There are no standard sizes for trading cards, so you can really make them any size you want. However, we recommend keeping them between two and four inches wide and three and five inches tall. This will give you enough space to include all the information or imagery you want without making the cards too big or bulky.

How many cards should I print per sheet?

Again, there are no hard and fast rules here. It really depends on the size of your cards and how many you want to print. Generally speaking, most people print between four and eight cards per sheet.

Can I use images or templates from the internet for my custom trading cards?

Yes! You can use images and templates from the internet, as long as they are high-resolution and you have the permission of the content copyright holder.

What is the minimum order quantity for trading cards?

There is no minimum order quantity for trading cards, so you can print as few or as many as you need. However, keep in mind that the per-card price will go down significantly as your quantity increases.
