Inspired by the many trading cards of the past, artist trading cards (often called ATCs) are another fun way to trade with a personal flair. I have a feeling that even non-proclaimed-artists should create ATCs — what a cool way to revive aged-pop cultures? I plan to attach bubblegum to mine so let me know if you’d like a bite~
The cards must be 2.5in by 3.5in or 64mm by 89mm (no exceptions ^^). They are also generally made as limited editions (it’s a time to relax and handmake something small and exclusive) and should probably contain your name, theme, contact information and anything else you’d like to include! If they’re part of a series you can also number them, ex. Moon Cats 3/6. It might be a cool idea to use different themes or criteria for each series to keep it fun~ challenge yourself and be creative!

I have a MILLION of these … my favorite one is from switzerland
I have a small collection of them that I adore! xox
I’m very temped to own some of these cards myself! I would keep them in a card album! I have not yet come across an artist I like, who has these, but this post serves as a reminder for me to ask!

Oh I’ll send you a little gift for your album if you like. Maybe you’ll try to create your own? It’s quite addictive! xox
I would like that, but I need to get a display folder first!
