Hi Darkest_Faerie --

It's glad you liked my ATC!

Since my images have a CC license that allows posting them  for non commercial purposes, i don't mind that you have them in the photo bucket. Sometimes my server goes down! The album with that series of ATC is at http://www.grey-cat.net/elainephotos/JEB-ATC2003.02.shtml.  Unfortunately, when i moved my blog recently, i broke some links. My notes about the images are now at http://www.grey-cat.com/ATC/?p=33

Cheers,

judith

I personally just buy cardstock and cut it into the squares, its not that hard to do but just time consuming!!! If you have one of those paper cutters it speeds the cutting time!!! I havent seen any precut ATC papers anywhere to buy but Im sure you could find some somewhere.   

I just saw pre-cut ATC cards on Oriental Trading Company's online shop. They also have a stamp for the back for the "fill-in" information.
I really want to start doing this, so I ordered the stamp.

Thanks for a great post with very useful information.  Cheesy

there are no "crafty" people in my area that i know of considering most people don't even know that delaware is one of the 50 states and not just some city in pennsylvania and well i have no one to trade with let alone just give them away! i know i could just walk up to people and hand it to them, but i'm anti-social. all the swaps are themed and i hate to be constrained. suggestions? sorry if this sounded like a rant. don't persceive me as a hostle witness... haha law & order is cool

*EDIT*
do you think anyone would notice if i made ATCs that were 3.25" x 2.5"... i have a pack of playing cards lying around, but they're not the exact size

Looking to do a personal swap for any boyish nursery print flannels! I can send polymer clay charms, purses, paper crafts, microscope slide pendant kit, and a lot more.

If it weren't for trading on line, I'd never trade. There is one scrapbook store and one craft ( so they say) store in the town where I live. I have to drive 20+ minutes to get to an AC Moore. Art isn't a priority, or even an interest to most people around here. There are several groups that do many, many, many different kinds of swaps, themed and not. Check Yahoo groups or MSN groups, or do a google search.

I have found people to be very anal about the size of ATC's, while its not something *I* personally would get my panties in a twist about ... I have heard stories of people being very rude if the size wasn't exact.

Saying that, as 3.25 x 2.5 would fit in the 3.5 x 2.5 format ..... it wouldn't be difficult for someone unhappy with the size to mount it on a piece of card the correct size.


I would like to mention the size and the fact that they should be traded and not sold are the the only two things that tend to upset people, as far as the art work goes .... Anything goes.

To my knowledge, I'm sure some people use playing cards...I dont think that it really matters. I saw somewhere mini ATC's too. (not too sure on the size though)

I would recommend if you ARE going to make the not the standard size you make it very clear to the people you are trading with .... I've seen people been pulled to bits in some of the more "elite" circles of ATC making.

Not that I agree with it whatsoever, I just have had to deal with some of the girls who got upset when these people were mean. I really doubt you would have that experience here at Craftsters.

ATC trading on the whole is a really fun experience for me, I trade several times a month  (check my site for full details http://www.skippityboo.com) and for the most part everyone is lovely and fun and great.

I just would hate to have you put off such a fun hobby because of this issue is all.
