    Default Official Travelling Trade - On-Going!

    To participate in this on-going swap you will need:
    iTrader of +10 (AFA iTraders count here)
    To be an active member of iATCs
    Have no negative iTraders from the last year



    Instructions:
    1. The first person in a group starts an envelope with 6 of their own cards. They can be cards you haven't gotten around to trading yet or you can make new cards.
    2. Please label your Travel set with the Group Number or Theme and originating artist as players often participate in multiple groups.
    3. The envelope is mailed to the next person on the list. They remove a maximum of 0 - 3 cards and replace them with cards of their own (must be made by you).
    4. You must upload the cards to this thread once you place them into a travel group. Then mail to the next person on the list and so on.
    5. You can choose to pass and take zero cards if there is nothing in the set that appeals to you. Simply mail to the next player.
    6. The last person on the list sends the envelope of 6 cards back to the first person on the list.
    7. IMPORTANT! This is a juried site so cards you send/trade in this game should be best efforts.
    8. Mailings can start once there are 6 or 7 people in a group. You can sign-up for multiple groups.
    9. This is an open swap for MMA and P&P.
    10. When signing up please specify which group you are signing up for.

    Artwork Quality & Passing on cards:
    • We want the Travel Trade to be a super fun experience for everyone each time they open one of those envelopes it should be with pleasure! We can all help make that happen by trading fabulous art.
    • The Travel trade groups are not a place for your unwanted art, old art, so-so experiments or cards that have sat around because no one hit you up to trade for them.
    • I know that sometimes we hang on to our favorites til we're ready to let them go or we've made ACEOs intended to sell and never sold them. Those sorts of cards are definitely eligible. But not the leftover cards you never posted since you weren't sure they were any good! So yes you can send in cards you've made previously for ACEOs, art-o-thons etc, if if they are iatc quality card but please use your best judgement in this. If it isn't a card you would offer in trade to one of your favorite artists/buddies or something you'd put in your iatcs application portfolio then it likely doesn't belong in the travel.
    • If you're worried and unsure then never fear just ask one of our friendly admins for their opinion (AnnD, Amerasu, Kosmicgirl, TF Balding)
    • You are 100% allowed to pass on the card set without taking one! It's possible that one or more of the original cards will make their way back to the set originating artist and this is totally ok! As that artist can always do as they please with the cards they created. Passing is fine any of the travel groups. This should help prevent folks from feeling they have to take a card when they aren't that excited about it, and thus putting in cards they aren't excited about.

    Participants must be ready to:
    • Mail anywhere
    • Make sure the envelope is secure and the cards are well taken care of inside. Please don't shove 6 cards into a small pile in an envelope without securing them somehow. Best thing to use is the first two rows of a 9 page sleeve.
    • Once the envelope is received, contact the person next on the list to confirm their address and ensure they are still able to play.
    • Mail the envelope within two weeks of receiving it. If this is not possible notify the moderator.
    • Keep the thread up to date on mailing and receiving the envelope.
    • Check the thread and your private messages regularly. (In the event that a player cannot be contacted for their mailing address for two weeks, we will skip that player & move on to the next in line. No itraders will be given. No harm, no foul; just keeping the game moving.)

    Non Themed Travel Groups
    • ***As of 1/1/19 we will be phasing out all Unthemed groups.The current groups will be allowed to play out their rotation, but no new unthemed groups will be added.***
    • Cards are artists choice of what type of card subject matter they are putting in as long as they follow the above instructions and stick to their juried category.
    • The non-themed sets could contain anything! You might see anything from a landscape, to a cartoon, to ugly insects. Because of this you might not find anything that appeals to you. For this reason if you want specific themes, you might be happier joining in one of our many themed travelling trade groups.

    Themed Travel Groups
    • Themed group cards must be specific to that theme. The themes are broad to allow for plenty of artistic wiggle room.
    • As we have a modest number of active members who might not all share the same interests please query the moderator or in the thread to see if others would be interested in your broad themed group before requesting to start a new group.
    • Group mailing for themes can start at 6 signups. If the envelope reachs the last person currently on that signup roster and there hasn't been any further signups to fill the group the originator can request it return home.
    • Themes must be BROAD and not too specific. We wouldn't want a group to not get enough signups. If your theme is too specific the thread moderator will let you know in the thread and recommend you start a Swap group instead.
    • If no one signs up for your proposed Themed swap group in 30 days that themed group will be removed so that a new themed group can take it's place. If there are not enough signups for you to mail your group after 60 days but there are folks signed up for it, you can choose to arrange personal trades or your can choose to start a non themed travel group instead. That group will then be removed from the themed groups.

    Examples of Broad themed groups:
    • Fantasy
    • Science Fiction
    • Sci-Fi & Fantasy
    • Steampunk
    • Horror & Macabre
    • Cartoons & Comics
    • Anime Inspired
    • Landscapes & Still Lifes
    • Tarot
    • Nature
    • Animals
    • SFF Animals
    • Fairytales
    • Creepy Cute
    • Under the Sea
    • Inspired by a Films genre (not a specific movie/show/fandom)
    • Inspired by books "Fairytales/Classics/Drama/Horror, etc"


    iTraders
    Please give an iTrader to the person who sent you the envelope and rep points to the people whose cards you take out of the set.


    IMPORTANT: Sign ups are not set in stone. If anyone signs up and then needs to bow out, PLEASE COMMUNICATE and comment to the thread you need to drop from a group! We can easily avoid any hiccups if you just let us know. No hard feelings and don't worry needing to drop won't prevent you from signing up for other groups.


    How to read the rosters:
    • Names in blue mean the travel set was safely received and has been mailed back out by that player
    • Names in red mean the set is currently in their possession.
    • You will see dates for recd (received) and mailed next to the most current status update for the set

    I'd like to join the sci-fi/fantasy group and the fairytales group, please. Still thinking about the anime group... the only anime I'm familiar with at all is Studio Ghibli so we'll see...

    Thanks for adding me. So for the anime, it can be anything done in an anime style? Animals, people, etc? Still something I'd have to think about but thanks for helping me clarify.

    Gwennie the "anime inspired" can be anime style or anime characters. So no it doesn't have to be fanart. If you wanted to try the style too that would count based on what dragonalloy messaged me. I'll add a one line of clarification beneath the theme)
