Hello and Welcome to ATC-Community!

ATC-Community is a new group dedicated to the creation and trading of Artist Trading Cards. What are Artist Trading Cards (ATCs)? Well, the easiest definition was found on Wikipedia:

Artist trading cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern trading cards baseball cards, or 2 1⁄2 by 3 1⁄2 inches (64 mm × 89 mm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or fiber. The cards are usually traded or exchanged.

ATC-Community is a friendly group for art traders. We encourage members to interact with each other (really now- how will we trade art if we don't?).

I have some old ATCs I made some time ago that never quite made it to anyone else. I was wondering if anyone else with a stock of old ATCs would be interested in a blind trade- which is pretty much when you exchange addresses and send out a mystery card.

Of course, you can always list themes you are not interested in before the trade is finalized.
