do you also send your mail art through postcrossing?
tell it here! ☺
This group does not have any discussions yet.
Yes, I just began doing the postcrossing thingy back in April, you know, way way back in April. Anyway it is nice, but I notice some of the people ar very particular about what they want for a post card and I can't help but compare it to mail art where the gift is appreciated as long as it goes through the mail. It is an interesting contrast.
regarding the search for touristy postcards.
i like value village and antique stores....
old photos and cereal boxes...
call girl ads and Marijuana tourist maps...
i send anything i can cut into a postcard shape!
i mostly pretend i am from other places...
I make schtuff up & Why Not....
Why does Postcrossing have to be so serious?
You came to mailart to express yourself - Do It!
Be a rebel and actively resist within their rules.
Viva La MailArt!!!!
I have been a member of post crossing for almost 10 years...
after getting in trouble with them initially .....
i discovered that the back of the postcard is my space.
They are only interested in the front.
as a form of active resistance,
I still send handmades to people who, when reviewing their outbound" seem cool.
I still send a regular postcard with the mailart to "Follow The Rules"
or attack the back of the card.
Just joined both IUOMA and Postcrossing!
They don't mind my hamsters who always seem to invade the page when I start working and lovely Totoro character stamps. I have to be careful not over stamp otherwise there won't be much space to write.
:) I just draw new addresses and got a lady who wrote that she would prefer handmade card. But yea...these are few. I thing that I only had similar profile once before in my postcrossing history. But you are right jazzie, most of them don't mind when you draw to other side of postcard instead of writing.
I'm new to Postcrossing and before I joined I thought it would be a great place to use the handmade postcards I have as my stack keeps growing taller! The majority of profiles I've read don't favor handmade, and that's ok, I decided not to send something I spent a lot of time on to someone who doesn't want it. Most people want to find out more about you or your country.
I live in a vacation destination so you'd think finding touristy postcards would be easy, right? I can't find any new ones and don't have any idea where to look and keep my eyes peeled everywhere I go but so far the only place I've found any are at a thrift store. The price was great and I managed to figure out a story about photographs that related to me. I also "decorated" the writing side with some mailart. One card has gotten through and the receiver was delighted with everything -the card, the story, the art.
In addition, there is MailArt tag thread in Postcrossing forum! I also send decorated envelopes when participating in item's tag!
