ACEO - Art Cards Editions and Originals

Mahjong Tiles

Giclée - Fine Art Print
Size:  2.5 x 3.5 inches

What is an ACEO?

The letters in ACEO stand for Art Cards, Editions and Originals.

The Art Card Originals are handmade one at a time.  They can be created in any medium such as watercolor, oil paint, acrylics, pen and ink, multi-media, collage and the list goes on.

The Art Card Editions are prints.  They can be open ended editions and sometimes they are limited edition prints.  The printing method can vary as well.

The main requirement of the ACEO or ATC is the size.  They are always 2.5 x 3.5 inches.  They are the same size as trading cards, like baseball cards.  They are kind of a trading card for artists.  They are called Artist Trading Cards or ATC when traded amongst artists.  They are considered ACEOs when they are sold to artists and collectors.

Collecting ACEOs whether they are originals or prints is an excellent way to start an affordable art collection!  They are small and often times not very expensive.

I love to create ACEOs!

Julia's Cross a Memorial to My Mom

Julia's Cross
by Artist Rita Squier

A watercolor painting I created in memory of my Mom who recently passed away in November.  The watercolor is so beautiful and meaningful, I wanted to be able to share it with others.  I had fine art giclée prints made.  The paper is Somerset Velvet.  It has the look and feel of watercolor paper.  The prints have turned out so nice it looks like a real watercolor painting.

If you would like a copy of this beautiful spiritual print, you can find Julia's Cross as an 8x10 inch print in my Squier Etsy Shop.  Also available are 5x7 inch prints with or without a mat in my Squier Etsy Shop.

New Prints for 2017

My newest endeavor to start off 2017 are giclée prints.  These prints were made from watercolor paintings I created in memory of my Mom Julia and my Aunt Viola.  Two very wonderful ladies who will always be very dear to me.

The new prints are currently available in my Squier Etsy Shop.  Both styles are done in 5x7 and 8x10 inch.  I offer the 5x7 prints matted and ready for you to frame in a standard 8x10 frame.

They can be found in the Giclée - Fine Art Prints Section of my Squier Etsy Shop.
