I haven't heard back....well grayciee said she was going to send me the design but hasn't yet. :S Did someone want to design another card too? :puzzled: Well we can always plan a proper meetup card for the next meeting if we can't have one printed for July.

If you pick a design I can get them printed in a very few days. Unicorn 11 and I are coming.

What kind of design are you looking for?

I still haven't heard back about the design. I'll try follow up. If I hear back I'll let you know Lynda. If not, based on suggestions/previous posts something with the CN tower or Canadian themed with some postcrossing theme mixed in?

If anyone coming from out of town would like to meet a bit earlier at the Toronto First Post Office, Im up for it! And then we can walk over to our meet-up spot together :)

I will probably be going anyways because downtown is pretty far for me so whenever I do go I try to stop by and get some cards specially postmarked.

As with the design, I posted a page of Canadian stamps in our Facebook group, if needed, we can add some of those on the card but I would love to have a special meet-up card for my first meet-up!! I dont know photoshop but if needed I can come up with something by hand :)

Also, I hope it's ok if I bring someone along with me. He's not a postcrosser but he offered to tag along :)

Looking forward to it!![/ rquote]

Maybe we can turn your friend into a postcrosser hahahaha

:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

@Beii: The more the merrier! :) Haha my boyfriend refuses to come (he lives dt) says he'd get bored. :P

@willyly: Do they actually let you just have them cancel the cards and leave with them at FPO? :o I've never tried it.

Not gonna lie, I'm pretty excited for the meetup....and more than 5 people are definitely coming! :lol: :D :lol:

What's happening with the card? July is coming quick and some printing do take a few weeks... That is one of the reason why we only did labels for our last meet (in May) in Montreal. For one it is cheaper and it was quite fast (I made them!).

Let me know if you need help, suggestions, with this, I love this type of things!

Let's decide on this - we need to order cards and promote this event, if we want more participants...

I submitted a postcard order on May 28th for one of my freelance clients and received my order today so it's about 10 - 11 business days to process. If we place it by this week, we should get it in time for the meeting.

How many did everyone want?

It's about $0.40 - 0.50 to print per card if we order 100 and it gets cheaper per card the more we order.

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/262616221996196782/ - this is cool, but I'd love to have Toronto somewhere on it. :P

Well...please vote everyone! We'll go with the most popular design. :)

Just a quick note and I can always add "Toronto" or tinker a bit with the design before sending it off to the printer (for whichever one we pick, even the skyline one).

Lynda is taking orders if one of her designs gets the most votes.

Can we finalize a design by tomorrow (Friday)?
Also, I'm not in the FB group so could someone just post here once the poll is over so we can proceed with printing? :)

So far the one with the black border has the most votes.

I'll be away from my computer for the weekend so poll closes Sunday

The Meet-up postcard has been chosen. Please U2U or message me to let me know if you want cards or not. I need to hear from CheshireKat, Grayciee, Rosiews, Beii, purple_madness, sugarbooger, lisarr and knitter007ca.

I need to know by Friday as there is a holiday on the week before the meeting so the time to get things printed is less than usual.

I said Friday and then realized I meant noon on Friday so I would have time to order.
Please place your order as soon as possible.

I don't think sugarbooger is coming anymore so she's off the list. Added deadline time to the first post as well.
