How does Post Card Party work?
It is simple.

  2. Shop purchases kits. (Kits are sold in groups of twelve. $2.50 each FREE SHIPPING to you.) 
  3. Shop plans and schedules as many post card parties (mini-workshops) as you would like from October 1, 2015  through March 2016.
  4. Shop picks a project(s) to be featured on the postcard and holds parties.
  5. Shop adds project materials/embellishment into zip bag along with post card panel and foam from kit.
  6. Customer's completed post cards (that want to swap) from each of your parties are collected by you. 
  7. You mail back your shop's completed postcards in one box from March 15-31 to Post Card Central.
  8. Post Card Central swaps your cards with cards from other states. (Return shipping of swapped cards included - no limit)

How do I price kits/parties? 
This is your event to be run how ever you would like to run it. Here are some suggestions:
