Very, very nice. The blue accent in the background works perfectly.
What is your method for cutting out your card? It looks really nice.

After printing the card, I cut out a window for the patch with my slide trimmer.
Then I cut out a window in the watercolor paper backing that forms the middle layer.
Next step is to align the top and middle layers and glue them together.
After gluing the bottom layer on the card (a thick, glossy card stock), I cut the card out using first the trimmer and then the xacto blade to get the edges sharp.
Final step is to glue the logo in place. I then press the card with a heavy book to get it to dry flat and securely.

What area does the player sign on the card? Are you having them sign the patch or somewhere on the outside of the window?

I actually didn't make these with the intent to get them signed. The MLB cards I'll be doing next will incorporate an area for an autograph.

Where did you get the patches from? I have considered a design like this and have a basic concep in my head. They look amazing by the way!Total MiLB Games This Year:3 Total IP Autos:75

Corruption of our minds. All the blood and the shame, defamation of name.
