tips for making proxies?
« on: February 28, 2013, 08:59:54 PM »
I've made a few sheets of proxy cards by first scanning a page-sized 3x3 grid of cards, then printing however many copies of this sheet that I want. However the scanning process is cumbersome.

I notice that cardgamebd has images of all of the cards, although they are fairly low resolution. Questions:

(1) Anyone know of any higher resolution scans of the cards available online?

(2) If I decided to use the images from cardgamedb, what's the easiest way to ensure that the card images on the printout are exactly the same size as the normal cards?

When we use proxies, we actually use proxy cards and not counterfeit/copy cards.  As an example, when I just had the one core box to play and I wanted more Hand of Bims I took 3 firebrand imps and made sure my opponent knew that when my priestess deck played an imp, it was really a Hand.  I can see where your method would look better, but it seems a lot of work and murky in terms of copyright stuff.
