I sell mine online at the moment and I was wondering if anyone sold theirs at fairs and if so do they sell well. I'm thinking of marketing them as affordable mini artworks (or something like that!) and selling the fact that they are mini original artworks. I'd love to hear what people think/how if went if you have done this and also I'd love some display ideas as they are so small!

ACEO stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals, they are collectable miniature works of art created in any medium always measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches, They can be collected in an album to browse and enjoy, these pocket sized pet portraits look wonderful framed too.

Originally called ATCs Artist Trading cards, they were swapped amongst the art community to show samples of work but never sold. ACEOs are for sale to the public which provides a great opportunity to collect original artwork and limited edition prints at an affordable price by many talented artists out there, not only fun to collect they could also be a good invest

I think an ACEO is an ATC 'Artists Trading Cards', just guessing so may be wrong.

Sorry - should have been more clear. ACEO's are the sellable versions of ATC's which are Artists trading cards. Mini works of art basically!

Hi There,

I do display some ACEOs / ATCs for sale at Fayres, although they are not as popular and easy to sell as they are on the net. But people do like them and they attract alot of attention to my stand. I display them on a wire stand that they slot into.
