1. ATC must be 2.5"x3.5", or 64x89mm.
2. Cards must be sturdy (cardboard backed or created on material that is not
flimsy or lightweight) Corners should be square. Edges should be finished and not rough or irregular unless that is part
of the design.
3. Make sure you understand the specifics of the swap. Communicate clear
objectives with your host/partner.
4. Art traded should not be of a controversial
nature. The participating teacher's are responsible for making sure that artwork of a controversial nature is not included
in their swap mailing. Clear communication about content expectations between swapping teachers should eliminate any
potential for offensive content.
5. If the swap host/partner doesn't reply within 2-3 days, send another
email. Sometimes emails are lost in cyberspace (especially on school servers).
Don't agree to swap unless you plan to complete the swap. If a participant has to withdraw or postpone
the due date of the swap, inform the host/partner as soon as possible.
7. While it is accepted that a wide variation
of creative/technical skill is apparent in every classroom it is not acceptable to send ATC's that lack an assumed level of
quality of workmanship. In general, 1st grade work should reflect the best use of the skills that average 1st
grade students' possess. AP or upper level art students' work should reflect a high level of skill or ability. Do not send
work that is flimsy, falling apart or unfinished. Follow the 'Golden Rule of ATC's' and send the quality of work to other's that
you would want to receive.
8. Remember to be open-minded to everyone's various forms of art. Specify any artforms you ARE or ARE NOT interested in swapping,
such as digital copies, use of photographs, stickers, etc., completely handdrawn only, etc.
to due dates. Get started early to make sure you won't fall behind.
10. Shipping is the sole responsibility of the swapping
partners. Package your items securely.
