    Well, I have no idea why the scan got so messed up, but you get the gist. I love the All-Star design! Once/If they get signed, I'll update.

    Okay, so for those of you that are Photoshop savvy, would any of you be able to make up some cards for me? I need a few guys that played for the Twins, but don't have a Twins card.
    @Therion, do you print yours on card stock or photo paper?

    I print them on photo paper and then glue them to card stock. It is a LOT more work but turns out much nicer, in my opinion. There isn't really a right or wrong way.

    My layers are this: Photo ---> glue ----> 140lb stock paper ----> glue -----> Photo

    This gives me a front and back. I adhere one photo and then put it in a wood press for about an hour to let the glue dry. Then I adhere the back and press it for another hour. Once it is set, I check for any flaws and trim as needed. I then put it back in the press for about a day to help prevent any loosening of the glue. I really, really want to get a die-cutter. It would cut down on my production time significantly, but I'm not sure the cost is worth it.

    Hi, my name is Jeremy. I have been dabbling in custom cards for the past 5 years or so. I mainly use MS Paint and GIMP for my cards. I am trying to make a card for every player/coach who were left out of the 1989-2001 Topps sets. I have a blog going where I post cards, templates, and am working on checklists for those sets. So far, I have checklists of players needed for the 1989, 1990, 1991, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, and 2001 Topps sets. I have made every card (front and back) for the 1992 Topps set, and am a few hundred cards away from finishing the '94 set. I have made seperate pages for each set on my blog which have the checklist of cards needed, as well as templates for every team, coach/manager templates, and highlight templates. I think this can be a help to custom card makers, especially ones who are making card that never were or cards that are missing from Topps sets. Here is the link to my blog http://toppscardsthatneverwere.blogspot.com, and here is the link to the 1992 Topps set that I finished http://completingthe1992toppsset.blogspot.com. Lastly, I am a member of the Facebook Custom Card group, and there are a bunch of cool customs there, and many members are happy to post templates if you ask. Here is the link to the group page https://www.facebook.com/groups/612854715531519/. Hope you find my blog a worthwhile spot and can use some of the templates I made as well as the FB group.

    I would love to see someone do a Topps Deckle Edge and include the cutter file to cut the cards.

    Topps made some Deckle Edge cards for their archives release in 2012.

    I can make a deckle edge card easy. When you say 'cutter file' what exactly do you mean?

    You input the file into your electronic cutter and it cuts the cards for you
