I love the Four Seasons of my home state. Since it is summer here.I wanted to start a new series of swaps. Summer First.This being the first swap of the series. You can start on this swap as soon as you sign on.That is what's so great about sender choice swaps. No profiles to wait on, to get started.Although it is always great to read your partners profile. It helps me to know a bit about a person. So I can relate to them when I write my message on the postcard.
Let's see how many of us can make our very own Postcard's. From our very own Photos. Sender choice, check out you photo collection.Or start clicking away to create a New Photo.It's up to the sender.
Take YOUR Photo & than Attach the card stock paper to the back of the Photo. This way it will be able to travel through the Postal System with ease. Please be sure your card is at least 4x6. Better yet, how about a 5x7. Although this swap only calls for a 4x6.
...About the Photo's you Swap Here.I wrote your photo on here for a reason.Please Do Not use a Photo in this Swap UNLESS it's yours. You must have shot the photo yourself.PERIOD.
...Laminating...You could laminate your postcard for this swap if you like. If you do, please make sure you attach a large enough sticker on the back with your writing. And use a laminating machine that will produce a fine cover postcard. No Tape!
. . . Photo's should be printed on photo paper. Also be sure to include the Swap Name & Your Swap Bot ID.
PLEASE NOTE: NO Crude, Rude or Offensive Photo's Allowed in this Swap... No Photo's of Children Allowed in this Swap.. JUST A REMINDER....Photo's used for the Swaps I Coordinate must be shot by you the Swapper.
Mail Your Postcard Naked.(stamped & written on,no envelopes please) Just make sure you have enough Postage on the larger card. Mailing within the U.S.A., cost of a 4x6, is 29 cents.The cost of a 5x7, is 44 cents, same as a First Class Letter. Please watch the thickness on the card itself. Card Stock is available in different mills. The thickness best to use on this mailable postcard,is the same as an index card. Why not just use an index card for your backing.Be sure the card stock or index card is attached neatly to the photo.
As long as you receive at least 1 Naked (stamped,written on & no envelopes please) 4x6 Photo Postcard with swap specifications met . You should Rate your Partner a 5. Photo's need be printed on photo paper, also neatly secured to card stock or a index card.
