Everyone’s Can Be Different!

When creating these custom magazine covers as trading cards, it’s important to remember that each one should be unique to the person you’re giving it to! This means selecting a photo of only them and featuring it as the main photo! A few of their interests and quotes are great ways to personalize this magazine cover to make it all about them!

One of the best ways to give out your trading cards is to host your very own ‘trading party’ with your family or friends! Hand out your stacks of trading cards to each family member and let the fun begin. While each family member is laughing and showing off their cards, they can begin trading with one another and building their collection!
