    Congratulations to all those who have decided to build a fake card from your ideas. Here's how to do it.


    Firstly, to do a fake, you need... blanks. You can find loads, including DP, all the ex serries, fan made and more, linked here.

    Second off, there is a great refrence for make fake cards, linked here, made by some of the leading card fakers. Although these tutorials are fairly comprehensive, lower down are some other specifications and font alternatives.

    And here are most symbols, rarities, stampings, Pokemon rules, ect; compiled to make life easier. (Note: This is not posted yet).

    And need a program to edit? Programs like GIMP, Corel Draw, Photoshop, or any good program that uses "layers" work great.



    Now, here are some alternate more common fonts to use, since most proper ones require expensive downloads :)nonono:).
