What’s a pen pal club without a steady flow of geeky and adorable stationery!?
Let’s get back to the basics of snail mail creation. Getting ready to send a letter off to a pen pal? How about starting with some awesome stationery to knock their socks off?! This swap is a chance to freshen up your stash by trading supplies with fellow iggles. All varieties of materials are welcome, whether you want to share items with unique designs or featuring your favorite fandoms. Goodies may be premade or stuff you’ve created yourself!
- Sign up: July 1 – 10
- Matching email goes out: July 11
- Mail your package by: July 31
HOW IT WORKS
Participants will be paired with one other person. You and your partner will receive a swap info email containing information you provide on the form below. You and your partner are then expected to contact each other to trade addresses and to work out other details regarding your swap. You’ll have until July 31 to mail out your package.
We ask that you provide a tracking number to your swap partner.
You will have the option to indicate that prefer to ship domestically only. We’ll do our best to honor your preference, but the ability to do so of course depends on whether another person from your country signs up for the swap.
WHAT SHOULD YOU INCLUDE IN YOUR SWAP?
You’ll send sheets of paper, greeting cards, and/or postcards decorated with geeky/cute/fun designs.
Store-bought and homemade designs are welcome!
It’s okay to send extra (ex: envelopes, stickers, erasers, rubber stamps, or non-stationery items like candy) but it’s NOT REQUIRED. We suggest hammering out details directly with your swap partner.
SUGGESTED $10 spending limit. You may spend more than that, but there’s NO PRESSURE to spend tons of money. It’s the thought that counts!
Please try to be mindful of each other’s budgets!
CAN’T FINISH YOUR SWAP?
Sometimes life happens and it turns out you can’t complete your swap as promised. That’s okay! Please be considerate and notify both Kara and your swap partner as soon as possible.
Participants who fail to complete a swap without giving notice may be banned from participating in future swaps at IGGPPC Staff discretion.
