CARD SWAP: Annual and Occasions Catalog Card Swap – DUE March 2

It’s half way through the new catalogs and many of us could use some new ideas to share with our customers to keep the excitement going!

This swap will emphasize the Annual Catalog and Occasions Catalogs

This swap is modeled after Tami White’s Swaps, so you’ll see me reference her videos and instructions here!

PLEASE – read through ALL the rules and guidelines carefully and follow them. We will be receiving and sorting hundreds of cards and need YOUR help to make sure everything runs smoothly.


HOW TO SWAP

This swap is for FULL CARDS

    FAQ

    • Can I make more then 1 set of 11 cards?
      • You may sign up for up to 3 groups BUT you MUST make a different design for EACH group.
    • What is the standard card size?
      • A standard card size is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ (folded in half) OR 11″ x 4-1/4″ (folded). You card may vary in size (for example 6×6). However, an ATC size and tags are not acceptable substitutes.
    • Where do you get the clear envelopes?
      • We sell them in the catalog #102619. All swaps MUST be in a Stampin’ Up! clear envelope, ready to display upon receipt. If SU! doesn’t sell the envelope, you may not use it.
    • I’m participating in another swap, can I use the same design?
      • No. Swap card designs MUST be exclusive to this swap
    • I’ve never done a card swap before and I’m nervous I’ll make a mistake
      • See the video of a past swap below to help illustrate how it is done.

SWAPS ARE DUE to me NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, MARCH 2ND NO EXCEPTIONS.
Any swaps received after that date will be returned unopened.
Mail them early to avoid last minute stress.


HOW TO MAIL SWAPS

1) Place each individual swap card in a Stampin Up Clear Envelope:
http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=102619
2) Place each group of swap card in a gallon sized zip lock bag.
IMPORTANT: Mark your NAME on each bag.
**Only include ONE Group of Swaps in each gallon ziplock bag.

3) You MUST include a SELF-ADDRESSED, POSTAGE PAID Return Envelope. I highly recommend using the USPS Flat Rate Priority envelopes. Please do not use the small priority boxes, your return swaps may not fit.

  • You can use click and ship labels on USPS.com. OR go to the Post Office.
    • USPS.com asks what date you are mailing and only gives 4 days out. This date isn’t important, you can still use it on your return envelope even if it’s weeks later.
    • Please make sure return postage is attached to envelope.
    • DO NOT send money
    • DO NOT send loose postage in the envelope
    • The only thing in the envelope upon arrival should be zip locked bags with your name on them and filled with swaps. They are all opened at once and grouped anything additional in the envelope original will be thrown away.
  • If you are participating in multiple swaps, you may mail them all in the same package.
