I'm just about to attack my poster paper with my metre stick. I have a feeling I'll be needing a lot of blanks in 2012.

So I'm new at this ATC thing, especially on Craftster, and I'm curious - what do you all do about the backs of cards? All the ATC articles I read always seem to mention signing and adding the date plus contact info and stuff about sets and editions which I only sort of understand (the edition number would be when you make multiple copies of the same card?).  So do you all prefer to sign your name, your craftster username, or anything at all? And do you include other stuff on the back?

This swap is so much fun by the way Grin

Currently I write the title of the card on the back.  Then I put my real name and then craftster name, the date, my location, and the name of the swap it came from.  Everyone puts something different on there.  A lot of people put their email address on there too.  I stopped putting that on there because I got lazy with my writing.  ^_^  I used to have a print-off one that I could just stick on the back, but I kinda like writing it on there now.  I don't even both with the editions, either.  I use to, but I pretty much only make one of a kind cards, so its kinda pointless.  MargiePoo makes copies of her ATCs and sends them with original cards, and she puts the edition information on the backs of those.

Savage, I on the other hand, have only put my name on about half of the cards I've mailed out. And I only title them when I think of a title that amuses me. Like I titled all of Gozer's smoking animal ones, because I had mildly funny jokes for them. And I've never done the edition thing, because I've never made a copy, they're all OOAK.

So I guess different people do different things?

I generally put real name, email, date, and title. I've been known to completely forget to put anything at all. I think it's more of a whatever you want to put sort of thing.

I also really like it when people write where they are from on the backs of their cards. I have cards from so many countries - England, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, Greece, China just off the top of my head, not to mention Canada and the States - that it's always nice to remember how art crosses so many boundaries!

This is so exciting for me  Cheesy I've never made any ATCs untl now, but I'm fairly confident in my work. I absolutely love paper crafts, especially collage work. I'm getting to experiment with a lot of things I've never used before, such as embossing ink/powder, and distress cracking paint [not sure if I like that or not, doesn't work like I expected. I've got two sent off and have... I think three more I need to get done. One is nearly done, the other two aren't started yet  Undecided
