chance to send out those “not from origin” cards.

This can also be a chance to send out cards from museums/attractions/festivals you’ve never been to. I know I can’t be the only one with cards of zoos and museums I’ve never set foot in.


  • International Swap

  • One card to one partner

  • Newbie/Unrated friendly but MUST have a filled out profile

  • Must be a card from a city/country you don’t live in

  • Don’t forget username and swap name on the card

  • On the back, write how you got the card. Was it bought on a vacation? Did you get it in a blank card swap?

I will hopefully do this swap multiple times! Let me know if there are any questions or if I missed anything! I will also angel if necessary but only after you’ve attempted contact with your partner answer rated a 1 if there is no reply.

What a wonderful idea for a PC swap! Now I finally won't have to shuffle past that same poor card again when I am checking my stash for something good to send out. :)

I dig this idea also. A suggestion is to up the number of swap partners from 1 to at least two or three. Guess i have a lot of travel ones to part with!

@RoBeastRo - I have a handful to part with as well! I want to do the swap 1-2 more times to get the hang of it and then I may increase the number of participants!
