"What is a good mail day?" A day when, instead of just bills, catalogs, and advertisements, your postal carrier delivers artful, beautiful, or personal mail from friends and acquaintances.

What about mail art? “Mail art is an art form with a long and fascinating history populated by famous artists as well as everyday practitioners. The term "mail art" refers to pieces of art sent through the mail rather than displayed or sold in traditional venues. Mail artists often use inexpensive and recycled materials including postcards, collage, rubber stamps, and photocopied images. Mail art is a fun way to connect with people.”

This swap will be for:

  • One partner
  • One decorative outer envelope enclosing

For this swap “decorative” means more than one sticker, washi, doodle, drawing, painting, stamped image or otherwise bright, cheerful, happy ornamental aspect on the outer mailed packaging that’ll tell the recipient what they’ve received is gonna be good, fun, smile-worthy mail! 🎨We want this good mail to stand out from the bills and junk that’s usually in our mailboxes, correct! 💌

  • One piece of mail art made by you (ATC, PC, Tag, Folio, etcétera)
  • Read partner profiles to avoid any overt dislikes, otherwise the art is “sender’s choice”
  • Remember to include your swapbot username and the title of this swap inside the envelope
  • Rate promptly upon receipt of your mail art to thank your partner for making it a good mail day


swap image and description from and/or inspired by the book titled “good mail day”.
