A LITTLE HISTORY LESSON AND EXPLANATION OF ACEO'S AND ATC'S

ACEO means Artist Card Editions and Originals.
ATC stands for Artist Trading Card.
ATC's and ACEO's are collectible.
ATC's are the artist's substitute for sports-themed trading cards. There are two rules for ATC's: they must measure 2.5"x3.5" so they will fit in the same plastic sleeves that sports cards are kept in and they can NEVER be sold - only traded. Oops, three rules - the artist writes their name, contact information, title of the ATC and number (1/8, 2/8...) if it's part of an edition.

ATCs are called originals; sets of identical ATCs are called editions and are numbered; sets of ATCs that are based on one theme but that are different are called series.
OOAK means One Of A Kind.

That explains ATC's but what about ACEO's? Since ATC's can't be sold, only artists can trade and collect with other artist effectively cutting out non-artists who appreciate the art and would like to collect it. Therefor, ACEO's became the answer to this dilemma - they can be sold and purchased and traded freely, including everyone who wants to play and collect.
