An aceo measures 2.5 x 3.5 and stands for ART CARD Editions and Originals. They are the size of a typical baseball trading card.
How did the movement of ATC cards start?
In 1997, M. Vanci Stirnemann, a Swiss artist, created 1200 cards by hand as part of an exhibit. On the last day he invited others to create their own cards and trade with him during the closing reception. After that the movement took off as other artists organized major "swap" events!
ACEO cards developed from this as cards that could be bought and sold for collectors.
