    Question Getting glossy cards signed

    Hello TTM community! I'm new to this hobby and I was wondering if there was any particular pen or any way I need to prepare the glossy card's I'm sending out.

    Thanks!

    Baby powder or a white stick eraser are going to be the answers here for the most part. I am partial to the eraser, it is quicker and makes less of a mess than baby powder. Takes 5-10 seconds to "scrub" the card and wipe off, works fantastic for me!

    What exactly will this do to the cards?

    As long as you stay on the card with the eraser it just removes the gloss. It can damage edges/corners if you aren't too careful with where you are rubbing it, but with decent pressure on the surface the gloss comes off, nothing else. It's what I do with all my glossy cards and they all turn out great!

    Okay, thank you very much!

    Why would happen if I didn't do that. (I sent a few glossy ones in the mail a few days ago)

    The autograph may smear or kind so fade away on a glossy non prepped card.

    Do you eraser over the entire card, or just on the specific spot that they sign? Can they tell where you have erased, or is it easy to miss?

    I get a vast majority of the card, mainly the middle area where they mostly sign. It isn't very obvious with a white eraser where you erased at all, but it leaves an area where the auto sticks much better to the card.

    I have sent out about 200 ttms and I have sent 100's of glossy cards to be signed. I have noticed that the cards that I used baby powder for have turned out better than those I used an eraser for. Also the cards do not look any different after baby powder, but the erasers I have noticed can make the cards look dull.
