    March 5x7 Canvas Trade

    Deadline to sign up: CLOSED. PLEASE JOIN US IN APRIL.
    Mail-by date (try to mail by this date): 25 March.
    Deadline to get to your partner: 31 March. (Please note that COVID has caused a lot of delays. Please have patience with the postal system.)
    Open Theme, HD/HP or Mixed Media (You do not need to make something based on your partner’s profile, so you are allowed to work on it before partners are assigned.)
    Substrate: 5x7 canvas board.


    HOW TO JOIN and RULES:
    ~Players have until evening (U.S. Central time) on 8 March to sign up. I will then assign partners the following day. (U.S. Central time.)
    ~Players MUST be able to commit; you cannot withdraw after partners are assigned. No negative iTraders in last 6 months, no Neutrals in last 3 months.
    ~International players welcomed! Please PM me if you cannot afford international postage. I was able to mail a canvas in a bubble mailer to the UK for less than $7.
    ~Players must PM their partners and trade addresses once they have been assigned.
    ~Communicate delays/known absences to your partner.
    ~Keep your partner and the thread posted on when the canvas was mailed and when you received your canvas.
    ~Anticipate at least a 3-week ship time from places outside the US or Canada, so it your partner and the forum know when you've mailed the canvas. Please do not give a Neutral or Negative iTrader for a long ship time.


    CREATING THE CANVAS
    ~Open medium on 5x7 canvas board. (Can be HD/HP, mixed media)
    ~You can start canvases early or wait to be assigned a partner – you do not have to make something based on your partner’s profiles, but you certainly are welcome to do that if you want to make it a little more special.
    ~We would love it if you can post a picture of the canvas you made! (After your partner receives it!)
    ~Consider coating your canvas with a clear protective coating designed for artwork to help protect it on its journey. Definitely do this if you use mediums like pencils, charcoal or chalk pastels.


    MAILING THE CANVAS
    ~Canvases should be mailed early enough to make it into your partner’s hands before the last day of the month.
    ~Canvases may be mailed in an envelope or 'naked' (ie, mailed as-is and not in an envelope). Understand that a naked canvas may end up with postal marks, scratches or other blemishes (this just adds to the character of the canvas!) The canvas' creator is not responsible for any damage to a canvas that has been mailed naked. If you absolutely do not want to receive a naked canvas, please post that when you sign up, and I will do my best to partner you with someone who will mail the canvas in an envelope. Please understand that this may not always be possible.
    ~I strongly encourage senders to get a tracking number when you mail the canvas. (We have had canvases take the scenic route before, so tracking really helps to make sure they don't get too lost.) The canvas' creator is responsible for mailing a new canvas if the original does not arrive after 3 weeks.

    ETTIQUITE RULES
    ~Do not join if you aren’t sure that you can commit to making a canvas. We understand that life doesn’t always follow the rules, so if something unexpected happens, PM your partner and work it out with them.
    ~Communicate, communicate, communicate! You MUST PM your partner if you aren’t able to meet your deadline. No communication WILL RESULT IN NEGATIVE iTRADERS! No one likes giving those out, if you are delayed for whatever reason, please let your partner know ahead of time.

    iTRADER
    ~Positive iTrader = given to your partner when you receive your canvas. I, as the host, do not get an iTrader.
    ~Negative iTrader = no canvas by the deadline and no communication.


    Who would like to play? (And please help spread the word - the more players we have, the better!)
