Producer Name Cards
« on: March 19, 2015, 12:59:55 am »
Producer Name Cards are fan made business cards which includes info such as contact information, online handles, which idols they produce, etc. and are swapped at events and offline meet ups. While these are mostly done by Japanese idolmaster fans there's some English fans that also make them. Even if you can't print some out it'd still be interesting to give it a try making one.
Here's a pretty good English article about it. I'll add more info or examples to this thread as needed. Let me know if you have any questions about it.

It looks nice, where did you get it from? What program did you use to make it?

Thanks! I got 100 of them printed from VistaPrint 100 is about $8-$9 one-side, but then there's a $10 shipping fee
I used Photoshop to make it, I've been working with photoshop for many years on stuff, so I'm pretty used to all the shortcuts so I was able to put it together pretty quickly.

Useful tools:

Lots of art with transparent backgrounds:

Attached: Other useful logos.

Happy P card creating!

Maybe I should get Twitter so I don't feel stupid for having nothing on these cards but my name.

There's many Ps and fan art on twitter if you do join. You could also link to a different contact as well.

Where can I find more images with transparent backgrounds (such as from the games, anim@s, Xenoglossia)? That Tumbir site only has images from the mobile games.

Depending on the image it's not too difficult to do yourself. I swear I used to have a guide to it, let me see if I can find it. Couldn't find it.

Ah by the way I have transparent images for imas 1 and 2 Chihaya if you need that.

I have a huge folder of boxm@s transparent images if you need them.
For the anime though you may have to photoshop them yourselves. I recommend using Photoshop's polygonal selection tool to carefully go around the edges of the image, and then carefully erase the rest you don't want.

IMO, you don't have to go super clean because it won't be terribly noticeable if you have a small mistake on a business card. Just do whatever you think looks best! Happy editing!

Googling "____ render" is a good way to do it too.

Character name and 立ち絵 can get you some of those Novem@s character pics too. Nothing too exciting, though - they're just standing around and making faces.

This guy's got a lot of 'em.
