Default Card Swap Template ~ For Card Swap Hosts

If you are hosting a swap then we have this ready made template that you can use or customise for your swap

Hello and Welcome to The___________Swap 20__!

Before you may participate in this swap, or any for that matter, you must first read and acknowledge the updated policies thread which can be found here. You will not be able to participate if this is not done! I would also 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!

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 by ______________. You lists will be distributed no later than _______________. That gives you approximately 2 weeks to get your cards to our family and friends. Please remember, it is required that you send a minimum of 3 cards for every 1 name you submit. If you can send more than the required amount, let me know in your pm.

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 Your relationship to inmate
Inmate’s name and number
Prison/Jail address
Message to your loved one
If you need an address to use as your return address please ask the host. Some members do allow us to use their PO Box although this is not available in every swap.

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

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 sitting around waiting for your reply.
~If you are able to write that person back, again, let the OP know and make sure if it is okay for you to respond.


For Florida, Missouri, Oklahoma Inmates.

Inmates in these states are no longer allowed to advertise on a pen-pal website:

If you have a loved one in any of these states please contact me ( Lisainengland ) via private message.
Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate.
