    'llo :)
    i'm trying to set a ready-to-print PDF with some of your cards, using your guide and your template.
    I could install Scribus, open your template, but when i drag'n drop your card image onto the frame, the picture is aligned in a corner, and not centered as your exemple in the guide. Sometimes it's rotated as expected, sometime not (still in the expected frame). trying mutliple times, now they rotate like they should. I think it was a misuse of Scribus.
    What am i doing wrong ?
    Thank you !

    EDIT : reading the chapters of you rguide, it seems normal that the picture is aligned in the top left corner, but it must not have the good size, or parameters.
    And i don't know why the rotated frames don't rotate the picture.
    Should i just download the picture from the main thread ?

    EDIT2 : this is how it looks like :

    EDIT 3 : shame on me, i wanted to print credit card size in the playing card template.
    Sorry ^^
    Now looking to set a PDF of credit card images...

    Sounds like you figured out that you were using the wrong template. I did make a credit card size template. If you need help with that let me know

    Not to be that person, but what's the point of this when the N2 Elite holds 200 or so files? No hassle of carrying cards, simple to use. Not that this isn't a pretty cool thing gs you maxe.

    I've been tempted to buy it but I feel my cards are more fun to have instead of that boring thing. I guess that would be for people who have no time because of work and kids, I made my cards with patience and time. Also I can give a visual image of what amiibo I'm using, from what I understand you have to press a button to scroll through RANDOM amiibos or whatever order they are set in there with the N2

    Here are some cards I made. I used various templates for some and made others from scratch. All my cards are credit card size. I have either made or modified most of the released cards to fit my PVC cards (size is 3.4 x 2.12 inches). If there are any you are looking for in this size let me know.

    Fire Emblem:
    fe card alm.png fe card celica.png fe card chrom.png fe card tiki.png

    Mario Bros:
    sm card goomba.jpg sm card koopa troopa.jpg

    Mario Odyssey (My take on the back of the cards):
    mario odyssey card back alt.png

    Breath of the Wild Champions (Main difference is the shadows that are missing from other designs):

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Cloud Player 2. I patched together the best card I could for the Player 2 variant of Cloud so he is high resolution for the most part. It is a bit different than the other cards (no number in the top right), this is however how all my set of Smash Bros cards are formatted. Bayonetta Player 2 is the only one I could not get great graphics for but it looked fine when printed for the cards.

    @k7ra here... idk where you got that picture but I recreated them for you. They are credit card size so im posting them here. I put in the English names, hope you don't mind. Also the source image didnt have enough art to leave a proper bleed.... so above and below the crop marks is just stretched out to make a fake bleed, not much I could do there.

    Not knowing where those images of the cards came from, and not knowing much about Fire Emblem, these are the steps I took to find the images:
    1. Use Googles "search by image" feature with the picture of all the cards to see where it came from. I only find a page selling the cards.
    2. Next thought: "Are these official cards?".
    3. Test theory: Googled "Fire Emblem Cards" - no luck just found a bunch of TCG cards.
    4. I noticed they were all characters that have amiibo figures, and the amiibo logo on the card back. After ruling out official cards, these must be custom made. Most custom made cards use pre-existing art assets to create their cards and just composite them together.
    5. Googled "Fire Emblem Amiibo Cards" - no luck in finding those exact cards.
    6. Extracted one of the cards from the image and tried to straighten it out in photoshop then used that in a "search by image". - still no luck.
    7. Googled "Fire Emblem Background art" - found this:
    8. The art style of the background in the bottom right (the castle background) looks similar to the one used in the background of the cards. I noticed the description in google of the image said: "Fire Emblem: Heroes - Conversation Backgrounds"
    9. Googled "Fire Emblem Background castle window - SUCCESS:
    10. Next, I needed to find the nameplate... Googled "Fire Emblem nameplate" - found this:
    11. The nameplate has the same design but slightly different colours. However, I notice this is from Fire Emblem Heroes again.
    12. Theory: Since Fire Emblem Heroes is a mobile game, the person that made this must have just downloaded an asset pack ripped from the game.
    13. Googled "Fire Emblem Heroes Assets" - found this reddit post linking to a Mega.nz page that contains all of the assets ripped from the game.
    SUCCESS! In there I find a higher quality version of the background. All the character art except Roy (a simple search for "Fire Emblem Roy" got me that art). And I also find the correct name plate in there as well.

    The font for the names was easier, I already knew it was the Hylian font (capital letters) from when I was making my Zelda cards, but a simple what the font search would have probably found it for me.

    For the card back, I googled "Fire Emblem Chrom's Sword" and found that image pretty quick. It was more of a pain to get rid of the dark blue in the background of the image I found. The chibi characters I found by googling "Fire Emblem Chibi" and noticing they came from these key chains sold on amiami. So just looked for those key chains and found the images.

    It probably took me about 30 minutes to get the images for the fronts of the cards, those were relatively easy. I spent more time looking for the sword used in the card back image, I could only find it already composited onto the blue logo thing. I would have preferred to find it clean and make the composite myself but for the life of me I couldn't find a sword that was an exact match. I could find ones that were really close to the same, but not exactly the same. It was probably wasted effort, I realize, the card back image looks like garbage. But I wanted to recreate it as best I could anyway.



    As for cutting out the cards....

    Use this template:
    https://gbatemp.net/attachments/random11-6-scribus-credit-card-template-zip.84725/

    Follow this guide which explains how to use the template to create a PDF with all your images on it for printing:
    https://gbatemp.net/attachments/how-to-use-scribus-for-printing-cards-pdf.83321/

    Use this guide for cutting out and gluing the images together to make the cards: https://gbatemp.net/attachments/how-to-cut-out-amiibo-cards-pdf.83152/

    This is an amendment of that guide:
    As for the corner cutter. I used a "Sunstar Kadom Pro, Corner Cutter (S4765036)" which has a 3mm (radius) blade.
