    Here are my designs for business card style Amiibo cards.
    Here is all of the cards as of 11/9/2017.

    The BOTW set has some alternate cards with a lighter background. I found from my initial printing it was far too dark and looked much better lighter. There are also some wider cards which are meant to be used for having a bleed area when printing. There is another LOZ set which has the regular LOZ logo more consistent with the packaging.

    Every set has a bleed border which you can place a card on top in a template to get a better print without white edges. The NFC Back card has a 25mm white space which fits the 25mm NFC tags great.

    Why not use the actual artwork instead of the amiibo models?

    Very cool but I would make the model image way larger to make it more striking.

    What parts do you need? I can get them tonight when I get home.

    Artwork is nice but most of what I found does not fit the ultra narrow profile of a buisness card. I am still looking at some things others have made but not decided yet. Plus I like the look of the Amiibos themselves which is why I used them instead.

    I probably could make them bigger. I will take a look at all of the Amiibos to see what I can do. I am trying to stay consistent on the base size but know it will be unavoidable with some like the Guardian. I went the easy route on these because the stock photos are all constant in width.

    Here are the card backgrounds.

    The SSB one was found on the Amiibo reddit. The swirl one was from the Nintendo Website that no longer exists and the Triforce one was made from scratch.

    I initially got my Amiibo images from http://www.nintendo.com/amiibo/line-up but found out that http://videogames-fanon.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Amiibo has higher resolution photos of the shot. I am not sure where they got them from the Nintendo website. They also have all of the logos.

    I came across ultra high resolution photos of the Amiibos on the Japanese website and have redone all of my cards. I had to go JPG in order to make it somewhat reasonable to upload. The Amiibos are also larger in the card now too. In fact I did not resize the Amiibo picture at all. I included the newly announced cards too.

    Since I am remaking all of my cards I already made I am doing a new back which will have a place for the NFC sticker. I am not going to double up the cards in my thermal pouches as even with 20 cards the stack gets huge. I can half the stack with just one card per pouch.

    After messing with different templates then moving to my own template I decided it is impossible to get my printer to print perfectly into the card. I redid all of my borders since I never saved the settings before and created new bleed templates. I previously used the Avery 8871 Clean Edge cards but was not satisfied with the prints. I am now using Avery 8859 Glossy Clean Edge cards and the prints are so much better. This time around since I am not going to double up the cards I made a place for the sticker on the back. The stickers from AliExpress say they are 25mm but will not know for sure until I get them. I also have redone the back to be more similar to the real Amiibo cards. Anyways here is a comparison of my old cards and new.
    As you can see I will not have a white edge problem anymore and also even though the back is not glossy it still prints to much better than the old 8871 cards.

    The back of the card has changed since those photos. I have since finalized my design and printed all of the cards. Here is a screenshot of the folder.
    There are two backs. The NFC back has a 25mm circle which fits the 25mm NFC tags perfectly. The bleed file is for adding more border when printing. You overlay the card in the center of it. I found that when I tried to print to my sheets I ended up having to do this to prevent white borders. It also made me waste 4 cards per sheet.

    You can download the images here.

    They are 600dpi so when printed at that it will be 2"x3.5". I did not use sleeves. They are laminated using these.

    How do you print these? I'm going to be using photo paper glued to game cards that I found on Amazon
