    Halloween is over so it must be Christmas right?


    So if you would like to receive Christmas cards from your secrets friends around the world just send me a PM with your user name, real name and address.

    Due to the increased costs of postage can you also please let me know which group you would like to be included in:

    Domestic

    UK to UK

    US to US

    International

    UK to US to UK

    I will then compile the list of everyone who is participating and will send it back to you. You then get to mail a Christmas card to everyone on the list.

    I will take sign ups until November 22nd. I will then send out the list to everyone. Please do NOT share addresses with anyone not on the list.

    Helpful mailing guidelines:
    Airmail from UK to outside Europe:

    Up to 10g - 88p
    Up to 20g - 1.28
    First class mail from the US to other US locations is approx. $.65
    First class mail from the US to the United Kingdom and Australia is approx. $1.05
    The above applies to letters/cards that do not weigh more than 1 ounce

    Actually I think first class postage to the UK is now a minimum of $2.05. And if they are thicker than what the USPS can cancel with their machines (i.e. hand cancelled) they are MUCH more expensive.

    Thanks John, I was trying to find the latest prices but 2012 was all I could come up with - I know our prices have gone up a bit and I have added the new guidelines to that accordingly.

    Thank you for organising this Lisa

    You may want to check with your local PO Johnie, but I went to the USPS site put in 1 oz and out came $2.05

    Ummmmm...not sure at the moment.

    You don't get much Christmas card for 20g and the next price up is 1.88 for up to 40g. Multiply that a few times and it gets scary.

    Let me get back to you on this one.
