Artist Trading Cards
The very Basics
As their name indicates, ATC are collectable's, a brilliant idea born of the older
sports-themed trading cards. The one rule that makes an ATC derives from their origins:
the dimensions of the ATC must be 2.5"x 3.5", or 64 x 89 mm.
An ATC mustn't be sold, only exchanged, as the whole essence of these tiny works
of art is about artists meeting (by correspondence or online if need be) and exchanging
their works, thus meeting many artists and getting exposed to many personal styles.
Second, on the back of each ATC the artist writes part or all of the following information:
name, contact information, title of the ATC and number (1/8, 2/8...) if it's part
of an edition. By definition ATCs are made in limited numbers.
Send 10 or more Artists trading cards to Belscrafts, 12 Cannam Close, Whetstone,
Leicester, LE8 6ZP and receive the same number in return. In the future we hope to
set themes which we will judge to see which one we think is the top ATC of that theme.
An ATC swap page where you can swap your trading cards with others from around the
country, and beyond.
