very nice.
Can I ask how you're applying the art? Are you just printing it on?

I also am curious on how these are created. My guess would be a very thin paper with a thin layer of spray on glue. Or for the foils a very thin transparencies with a layer of spray on glue.

If they are printed, I would be very curious to find out how... as most printers are very touchy about printing on thick/changing surfaces without looking like crap...

these are absolutely AWESOME!!!! Do you have some extra?

The only thing is that the text isn't correct. (Ancestral recall has a flashback and time twister became a 2/2 creature.) The mana drain, force of will, time walk, demonic and imperial seal are hot.

After years of experimenting with everything from photopaper to labels to plain old paper with glue sticks, I finally found the holy grail on my quest for proxy enlightenment- 1/2 page Shipping labels from Office Depot. They are the thinnest form of label I have ever found and allow for the cards to be riffle-shuffled in sleeves without the feel of having something adhered to the cards(i.e.- they hardly add any thickness to the card.)

I use an HP Deskjet 1220 printer and the most difficult part of doing this was sizing the pictures up to fit exactly in the art box. Amazingly, I have found at least 4 different dimensions for the art box on MTG cards(The two obv. ones- original and 8th ed. plus some weird 4th korean dimensions). The older cards had some variation on the original size and I have to adjust accordingly.

So, in a nutshell...scan the cards, select the art, open in MS Paint, adjust accordingly , print and peel...voila!!!! Instant proxification!!!

I'm still looking for tons of cards in Asian or Russian so if you have them, let me know. I raided TOGIT's coffers for about 1300 cards on Saturday and this first batch is just the beginning. I know there are some errors (like the Ancestral with flashback and the 2/2 Timetwister...but you can just consider these 'misprints' which Squt will feature at a later date. :wink: :wink:

I'm trying to 'line-up' the text so it seems as though it were the actual text in an ideogrammatic language. Some look like seamless translations-i.e.- the Force of Will, Imperial Seal and Demonic Tutor, and some are almost dead-on accurate with their tapping and mana symbol features in the textbox- the Library of Alexandria still makes me smile.
