I miss making fake cards, and I miss being known for having the most high quality fake card blanks ever made. Now, everything is so out of date that other people have started making blanks instead... but, I think I can do a better job of it. So maybe I should start making them again?


Fortunately making them is a lot easier than it was 16 years ago; it helps that I have a decent resource for scans, and my Photoshop skills are exponentially better than they were in 1999. So... lemme think about it.

    Please do :) I just started making fake cards again as well and stumbled across your page for the first time in about 10 years. I was so excited to see your recent post!

      Surprise! :D

      Yeah, PA! isn't dead... it's just... resting! :P

      Concerning getting back into making fakes again... I'd like to, it's just finding the time to do it. I'll figure something out. :)

    Yes, yes you should do this.

    Yes, please! It would be great to see you back in the world of faking.

    Would you be up to making HQ Japanese Neo blanks? I tried making some myself (which are good enough to get the Japanese Neo vibe), but they're still pretty inaccurate...

    Example card:

      Man, there have been so many great fakers out there in my absence... I wonder if I could compete against them! :(

      As for other blanks, I'm not sure. Usually if I don't have cards to scan, it's hard for me to make blanks out of them. I have thought about "emulating" the blank design by making the elements of the card myself by hand, but as close as accurate as they could be, they're not TECHNICALLY as accurate as possible, so I tend not to do it.

      That said, I've noticed that most people aren't nearly as accuracy orientated as I am, so they don't notice the flaws in the design as much as I do. That is to say, it's not to knock the blanker's ability to make a blank, as much as a fake card maker who uses the blank and don't care about it being 100% accurate, so long as they can make a good fake out of it. :)

      Those blanks of yours look really great, BTW! They're very clean and high quality. Good job! :D

    Have you made all of the blanks yet? :)

    • nick15 says:

      Hey, I remember you! lol

      No, I haven't gotten around to it yet. Also considering that the layout is going to get updated for Sun-Moon, I may focus my time on getting THOSE blanks made before any others... then maybe after that I'll work backwards.

      That said, I was inspired by the recent "Evolutions" set, where they basically updated Base Set to be compatible with the power shift of recent sets, so I may make those blanks as well and update Jungle, Fossil, etc, in the same way.

      I've been meaning to get back into the Pokemon website circuit, so maybe that'll make it worth doing again. I'll keep people posted, ok? :D

    Didn't expect to see an update so recently, did you start making them again?

    • nick15 says:

      Not yet; a lot of new blanks and ideas have come up since I made this post, so I might do those instead. Either way, I'll keep everyone posted. :)
