Artist Sample Print Cards were invented as a
promotional tool for the self-publishing artist or any artist really who finds
themselves facing the daunting task of promoting their art and prints. Artist
Sample Print Cards are a convenient size as they fit into a standard #10
envelope making them easy to mail by regular mail and at reasonable rates. The
size is easy to print on the artist's production printer and, when done well,
represents the full size Giclee Print faithfully. Artists can leave these
attractive cards with friendly business for customers to see and take. Artist

Artist Sample Print Cards have some similarity to Artist
Trading Cards. There are however some important differences.
- Size: An Artist Sample Print Card has an image that measures 3.75" on
the smaller side. The larger side is determined by the proportion of the
original image and varies to accommodate and maintain the image's
proportions. It is larger overall to include artist and print information on
the front. Artist Trading Cards are a smaller standardized size identical to
sports trading cards, the image may be altered to fit this standard size,
and artist information is generally on the back of the card.
- Purpose: Artist Sample Print Cards are more promotional in nature
allowing artists to extend their audience to people who may not see their
shows, gallery, or website. Artist Trading Cards are often used by artists
to share their work with each other and are traded between just two artists
or distributed in circuits for a group of artists to view. Many artists feel
Artist Trading Cards should never be sold and should only be exchanged or
traded. It should be noted that there is some element of promotionality in
the Artist Trading Cards as well as the Artist Sample Print Cards. There is
also a growing market for both of these cards.
- Collectability: Artist Trading Cards maybe printed, hand drawn or hand
crafted. They can be collected based on their content or the artist who
created the card. Artist Sample Print Cards are miniature works of art and
can be as collectible as Artist Trading Cards with the understanding that
great care and effort went into making the printed cards. As a collectible
Artist Sample Print Cards have the potential to give the public access to an
artist's body of work.
- Artist Information: Artist Sample Print Cards include artist and print
information on the front of the card. Artist Trading Cards generally have
this information on the back of the card since there is no room for it on
the front. Artist and print information on the front of the Artist Sample
Print Card gives the viewer instant access to this information and hopefully
can generate interest in the artist by associating the image with the
