    Printmaking ATCs Swap - Due August 15

    Printmaking ATCs – Due 15 August


    Swap Due Date: 15 August
    Sign Up/Withdraw by: 30 July
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3
    Number of Participants: 30

    This swap is for 30 artists to celebrate traditional/hand-pulled printmaking methods, which include but are not limited to linocuts, hand-carved stamps, letterpress, collography, and serigraphy. You could also use some more basic techniques like potato prints and string prints too, if you'd like.

    Any and all themes are welcome in this swap.

    Please feel free to embellish your cards: use collaged backgrounds, embroider your prints, colour them in, collage over them, etc. I've attached two of my own ATCs that use printmaking methods: the first one is a monotype that I coloured in with ink and the second one is a hand-carved stamp that I embroidered.

    The guidelines:
    1. Send me 3 ATCs that prominently feature a printmaking method.
    2. All hand-pulled printing methods are welcome.
    3. Feel free to embellish your prints but please also ensure that the printmaking technique is the key component of your work.
    4. Please write your user name on the back of your cards.
    5. Please include an address label or a SAE.
    6. Please include the following postage:

    * Canadian participants, please include as many stamps as it took you to send your cards to me.
    * American participants, please include one well-concealed dollar (no coins please).
    * Overseas participants, the postage is on me.

    7. Cards are due in my hands by 15 August. I live in the middle of Canada and mail from anywhere (domestic and international) can take up to two weeks to arrive on my doorstep. I will mail returns within two weeks of the swap deadline. I will take advantage of the two-week grace period to wait for cards that are taking the long way to Winnipeg.
    8. Please PM me for my mailing address when you're ready to send.
    9.If you have any questions, please ask them by posting to this thread.
    10. As a host, I expect effort, not expertise from players. Newbies and experimenters welcome! Please keep in mind, though, that if you feel like apologising for your ATCs, you should keep working on them until that temptation goes away.

    *Any cards that do not meet the requirements will be returned to the artist provided that the appropriate amount of postage to cover returning them is sent.*

    Interested? Please sign up by posting to this thread.

    Questions? Please PM me or ask them in this thread.

    Of course! I hope that you host that hand-carved stamp swap in the future too. I'm always down for some hand-carved love.
