    Hello everyone! I recently started doing a collection of amiibos, and I wanted to have them in card form too, so I started making custom designs for those.
    Since I'm a beginner at image editing, I'd really like if you could give me your honest opinion on those, along with a few tips on how to make them look better if possible.

    My goal is to make a design for every single amiibo existing, with every different serie of amiibo having their own design.

    You can use them without having to credit me.
    I'm only asking you to send a picture of the cards you printed with my work, in case any of you like it. :D

    Here's the imgur album for the Smash serie of amiibos: http://imgur.com/a/Pula7

    I will add more to this album whenever I got some free time.
    If you guys want to see a specific amiibo, just let me know, and I'll make it as soon as I can!

    Again, thanks for reading this, and I hope you have a good day!

    Thanks you! I really appreciate it! :D
    May I ask you where you ordered them? I was thinking about buying mines from Tagstand, since they sell PVC cards with the chip inside.

    These are pretty good, but there are white edges around all of the characters and on some of them it looks bad against the black background, you should get rid of that.
    Also I think the font and the text coloring could be better.

    Ah, I got you, I just checked the prices, and it's cheaper than Tagstand! I will definitely order them from Aliexpress. :)

    The real Jdbye: I will try making a new design today so if you have some tips, let me know!

    @TheCyberQuake Yup, those are credit card sized! I'd say wait a few minutes before printing them, I'm working on a new design and it's looking even better! :D

    EDIT: Uploaded the new design in the same album! :D

    I would recommend adding a few mm of bleed to each edge. It makes it easier to get onto a card

    Why did this thread die so quickly? I was looking forward to new designs (and was hoping for the back card design to be readded to the imgur album)
