Welcome to the 2019 Christmas Card Trade!
Come join us in celebrating the holidays by trading hand made cards with other members around the world.
This project is a multiple mailing trade; please only sign up if you are able to complete the trade.
How does it work?
This project will be limited to 13 participants, which means you will need to make and mail 12 cards.
Each participant is to paint/draw/collage/etc. original card(s) in a letter mail size of your choice (about 5x7 inches or smaller) from your own references, imagination, or the RIL.
You can send originals or copies. If you are making copies of one or two designs, the copies must be of good quality (no regular paper photocopies).
How to sign up?
This project is full.
For technical reasons, we are not using the project system this year.
To sign up this year, simply post below that you are signing up. Then please immediately send me your address via pm. The first twelve addresses that I receive will be in the trade. I must have all addresses before November 1st.
Once I have all the addresses, I will send a pm out with the address list. Please remember to keep the list private, we once had someone accidentally take a photo showing addresses on cards so just something to be aware of.
Who can sign up?
Any member of WetCanvas can sign up excepting members who have signed up for and not completed previous trades.
When to mail?
For posting cards to international locations please send out by December 1st. For posting cards within your own country please use your judgment on how fast they will arrive and post accordingly. Be sure to post them early enough to arrive before Christmas but not too early please!
Be sure to put the right amount of postage on, international destinations will need different amounts of postage. Check with your countryís post office if youíre not sure what is needed.
What to do when you receive a card?
As soon as you receive a card, be sure to pm the person who sent it as soon as possible. If you only write that you received it in this thread, they may not see it. Itís always a bit of a worry when people donít let the sender know so please be considerate.
What to do when someone tells you they have received your card?
When someone has received your card, post the image in this thread so we can all see.
What if someone doesnít let you know they received your card?
If youíve sent cards out and the person doesnít let you know theyíve arrived and time is passing, pm them and ask. If they donít respond to the pm, go ahead and post your image.
If you have any concerns at all about another member please pm me privately. Thank you.
What to do if you've signed up but can't complete the trade?
If Life decides to intervene and you can't complete the trade, please simply let me know as soon as possible, via pm.
Please use this thread to talk about the trade and or any general chatter about holidays or catching up or whatever youíd like.
Please also take the time to show support and comment on otherís cards when they post their images.
Since this is the first time we've done the trade without the project system, let me know if I've forgotten anything or ask away if you have any questions.
Thank you all!
