Default Post Card Swap!

Hello and Welcome to The Post Card Swap 2018!


Before you may participate in this swap, or any for that matter, you must first read and acknowledge the Card Forum Guidelines which can be found here. You will not be able to participate until this is done. I recommend, printing out the Card Swap Flyer and sending it to your loved ones, if you have not already done so.

Please read this message in its entirety, as it will thoroughly explain what you need to do and hopefully answer most, if not all, of your questions. At the end there are some helpful tips to ensure that our loved ones are getting mail!
As Summer is now here, and a lot of us are traveling, I thought it would be a fun idea to let our loved ones travel with us. So I am hosting a post card swap for them. You can send post card from somewhere you have visited over the summer or from your home area, it’s really up to you as we all have loved ones that are all over the place and I’m sure they would love to see something different than the four walls they see every day.

Please start sending me your loved ones info now! Do not post their info in the public forum! All names need to be submitted to me (via PM) by 7/14/18. Your lists will be distributed no later than 7/19/18. All post cars should be mailed no later than 2 weeks after you receive your list. Please remember, it is required that you send one card for every name you submit. Please let the host know if you are able to send more cards then the required amount.

When you send your PM, please do so in the following format:

Subject Box:
Title of swap you are participating in

Message Box:
Number of cards you are sending

Your screen-name and relationship to inmate
Inmate’s name and ID number
Prison/Jail address
Message: Personal message you would like to include for your loved one
Note - If there are special instructions for your LOs facility (ex. white envelopes only) please include this in your PM, for this swap if a return address is required at the facility that your loved one is in, you need to include this informaiton

If you need an address to use as your return address please ask. I do have a PO Box and would gladly let you use it for your return address if needed.

Yes, all of the information needs to be in your PM. It makes it a whole lot easier on the host if the format is followed. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or a forum staff member.

Thanks for Participating and HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!

Helpful Tips

*Do not send any stickers on cards or envelopes. Some prisons do allow it but most do not.

*If and when you receive a thank you letter from a person, and they wish to have further correspondence with you, one of the following two options are preferred:

~If you are unable to write that person back, let the OP (original poster) know so their loved one is not waiting for your reply.
~If you are able to write that person back, again, let the OP know and make sure it is okay for you to respond.

THIS IS NOT BECAUSE OF JEALOUSY, IT IS OUT OF RESPECT TO OUR FELLOW CVs


Attention: For Florida, Missouri, Oklahoma & Indiana:

Inmates in these states are no longer allowed to advertise on a pen-pal website. When sending to these states, please do not mention receiving their info online.

This is an opportunity to let them "vacation" with us this summer! Let's give them the opportunity to travel outside those walls if only for a brief moment!

Thanks for all the help so far!
