What are Aceos or Atcs??
ACEO, stands for “Art Cards Editions and Originals”. All cards are 2.5″ by 3.5″ (inches) They are highly affordable, collectable and tradeable! Also very easy to handle, show, and store. They fit into standard trading card albums, sleeves and storage containers and are also suitable for framing. Start or add to your collection today!
ATC, stands for “Artist Trading Card”. The only difference is that these are never sold. They are always traded. Should you decide that you no longer want your ATC you can trade with various swap groups or here with us.
These little treasures were just discovered, by me a year ago, even though they have been around for ages. Last year, I made 6 and traded half of them.
Recently, with my WWAO group, we traded with a group of 15. Most of these very talented women used paint, ink, mixed media, etc. I was one of the few that used fabric to create my aceos. I was thrilled when they encouraged me to do more. My goal is to complete 50 aceos to sell and 25 to trade (atc).
Now, I belong to a couple of groups that share the same passion for these collectibles. One group, in particular has just started and some of their aceos are in the slide show. To see all of our aceos or to join the group, please follow us:

Any medium works for the aceos. The only standard is the size 2 ½” x 3 ½”.
