This week’s solution offers a secure, efficient, and easy way to turn the classic Closed Gate fold into a self-mailing pocket format that can carry a thick insert. Citigroup sent this pocket mailer that contained 20 pages of printed material in the pocket. A simple line of fugitive glue closed the piece for mail. This “Low-Budget Wonder” is great for documents, welcome kits, fundraising, and more.
