I would love to do this - have been looking for something like this
but i live in aust - and postage to me (and from me - getting use to this though!) will cost a bomb
so if no issues with that from anyone - then i'd love to do a swap like this Tongue

I don't think it should be too expensive for you, if all you're mailing is two pages of a book.  Smiley

problem is the dimension - If it doesn't fit in a standard letter box opening- then it is classified as a parcel
which cost me $8.5 each

Maybe we should take a poll of postal regulations like the size issue (I don't think the US has any like that) and then set guidelines around it. Does that seem reasonable? Its not uncommon for swaps to have rules about the size of items (like OTT swaps and 4x4 swaps I've seen).

Why don't you figure out what size does fit in a standard letter box and let us know? I'd be up for doing a smaller page. I think 5" by 5" would be fun to do.

Oh so tempting!  I like the idea of everyone having the same size.  Small is good, too.

Ohhhhh What fun - small is good too  Grin

Also if mailing from the usa to Aussie land if it fits in a lg reg sized envie (like for a greeting card) it's only only 1.69 or so (depending on weight) with no customs paperwork.   so 5x5 would work perfect for this.

any size is good for me.
