artist trading cards

So I've talked to several people about our artist trading card project & it seems like it is going to be a go.
To be part of the second wave we need 15 of your ATCs by October 15, 2010 (Attn ATC / Silber Records / PO Box 18062 / Raleigh, NC 27619 / USA).
Packs of 5 cards will be $5 postage paid.  They'll be available in late October 2010.

Here's some of the requirements & info about the card series:
All cards are individual original pieces of art (It is acceptable that original pieces be a series or similar to each other (e.g. the same subject drawn on ten different cards)).
Physical size: 2.5" x 3.5" on a very heavy stock (such as posterboard, chipboard, or a white washed baseball card).
Not overly 3 dimensional as the majority of these will be going through the mail.
Please spray fixative/varnish over your work if necessary (especially things like un-inked pencil).
Put work in water proof bag before mailing (ziploc).
Put separators between cards to prevent damage in transit.
Nothing printed out on a printer (block prints are fine).
It is acceptable (& suggested) that original pieces are as a series or similar to each other (e.g. the same subject drawn on ten different cards).
Send as many cards as you want, you'll get a 2 packs back for every 15 cards.
Please put your contact information on the back of each individual card as a goal is for these to promote your work (printed stickers are good for this).
The final packs will be made from wax paper & have five cards in each pack by five different artists.
Do not use copyrighted/trademarked characters that you do not own the rights to.
