Great Deals for ACEO Lovers!

I am happy to announce that my book is in print and I am planning a Family Art Night at my school where students and families will be making and trading Artist Trading Cards! 

I set up my first Alchemy Request, but after some help from Etsians elizabeth4510 and MrsMJ, I wound some very cheap ways to buy 2.5"x 3.5" blank ACEO cards!

ACEO cards can be cut for CHEAP at Kinkos. Here is part of a convo I had with MrsMJ!

All you need to do is get a ream of Cardstock in the color that you want and take it to Kinko's. They have a cutting machine. If you tell them the size you want, they can cut the paper for you. My Kinko's charges me about $1 a cut and can cut a half a ream at a time. So it should cost you around $12 to cut your ream (which will cost anywhere from $5-10). A cardstock ream usually has 250 sheets in it, so if you cut the entire thing, it will yield 2000 ATC's That will last you a LONG time! :)

She is new to Etsy, but already is a smart shopper!

Elizabeth4510 gave me the link to Oriental Trading (which I never knew even sold these)!

I am probably putting a few people out of business, but us teachers and artists have to stick together!

**ATC artwork above is by Will, age 11. He is one of the student artists a part of the ACEO book. His trading card is called Crazy Mug.

Hey Jill! Love your blog as well. Linking to this one if that is ok! I am getting the first set of copies on Monday! I am also presenting at the conference in the fall if you attend that. This is so exciting! Thanks for the interest. I am wanting to open this up to other schools next year or at least an all school edition!

There is also a blog for the book at:


Hope all is well!
