    I usually use a pice of bazzill as a base on mine - I dont have pokemon/gaming cards, its always been ok so far. Printing images to use on your atc is great, but if you are creating an atc in a digital format and then printing it out for a trade then you should say that its a printed digi creation, and also if involved in swaps check that the swap rules allow for digi atcs.

    as long as you you stick to the 2 rules for atc's then just about anything goes, size must be 2.5" x 3.5" and you must sign, date, number the back and provide your location. Have fun!

    Having read this thread thought I would look at some experienced ATcers and WOW they are so talented. Hope to have a go as this looks really interesting.

    Size is the only important thing in ATC's adn just to prove you can use anything as a base, here is one made from a laminating pouch. It is much nicer IRL.

    Do people tend to decorate the back or is it just the date, location, signature and number on the back that matter? I have been inspired to make my first 5 cards having read this thread-they are in my gallery! I have tons of stamps from when i was a card maker and can see an outlet for their use now so I am very happy to have discovered this thread!

    oooh - they're lovely!

    (and no - no need for the back to be pretty, it just needs the right info on it)

    cheers

    If you want to stamp straight onto the cards stayzon is good or permanent markers.

    You can sand the cards first to give them some grip

    Some people dont like atcs unless they are 2 and a half by 3 and a half but I dont mind some of the best ones I have got are playing cards

    I would love to have a go at these. Do you only make 1 of a particular design or do you make them is small "sets"?

    You can make as many as you like sometimes I do sets of 9 as you can decorate A4 and get 9 from a sheet

    But number them 1 of 9 2 of 9 etc

    But 1 on their own is fine too

    I put on the back of mine:

    the number of the card (plus a 1/x, 2/x etc if it's in a set of similar cards)

    my name, signature and date

    Swindon, Wilts, UK

    and my email addy usually

    oh - and the 'title' / 'name' of the piece, if it has one (I don't always name them - depends how pretentious I'm feeling that day LOL)
