So here are some of those templates I was talking about in my last post. Some years I don't have many of, but here is most of what I have and some tips on each year's set.
This first file has various Topps logos, Draft Pick insignias, and team logos that I have used so far in my customs. I know the Red Sox logo is pink. Without the pink, it will show the background behind it, so if you use it, leave it like it is, and fill it in with white once you place it where you want it.
The 1990 templates are fairly simple. Just place them over whatever photo you choose and when you type in the name, I believe it is the Arial Black font and it is italicized.
I hope these templates give any custom card makes that read this some new sets to try working in. If you need a list of players who need cards in a certain years' set, I have one here. Currently, I am working on the complete checklist for the 2001 Topps set, and then I will probably work on the 2000 set, followed by 1989-1999. I always appreciate help with making cards in any Topps set, and if you like, I would be happy to post some of your creations here on my blog, just email me at karensjer at gmail dot com. Please let me know if you have any questions on making customs or have any particular Topps sets you are just dying for templates of. Thanks for checking out my latest post.
