    APC's - Altered Playing Cards

    APC's - Altered Playing/Poker Cards

    IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ

    APC's are becoming very popular on the site, but it seems that some people are a little confused over what size an APC should be.

    APC's should be the same size as an ATC (2.5 x 3.5) inches. For the correct size playing card you need to use poker cards. A lot of people are using bridge cards and this is an incorrect size, being 1/4 inch short on the width.

    Any swap that a host starts for APC's should be of poker card size (2.5 x 3.5 inches)
    , unless otherwise stated in the thread. Remembering this will avoid your cards being returned unswapped. Hosts: please state clearly the size in your first post.

    If trading 1 on 1 with a member you should be using poker cards (2.5 x 3.5 inches).
    If your APC's are of a different size, you must state the size in your gallery description and/or thread description. Also when you agree to trade with someone you should clearly state in your PM that your APC's are of a non standard ATC size. Remembering this will avoid traders being disappointed.

    If using any of the other sized playing cards available you must also be clear in your description as to what size they are.

    Use your zombie cards. I have a zombie apc in my collection but can't remember who from. Just make sure the measurements (2 1/2x 3 1/2) are right. If you're trading or doing a swap though, I'd make sure they want the different kind of cards first. Make some and put them in your gallery. You'll get some bites.

    What about using Casino poker cards that have had one or two corners trimmed. They sell used cards that way so the casino knows they've been played.

    I'm not sure if this is suitable in an information thread - please let me know if not! I just wanted to advertise to all APC makers that there are still free spots in the December PAT. In group 8 there are two of us with APC themes, though the group is not APC specific this time.
