demonwithredeyes asked: Ooh, artist trading cards? What are those? Aaa sorry for the stupid question. xD
Not a stupid question! I didn’t know what they were until about a week ago, so no worries. Lol.
ATC’s (artist trading cards) are handmade 2.5 in. x 3.5 in. cards with custom art on them. They can be printed in bulk, but most are one of a kind/made from scratch. Their original purpose was to trade with other artists and whatnot, but it’s not unheard of for them to be sold at conventions and online. (Some of my favorite artists do this!) :)
Here’s a wikipage all about them! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist_trading_cards
Most are made on bought card stock paper, but since I couldn’t afford to buy some, I just made mine from cardboard comic book protectors. (They’re just as good, and I can get six of them from just one protector!)
I hope this was helpful! If not, there’s tons of info on wikipedia and google! :D
Anyone else making artist trading cards? (ATCs?)
I haven’t made any yet, but I really adore having art from my friends! So I’m hoping to make a few trade requests and send them through snail mail. :)
(I’m planning on doing at least 6!)
Note me if you want to trade! :D
