Last week we received an email from Star Wars customizer Howard Wen aka thewriteguy informing us of a Vintage Style Cardback Kit that he recently created. Some of you may remember the epic plans for his cardboard 1:18 scale U-Wing that he shared with all of our readers so they could make a better scaled version of the Rogue One vehicle at home. We thought it was great how he released his plans to the public so everyone could download them for free.
His latest kit includes pre-made layer stacks that work on Paint-NET (a free image editor for Windows) that gives you the ability to make cardbacks of your own. Basically, all you need to do is add a photo or artwork, turn "on" or "off" layer categories for figure frame and nameplate sizes, bar frame effects, etc., and you can generate a Vintage-style cardback design with ease in no time at all. The result will be a cardback in 6" x 9" size, 300 dpi. He even included instructions for how to glue your printed cardback design onto card stock.
If you are interested in taking advantage of this awesome offer just click the links below!
If you use another image editor, like Photoshop, then you can download just the templates.
