Trading Card Size Varieties


Trading card sizes depend on the type of cards being created. For instance, Pokemon cards measure 2.5 inches wide by 3.5 inches tall; other card games utilize different measurements.

An easy way to approximate card sizes is by holding up a standard playing card to your computer screen and holding it against its resolution. Be sure to zoom your document at 100% for accurate sizing results.


A standard trading card measures 2.5 inches wide by 3.5 inches tall; this size matches that of most baseball and playing cards and those used for Magic the Gathering and Pokemon trading card games. Some other games require different-sized trading cards that can often be identified using Geeklist or similar resources.

Although some individuals design cards with unique sizing specifications, most trading card manufacturers opt for standard sizes to optimize printing and cutting processes and allow cards to fit easily in card-collecting sleeves or album pages. It is also the most prevalent size used by credit cards and identification cards in many countries.

Some artists create Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) in a smaller size than the standard 2.5-inch by 3.5-inch size, known as miniature artist trading card format. This particular group of enthusiasts makes and trades these mini ATCs. Many even incorporate interesting shapes on top for extra visual impact!

Mini trading cards feature rounded tops easily stored in small pouches like pencil cases for convenient travel companionship. Furthermore, these cards may also be sleeved to protect them; usually, clear sleeves but other colors or patterns may be used depending on the artist’s preference.
