ATCs - Artist Trading Cards
by aisling d'art ©2006 - 2007
I've made art cards since the 1990s, in a variety of sizes. Today, most of my art cards are digital, and more of them are 2.5" x 3.5" (ATC size). The following cards are among my latest, and many of them include design tips.
Unless otherwise noted, most of these artist trading cards can be printed, full size and free of charge. (Several are 3" x 5" to display as prints, but can be scaled to 2.5" x 3.5".)
