Download the Swap Tracker

Today I’m sharing a post card video that I’m rather proud of. In it you’ll see everything from me painting post cards to printing and cutting out the backsides. I hope you’ll like the video, as well as the tracker I made for you guys!

Well, the tracker is for those of you participating in the DIY Postcard Swap I host, and yes you can still sign up and have time to make your postcards.

I designed a fun one page Post Card Swap Tracker with hope that participants will enjoy it and find it useful to keep organized. It’s easy to just print and fill in. I explain a bit about it in the video below, which is the second video I made this week!

The first one you can watch here, it’s about the fab Art Journal Le Jardin Lime that I’m giving away. Please join the giveaway in one or all the ways there is to enter. And don’t forget that by sharing the swap or the giveaway on Instagram you’re also entered, which I know some of you already did. Thank you!

iHanna proudly presents the DIY Post Card Video

In this my second video, complete with voice over and all, I share a bit about my process of making postcards. It’s kind of similar to what I’ve already blogged about in the series Making postcards from Scrath (part 1, part 2 and part 3), but not as detailed and this time in moving images.

Well without further ado, here’s the postcard video of the Year (!):


Mail Art Postcards by Studio iHanna on YouTube (click the link if you can’t see the video embedded here). Please leave a comment on YouTube if you can, it helps this inspiration reach more peeps over there. Or leave me a comment below and let me know how you collect and store your postcards for example. I’ve got mine in a cute DIY binder.

More Post Card Inspiration

I’ve hosted the swap for years and made mail art a long time, so there is a lot of inspiration in the archives of this blog.

All post card inspiration, resources and downloadables can always be found here on the home page of the swap, as well as the FAQ.

The main reason to use the tracker is if you want to keep track of who you send postcards to, if they write you back (just remember it’s not obligatory to e-mail a thank you note, it’s just a very nice thing to do *hint, hint*) and who you get postcards from this year.

Use the tracker when sending and getting handmade postcards back in iHanna's DIY Postcard Swap

Download the DIY Postcard Swap Tracker 2017 here – print a copy and fill out the name of the swap (fall or spring version) and the date when you should check your e-mail for your 10 addresses and then send them off. I think it’s pretty self-explanatory but if you have any questions I will be happy to answer them below or via e-mail as always.

You’ll know exactly how many you get, sometimes you sadly get less than 10 postcards back.

By the way, I have been thinking about sending out a survey to all participants of the swap this year, to see how many postcards you got back and from whom, and so on. Let me know below if you think that’s a good idea, or if you don’t care about such things? Would you fill it out for me? It would take some time to fill out the names of those you got postcards from, but if you’re using the tracker that information will be much easier to retain when filling out the survey… :-)

Happy weekend my dears!

    Your postcards look great! I’m almost finished with mine!

    I’d gladly fill out a survey related to the swap. I have never received ten cards. I’ve gotten 7-9, and have participated in I think four swaps now.

  2. Pam Parker says:

    Love your Post Cards. I too have rarely received all 10 cards back unfortunately. I am using a Post Card back that I downloaded in 2011. I have joined both swaps ever since then. Thanks for continuing with the swap.
    I wish there was a Face Book page for sharing our post cards.

  3. I will gladly fill out your survey! I did your postcard swap in 2016 and believe I received all 10 cards back! I had lovely interactions with the ladies who received my postcards! Love your swap! Thank you for your work on this, it’s so fun and creative!

  4. Christine Gordon says:

    Not only will I happily complete a survey, but I am so excited about your postcard swap tracker…brilliant!!! I have always kept my “send to” list, and marked all the cards I receive when I respond to the creator BUT these records are scattered everywhere! Thanks for this great organization tool.

  5. Sarah Lee says:

    I would definately fill out a survey if it was emailed to me. This will only be my second time participating. I think I got all my postcards, or at least 9 of them for sure…I think I got the tenth but it was super later than the others.

  6. Erica says:

    I loved watching this video. Thank you for sharing! :) I’ve been reading your blog off and on for years now and I’m not sure if I’ve ever heard your voice.

  7. Teresa says:

    Thanks so much for the tracker! This will be a great tool to use with the swap. I would gladly fill out a survey. I’ve never gotten 10 postcards back, and on the flip side, I’ve never heard back from everyone that I sent cards to. It always makes me worried that the postcards got lost in the mail.

    Also, thanks for sharing your process with us…it’s been fun to watch! :)

  8. Rossetta Hanna says:

    I would be more than happy to complete a survey. Hopefully, it would have a place for suggestions. You never know what wonderful idea someone else might contribute, although the swap seems perfect to me at this point. Love this postcard swap. I received 9 cards last year, but they trickled in at a snail’s pace (which was fine with me).

  9. Alexandra says:

    I will be happy to fill in your survey. This is my first time doing the swap and I have printed the tracker. My cards will be in the post tomorrow!

  10. Sarah says:

    Yes I’d be glad to fill out a survey after the swap is over
