Smile September is International ATC month

ATCards.com is announcing that September is International ATC month.

The artist-trading-cards.ch site explains that the concept of Artist trading cards was originally introduced by a Swiss performance artist, M.Vanci Stirnemann in September of 1996. And in April of 1997, there was a show of 1,200 of cards in Zurich, Switzerland. So that's how they started. Its origins also may also help explain the very distinctive predominant style of many ATC's.

The original artist focused on the performance art is the personal exchange.
And it seems the only other restrictions are that they must be original , personally exchanged (not sold) and be a standard 3.5" x 2.5". Which is not to say that your little work must be completely derivative.

While ATC's didn't start in a "stamping place", we here on SCS really "get" the value of exchanging handmade cards. SCS now has a special section in the gallery (under Anything but a card) for ATC's. It's a great place to see stamped samples instead of collage.

Happy International ATC month!


Nina
