    A few exciting additions. First, I shaved.

    Second, I got my first youtube testimonial!



    "Tanner my video is up of my custom cut cards. WOW just WOW these are beautiful. I will be ordering more this week. Thank you for all of your hard work. I may have a few other projects to talk to you about but i will email you. Me and my wife had a blast putting these together."

    Third, I made a modification based upon bethanyb1201's suggestion via pm yesterday. I'm not sure if this is exactly what was meant, but the suggestion came at a perfect time as I was looking to re-work the template that comes in my custom cuts kit anyway.

    Here is a graphical representation of it:



    Watch me put together a Frank Thomas cut auto in about 10 minutes using a damaged auto, a picture I took with my phone and one of my Custom Cuts kits!



    Just a few pics to show of the progression:

    The damaged autograph (I have looked FOREVER to figure out who sent this to me. If this is you, please speak up - I'd love to give you a shout out!)



    A picture of me and Frank a few years ago:


    I decided to get a little fancy with this, and photoshop myself out of it. (I would have never in a million years thought I would have EVER photoshopped myself OUT of a pic with the Big Hurt!)



    The final product!


    Annndddd... everything together:


    Oh, and thanks [MENTION=5961]MisterT[/MENTION] !

    I like how you fudged this digital card to have the cut sig fit the window better than the actual card produced. The one you made in the video, the top of the F touches or goes underneath the opening, and you fixed the second F being close to the picture oval.



    I can see the pre-cut windows being a hindrance to many autographs. Do you provide an emailable 100% scale template that people could print out and use to see if their auto material will fit?

    I wasn't trying to fudge anything; I just forgot to scan the Thomas autograph before I made the card, (d'oh!) so I had to find one on google. The one on google had the autograph VERY close to the picture (more so than the one on mine) so I photoshopped it a bit. The autograph you see in the pic you quoted is actually not the autograph I used at all.

    To go even further, I photoshopped the scribbling to make it looks similar to the card I cut up, AND of course, in the picture, I erased out some areas to make the autographed card look trashed - just to give ideas to the folks who don't actually watch the video. Last but not least, you may or may not have noticed, but the "heavenly glow" around Big Frank is less noticeable in my graphics when compared to the one on the video. I showed my wife the card, and she said it was too overpowering, so I toned it down - I think that brought him back down to HOF status from heavenly angel status.

    An emailed template is a good idea for those who may want it, however I do have the dimensions posted on the front page of my site, so I think the ruler would probably be their best bet.

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    Is it just me or does this creation looks much better than the Topps Transcendent cards? You can buy a lot of these kits for the Topps price tag.

    Thanks for posting this! I'm pretty pumped about it.

    Thanks! I ran the numbers, and at its peak of $27,000, it looks like one could have purchased 901 Custom Cuts kits.

    Just a few other things ....

    After I was tweeted out, this is what happened with the traffic:



    Cool stuff!

    Also, as a thank you to Darren for tweeting out my link, I created a digital edition card for him commemorating his 89 Fleer Rick Face story. (Black box version used for obvious reasons!)



    Oh, and finally, to commemorate Rogue One Day, a family pic w/ticket relic:

    The design is really well done in my opinion, nice clean look and just the right amount of gold foil. Thumbs up. I have some ideas brewing in my head, once I figure out exactly what I want to do I'll be sure to order some.



    If you don't mind I'll throw in a few bits of my $.02 (even though my two cents is only worth about $.002 ::sigh:: )...

    1. Please link your website in your sig if you don't mind...I did bookmark it but it will help remind me to hop on and buy some when the time comes around.

    2. Maybe put a link on the top right of your website (between 'Instructional Video' and 'Contact Us' perhaps?) that jumps down to the section where you can type in your card code.

    3. Have slight discounts for bulk orders....$27.95 per if you buy 5 or more, $24.95 per if you buy 10 or more, $21.95 per if you buy 20 or more. (For example, just throwing some numbers out there) That would give a little more incentive for people to buy more of them at a time.




    That's all I have for now...I hope this works out for ya Tanner. Can't wait to see some of the cards people come up with

    -Thanks to JBel4331 for the sig

    Great ideas! About to hop downstairs for some after work family time, but I'm going to take a look into this stuff more later. Thanks again!

    Yes I have it but thanks so much for thinking of me! It is such a weird set. I've seen the 1/1 and the red foil, but not any others of it. I wonder if any others exist!

    You don't love your cat nearly as much as you should unless you have a trading card of him/her.

    Check out this pair of customs that a happy customer made!



    The one on the left has a cut piece of a prescription for the cat, and the other has a cut piece of the curtain they damaged.
