Show off your Custom Cards!
I decided that it seems a few of us are starting to try our hand at custom cards so I thought I might start a thread for everyone to show off their work!

I am working on making cards for all living Disney voices I have several movies done but I thought I would start off by showing these. Once I get them printed i am going to send them off and get them signed. I have made a few cards, like Hal Smith, Tony Jay, Jerry Orbach, and Mary Kay Berman for actors that have passed, maybe I can "cut" some auto's into them some day.





By the way does anyone know how to make the pictures from Photobucket smaller?

Looking good Chris. I'll post some picks when I finish my little set.

Have you ever sent any off and have them come back signed?

As for the photobucket thing, I can't help you there, I just thought whatever size you saved the picture is the size that shows up.

I have sent a lot of cards off to get signed from Castle and Supernatural and have only gotten one back so far (see below) but I am sending off alot more and I am told by alot of people that it can take a while to get cards back. Fingers crossed!

Nice..When you get the picture you want hit the first tab on Fotoflex and hit the "Autofix" button this will sometimes clean the image up a little. If you don't like it hit Undo and it will revert.

I'm having problems saving the picture to my computer. I go to the save to computer page, press the button, a box comes up to create a file name and to save, which I do, but then I can't find the photo in my system??

I'm gathering that when you go to the site to organise printing you would need the photos saved on your computer rather than fotoflex?

hmmm...thats odd. Yes the pictures come off the computer for printing at artscow.

Which cards and stock do you use for trading cards?

I use the blank playing card stock from Artscow. It costs 11bucks for 54 cards

I can't get over how cheap it isSmile If you've got the time you can create complete base sets for shows they've never made or finish sets that were never completed, like with Supernatural. Chris have you done a base set for all of season 4?
April 08, 2012, 03:07 AM
Chris Cline
Yes I made a 72 card set for season four. I did three cards for every episode then filled the set out with some quote cards and a checklist.

Oh man I REALLY like the look for those. So cool!

Are you using Fotoflex? If so how do you do that blend thing around the spot to sign?
