    I modified the Super Smash Bros. cards to PVC size to compliment your work

    Dude thank you so much. It's been impossible for me to find a complete copy of pictures for pvc. I've found incomplete sets of full sets of incorrect sizes. Downloading right now for immediate printing

    Why do people act like it's hard to make the pvc cards. you just get a template and fit it in that template. I assume your using a custom tray and not a zebra printer. I hate pvc cards they feel awful most of the time they have scratches on them so they are pretty naff, plus you waste more ink as you have to print to the edge, cleaning the custom tray to make sure ink doesn't bleed on the back. I prefer getting some high res photo card and making my own. They look so much better and the colors really do show up. PVC on the other hand, you are limited by the design especially if your printing from a printer cd tray, plus not to mention the faffing around with setting the printer up and making sure it's printing correctly. I think I made one full set it paid for the tray and the cards. I just stuck with creating cards after that I only create pvc cards for thoose that really do request it. The only thing I can think of for pvc cards is for kids that bend them but then again the materials used on the pvc cards, it would be best not to give it to kids, they smell quite toxic.

    These are my cards. Of course you have to hand make them and cut them. It's best to get the right tools for the job, but they are worth it in the end. They look great, feel great and people really like them. PVC cards are just lazy :)

    No I don't have a fancy printer with pvc printing, I don't have much skill in photo editing, and the playing card size does not properly fit pvc without cropping, changing its aspect ratio (which warps the image), or modifying the original file, which most I've seen posted use paid software or use software I don't know how to use.
    Printing the card is easy once you have a proper image, otherwise you'll end up with parts cropped of or a squashed image.

    For printing I print onto sticker paper, laminate the front then apply to the pvc card. Cheaper than going out and buying a printer that supports pvc printing
    Plus I already bought the nfc pvc cards for cheap, and I like the higher quality feel of plastic cards. Likely to last longer too.

    £50 for the printer £20 for the tray. I used to go to a printers to print my cards. What a money pit that was. So I grabbed £50 and bought a printer. I had on old HP printer that took forever to print black text. The one I have now prints the same in a second. It takes a minute or two to print the images in high detail with maximum ink usage. Any canon printer that supports a j tray (prints to cd) will work. Whatever works for you. PVC printing can be slow to get going and cleaning in between prints and making sure you flip them over correctly or you might print the cards upside down lol... I would have though you might just printed on A4 3 cards and folded them over cutting cropping just put a normal ntag chip inside them, then laminate the whole thing at the end. I suppose we all have our own way of making these cards, there is no wrong way of doing it. As long as you enjoy them.
