Card of the Day: My Wedding Trading Card

Only fitting that my first post back after getting married features the card I had given away as a wedding favor to my family and friends who attended my wedding a couple of days ago.

The design was done by myself and actually took awhile to do because of the specifications needed to get it printed and looking good. But it was all worth it in the end as the card turned out perfect. The back of the card was my favorite part of the card as I was able to utilize a great picture and create an image that looks sort of like the writing is on the wall.

Overall, it was definitely a great conversation piece during the reception as it seemed like everyone wanted me to talk about how I made the cards and how nice they were. It’s definitely a great idea for any card collector. If you have any questions about it, shoot me an email.

And now I leave for my honeymoon. I’m going to try and set up a few posts for when I’m gone, but I’m not sure how many I’ll be able to churn out tonight. I have some reviews I NEED to post, but time has been an issue.

But I’ll be back to posting full time in a week and a half or so.

 

Custom Cards: My Wedding Edition

As some of you may have heard, I was given permission by my fiancee to create and produce some custom cards for our wedding as little wedding favors. While my fiancee has been busy creating the “official” wedding favors, I finally took the time to create the secondary wedding favor that will surely be a crowd favorite.

While it’s nothing spectacular in terms of design, the photography should be the most important aspect of this created card. These cards will be full-bleed, so just imagine the outside cut down a little bit.

I will be having 75 printed, with one card encapsulated by PSA. The encapsulated card will obviously be ours and we will be distributing the rest of them at the wedding reception.

I was considering hand numbering them and/or placing them all in toploaders with a custom sticker making sure the toploader stays closed, but I haven’t decided on that part yet. I was also considering making another version and putting that version at an odds of 1 per table, but that tacks on a little bit of extra money.

In the end, it will create an interesting keepsake for the family and close friends invited to the wedding and reception, some of which collect sports collectibles themselves.
