    Default ADDRESS Art Trades - Rolodex and Ringed - Ongoing

    The ADDRESS TAG art thread

    This thread will be ongoing so sign up or drop out when you wish, trade whenever and with whomever you want at any time.

    We trade two types of address tags here: Rolodex and ATC sized tags. Please see below for descriptions and guidelines for each.



    ROLO GUIDELINES

    1. The rolodex card size is 3" x 5" (though please check with each person as some are different)

    2. Set up your own trades via PM or on this thread.

    3. The format for the address rolodex card should be uniform:
    • user name on top and first
    • real name
    • mailing address
    • telephone and/or email are optional

    4. Most often, rolodex cards are artist's choice. Rolo cards are a reflection of the artist you trade with and should look and feel like them and their art. If you really want to have your rolodex themed, it's up to you of course. Please discuss any custom themes with your trading partner BEFORE agreeing to the actual trade. Not everyone will be into creating themes to order.

    5. Rolo cards are decorated on the front and the back. Please leave a bit of room somewhere for any possible address change.


    PARTICIPATING ARTISTS

    c = circular rolodex
    f - flat rolodex

    NOTE: When making rolodex cards, if the person has a "c" behind their name it means they have a circular rolodex base and the art on the back should go upside down (holes at the top) and if the person has an "f" behind their name it means they have a flat rolodex base and the art should go in the same direction on the back as on the front (holes as the bottom).

    ROLODEX TRADERS:

    • Amerasu - Artist's choice (f) - Will also trade ATCs, moos, postcards, inchies, etc. if you don't rolo!
    • Pochadiva - Artist's choice (f)
    • ParadoxSketchbook - Artist's choice (f)
    • DmytLadybug
    • AnnD - (f)
    • Nanner - Artist's choice (c) cards between 2-1/4" to 2 3/4" tall work best
    • Icekat - (f)
    • Pabkins - (f) Artist's choice, rolo cards are 4" x 6"



    ONE RING ATC SIZED GUIDELINES

    What are they? ATC sized tags with the addresses of the artists who made them, decorated on the front AND the back. Use a single binder ring to keep them all together.
    1. Contact anyone you want to trade addresses with.
    2. Create an address tag for your partner using one of the themes in their profile or listed below.
    3. You are decorating both sides of the tag. One side is for your super awesome art, and the other side is for your address.
    4. TAG Template (PDF attached below) is an 8.5 x 11 PDF file. Print out on card stock, or cut out one to use as a template for matboard, watercolor paper, etc. If you are using something thinner than cardboard, put two to three pieces of plastic packing tape on the back of your tag. Do Not Punch The Hole Yet! Lightly sand the tape. Then glue on a backing of decorated scrapbook paper or other paper. THEN punch your hole. This plastic will act as a hole reinforcement and protect your tag from wear and tear!


    ONE RING ATC ADDRESS CARD TRADERS
    • catpratt - Artist's choice
    • ParadoxSketchbook - Artist's choice
    • Dina54 - Artist's choice
    • Wildholly - please message her for details





    Below are some samples of rolodex cards (and holders) and some ring tags too from Dina54. Very cool looking, right? It's a fun way to trade art.

    Sorry everyone. The other thread has an internal server error that I can't fix so I have to start a new one. I will delete the other one so as not to confuse you all!

    Add me to the tags Sal. I prefer them made in the artists' own choice of theme/style.

    Can you update my rolodex to flat? #"x5" and artist's choice

    Also I would like to get added to the ATC Tag list as well. I am open to the tags not being rounded at the top. And artist's choice
