...
Important Information:

1. Delivery Confirmation Numbers will be required for swap packages that are being sent within the United States. If youre sending a package to another country, or if you dont reside in the United States, please save your receipts!  Remember to send the DCN info to your swap partner and the organizer,Balkandina

Shipping Tip For US Residents: The USPS requires that the package measures at least thick for a DCN if you don't use priority mail.  If your package is too flat, it might be necessary to bulk up the package with a couple of plastic grocery bags to get the DCN!

Shipping Tip for Sending TO Canada: Canadian Customs really, really likes getting their cut ($5 handling fee plus taxes on the declared value). Please remember to mark your customs form with gift and NCV (No Commercial Value) or NA (Not Applicable) when sending to Canada.

For US swappers sending to Canada: The name of the form is Custom Declaration CN-22 (PS Form 2976) and is green and white. But you have to fill it out at the post office, you can't get it off the USPS website.

2. It is important to communicate with your partners and the organizer.  You must let the organizer and your partner know when you have shipped, received or may be late! You are  responsible for sending out the swap package in a timely manner!

3. I will be leaving feedback based on communication and shipping. Theres no way to over-communicate with me.
Please remember to check in on this thread at least once a week-I need to know what's going on!
4. Please, send what youd like to receive  Smiley

Details of swap:
Here is a great swap for paper/ephemera hoarders artists!
We will swap a 9x12 (A4/C4) manila envelope stuffed with papers and ephemera. This can include papers:scrapbook,wrapping,tissue,handmade, magazine and book pages/cutouts,tickets,brochures,booklets,stickers, postage stamps or anything similar. If you want to receive/send small items such as lace,ribbon, fabric bits, buttons please note that on the questionnaire.
If you want to send/receive 12x12 paper (30x30 cm) paper - please note that, too. I'll try to match you up with a partner who also wants to do so, but I can't promise.

I went to the Denver Art museum today and I was so greedy-taking all sorts of brochures,etc...knowing I'll be swapping soon. And I'm finally moving my stuff from the dining room into a pseudo craft room in the basement, so I need to go through all my stuff! Woo hoo!!

Omygosh Balk. I've been doing that too! I walked through my colleges student center friday and scooped up all sorts of goodies. Band posters, pamplets, football team schedules, "welcome to a new school year" sheets.
