I will happily attend the meetup! Anything specific I should bring? Or should I just bring my usual postcard supplies?

I’m interested. The initial title says 29 Sept. and the info says 30 Sept. I’m sure it’s the 30th, just before World Postcard Day. I’ll be there! I’ve started looking at the WPD cards being designed. Should be fun! See you in September.

papadick42 {horner} will attend am coming with seachange, will need 40 cards, hit the coming button and nothing happens

Will meetup cards be available? If so, I’d like to reserve 20 please. If not, I’ll order some WPD postcards from another source. Thank you for hosting!


Hello hello! I’ll do my best to be there. If there’s a meetup card, please put me down for 20. :slight_smile:

Just usual postcard supplies. We might do an icebreaker or activity for fun but otherwise just share cards for signing or exchanging.

We might do an icebreaker or activity for fun and should be plenty of us who can answer questions if you have any. Looking forward to meeting you.

I don’t have any experience with meetup cards. The library has a limited budget and isn’t able to provide them. I’ll see if there is anything I can come up with but otherwise not able to reserve cards for folks.

@saoirse253 No worries! @cherrytempest asked earlier if she can use her resource for meet up cards. Get connected with her. Once that is set, we can all place our quantity orders. The last meet up Postcard that we just had (in Olympia) was fantastic! It’s WPD, so it’s gotta be special!


If @cherrytempest is able to arrange for meetup cards to be available, I would like to purchase 20.
