A new idea to present my ACEO cards came to me after someone asked me at an exhibition what those little originals could be used for. I explained that they would be collector´s items and would be kept in an album. The visitor then asked me if it was possible for me to paint a card from one of his holiday photographs.
We agreed that the ACEO card would be my interpretation of his photo rather than a copy. It would have the size of an ordinary playing card 59x91mm (approx. 2.5×3.5in).
After he left I thought about the small cards and how I should present them to make them look more attractive. I decided on a presentation card which I would produce and print on my printer before ordering any quantities from a card maker.
This is what I have come up with and I would be most interested in your comments.
The ACEO it fixed to the presentation card by means of four small strips of BLU-TACK a re-usable adhesive. So the ACEO can be easily removed from the presentation card if you should wish to do so. The presentation card also fits in a standard envelope so you can easily post it to a friend.
Other collectors may also be interested in my ACEO cards which will be hand painted to order to look similar but not identical to the original miniature painting. As explained above they are the size of an ordinary playing card. More ideas about presenting ACEOs can be found here.
