Extended Borders Alters Art

These alters cards usually have no borders or frames. We guarantee to carefully paint them with the right values and hues. Values expand and give more depth and life to the original card illustration. The name, cost of mana, type, expansion symbol and text box are visible.

Full MTG Alter Art

Usually we either completely replace the original illustration within its box. For example, this could mean change your planeswalker for an anime character or replace a land landscape.

What are your alter cards durability?

Commissioned mtg alters have pretty good durability, more so than normal cards. Acrylic paints are made from a plastic polymer.

When it dries it’s flexible and water-resistant at the same time. When we finish each card, we also apply very thin layers of varnish to keep the paint sealed. This gives the card a more refined touch and safely store it in a “perfect fit” sleeve.

As long as the card has the original name, mana casting cost, type of card, expansion and text box clearly visible there shouldn’t be a problem. Therefore, extended and pop-up can be used.

When it comes to art replacement, fan art and full art, that comes to the judge’s consideration. They might allow them or not as they can be viewed as proxy cards: be sure you own an extra copy of the card or equal altered mtg cards just to not to have any issues.

We mostly obtain cards from the cardmarket.eu for the best price and quality, but also preferably from local stores if we can.

Prices can change a lot depending on the request you have in mind, and if we going to order the cards and their rarity. We try to optimize between card cost + work time + shipment cost.

There are indeed cards we don’t have. So we’ll make sure to get them from the local game store or card market. Which takes time and we’ll require a deposit in advance for that.

However, the deposit in advance is only for cards which the value is equal or greater than 16€.

For example, for 4 cards each costing 4-5 euros, we’ll ask for a deposit. That’s only to cover the cost of the cards (16€ in this example). The work time and shipment cost will be due when the work is finished.

First tell us what you’d like to get done. What card, what type, edition if you have a preference.

Let us know what your idea for the cards. It’s recommended a description,  alteration art style and photo references. Give us as many details as you can, if possible.

Note: Once the deposit is sent, we’ll do a simple digital sketch with your idea and send you. Once you like it, we’ll proceed to work on the card.

Once finished, we’ll send photos of the finished mtg commission and ask for the payment. The magic the gathering cards will be shipped in less than a week and you’ll be messaged with a tracking number.
