World Postcard Day - 5th Annual Washington, DC Postcrossing Meet-Up (Virtual) - October 1st, 2020


Ahoy-hoy! I hope everyone has been staying as safe and healthy as possible during these challenging times!

In an effort for some normalcy, the Washington, DC Postcrossing Meet-Up will still be held this year, but instead of an in-person event, it will be through the magical technology known as Zoom. :)

I'm having a few different postcards designed - please feel free to send me your digital signature/stamp so it can be added to the back of the card. Digital signatures are due by September 12th - if you're unable to provide one, a generic one will be created for you.

It's unfortunate that we won't be able to get together in person this year, but I'm looking forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new ones during this very unique time.

Forewarning: I've used Zoom all of three times, so this will be a fun experience. I may or may not accidentally turn myself into a potato for the duration of the call.

CITY/REGION: "Washington, DC" (or anywhere Zoom is accessible :D )
DATE: October 1st, 2020
TIME: 6:00pm-7:00pm EST
MEETUP PLACE: Zoom (link will be provided as we get closer to event)

I’m hoping to get as many signatures as possible by September 10th so I have time to add them to the back design.

I’ll most likely use My Live Signature (https://www.mylivesignature.com/create-signature-step1) for anyone that doesn’t send me their own design. :)

Hi there 🌻
I'd like to attend the World Postcard Day meetup. I'm new to the forum and it will be my first time trying zoom, so fingers crossed. Also how do you get the meetup design postcards?
Hope everyone is enjoying cooler temps & getting ready for fall 🌻
Thanks,
Blanche

Once I have the signature side of the postcard completed (hopefully around September 12th), I can email the hi-res front/back of the meet-up card to anyone that would like to use and print their own copies.

I'll most likely be getting some extra copies printed, but I won't be able to mail too many out since postage rates can get quite high.

If anyone has any suggestions for games they'd like to play during the meet-up, please let me know. I'm already planing a postcard scavenger hunt (more details on that later). :)

Thanks, Eric! If you'd like to post the event to the Meet-Up app, that would be wonderful!

Looking forward to (virutally) seeing you! :)
