:world_map: CITY/REGION: Taganrog
:round_pushpin: MEETUP PLACE: Oktyabrskaya str, 9
:calendar: DATE: 19.08.2023
:alarm_clock: TIME: 12:00
:page_facing_up: MEETUP PLAN: August 19 turned out to be a very busy day on interesting topics for postcards. And we decided to make a meeting with several topics:

  • Kokoshnik Day
  • celebration of the Apple Savior.

Dear admin! We know that the meeting must be registered 14 days in advance. But because of the summer vacation, we did not have time to register on the forum in advance!
Registration for the next meeting will be on time!
Thanks for understanding!


Hi Anna,
Lovely set of cards.
Best wishes for the meetup.

Love your cards, especially the first one! Would you like to swap? I can offer meetup cards or other cards from Italy :slight_smile:

Beautiful cards

The last 3 cards are stunning!
Anyone wishing to swap?

But you had time to design and have postcards printed more than 2 days before the date?

Unfortunately this meeting postcard using the Postcrossing logo does NOT comply with the logo usage rules

One of the rules of usage says: DON’T Put the logo on a red or blue background

See the User Manual Page 2 and 3 in the Logo User Kit for examples of allowed and not allowed colours and other elements etc.

You need to change the position of the logo on this card please.

Deleting the image from the forum does not mean that the postcard is allowed to be used. We would need a reassurance that it is altered or is withdrawn from use in that case.
As a reminder please make sure that the Trademark notice is on the back of the postcards.

Please follow the logo rules.

We are disappointed to see that again you have not followed the Postcrossing Logo rules for a meeting postcard and because of the 2 days notice you gave for the meeting we are guessing that your meeting used the NOT approved postcard.

This is the second time we have seen the logo rules not being followed for your meeting postcards.

Any future meeting postcards using the Postcrossing Logo MUST be pre-approved by Postcrossing.

Please acknowledge you understand the restriction, otherwise your account will be suspended.

Hello Vicki!
Thank you very much for your great work!
I want to answer right away that we understand and accept all the rules of postcrossing and never violate them on purpose and to the detriment of the project!
We love the project with all our hearts and really value our community in our hometown!

In this situation, I want to assure that an error has occurred. On my monitor and on the monitor of the designer there is no blue color under the logo. To us, it looks like a mixed pale gray and green color.

When making a layout, designers make sure that the logo does not mix with blue, because we often have the sky or the sea depicted on postcards.

And here on the shirt, the color is so strange that we didn’t even think that there would be a violation of the rules.

For the entire existence of our community of postcrossers in Taganrog, there were only 3 comments about the use of the logo on a blue background:

  1. https://community.postcrossing.com/t/re-3-12-2021-winter-meeting-rostov-on-don/225145
    Here we have resolved the issue in private messages.

    This is where we really got into making beautiful postcards and forgot that in English β€œblue” means many colors. Whereas in our language we have β€œsiniy” (blue) and β€œgoluboy” (skyblue), and these are different colors that exist separately.
    Therefore, here we acknowledge our violation and are very sorry about it.

    And here we are again in a different perception of color shades. Of course, we would not have had time to correct the postcard. And printed it out in the original. But there was complete confidence that there were no violations of the rules, I repeat. And I am personally very sorry that in your eyes our actions have led to doubts about the observance of the rules!

We also violated the terms of registration of the meeting twice.

    In the topic of the meeting, I noted that due to the summer holidays, they simply did not calculate the time for registering on the site. Work on postcards was underway and we had many ideas and plans. This is my personal mistake, since the registration of meetings is my responsibility. Therefore, I immediately noted in the topic that I understand that registering 3 days before the meeting is a violation of the rules, but there was no other way out. And now we have made it a priority to register meetings according to the rules.

And so that you have no doubts about our compliance with the rules of postcrossing, we register all subsequent meetings as early as possible.

  1. 30 August 2023 - 80 years of the liberation of Taganrog from occupation
  2. 3 September 2023 - Meeting-acquaintance with the artist Alena Podolyanskaya at Rostov-on-Don
    Yes, not always exactly 14+ days. But definitely not 2-3 days before the meeting. We are also uploading the back of the postcard, which shows that we follow the recommendation to mention the trademark.
    And of course, we carefully choose a place for the postcrossing logo, according to the rules for its placement!

Regards, Anna


Thank you for your feedback.

Page 2 of the Postcrossing Logo manual gives an example of which blue or red colourings are NOT to be used under the logo. We don’t specify colour names as such so there is no confusion with different languages.
