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. You can also google pen pal templates.

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.

If you meet these conditions, you can join in on the fun:

  • Has been a member for at least one month
  • Has posted at least 15 times
  • Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps
  • Does not have any negative feedback
  • Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old
  • If within the US, understands that a Tracking number is required for this swap
  • If sending internationally, understands that a shipping receipt with address must be captured

To participate, fill out and return the questionnaire below to organizer @geekgirl.
