Pretty Postal Midnight Mail Swap

There's a definite chill in the air this morning.

Autumn is announcing its arrival with grey skies and wind. 
Long long nights and barren trees are just around the corner.

So it seemed like the perfect time to tell you about the Midnight Mail Swap...

Have you ever joined a mail swap or parcel swap?

If yes, bear with a moment (or skip ahead). If not, let me tell you all about the joy of the mail swap!

Someone picks a theme and sets some guidelines (number of partners, mailing deadlines, mail or parcel, type of contents, value of contents, surprise or not...) then welcomes sign-ups and assigns partners. You create beautiful mail and send it off to your partner(s) and in return, you receive mail from your partner(s). In the case of a parcel swap, this is usually a single parcel with a set value. With a mail swap, you send cards/letters to multiple partners and in return your mailbox fills with beautiful mail from here, there and everywhere.

I love a good mail swap! It's a fun way to bring cheer to your mailbox, inspires you to try something new while stretching your artistic muscles, and broadens your world a little bit by connecting you to likeminded strangers across the globe.

With that in mind, I'd love to invite you to join Pretty Postal's latest mail swap....

The Midnight Mail Swap

By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes!

Moonlight & stardust. Magic & masquerade.

For this Pretty Postal mail swap, we’re inviting you to get a little dark, maybe a little spooky, and create beautiful mail inspired by midnight.

Starlit nights. Wolf howls. Vintage horror movies. Black roses. Zodiac signs.
Anything goes... it's all up to your interpretation!


Sign-ups are open until September 30th.
Partners will be assigned by October 3rd.
Mailing deadline is October 17th.

You will be grouped with 2-4 partners and must send a piece of pretty mail to each partner by the deadline.
Swap is open worldwide to anyone over the age of 18 and is free to join.

Full details and rules can be found here.
To sign-up, you can email your name and postal address to:

Can't wait to see your gorgeous midnight mail!
