I haven't been to a postcrossing meetup before, but if you'd bring some postcards to swap, that would be fun. Usually, people also write postcards to other postcrossers (especially postcrossers they know from the forum) and everyone signs the cards....

I'll be bring some but of course not my entire collection, I will also be buying some and writing some. I think bring what works best for you. Nobody wants to be toteing around tons of postcards.

Postmark


<<<To clarify the confusion about a special postmark available at the Old Post Office:

The thing lapoussine35 is talking about is NOT a postmark for stamping mail. It is a National Park Passport Stamp http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Park_Passport_Stamps
Some people who are into visiting all the National Park Service areas buy special "passports" (they are of course not real passports), that they get stamped at a Ranger station when they visit each place.>>>

I have one of these passports. The rubber stamps at the National Parks & Monuments & etc look almost identical to post office cancellations. Name of the place around the inside of the circle with a rotating date (M/D/Y) in the middle. So we could stamp our cards with that day as the official meetup .

Looking forward to meeting more postcrossers around the country.

oh, we may need another ink pad to use with their rubber stamp. I have found that different parts of the country, use a different color of ink for these cancellations. I have found that some use a very light color ink, which does always show up very well. ...not to mention that it does fade over time.

Mood: Postcards make me happy...

[*] posted on 22-2-2011 at 12:39 AM


I wish I could go I so want some DC monument cards. I have a niece that lives in DC and I've been trying for 6 months to get her to pick some up for me. I said I would pay for the cards and postage to send them to me but nothing. If someone would be willing to pick up say 300 cards for me I will send you the money in advance and cover postage to send them to me. If so u2u me...

So far so good. I saw your U2U but have been busy at work. I am going to adjust the times slightly for Saturday activities but nothing drastic. Nothing is going to change for Friday and I will bring copies of the agenda with me to dinner for anybody who might have limited internet access between not and then.

All, please read the update I made to the first post. The location of dinner tomorrow night has changed to 6:30 at Capitol Brewing Co. Please contact me directly (U2U or email) with any questions or concerns as I have a lot to do today and won't be able to monitor the thread.
