The cancellation marks won’t matter so long as they aren’t on the stamps.

👍 That’s hilarious!!!

Also, use a dry erase marker and scribble on the cancellation marks. Then use the dry eraser and they come right off.

Art Media tracker series
Board: LTC: Trades and Trackers
Dec 7, 2018 7:22pm
I posted a new swap...it's going to be a series of swaps. I really enjoyed the art study swaps that we did because I learned how to use my products in a different way. I also was amazed at how others created their cards in the restricted art movement. The cards were so interesting and unusual...different ideas than what I had. It was great!

I don't think this series will be as difficult as our previous but you can get as creative and difficult as you want. You can watch youtube videos, search blogs, or just play!!

Let me know if you have questions...or comments??

My COWS! have come home from the first LTCoin swap with a few extras. If you're curious about coin swaps, send me a PM with your address and I'll send you one of the leftovers. They are lots of fun.

Extra Set Giveaway

Hi! Back in 2014 there was a Sea Monsters LTC swap that I hosted. A member had me keep a set for them, but they never completed their part of the swap and now are no longer active.

Since the cards have just been sitting around, first person to send me an AQ mail can have them. There are 10 cards in total. Also, if the person who gets them also wants to trade for some of my active cards, I can mail them with the set.

So I came across this post, and thought we need to ask him to join an ltc tracker. I bet he'd make something interesting.

Very interesting article.

I looked at all of the stamps shown on the article. None of the individual stamps are better than what I've seen on LTCs I've received. He knows how to put them together, and how to sell them. That seems to be the skill of a lot of people who become famous and/or rich from their art.

He is from Britain though, so any LTC tracker would be more expensive. Maybe we could get him to plant rubber stamps in Britain, so that they will have letterboxing like we do here.

Here's an idea for several trackers to be posted in 2019. Participants agree to watch an instructional You Tube video together and we will all experiment and try something new. The main objective is to learn and have FUN!

My understanding (certainly up for correction) is that they aren't into rubber stamps in letterboxes as much as we are. Isn't it here in the US that adding rubber stamps to letterboxes started? I know they originally had postcards in letterboxes, but have rubber stamps made their way back across the pond? They probably have.
2019 New Postal Rates
Board: LTC: Trades and Trackers
Jan 1, 2019 9:49am
Thread
You may be aware that rates are changing yet again on 1/27/2019. Forever stamps will increase to $.55 (from $.50) and extra ounce stamps will decrease to $.15 (from $.21). This is actually a cost break if you are mailing LTCs in large flats, which will cost as follows:
weight(oz) - price
1 - 1.00
2 - 1.15
3 - 1.30
4 - 1.45
5 - 1.60
and so on . . . averages are less than we are paying now - how’s THAT for a post-Christmas gift??
Consider buying extra forever stamps before the price goes up.

**The “first-class package” rate which we’ve used to calculate postage for the smaller padded envelopes (typically they exceed the 3/4” thickness limit) will change to a zone- based chart, so that will vary by person depending on the distance between the host and each participant.
