I ran across Let’s Swap on Notcot.com a few weeks back, and I’ve got to say it’s a great idea. I’ve swapped prints a few times on my own – but it’s mostly something that comes up after striking up an e-mail conversation with an artist I admire… Let’s Swap takes the awkwardness of starting up a conversation with a complete stranger, and becomes a middle man of sorts. Artwork is featured – and if you have something you’ve made you’d like to trade, you just fill out the a form – attach a few images, submit and wait to hear back! If you’re accepted for a swap – each side just ships off their items and that’s it!
I was lucky enough to be accepted for a swap for Cameron Moll’s awesome Colosseo letterpress – trading for my Number 11 print. Being an avid poster collector, I’m excited to see what new items are featured. I think it’s a great idea – and wish the site continued success!
