Each piece of art should be protected (ATCs should be sent in ATC sleeves rather than loose). All swap return postage, is a flat rate of $3 regardless if you are sending in 3/3 or 6/6, unless otherwise specified by the swap hostess. Postage must be sent as cash. work. Please be kind and make sure you are providing $3 cash for your returns.
All swaps are to be packaged to be mailed in a bubble envelope that is large enough to allow your art to fit comfortably. Please protect your art with a cardboard insert or other wrapping that will secure them during their trip thru the postal service system. ATCs may be sent in a 9 pocket vinyl page but please keep in mind that not all ATCs will fit in these pockets for the returns. The swap hostess will do her best to re-use your envelope for the returns. Tape your package securely, put a return address on the envelope and please be sure to put enough postage on your envelope so that it does not arrive 'postage due' to your hostess.
International swappers please include an extra atc or ephemera instead of postage and be sure to package your art securely so that it arrives safe and sound.
Following these guidelines will make your swap hostess's job much easier and will help to ensure that your art and the art of your fellow swappers arrives in good condition.
Thank you and if you have any questions or concerns, please ask!
