Default July Secret Pal Sign-up (Sign-ups close midnight June 30)

Hard to believe it is July already!

This is a monthly secret pal swap. There is a sign up every month, and you can
choose whether or not to participate each month. You will get a different partner
every month, and the person you send to will be different than the person you
receive from. Failure to send you package after signing up will be cause to be banned from all future swaps. Please do not sign up if you cannot fulfill your obligation.

After receiving your Secret Pal’s details, go to work and put together a package with something you think your pal would like. There is a $10.00 limit on this swap that does not include what you have in your stash. Most swappers do not mind like-new stash items. You will need to send me (hav4boys) a PM when mailing and receiving. This way I can keep my records straight. Also send a PM to your SP thanking them and leave feedback.

Please take pictures and post in group as everyone likes to see what you get.

Packages need to be mailed out by July 16th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by July 10th Firm.
If you know that you cannot mail by that date, Please Do Not Sign Up.

For international mailing it is very important that you mark your parcel as a 'Gift' on the Customs Declaration (there's a box you can check). Also, the value should be $10 only (even if you send diamond necklace). The person receiving the package is liable for Import Duty, Tax and a Handling fee. This can cost the person receiving as much as $40.

Padded envelopes are much cheaper to send compared to small boxes. These can be ordered free of charge from the USPS website.

You must have a phone # or email to sign up

Sign Ups will close June 30 and names will be sent out no later than July 2nd
If your pal does not receive her/his package within a reasonable time I will need tracking information. If there is an exception on the mailing, you will need to inform me ASAP. No one enjoys not getting a package after they have sent one.

Have fun and be creative!

I signed up! This will be fun to do. Can't wait to find out what my SP likes so I can start putting a package together.

Hello. This is my first swap! I sent in my form. Do we hear anything before we are assigned to a swap partner? I just want to make sure I’ve done everything correctly!
