Share your creativity through the mail – postcard swap!
See what other crafters and artists from around the world create while brightening your day with a bit of artsy mail at the end of the year – a postcard swap!
Use our handmade postcards from Thailand as the canvas for your work. These 6″x4″ stiff paper pieces take acrylic paint and watercolor beautifully! You can also collage on them, sew through them, transfer images on to them – you name it!
Each pack comes with 10 postcards. You can start creating your masterpieces as soon as you get your cards.
Save on shipping!
If the shipping address is in the US, use the coupon code SWAPUS and save $3 on shipping! If the shipping address is outside the US, use the coupon code SWAPWORLD and save $6 on shipping! Coupons expire on December 13, 2013.
On December 16th, you’ll be emailed 9 names and addresses. You address 9 of your postcards using these addresses and drop them in the mail by December 23rd.
While we expect most participants will be in the United States, international artists are welcome to play as well.
US Post Office regulations say to qualify as a postcard, the finished piece must be less than 0.016″ thick (about 1/64″). Over that (but less than 1/4″) means first class postage rates will apply. You can check US postcard rates on the USPS website. If you’re based outside the US, please check postage rates with your post office.
Based on where your post cards are coming from, you can expect 9 post cards from other artists to arrive in your mailbox around the end of the year.
Get started on your art now, so you’ll be ready to mail your work after December 16th!
Once you purchase your postcards here, check out www.AlteredPages.com. They have a great selection of collage imagery and are offering 20% off if you use the coupon code ARTPOSTCARDSWAP when you check out on their site! These images would be fantastic on postcards!
Everyone is using the same handmade postcard as a base. In January we’ll show you a creative way to store the postcards you receive (plus the one you kept for yourself).
Act quickly so you can start creating now and be a part of this exciting postcard swap!
I’ve got one done… an ocean reef I made by collaging with bits of art paper and Perfect Paper Adhesive.
