Host cards are not required but will be cherrished forever.

Package your cards securely, don't put them loose in an envelop but tape them with washi tape to a sturdy piece of paper so they won't bend

Hahaha, Emmadreamstar, I just wrote in your gallery that you should join this swap (after seeing your Beetlejuice cards) but then realized that you were first in here! And that you already said that you'd seen the musical twice.... I can't keep people straight on this site! Anyways, glad you're here!

Yup, I'm all about Beetlejuice! I was a very strange and unusual 5 year old who was totally in love with him (no seriously, I would say he was my "husband" haha) And that love definitely carried over into adulthood. I have seen the movie probably 100 times easy, never fails to bring a smile to my face!
Thanks for looking out and letting me know about the swap though! So excited to make some fun BJ art! Hope I get another one of your beautiful cards to add to my collection!!!!!
And yup saw the musical twice and it was so damn fun both times, I wish I could go a third time honestly! Worth every penny... it was my favorite musical to date and I highly recommend it to just about everyone I know haah! :'D

As much as I hate to say this, I have to withdraw from this one. My workload with moving in to an new art building has taken over my waking life. I'm so sorry to miss out on this!

Still waiting on the cards from Barox818, I'll keep waiting until after the holidays due to the slow mail and I really don't want the cards to get lost in the mail, that would be a shame since everyone made such great sets.

Ugh! Thanks for letting me know and for being understanding Itrader-wise. Especially since I noticed this is the 2nd swap of yours in which my cards failed to reach you. (Aliens in Action was the other) Have you had any other issues dealing with USA senders? I’m curious if there’s a difference in mailing customs that is preventing my cards from reaching you...

BArox818

I typically send in a business size envelope. When sending to other countries I use two “forever” stamps. Amanda and Emma, since you are both also from US and had no issues can you tell me what you did differently? Perhaps more stamps or a different envelope size? Hopefully we can solve the above mystery.

I usualy don't have any issues with cards from the USA, most people use 1 or 2 forever stamps (most of the time the flower ones).

Did you added my country to my mailing address, sometimes people forget to add it or it could just be because of the slow holiday mail last year a had an evelop reach me after 3 months but that is an exeption, normaly it takes about 5 to 10 business days.

BArox818

lol.. well, for the previous swap, I suppose that could be the issue. (I don’t believe so, but it being a year-ish ago, no way to know for sure) This swap though I actually remember my husband commenting “Wow all the way to Belgium!” when I asked him to drop it in the mailbox, so I know the country was on there this time lol. I think next time, instead of putting it in the mailbox, I’ll take it directly to the post office and see what they recommend. We shall see lol
Again, thanks for understanding.

I usually use a sturdy/thick greeting card, so the envelope size is different than a business sized one. I usually go to the post office for cards going international- I ask them specifically to put a global stamp on and have them weigh it to make sure it's the correct amount of postage... I havent had a problem with international so far, thankfully, but sometimes it just takes a very long time... i think i sent a set to south Africa once and it took upwards of a month. I'm so sorry your set didnt arrive and that this is the second time its happened... so sad :'(

Just an FYI: I went to the post office and inquired. Emma is definitely correct on having to use the GLOBAL stamp. Those others that have been just using forever stamps have apparently only been getting lucky that their envelopes were machine-sorted as opposed to checked by an actual person. The machines don’t know the difference but a person stops the transition because that is NOT the valid way to send internationally. Global stamps are the way to go and I have invested in a pack for next time!
Also a great tidbit for the other forever-stampers for future reference if they’re not interested in “gambling” on whether or not it’ll reach its destination.
