ATC is an artist trading card. i don't have any, i think they can be used for a number of things. i made one a little while ago for a friend on here. she wanted ones done with our picture and a little something about us.

other than that, i can't help ya, sorry.

People collect them. Some people use them on layouts. Traditionally they are only traded - never sold. The only requirement is that they are 2.5" x 3.5" other than that they can be decorated however you want.

I just started making ATCs. I did it because I had this brilliant idea to make my youngest DGS a binder with these cards in them. I have some baseball trading card plastic holders that fit in binders and I am going to put the cards in there. Some will have pictures of him. Some of his father. He can take them back to Arizona when he goes home and have them to remind him of us and his father.
