What is a Pocket Letter

This swap is for a mini pocket letter which is one horizontal strip cut off a 9 pocket trading card protector

The front of each of the 3 pockets should contain an ATC and the back of each pocket should contain a decorative piece of paper cut ATC size. 2 of the pockets should contain small bits of ephemera. the 3rd one should contain a letter about yourself. Decorating the outside of the pockets is optional.

Instead of a free form letter you could find an “About Me” form to fill out like this one.

If you google pocket letters you will see lots of examples that are really simple and don’t look like they took much time or effort. We are not going to make pocket letters like that. We should all strive to make a quality product and expect to spend at least a couple of hours of effort on our pocket letters.
