ok.. I have a peeve about people who sell ATC's. They are called Artist TRADING cards for a reason. When started, the ATC was intend to be TRADED. They are not to be sold.
"the concept of ATC is the person-to-person trade, as well as trading by mail. the most fun is to trade person-to-person though. the basic idea is the card-for-card trade."
"it is important that you meet other people in person to trade - i.e. it is ok to trade by mail or to participate in editions but the main purpose of this performance is the trading session and the personal meeting. It's not about money: participants in trading sessions and editions should not be charged any money: the point of the project is the exchange of cards as well as personal experience."
-ARTIST TRADING CARDS
A COLLABORATIVE CULTURAL PERFORMANCE
Profit was not, and should not be the goal of the artist in regards to ATC's. It is the experience, the relationships, the contact with the other artists that is fundamental.
OK. I'm done. PLEASE, if you are going to sell art that is 2.5" x3.5" then don't call it an ATC.
Thanks.. Call it an ASC. (Artist SALES card or APC..Artist Profit Card)
