A downloadable template

Templates for an alternative pocketmod design featuring:

  • No cutting required (though cutting between pages 2+3 opens things up!)
  • A long interior spread (half the length of A4 / Letter)
  • A usable full-page interior on the reverse (if printed double-sided)

The AFPUB file uses the IM FELL DW Pica Google font, though of course you can should do your own thing!

Now including a template for Swift Publisher 5. Thanks, Andre!

I love the format. I just replicated the templates for Swift Publisher 5. Do you want them to share here?

Sure! Either upload them to a cloud service and then share the link here, or go to my site (here) which has details at the top of the page with how to contact me on social media.


I made this using the Pocketfold format! Love it! https://chaoclypse.itch.io/pocket-scvm


Looks great! I’ve added it to the collection.


Pocket mod in the wild for DURF JAM https://manarampmatt.itch.io/durf-pocket-mod-character-journal

Awesome - looks great! Now added to the collection.


Great job on this!

Thanks! Just seen The Long Moonlight and it looks great!


Awesome and simple! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, and you’re very welcome! Love how you’ve implemented it with the Forbidden Lands of the Ancient Temple!


You just reignited my love for pocketbook game design. My 40+ page zine in progress is getting butchered down AND I LOVE IT

Awesome! Posted your WIP pics from Twitter here so people can see it in action. Happy it’s a good fit!


This would be very useful for physical playbooks and is quite unique in that way. 10/10 would fold again.



The RPG layout is quite useful with the foldover allows the rules and that part of the character sheet to be visible at the same time. This is great.

Thank you!

You’re very welcome! Please come back and link to anything you happen to make with it - I’d love to see it put into practice!
