Inspired by the many trading cards of the past, artist trading cards (often called ATCs) are a new way to trade. 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~

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 hand make, i think!) and should probably contain your name, contact information and anything else you’d like to include! If they’re part of a series you can also number them, ex. 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!
