2017 Informal Exchange

Interested in a less formal way to send and receive art in the mail?   Here are the names and addresses of others who enjoy swapping hand made postcards or other types of mail art.  Add your name and address at the bottom of the page, and feel free to introduce yourself!  If you don't feel comfortable posting your mailing address, you might start with a contact email address.  You may send mail to anyone on the list, 
being sure to include your return address. 

I'd like to use this page for names/addresses/introductions only.
It makes this list a lot easier to read
when there are no additional comments.
>>To leave a comment for another artist, please click on the "RECEIVED" tab at the top of this page.<<  
Scroll down to the bottom and leave your comments 
on that page instead.

The  "WANNA TRADE?" page (see tab at top)
is also a good place to connect for 
informal mail art swaps.

NOTE:  We usually refresh this "INFORMAL EXCHANGE" 
address page at the beginning of each new year.  

PLEASE put your return mailing address on every piece of mail 
you send out, in case there is a delivery problem.  
Also, including your email address allows recipients to respond more quickly. 

For INTERNATIONAL SWAPPING:  Indicating the country of 
mail origin and country to which you are sending mail, in larger/bold letters 
last thing on the address and self-address labels, will help assure delivery.  

If you're having trouble adding your info, or you need your 
comment edited or deleted,  just send me an email 
and I'll be happy to help you.  s.h.greenstamps@juno.com


  1. Hi! I just discovered MMSA a few months ago and within these few months have already participated in 7 swaps or so, enjoying the challenge of the topics and, most importantly, the inspiration that comes from other participants' art - not to mention the new friendships! I would be happy to informally exchange art of any kind. I mostly do collage work and, as a translator by profession, love to sneak in the occasional word to get a little message across. I have a huge collection of used stamps from all over the world, so if you would like to get some, just let me know. You can reach me on: andreaf@facettenreich.at

    My postal address:
    Andrea Farthofer
    Viehtriftgasse 10/16
    A-1210 Vienna
    Austria / Europe

    1. Would love to exchange mail art with you...I have been doing mail art for about 4 years and love the connection I make and love receiving the beautiful art! You can connect with me Kay Brennan 5 Beech Road Elliot Lake Ontario Canada P5A 2B1

  2. Happy New Year! I love postcards with your art!

  3. Excited about participating in 2017! Looking forward to developing new friendships and continuing the old ones. I always reply and if you don't hear back from me - let me know in a comment and I will try again (sometimes international mail gets lost). Enjoy trading postcards (collage is my favorite, but willing to experiment), ATCs and paper ephemera.

  4. Hello! After several months' hiatus due to a move across country, I am now settled and eager to participate in MMSA again in 2017. I love trading postcards, ATC's, painted papers and paper ephemera suitable for collage.

    1. Hi Danielle, I can absolutely relate to what you say. When I first discovered MMSA a few months ago, I sent out a dozen cards but only got a single reply. Still, I believe the recipients will be happy even if they do not find the time to reply. Will send something your way in the next few days! My details, if you wish to send me something, too, are the first ones in the 2017 list. Happy crafting, Andrea

    2. Danielle, Shall we assume that your country is ENGLAND?

  6. I'm in again for the 3rd year, will alway send back something, but it may take a while.

I think it would be really neat and they could help all kinds of artists by giving them a new perspective of art from all around the world.
