It's that time of year again! The nationally recognized week that every postcard collector and enthusiast anxiously waits for; National Postcard Week aka NCPW. May 5th - 11th is a nationally (and some internationally) celebrated week filled with blog posts, team activities, clubs and best of all many great postcard swaps (exchanges!)
Instructions/Guidelines1) Very important! Email me at ButterflyInTheAttic at yahoo dot com. In the subject put either Postcard Swap or Postcard Exchange. Include your name, Mailing address and let me know if you would like to be added to my email list to receive any future emails about the PPT team, promotions, and the Monthly News Letter that I am developing.
2) Design or purchase already made cards, you can even use vintage cards that you would like to exchange if you want. Personally I like the handmade cards but any will be great. I also suggest that if you are purchasing already made cards get some that show something about where you live or have meaning to you
3) Write on the back or have printed on the cards NPCW 2013 (you can see how others have done it in the past if you check out the ones I received last year) Write on it your name and if you designed it give a little description so we know what it is about. Sign and numbering them is always nice. Who knows maybe yours will end up in some collector magazine 50 years from now:)
5) Now it is up to everyone that signed up: within 1 week send a postcard (or cards if you desire) to each participant on the list using their posted mailing address.
That's it! Now just have fun!If you would like to take photographs of all the cards you receive and send them to me via email, I would love to post them on this blog. Write a little blurb about your experience (I reserve editor's rights and may do grammar, spelling checks or trim down if needed.)
Any questions please email me.
The more people participating the more fun it is so spread the word.
