Latest images: Trading Cards & Headers

First up: Trading cards

(Keep in mind I don’t do the printing of these cards-you will need to take them to a professional print shop- What I do is design the images and you get a jpg file 🙂

There will be more premades to come. Some have been watermarked with Fantasia Frog Designs through the center.

What’s hot right now?

Trading cards. For most people this isn’t ground breaking news, but for some, this might be the key to advertising your book and for boosting reader interest.

FFD will be posting a few samples and examples of trading cards in the coming weeks.

First: What are Trading cards?

Cards about the size of a deck of playing cards that provide stunning artwork, a quick reference to the character of a book/series, and a bit about the publisher/author of said book.

Second: Why?

Why get trading cards? From what I’ve gathered, readers, other authors, etc… like collecting them, similar to stamps and coins. Some have been made into games like “Magic-The Gathering”.  Because it’s a “thing” we do.

Where can I find out more about the culture/activity/production of trading cards?

Well! There is plenty of info now, click here for a website dedicated to the subject from Romance Trading Cards.com.  And to know how to create a trading card game, click here.

And now… off to the image laboratory to concoct trading card imagergy!


FFD Away for a bit

Hey all, thanks for stopping by.

I’m away from my computer for a bit (four – five days) off on a photography excursion, (ie camping with camera).

I’ll be back to answer any emails on Tuesday evening. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
