What info we need


To sign up, click the "join" button on the Artcrossing homepage. Please include the following information with your join request or it will be declined.
  1. Your name
  2. Your address (including country) (please read note at bottom)
  3. Your profile - a little bit about yourself and your interests (see below). The people sending gifts to you will NOT be given your deviantART ID so this is where they will get their clues about what sort of person you are and therefore what they could make for you!

What's a "profile"?


Please read this profile guide before sending your application. It should give you lots of ideas! If your profile is too vague you might end up having to rewrite it anyway, so best to do it all in one go ;)
  • If you're pushed for time, just read the "the basics" and "address" sections, they're the only critical bits for now.
  • If you're really pushed for time, read the "address" section (at the bottom) and then create your profile by answering the questions in the "Out of ideas?" section - that will get you up and running fastest.
  • If you have enough time, read the whole thing - making your profile the best it can be helps you to receive gifts really tailored to it :D

As soon as we've had a chance to check all of this, your application will be accepted. Once it has been accepted you can start sending art!

A note about addresses


:star: Please check the Universal Postal Union's recommendation for how to write your address correctly for international mail! If you don't give your address correctly, it may not arrive - or it might be returned and the sender would have to pay postage twice :(

Here are the links to the UPU recommendations:

UK - English
USA - English
France - English French
Germany - English
Canada - English French
Mexico - English
Czech Rep - English
Netherlands - English
New Zealand - English
Denmark - English
Finland - English
Russia - English
Poland - English
Norway - English
India - English
South Africa - English
Bangladesh - English
Chile - English
Australia - English
Serbia - English

If your country's not there I can add it :) Or you can find it yourself by clicking the first link and replacing the "gbr" part of the address with your country's three-letter country code (e.g. usa, can, fra, deu, etc.).

Did you read the journal you're commenting on? It's all there :) Let me know if there's anything specific you don't understand and I'll be happy to clear that up for you.

(Sorry for the delay.)

Can I send art but not receive it? Or not receive any until a later time?
(not sure I'll join but I'm wondering)
Reply
:iconitti:
Itti Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Is it because you're moving house? There's a bit of a delay between sending and receiving, because it needs time to arrive in the mail, a short delay before someone else gets assigned to make something to you and then of course the time it takes them to make it and mail it.

Normally the group is for sending and receiving but if you let me know what it is you're worried about maybe I can help more :)

No, it's more of a parental permission problem with giving out my address or setting up anything. I read what you said about it being only used for good things but they're scared of the internets. I think I'll wait a while to join.

Itti Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah okay. You could ask them if there's another address (maybe one of their work addresses?) or a PO box address you could use instead? Maybe they would be more comfortable with that.

This sounds awesome! :D One question though, would it be okay to only send things to the UK? International postage can be quite expensive and I don't think I could afford it all too often ^^
Reply
:iconitti:
Itti Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Unfortunately not. It's an international group so your partners could come from anywhere. But you are free to participate as much or as little as you like depending on your cash and how busy you are and stuff. And also postage prices can vary depending on what you send. Crafts can be more expensive especially if they're heavy, but flat things like drawings are much more reasonable.

MaxWIllustration Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Ahh okay, I've checked the prices and flat letters aren't too bad ^^ I'll just have to not do crafts often!

Itti Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
You could wait and see where your person comes from and if they are UK or Europe you could do a craft?
