Coudal partners Swap Meat

The Chicago-based advertising and design firm Coudal Partners noticed that from time they receive unsolicited items in the mail... books, photographs, tee shirts, posters, stationery, stickers, games, pins, you name it.

"So..." they thought..., "what if we didn't just wait for stuff to come in, what if we asked people to send us items? And then mixed everything up and sent everyone back something different?"

That's the idea behind Swap Meat, and you can join in. Just send them something that you've made, and they'll send you someone else's stuff of approximately equal value and coolness. (They have a few other rules, mainly to make sure that people don't just empty out their closets and ship them a bunch of crap. Here are the complete rules and the address where you should send your item).

Want to see what type of stuff they've been getting? Check out their gallery of recent items. Want to join the Swap Meat? Send 'em something by the end of the month.
