Send one Pass and Paste postcard to one partner.

You can join in at any time by starting a Pass and Paste Postcard, or by sending on one that you have received from an earlier round, or another swap.

Regional: USA/Canada

Pass and Paste postcards are a fun form of collaborative Mail Art.

New participants

  • Cut postcard weight paper to postcard size

  • Divide the front side of the PC into sections. Anywhere from 3 to 6 sections.


More examples: Pass & Paste postcards on Flickr

  • Decorate section 1. The postcard may eventually be mailed naked so securely adhere items to your section.

  • Turn the PC over. Address the postcard to yourself. Leave room for swappers to write notes.

  • Note: Do not include postage because the last person sending it home may not be from the same country as you!

  • Back postcard: Your address and divided area for swappers to leave a short note which will include a username and date, and anything else if there's room. (see the illustration above). Example of the back of the postcard

  • Theme: Open/Free theme or 'Sender's Choice'.

  • Any art medium (collage, draw, watercolor, mixed media, stamped, etc). Swapper's choice.

  • Mail the postcard, in an envelope, to your partner.

Next Round

  • Use the postcard you have received from another Pass & Paste round or another Pass & Paste swap.

  • Decorate the next empty section and then put it in an envelope and send that PC forward in another P&P swap.


  • The goal is to have each space filled out by a different artist, and then sent home to the originator.


  • When you receive a postcard with only one empty square left, decorate it and mail it back to the swapper listed in the address section. You can send it back naked, or in a plastic sleeve (postage stamp should go on the plastic sleeve), or in an envelope.

Start a new P&P postcard if:

  • You are assigned the creator as a partner. Do not send them their uncompleted postcard. Start a new PC.

  • You get assigned a partner and they have already worked on that PC. Hold onto it and send it in another round to a different partner (or you can send it to me if you don't want to join more P&P PC swaps). Send your partner a new PC.

Please, no blank comments. When rating please comment on the item received. Example: "Thank you for user123's postcard."
