Artist Trading Cards are handmade creations the same size as baseball cards and other trading cards. People make them and pass them around. The Cedar Seed ATC page is a great introduction to making ATCs, with links to most of the major ATC web sites. I also have my own page About ATCs that may help to answer some of the questions newcomers often wonder about. I started doing these in 2001, and now have dozens of different designs done (most in editions of 20 cards). Most of my cards were done by soft-block carving (essentially creating a rubber stamp out of a block of eraser material and printing with it), although I have also done some by scanning in drawings or paintings and printing them. The number of cards in each edition is given in brackets.
