    I had to edit the image to fit a credit-card sized NFC card, but it looks awesome:

    Inkjet PVC card, printed in a card tray and then sealed with a clear credit card-sized adhesive for protection.

    So is that not a NTAG215? I couldn't find inkjet printable NTAG215s anywhere, only NTAG213s

    Hi, great looking cards but im just wondering how you got the zelda icons that are in the top left corner down abit, because when i'm trying to set them up on printer studio it looks as if they will be cut off because they are too far up,

    It is NTAG215. I had to personally contact a Chinese vendor to get them shipped to me.

    I wonder how different they are compaired to the normal pvc NFC cards. Like I would be curious to know how well using the inkjet printer on a card that wasn't advertised as an inkjet printable card.

    Not well, unfortunately. The inkjet PVC is coated with a layer that allows the ink to print on the card (it feels like photo paper). Normal PVC cards are as slick as a giftcard, so the ink cannot easily adhere to it.

    Any chance at all you'd consider doing Tetra? I plan on making a custom Shiek.

    Have You seen in cards_HyruleWarriors.zip ? I don't remember, but I think she's inside
    Edit: No, there is only Toon Zelda. Because Tetra haven't her amiibo. In which serie should I add her, 30th?

    Sweet, I just ordered 100 NTAG215 PVC Inkjet cards too. Would you have happened to have kept the resized images? I'm thinking of starting a PVC sized collection.

    Where did you get them? I could only find the non inkjet ones. Am going to buy the printer to print on them but its like $1500 so I would prefer the inkjet kind. Once I get my the cards in the mail I will post all of these converted to credit card sized.

    those ones look a little bit too long for normal CC sized. The specs say the right size but the picture just looks like its too long.

    These are the same people I'm in contact with, LOL. Just sealed an order and they quoted about 9 days to get to me.

    That's because the photos that get uploaded to that site do not maintain their scale and get resized.

    hmm... well once you get them let me know if they work and are properly sized. Ive never bought anything off of alibaba and since they dont support paypal Im going to be overly cautious.

    Understood. I have a PayPal debit card so they can eat my PayPal either way. I have a Canon printer with the J Tray for PVC cards, so I'll let you know if they fit.

    The unit price was $0.35 USD per card so $35. The shipping though... I'm an impatient bastard so I chose FedEx freight which was $28 USD for a total order of $63 for 100 cards.

    The printer I got was this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AGV7TQ6
    I bought it in combo with this tray: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00P25H0BA

    BrainstormID, the ones that make the J Tray also can do custom order Inkjet PVC cards with NTAG215 but they wanted a minimum order of 1000. Maybe if I sold these things but I don't plan on doing that.
