Hey cool......wait a minute!

Well, it seems as though some people have discovered my blog and like the work that I have done.

How cut autograph cards should be done - Los Angeles Trading Card

Part of me thought it was really cool to see this. Part of me was a little hesitant. This article made me realize just how easy it is to take some of my work and slap it on a website.

I also noticed a sportscard forum (that I am not a member of) decided to post a couple of my customs. The feedback was positive and I believe the original poster wasn't looking to do any ill-will, but again...a little hesitant on a positive reaction from me.

I'm now contemplating putting watermarks on my work. Just to protect it.

By the way, thanks for all the kind comments everyone. I'm looking forward to a top notch hockey season!


  1. It's cool to have someone recognize your work, as long as they give you credit! At least this guy gave you links and stuff.

    But yeah, a little watermarking doesn't hurt. Maybe put your web address on there, so people can always link back to your blog.

  2. Definitely. I took the article as a huge positive. He did give proper credit and I appreciate that.

    Good idea with the watermark. I'm going to have to come up with something that doesn't deter from the card design.

    Thanks for the comments.

  3. As long as they link back to you, it is free publicity for your site, which is definitely a good thing. What annoys me is when a MAJOR CHICAGO NEWSPAPER takes one of my images and does not credit me (it's happened twice).

  4. with your stuff.... do the watermarking. Definitely.

  5. This is it man! Next stop Panini...then ITG...then Upper Deck! :-) Nice work!
