This swap is for those who love postcards from other countries, states or even cities.

The definition of a tourist postcard is pretty obvious... A tourist postcard is a postcard depicting a particular place.

Some images on a tourist postcard, for example, could be:

  • a beach
  • landscape
  • a building
  • an attraction
  • an amusement park
  • a map
  • any other images depicting a country/state/city/town

They're generally pretty easy to get your hands on, too. But please no handmade or ad cards.

In this swap, it is a requirement for your postcards to be naked (i.e. written on, stamped and sent - not in an envelope or any other kind of packaging), with a message on the back... You could tell your partner something about this place, your connection to this place or just give them a message about yourself.

Just please have them written on!

You will need a rating of 4.5 (we always have those crappy long-standing ratings that we just can't get off of our records) and no recent 1's or 3's, however newbies with a well-filled out profile will be welcome to join as well.

You will have 3 partners for this swap, and you will have 3 weeks to send this swap out as it will be just after Christmas and New Year's, and people will need some time to get back on their feet!

Happy swapping! :)

EDIT: A swapper asked if it can be a tourist PC from anywhere. The requirements are to only send a naked tourist PC to each of your 3 partners, and it doesn't matter where it's from, as long as it's tourist-y.

Can we send a tourist pc from somewhere else if we have it. Or does it have to be from the area we live at?

ATTENTION: It has been brought to my attention that the user called @Bright16 is this swap has been suspended. I tried my best to look through all of the swappers in my swap and get rid of any suspicious ones. I obviously looked past @Bright16 because she doesn't seem to have any 1 or 3 ratings, just 5's, yet has still been suspended. Hmm. But if any of you have her as a partner, make sure to send me a message with your address when the rating reminder e-mail comes through to you and I will angel the swap for you... (i.e. Send you a PC instead.)

@craftyscrapygirl has also been partially suspended. She has the same contact information as @Anutting07 another suspended user with flaked swaps.
