How to Create Custom Baseball Cards for your Athlete

If you’re looking to celebrate your athlete’s achievements on the field, creating a custom baseball card is a fantastic way to commemorate their hard work and dedication. With personalized baseball trading cards, you can capture special moments and create lasting memories. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the ways you can easily make your athlete’s custom baseball cards using pre-designed Photoshop templates, Canva, and Nations Photo Lab’s custom trader card options.

1. Finding a Baseball Card Photoshop Template

If you’re not sure where to start, you can easily find pre-made custom baseball card Photoshop templates online. Here are some great options from Etsy and Photodigistudio to consider:

After you're happy with your design, save your image, and head to Nations Photo Lab to create your card using our Create Your Own Trader Card option.

Not a Photoshop expert quite yet? You can actually upload Photoshop files (.psd) directly into Canva to edit them. But keep in mind, you’ll need a Canva Pro account to do so.


2. Designing your Baseball Cards in Canva

If Photoshop seems a bit daunting, and you'd like to find a free baseball card template, Canva offers a user-friendly alternative. Here’s how you can make your own baseball cards in Canva:

  1. Create a design that's 2.5"x3.5": This is the size of our custom Trader Card.
  2. Find a pre-made baseball card Canva template or make your own design: Remember, you can upload Photoshop files into Canva Pro, so if you found a template you really liked, but it was for Photoshop, you can still use for Canva. There are also dozens of Canva templates for baseball cards ready to be purchased, as well. If you don't have Canva Pro, or just want to create your own designs, you can also make your very own card from scratch using Canva's free baseball imagery.
  3. Upload your photos: Upload photos of your athlete and drag them into the template or your design. Canva’s intuitive interface makes it easy to crop and adjust images.
  4. Customize text and colors: Edit the text to include your athlete’s name, team, position, and stats. You can also change the colors to match your team’s palette.
  5. Download and order your cards: Once you’re satisfied with your design, download it in high resolution. Then you can upload your design to NPL and order your Custom Trader Card!

 

3. Nations Photo Lab Custom Trader Card Options
