Two going out in a swap-bot “read in March” trade.

I told both recipients about a book I finished in March: Return to a Sexy Island, by Neil Humphreys.  I described that book earlier, in a previous post.

“The Puffin Puzzle Book” card is on its way to Cary, North Carolina.  My big box ‘o children’s book cover postcards, as I call it, is not all that far from used up.  When I started on swap-bot and Postcrossing just 8 months ago, they were all I had!  Don’t believe me?  Just head to the beginning of my blog.  When the cards were still numerous, I was able to find some component of each cover to match most users’ wish lists.  For today, a book cover postcard is a natural choice for a book-themed trade.

The Jetoy kitty on the toilet card is bound for Oregon City, Oregon.  I’m still dealing with the odd vertical orientation of these Jetoy cards, as I described earlier–I told this card’s recipient I hope the post office machine doesn’t cancel her address!

Do you send Jetoy cards, or any other oddly-oriented cards?  Do you go with the flow, as dictated by the card’s printer–or do you somehow force it into standard post office-dictated format?  I’m really considering doing some flipping on future sends, plus a slapping-on of an address overlay to overcome this situation.  When these first 3 cards I’ve sent reach their destinations–IF these first 3 cards I’ve sent reach their destinations–I will breathe a bit easier.
