    Tried my hand at making a custom...

    This is probably the only one I will make, unless I make some for a team or something...

    It's the best I could manage in Paint.



    I didn't have an xacto handy, so I couldn't get the window right...

    It looks like the front is over-lapping, but it is just the scan.

    Yeah I know you were joking

    Paint is a REALLY hard program to work with... IDK what programs guys like 200lb use, but their customs are AMAZING.

    You gotta start somewhere.

    My first few were horrible. But you will get better with practice. Let me know if you need any advice/help.

    These are 2 of my favorites

    Looking to have some custom cuts or plain custom cards built? PM me.

    Re: Tried my hand at making a custom...

    Yeah those are nice! I figure I will end up making some during the summer, because last year, the NWL team here only released about 200 team sets as a promo, and MANY less than that were signed. I might make my own team sets and have them signed and I wanna get the design down now. I might do them as cuts, or as on cards (IF I decide too, it is REALLY awkward asking these guys to sign stuff for me... I shoulda done it last year though )

    Not many questions now, just what program do you use?

    Adobe Photoshop CS4, but thats probably a $700 program. Though I probably only use 3% of what its capable of doing.
    I usually recommend Photoshop Elements. Though someone else may be able to recommended something even cheaper and just as effective.

    Yeah, I will go ahead and look at those. I am really itching to play around with those today. I actually made one with the same design for a local politician (some of his ads have Facsimiles on them, and I have a couple. Good for practicing with.) but didn't have any ads handy to finish the customs.

    use GIMP

    "I don't lose sleep at night because my salary is X amount of dollars when I think it should be Y amount of dollars.
    I lose sleep at night because I've been in the league five years and we still haven't won a championship.
    I wake up in the middle night frustrated because we lost out in the first round and
    I want to see our players hoist the Stanley Cup.
    That's why I lose sleep. I don't worry about 13 months from now not having a paycheck."
