valentines-topWho’s ready for a mailbox full of LOVE?!

What the world needs now is love, sweet love ♪♫♪ …good thing we Geek Girl Pen Pals are located all over the globe, ready to fire off envelopes full of doodle and washi tape-slathered goodness at a moment’s notice! In this swap we celebrate the holiday of love by swapping VALENTINES! Please read through these guidelines before you sign up below.


Everyone who signs up will be added to a spreadsheet which will be emailed to all participants. You are responsible for contacting fellow iggles to request swaps. You may request as many as you wish, but please be considerate and do not accept more swaps than you can handle.


  • Sign ups are open until February 1.
  • A link to the participant spreadsheet will be emailed out shortly after.
  • Mail your cards by February 28. The sooner the better!


We’re sending each other festive valentines! Greeting cards are swell, but postcards also count! You may include optional surprises such as candy or stickers, but keep in mind – a valentine itself is the only requirement. Feel free to jot a message of encouragement, a favorite quote, a haiku, a limerick… be as creative as you want!

  • Valentines may be either hand made or store bought.
  • You may delete your contact info from the spreadsheet once you decide you have enough swaps.
  • You may decline international swaps. Please note: this may limit the amount of swap requests you get.
  • Review the safety guidelines for our community. Decline any swaps that make you feel unsafe and contact Kara immediately.
  • All swap participants must also abide by our community’s Terms & Conditions.

Show off your haul!

We LOOOOOVE to see everyone’s swap hauls! Post pictures to Twitter and Instagram and remember to tag @iggleswaps @geekgirlpenpals and hashtags #IGGPPC #iggleswaps
