View Full Version : First time faker, I need advice

I'm not new to the pokemon TCG by any means, but it's been a year since I've even looked at my extensive collection.

I took up my old hobby, and bought a dragon, hidden legends booster packs, and a team aqua theme deck. (Kyogre's poke-body really suuuucks)

And once again, with my intrest in the game, I've goten my intrest in fakes back, and this time I'm not going to shy away from it.

Where can I find blank templates for dual type cards, and/or semi-blanks, as in ones that already include the pokemon's picture?

I know this has been asked elsewhere, but I can't find it. What fonts should be used, and what type of paper should be used to make them seem authentic?

I have no intention to make any sort of profit from these, but rather to make a convincing joke against my friends when I play team magma's celebii. :cheeky:

I would suggest to go to fakecard.com (scroll down and click on the link) and pokemonzeo.com. They have tutorials on how to get started and have everything you need.

Thanks!

EDIT: Wow, I actually figured out how to make a short post without "bypassing" the 25 character rule! Quote this post to see how.

It is alright if they look that way. They always do whenever you first start out. The thing is to keep on making them and you will get better really fast. You might want to post some of them here so get comments on what you did wrong and how you can improve.

The problem is, I want the images that are used on the cards. For example, there's already a blaziken card. I want a blank fire/fighting template, and the image used on the official blaziken card on it. Those are the ones I need to find, as while my editing is okay, my drawing skill is in the negative numbers :disappoin

Does anyone know where to get those images?

Why don't you just find the card blank you need, find an enlarged version of the card whos picture you are going to use and use the scrolling marquee in paint or adobe to cut and paste the picture and then just paste it onto the card blank and there ya go!

Because I can't find any images of the card without the site's logo or innitials on the pokemon image.

I need to FIND the images, that's what I'm saying. Whether alone, or taken from another card, I just need to find them

Um, why don't you just try Google. That works for me all of the time.

Hmm, and search for a pokemon's name? a "pokemon cards"? Ahh well, I'll start on it.

Ok, looking for a card that isn't rotated or has the image tampered with.

Thanks again!

I think I found an okay blaziken one, but it's not very high quality. I just want a normal blaziken card image, not holofoil, to use on a fire/fighting blank, which I think is on this site.
