2019 HOLIDAY SNAIL MAIL CARD SWAP!!
I am so excited to be co-hosting a Holiday Snail Mail Card Swap with my good friend and fellow animal lover Olivia of Atiliay! We created this swap as a way for us to get into the holiday spirit, encourage snail mail, support local artists and businesses, and to connect and have fun! :) Join us and receive a fun mix of holiday cards that you’ll be able to use this season! Below are all the details or you can find them on directly on the sign up page as well.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THIS SWAP?
We welcome card designers, snail mail enthusiasts, makers and shop owners, card and stationery lovers, and everyone in between–if you would enjoy getting mail and some holiday cards to use this season, we would love to have you join us! It’s also a fun way to show your work and support the artists and designers you love!
International participants are welcome!
WHAT WILL I RECEIVE/WHAT DO I NEED TO SEND?
The idea is for you to receive a variety of holiday cards that you’ll be able to use this holiday season.
By joining the swap, you are agreeing to send 1 unused A2 (4.25″x5.5″) holiday card to EACH of your swap matches. (Do NOT write inside the card–the idea is for each person to get a brand new card that they will be able to use.)
You will be put into groups of 3-5 matches. You will be sending each of your matches 1 card and you will also receive a card from each of your matches as well.
We ask that the value of your card be $5 minimum. We encourage you to support small businesses and purchase from local artists or shops.
We also think it’d be nice (but not required) if you add a separate note to say hi to your swap match :)
Optional: If you’d like to send a bigger card or one of more value, feel free! You can also add a short note or extra goodies (stickers, gift tags, etc.) if you’d like.
IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER
Swap sign up ends on October 23rd.
You will receive an email with your swap matches on October 27th.
The deadline to send your cards out by is November 11th.
