Hey, I'm having an Artist Trading Card party at my NEW library in February.  I wanted to show examples, or pictures of examples of some different ATCs. 
I thought it would be nice to ask permission to print out, link to, etc. some craftsters' work instead of just busting ahead Wink

I haven't started looking around for ones yet, but I thought just asking would be a good start. 
Thanks!!

It seems like it would be best to show actual examples of the cards, if possible.  I wouldn't link to people's work unless you PM them individually for permission, just IMHO.

I'm afraid that just printing them out won't show how nice they are in real life. What if you put a request in your signature line for people to swap with you? You could have a nice little collection of real cards. pm some people, and see if they're willing.

you should PM people.. sometimes prints don't do the ATCs justice.. plus, I create a lot of mine digitally, but then add embellisments, so you wouldn't get the "full" effect of them all.

yea.. PM people.. we're always looking to add to our collections!

If you can't or don't want to individually pm everyone- ask the mods if you can post a thresad for volunteers to send cards to you specifically for the program.
I am putting together a proposal for an exhibition in my local library and on another site I swap on they posted an announcement of the showing and asked people to let me know if they Didn't want their work displayed. Worked pretty well, so you might be able to post something listing the show. Ask a mod.

PS- don't panic Craftsters- I haven't mounted the show yet- I'll be in touch if I am.  PM

Sorry, you can't post a request like that on this board, but if you think it's appropriate, you could post in the "Crafting for Good" board. I'm not sure how much traffic that would get, though, and I realize you have a rather short deadline. I would go with the line in your signature and the pms.

Thanks to those of you who've offered, and thanks for the signature idea, racky!  I've been needing to change my sig since my Grand Return to Craftster, anyway Wink

I'm also thinking about having materials available around lunchtime for my coworkers, to get them in on the act as well.
