    COINS With a Quote! - due March 19, 2021

    Due Date: March 19, 2021
    Withdraw by Date: Anytime - just please communicate
    Number of Cards: 3/3
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Media: Open (no prints, digital, white backgrounds or photography)

    Theme: Coins With a Quote!

    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 coins, each with a quote of your choosing!!


    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.
    Original artwork only
    3:3 (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.
    I am going to do my best to swap effort for effort and like for like.
    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.
    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.

    Who would like to play?

    Here's a few examples from my gallery, luckycat479.

    Coins were very popular for a while but seem to have been forgotten lately.

    Yes, yes!! ATCoins are indeed a 'thing'

    Thank you for sharing your examples dithespy!

    You can also take a look at this link luckykat and you can search our gallery here at A4A.

    Coins are 2.5" round; a lovely little format to work on. I have a punch, so I'd be happy to send you a few blanks if you are interested; just let me know

    I joined the rhyming swap. I do forget to look over in the place, so I am glad you posted you are doing a coin swap. The last time I checked this open mail art, not too many swaps open.


    So add me to this one too. Thanks.

    Sign me up please! I haven’t made a coin in ages. I don’t have the punch for it either, but I’ll cut by hand very carefully. As long as that’s acceptable I’m in.

    Happy to see you lurking Theresa
    I store my coins in atc sleeves, in a 9-pocket sleeve binder. Never thought of a Pringles can; that's cool!!
