Artist Trading Cards?

itsmesuzqFebruary 2, 2007

I'm trying to find out where you can buy those artist trading cards that you trade with other people through the mail. I would love to create miniture works of art and then send them to others; along with getting theirs in return. But I'm wondering where do you buy the cards?

I found a couple of web sites where you can register and then send and receive the cards. But no where on those sites to they give you any information where you can get the cards to make.

Anybody out there know what I'm talking about?

Thanks so much ~Susan

Just use cardstock and cut the dimensions to 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 inches. Decorate anyway you want to and sign your name and info that you want others to know on the back. That is what we do when we do the scrapbooking ATC cards.

It was either Paint Works or Quick and Easy Painting that had an artists trading card project(s). You might check their web sites and see what you can find on there.

The great thing about ATC's is there is only one rule and that's the size. That is sometimes intimidating.
These are a great way to experiment with new and unusual art!! I hope you decide to share your work with us I'd love to see it!!
There are several galleries online, along with specialized groups just for ATC's and ATC Swaps on Yahoo.

good luck,
ginger

Oh my gosh....my sincere thanks to all who replied to my question. I love the site that Woodsy posted. And all your replies are so appreciated! I'm a regular lurker/poster on the KT....but I think I just found another "home".

Thanks again ~Susan

Here's a link to the Artist Trading Cards topic on Craftster. I haven't done any of these, but I keep looking at them thinking that I'd like to try it.
