4 Things To Look for When Buying ACEO Cards on eBay

What are ACEOs?

ACEO stands for Art Cards Editions and Originals. These miniature works of art are a fun way to collect paintings without spending a fortune.

Today thousands of artists sell ACEO versions of their work. The great thing about the ACEO movement is that they are usually much more affordable than their larger counterparts.

Although works by the most popular artists may still sell for several hundred dollars, prints can be found for around ten dollars. These reasonably-priced art cards make it possible for everyone to collect art.

How are they created?
Some are original paintings. Others are print editions. Every style of art can be found in ACEO versions, including abstracts, impressionism, realism, collages, oil, watercolor, and acrylic paintings, pastels, pencil drawings, digital art, and photographs.

The same range that can be found in full-size works of art can be found in ACEOs. Any theme may be depicted, including everything from cute animals to beautiful scenic views, and even sci fi or Star Wars themes. Many collectors seek out their favorite artists or themes. Flowers, horses and cats are always among the most popular cards.

How big are they?
All ACEO cards measure 2.5” by 3.5”, or about the size of a baseball card. Any other size is not considered an ACEO.

How can they be displayed?

It can be hard to display all of your ACEO cards so that you can enjoy them. I think that tiny tabletop easels are a great way to display them. You can also mat or frame ACEO pieces, or keep them in binders protected by special plastic sleeves.
