Many of us make ATCs. Let's make an extension of the ATC format--a collaborative booklet.
Make a new deco, or use an ATC-size established deco if you have one.
The finished booklet should be 2.5" x 3.5" and fit into a trading card sleeve, at least initially--when full it is not expected to fit into a commercial plastic sleeve but should be 1/4" thick or less.
Fold 2 pages and bind them to the cover--pamphlet stitch style. It can be as simple as 2 holes in the spine with ribbon/twine/string passed through the holes to hold the paper to the cover. Stapling instead of stitching along the spine is OK. 2 folded pages make 4 pages, which makes 8 pages for contributors to decorate.
This size should keep the deco slim so regular lettermail postage can be used by everyone, and it has a better chance of getting completed and mailed back to you (or your "for" recipient) in about a year or less.
On the inside cover of your booklet include "for" and "by" snail mail and email information.
NOTE: Once you have received your deco booklet, decorate a page, then you can mail them to me (PM me to let me know), or check my list of swaps to see if I've got another deco swap happening, or pass them along to someone else, or maybe start your own deco swap.
Here are some other places that you can find people who want to swap decos (please feel free to add any deco swap sites you have found to the Discussion section below):
