How to Create your own Trading Cards

There are a few things you might consider getting if you wish to create your own trading cards.

  • Card Stock

We recommend using Card Stock to print the cards, not paper. This will give you the best product that is also durable. Using card stock that is around 300 GSM should usually do the trick.

Side note: If you don’t know what GSM means, card stock weight is measured in GSM (grams per square meter). This is the universal measure for playing card paper weight. The higher the number (300gsm, 330gsm, 350gsm), the thicker and heavier the stock and card will be. Generally speaking, the heavier the card stock, the better chance your cards will have a higher-quality feel.

  • Card Rounder

 We recommend using a corner rounder to make the cards look professional and give that pokemon card feel like it’s only a few dollars, and you can get one from amazon here

  • Card Sleeves

If you are going to play memory games with kids, sleeve your cards unless you want to print a new set each week!!! Trust me you will thank me later.
