How to Print Pokemon Cards

By Ann Lin

Pokemon is a video game-based media franchise owned by Nintendo. The Pokemon Trading Card Game is popular collectible card game that features many rare, holographic Pokemon cards and special Trainer cards. Pokemon cards typically feature a picture of the Pokemon at the top of the card and a description of its attacks, damage, resistances and weaknesses at the bottom of the card. Instead of buying pre-made cards, printing your own Pokemon cards can be a fun way to add personalization to your Pokemon card deck.

Step 1

Save your Pokemon card to your computer by right-clicking the image and clicking "Save As". Save the image to an easily-accessible location, such as your Desktop.

Step 2

Open your saved Pokemon card image in a graphics editor such as Adobe Photoshop or MS Paint.

Step 3

Resize your Pokemon card image to about 6.3 cm by 8.8 cm so that it will be the same size as a real Pokemon card. Be sure to hold down the "Shift" key if you are attempting to resize manually or check the "Proportional" box to resize the image automatically in order to make sure that the Pokemon card is proportional.

Step 4

Print the image by clicking "File", then "Print" on your graphics editor. Be sure to set your color printer's settings so that it does not scale the Pokemon card image while printing.
