Welcome to the Dorkrooms first (maybe) postcard print swap! It's a simple idea, send a small print to a random goon somewhere in the world. Postcards according to USPS measure up to 4-1/4 x 6" and are incredibly cheap to post. But we'll do prints up to 5x7 as that's a commonly available paper.

Feel free to ship your print as a postcard with no protection, or, in a letter. It cost me something like $3 to send a 5x7 print to the US from Australia.

If you wish to sign up please fill out this google form once: https://forms.gle/yGs294MpFzZLfeZy8

Sign up will be open for a fortnight or so, then we'll give everyone a fortnight to print and post. If you don't have PMs be sure to add your e-mail to the sign up so I can inform you of who you're sending too.

Please post below if you're keen or have any questions and sign up!

Requirements
Minimum Print Size: 4 1/4" x 6"
Maximum Print Size : 5" x 7"
Paper: For inkjet please use a quality paper, 180gsm and up.

Pairs will be picked randomly and you'll receive a PM or e-mail from myself with your pairing. I am the only one (other than your pair) who will see your address. Your address will be purged after completion of the swap.

It's closed! Everyone should have received their drawing. You now have 2 weeks to print and mail something to your pairing. Please let me know if you didn't receive an e-mail or PM.

I think 2 weeks from the match date to print and ship. Obviously some will take longer to travel

Whoops, I didn't sign up on Forms either If there was anyone who didn't have a match I'd be happy to do so, otherwise I'll wait it out until next time.

Everyone's got a match, but we'll probably do another one around Christmas time so keep an eye out.
