Hello! The other one is “closed” and I am definitely coming to your Meet-Up! Excited to see everyone again :grin:

I have made myself some Postcrossing Meet-up cards to see how they turn out on a new printer. The other thread at this time has those photos on it.

Mark me as “tentative” for the Oct 1 Local Postcrossing group meetup in Renton.
I want to at least try attend one of the local meetings before the year ends.

Hi Harry, it will be great to meet you if you are able to attend. I’ll have extra WPD cards at $.30 each if you want to get/use some. Looking forward to this.

Hi Postcrossers, our order for the WPD postcards are being shipped from VistaPrint, and should arrive by the end of next week (the17th - fingers crossed). I’ll be mailing them out ASAP. A few of you have posted that you’ll get yours at the meetup. I will also have some (10-20) available for those that did not have a chance to order with me.
I’m looking forward to seeing folks, new faces and familiar. What a fun day to celebrate Postcards.

I’m planning to bring some of my other cards to trade/sell ($.25) if anyone else is interested.

How about a mystery swap? If you’re interested, put 5 of your favorite/least favorite/strangest/ funniest/whatever cards in a sealed envelope, and we’ll do a random draw for the mysteries. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Hi everyone, I made these up before merging the meet up with Kay.

I know the point is the WPD cards, but I do have some of these if interested and I could probably print more if people would like them.

I have 50 currently, and if I need to make more I will have to place an order this week to ensure it makes it on time. I can have them ready for pick up at the meet-up.


I also designed two other types, DM me if interested as I have not had those two printed.

Hello Kay! Yes, I will have a few extra, and if other people do want some please let me know sooner rather than later that way if it comes to it I will order more. :slight_smile:

Put me down for tentatively coming. I also will have a few extra WPD postcards.

Would love one of these!? I’m not able to come though.

One of the Seattle cards or the WPD card?

I had a question regarding mystery swap, can I bring several envelopes with 5 cards? I won’t expect to “swap” all of them for other envelopes, but was thinking if not everyone remembers or has any they’ve brought I could just let people choose an envelope for themselves if they want.

I have enough cards :rofl: I’d like to share some and don’t expect any in return.

I think that’s a great idea. I have so many as well, and since I’ve by making my own recently, I don’t use my original very-full-to-overloaded file of cards as much. I might make a few extra mystery envelopes as well.
