While we were planning out some of our Valentine's posts last week, we had an epiphany. We need to host a Valentine's card swap! If you haven't participated in a card swap before, it is so fun. Here's the lowdown:
Everyone who's interested signs up by e-mailing us. We make a list and tell everyone how many cards to make (design one card and make multiples of it). Everyone sends us their cards with a pre-paid return envelope. We "swap" them so everyone gets one of everyone else's cards, then send them back out. You get an envelope in the mail with a bunch of Valentine's cards and tons of new ideas!
Sound fun? Okay, then here are the rules:
1. Sign up by e-mailing email@example.com with your name and address by Saturday, January 17, 2009.
2. Make your cards (we'll e-mail you and tell you how many) and mail them to us by Saturday, January 31, 2009. Include a pre-paid envelope so we can mail them back (we'll give you an amount once we know how many cards will be in the envelope).
3. We'll swap and return your cards by Saturday, February 7, 2009.
We know, it's a pretty quick turn around from sign-up to mailing your cards, but you can always start designing your card now, and then sit down and mass-produce them in an evening once we give you the final number of cards you'll need to make. You can do it!
Jessica and I were so excited about this that we got together and made a few Valentine's cards, just for fun. It's interesting to see how two people with the same design change things up. Maybe these will get your creative juices flowing. Enjoy!
Don't forget to sign up for our Valentine's card swap by e-mailing your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 17th!
