What is an ACEO? It stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals. They are highly collectible miniature pieces of art. These cards have only one rule - they must be 2.5" x 3.5"- the size of a Trading Card. The craze started 2 years ago by an artist on E-Bay who wanted art to be available at affordable prices. Now anyone can own original art.
Art cards can be displayed in many ways, and they make charming gifts, alone, framed, or tucked into a greeting card. They fit into Trading Card albums and magnetic card holders.
Some are prints, some are originals- make sure you know what you are buying.
Here are my new Aceos. I've just joined in- and what fun! Mine are all original paintings in watercolor or acrylic. They can be purchased at 1000Markets.
