FAQ

Pixel: Pink Pencil by apparateWhat is an ACEO ?
Also called an ATC (Artist Trading Card), ACEO (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) are small traditional artworks measuring exactly 6,4 x 8,9cm (2.5 x 3.5" inch). Artists create these cards to trade and sell.
You can find more information on ACEOs here - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist_t… or just Google ACEO (;

Pixel: Purple Pencil by apparateWho are we?
We are an ACEO trading group. Since there are no art-level limits, anybody can join! We arrange monthly ACEO trades and we are always looking for more participants. The more participants we have each month, the more diverse the trading options!

Pixel: Blue Pencil by apparateHow can I join ?
Simply click the 'Join our group' button! Please provide a traditional picture for us from your gallery! :D
(Unfortunatly we have to take a little measurement in people joining and not completing their trades, and leaving other member in the dark!)

Pixel: Green Pencil by apparateWhat medium do we use?
ACEO's are always tradionally made, But you are free to use whatever medium in the traditional range you'd like. Pencil and marker drawn ACEO's are the most common, but feel free to paint, papercut or use watercolours!

Pixel: Yellow Pencil by apparateIs this a animal/furry ACEO trade group only?
No, but most of members seem to prefer animal characters. Don't let that scare you! When we designate partners, you can note your partner directly and decide what works best for the two of you.

Pixel: Red Pencil by apparate How many cards am I expected to draw per trade?
The minimum is one. Normally that is all you will be asked to make unless otherwise specified in the trade description for the month. It is completely acceptable to do multiple cards with your assigned partner so long as you both agree to it.

Pixel: Pink Pencil by apparateCan we submit other ACEO's that we did not draw through trades?
Yes! Currently i have set a special folder for that purpose. 'NonGroup ACEOs' Is the way for you to go! Please only submit your best works in there so the folder can grow into one of inspiration for the whole group!

Pixel: Purple Pencil by apparateWhat are these 'Challenges?'
The challenges are just fun little art assignments you can participate in. They are free to join and are seperate from the monthly trades we host.
So if you just like to draw for yourself instead of joining in trades, this is a nice way to go for you!
Currently each new challenge is annouced at the beginning of each month, in the partner journal, if you like it, sure come join! They last the whole month! c:
I set up a seperate folder where you can put in the ACEO you drew for the prompt!

Hello everyone :wave:

And happy new year for everyone!
Let's make the best of 2021, may things get at least a little easier for all of us.
My country is now still in lockdown since mid /december, we never had one before so, yeah.
Things are getting along well though.

I hope things are a little easier for you all soon.
For the time being, let's prepare again for the new year by signing up for some new trades again!

Hi! I was just wondering if you have to post the card to your partner or can you just send a picture of it? Also, for each month is there a specific theme or is it like an art trade where we ask our partner to draw something in particular and they do the same?

Is it one card per partner per month? It isn't in your FAQ how many we're expected to make.

I've told my college ACEO group that I created about this group online. It's a very small college, but hopefully you'll get a new member or two ^^
