Beverley
03-16-2023, 11:52 AM
Due Date: May 12, 2023
Withdraw by Date: Anytime - just please communicate
Number of Cards: 3/3 or 6/6
Number of Participants: Unlimited
Media: Open (no prints, digital, white backgrounds or photography)

Theme: Coins - Any theme you like!!

We seem to have very few coin swaps at the moment, so how about a nice simple coin swap?
Easy-Peasy Lemon-squeezy!
Create 3 or 6 coins, all different, with any theme you want; anything goes, so get creative!!


Swap Requirements:

Coins need to have a diameter of 2.5 inches. If you do not have a 2.5 circle die or punch, please
make sure you cut your circles neatly. They do not have to be perfect, but they shouldn't look
sloppy. (if you need any I can mail you some; just ask me!)

Original artwork only
3:3 or 6:6 (hostess cards are never a requirement, but would be treasured)
Good craftsmanship: send in something that you would be excited to see in your return envelope.
Please make sure your coins are sturdy. They need to be thicker than just one sheet of card stock.
Each coin needs to be in its own protective sleeve.
I will do my very best to swap effort for effort and like for like.
Please include swap name, your username, real name, and location on the back of each coin.


Mailing:
Canadian Participants - Please include a Canadian stamp.
US Participants – Please include a forever stamp or well concealed $1.
International Participants - I will cover your mailing cost this time.
PLEASE INCLUDE A RETURN MAILING LABEL WITH YOUR ADDRESS WRITTEN CLEARLY ON IT;
I WILL PROVIDE THE ENVELOPES.

I am in CANADA, so please give yourself lots of mailing time.

When you are ready to send in your coins, please private message me for my mailing address.

When you receive your coins, please leave itrader for your hostess (that would be me) and "you rock" points to the players you received artwork from.

So... who would like to play?

I feel like I don't understand, am I taping these to a 2.5 x 3.5 card? Or am I just sending an envelope with some coin shaped and colored circles inside?

AlanaCat - Coins are 2.5 inch round - but otherwise are the same as an ATC. You can draw or paint, collage or do other mixed media design or image on the coin.

I just put the finishing touches on my Springtime-inspired art coins. Funny aside: I had a 2-1/2 inch cutting system that, when I measured it, trimmed smaller than 2.5 inches (imposter!) So, I bought a new punch that was the correct size and then improvised with a nice black border to make up the difference. Art supply fail turned into a win, ha!

I went to the post office yesterday to mail my coins. I had an international stamp and an extra ounce stamp because the way I packed the coins made the envelope a little lumpy. So I asked the post office lady if I had enough postage for Canada. She wanted to know what I was mailing and I said it’s 7 paper coins. She said I had to fill out a customs form because it was a package, not a letter. I said it’s paper like a letter. She said but it’s not a letter, it’s an item so it requires a customs form. (I started thinking ugly things about the post office) Well I told her I didn't have my glasses so couldn’t fill it out. She told me to take the form with me and fill it out at home. So I did. I went back to have the same lady tell me that not only was it going to cost $14.75 to mail my envelope, they weren’t able to connect with the server to log my customs form in but I could go to the downtown office and mail it there. Well, I was so mad after that, I had to go to PetCo and pet a few animals. That calmed me down so I could think and I went back home with a plan to actually mail my coins today. I took them all out of the original envelope, took the WASHI tape off that I had wrapped around them and put them in a round robin holder. Now the envelope is stiff but flat and not over-heavy. I put an international stamp on and nothing extra. I guess we will see who gets them, me or Beverley. If they come back, I will let you know. I didn’t take them back to the post office. I mailed them in the outgoing mailbox right outside my apartment. Probably what I should have done to begin with. Did OrigamiGrace have to have a customs document? I’ve never encountered that before with an envelope.

nanner
03-28-2023, 10:38 PM
I feel your pain, Maggie. Sadly, regardless of postal rules, things get interpreted by people, and then different postal employees will tell you different things. I ran into a similar problem while sending odd-sized postcards. Some got delivered just fine, some were returned, and some had to be re-sent with more postage. For this swap, I sent 4 thick coins with an international stamp and an extra regular stamp. The envelope weighed just over an ounce if memory serves. If yours get returned, you probably just need to account for extra weight...not package rate. Here's hoping the Universe gives them safe passage to Beverly.

P.S. for Bev...My coins headed your way yesterday. :D

Well that's just crazy!
I have NEVER needed a customs slip for an envelope sent to the US. The Post Office here does have its issues too, but it is mostly how the employees interpret things.
I'm so sorry that you had to jump through hoops to get your coins to me; I have faith that they will arrive here with little trouble. *fingers crossed*

Well, that's a bummer! Mine went in the mail on the 28th with 1 International stamp & I wrote "papercraft no value" on the envelope edge. I hope it gets to Beverly without a shortage of postage.

Beverley
03-30-2023, 02:32 PM
One International stamp should do it, unless it's on the heavy/thick side, then I would use 2.
Buy the stamps, stick them on and mail them in the mailbox; and by-pass the Post Office!!
I'm sure they will all arrive without a hitch :)

I made the mistake of saying an envelope had coins in it. They couldn't wrap their brain around the fact that they were not coin currency. I finally said, they are handmade cards made of paper that are round. Now I always tell them that they are handmade paper cards. Not artwork. Not coins. Whew! Gotta learn the lingo.

My coins are on their way today. I have just received a Concord and 9th Turnabout stamp for crafty people and couldn't resist using it for most of my coins.

Wow! Donnacr, those are well done. The one with the circular frame and the blossoming limbs is my favorite!

I must say, the term "coins" has always eluded me. I think of them as rounds. Why I do that, I don't know.

I’m so happy to hear they arrived safely. I only used 1 international stamp. I hope you didn’t pay postage due. If so I will reimburse you. I’m almost giddy that the “letter” I sent you is there.

Beverley, have my coins arrived? I'm hoping my postage was enough for the journey. If they arrive with postage due I will certainly make it right with you. I sent them on March 28th so I'm thinking they should have arrived unless they have been sent back to me.:unsure:

05-17-2023, 01:54 AM
My goodness! I would have expected them to have arrived ages ago! If they still haven't arrived, count them lost and swap anyway.

Beverley

Still nothing dithespy! They have been travelling for quite a long time; let's not give up just yet!
Let's give it a bit more time; I'm sure they will arrive anytime now.

Letís wait a while longer. Diís coins are precious!

Beverley
05-23-2023, 12:02 PM
Guys; no coins from Di yet, but it has been a long weekend here and they have been travelling for a couple of weeks from FRANCE. I have never had to wait this long for Di's mail before, so it is probably just a glitch in the mail-matrix!!
So... I have decided to wait until Friday's mail has arrived (26th) before swapping out, just to give a little more time for the mail to come in. Surely to goodness they will have arrived by then *fingers crossed*.
If they don't arrive by then, I'll go ahead and swap out.
I hope this is agreeable for all?
:)

AndromedasWitchery

Perfectly fine for waiting!
Sometime postal services seem have wormholes for working.... once occurred to that a letter shipped from Italy required 4 (four, is not a joke!) months for arrive in Germany... where usually arrive in 3/4 days.
So, don't worry! Hope thet they will arrive safe to you!
