    Inchies, Twinchies & Mooooos! (Open Theme) - Due June 29

    Swap Due Date – June 29, 2018
    Swap Sign up Date - June 22, 2018
    Number of Players - unlimited
    Number to send in - please see each group for the # to send in
    Medium - Open Media (HD/HP, Collage, MM, Digital, etc)


    What size are they?

    Inchie - 1 inch by 1 inch square (metric: 2 1/2 cm x 2 1/2 cm)
    Twinchie - 2 inches by 2 inches square (metric: 5 cm x 5 cm)
    Moo - 1 inch x 2 3/4 inch rectangle (metric: 2 1/2 cm x 7 cm)


    You can choose to either sign up for Inchies, Twinchies or Moos (or two groups or all three groups).

    The theme is open as well as the medium. All I ask is that you keep them flat. No chunky bits or loose glitter please!


    *Please measure and cut carefully. We don't want trapezoids... or inch-ish inchies. I will not accept anything that's more than and eighth of an inch off the correct size.
    *Your AFA username (at least) should be on the back of each one. It would be nice to add your location (country or state) and date as well, but it's up to you.
    *Pack them how you like. Do not be offended if I repack my way to send out. any "mailers" will be returned if requested
    *Original artwork only please (don't photocopy or scan/print your work and send in the printed out artwork. "printing" is ok with digital because it's the only way to send in digital art)
    *late cards and/or a lack of withdraw will result in a neutral. Please ensure you mail on time.

    Need some tips on mailing? Here's a thread that may help:
    Inchies: 5 easy ways to pack and mail them

    Postage Requirements:

    US - clearly write or type your address in black or blue (not a pastel blue...lol) on a mailing label or piece of paper, your address should be at least 1" x 2" - please do not send envelopes! I prefer using my own envelopes.
    (no return address labels, they're too small)
    postage - .50 (forever) or .71 (recommended for collage)
    *I return unneeded postage unless told otherwise.
    I can also accept Paypal if you prefer that route. PM for Paypal details.

    International - clearly write or type your address on a mailing label or piece of paper - I will provide envelopes
    postage - $1 USD or US Stamp, Paypal or your own country's postage equivalent for that weight
    (I love international postage and can sometimes use them for international swaps )

    Please PM me for my address when you are ready to mail. If you post your request for my addy in the thread, I will not see it right away.
    I'm still in Dix, IL if you have my addy from a previous swap, but please let me know that you've mailed!

    When you receive your returns for the swap, please remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) so I know you're returns have arrived and you rock (rep points) for each inchie/twinchie/moo you receive.

    welcome Greenpengirl!


    I was so worried there'd be a lack of interest which is why I grouped all three in one swap, but it looks like we're doing good!

    Am I correct that you're taking an unlimited # of players in each group? So I can come back later and sign up for more if I have time?

    Hi BHP!
    I hope Kynara doesn't mind me jumping in here.
    *Inchies are 1"x1" cards (You send in 4 and get 4 in return.)
    *Twinchies are 2"x2" cards (You send in 2 and get 2 in return.)
    *Moos are 1"x2-3/4" cards (You send in 2 and get 2 in return.)

    This is covered in the first two posts above. It can be confusing, but it's always good to read that first post thoroughly since it gives you all the info you need. Swaps can vary in their rules. This one's a little different than a regular ATC swap. You'll get the hang of it!

    Here's a sample of each of them. You can click on the image to make it larger.

    Will people get a random return or will their returns be from the same person? (Example: Will we get four inchies from 4 different people, or four inchies from one person?)

    returns will be from 4 different people just as any ATC swap. They won't be completely random, I do try to swap effort for effort when possible.

    Thank you - in the past, all but one inchies swap I was in had the returns all come from the same person, which is why I asked.
