This week we’ve been sharing the work and passion of artist Tracey Burhop who brought her extensive Artist Trading Card collection to last year’s Faire. Drawing crowds all day, her hands-on display had attendees making their own mini artworks!

Editor’s note:

Laura here and I’ll be making Artist Trading Cards for this year’s Faire! Why don’t you join me? Instructions here and we’ll trade at the Faire!

From the ATCs for All website here are the specifics for cards:

  • ATCs must be 2.5″ x 3.5″ (6.35 cm x 8.9 cm).
  • If your card backings are glued on, please make sure all glue is dried before mailing or before putting in a plastic sleeve.
  • Please put each ATC in a plastic sleeve. Plastic sleeves (also called penny sleeves) can be purchased at sports card or hobby stores. They cost approximately $1 US for 100 sleeves.
