Sideline Memories is my personal logo and future business. im having requests from former NFLers to make them one of these. It started with Ferrario since he never had a card published, now Jeff Nixon wants me to make him one. This is quite exciting! This is my nicest design to date. Maybe i should make a back to these or just leave them as photos. Either way, getting them signed will look great.

thank you. i sent mr. atwater his on sotl(school of the legends) he loved it. he sent me a private message about the photo. i may not have talent like some on here but i surely know how to use powerpoint lol. thanks to all the great designers on here who keep me inspired. (Jake, rockiesfan, bigga .lilmezzy, .to name a few) i'm thinking i should lighten the words on the bottom.

those look great! This may be a dumb question but how do you save powerpoints in 220 dpi and how do you get them printed as photos? Can you print them on a photo site? Thanks...I like making customs but right now I'm stuck using paint since I don't have photoshop so I'd love any pointers you can give me!!

That is exactly what i was about to say...fade the text so they can have a better spot to sign!

I would just do the faded antonio pierce font like it was with the others without a sig spot and I think that would look nice.

size17shoes
05-06-2012, 08:58 AM
the other customs are 8 x 10 size, the antonio pierce is 2.5 x 3.5. card size. i was just trying something different with this one. added the border, removed the excess wording to create a signature area. i wanted to put the jersey number in the middle but i haven't found a decent font to use for the numbers

Definitely like the border! but i think you should move the number down or make it a little smaller and fade it a little

i use powerpoint. i tried to move the number down but it didnt change the spacing. i kind of like the 3d look of the numbers. bill said he liked that there was room enough to sign his autograph.


here is another version:

Those are awesome though. Is it pretty much just how it would be on photoshop with the layers?

i'm making a set of players whom never had a trading card released during their playing days..

05-08-2012, 02:28 PM
Oh, alright. But when you make them do you do different layers? Never seen anyone use PowerPoint for this

size17shoes
05-08-2012, 03:48 PM
not really sure what you are asking. this is powerpoint i use and it is a slide. it doesn't really have layers. i normally use the comparison or two content slide for my designs. i normally start with the background slide, selecting one that isnt too crazy. i find the color i like and add an effect to the background slide. The background has a light space in the center so i increase the space by adding cloud shapes then kind of blend them into the background. then i find my cut , play with the satuation, coloring, etc. then place it above the background clouds. i place another cloud shape above the cut blend it in like the other clouds and raise it above the cut image of the player so that the player is behind the cloud. next i select a font for my text and raise the text above the background and lower cloud.

Ohh alright. I was just wondering if it was just like photoshop where you made separate layers

like braveskid, I'm really confused about the powerpoint part. I can't understand for the life of me why somebody would use that... although you seem to be making it work.

i am not comfortable with photoshop or gimp. i use inkscape to make logos but that's the extent with that program. i've have used powerpoint for many years now with my years in college and the last year or so making customs. I am just used to using powerpoint. I downloaded Photoshop and was completely lost.

wrestling is more catch phrase than quotes lol...i like to use positive messages and also some funny quotes like chuck bednarik's famous line about the 1960 championship when he layed out frank gifford, " this f..ing game is over!" now that's classic but not for children

I've been working on getting my own trading card company established. I'm applying to get a license with NFL retired players union to use retired player images that are members of the union. Thinking about buying the trademark to Wild Card but might go another direction. All I know is this what i want to do and I'm going for it.

You will have to do your own cuts and use photoshop... ;-)

size17shoes
06-07-2012, 09:16 PM
not using cuts persay...wont be a traditional trading card size..more goal line art size.. i have graphic arts friends that asked to be a part of this. the subjects send me their own photos they want me to use. i give them input on the work and im giving them the final say on the card. i want the subjects to feel like they have a part in the design process.
