Dear Mail Art Swappers,
There are sixteen people signed up to swap mail this time around. Theme is BLUE, to be an okay get-started theme.
Mailed item should be 5x7 inches [12.5 cm x 17.5 cm approx.] max, and flat [save for paint etc, one person requires flatflatlflat, I'll include that info to their buddy] as opposed to 3D. Try to make the addressing as clear as you can, otherwise it's a pretty free-form assignment.
For reference, the mail swap thread URL is http://metatalk.metafilter.com/mefi/9603
Please feel free to use it for follow-up unless you need to get ahold of me directly.
If you have access to a scanner/camera, please upload a picture of your item before you send it off to Flickr with the tag 'mefimailswap" or email it to me and I'll upload it. Please let me know what Creative Commons license you'd like on the picture, and what credit you'd like, if you do this. If you don't have access to a scanner/camera, please let your buddy know so that they can scan/photograph it.
I've got everyone's addresses in this gmail account. There is one UK, one international, the rest are US, fyi. I'll be sending everyone their buddy addresses either today or this weekend. I'll include your mailing address & your buddy's mailing address & both your emails so you can follow up with each other if you need to.
For reference, we'll be doing one-to-one swapping this time to try out the mechanism, possibly expanding if people feel that's okay next go-round.
