Default Proxies?

Hey, I was wondering if anyone knew where I could print yugioh proxies from? I want them to be able to fit in a yugioh sized sleeve like players choice. Is Yugioh Wikia images the right size?

Nope. What I did was I did some guess and check on Indesign to get the squares right, and then I did some magic to resize them into the square, then printed them off. If you're using word, there's no way to my knowledge to get them EXACTLY the right size, it'll always be a little small, or a little bit too big to fit in Players Choice. Basically, resize the images from the Wiki and keep printing and comparing till you get it right.

Having them smaller than normal is fine. Are there any tools on gimp I can use to resize it?

1. Open Word.
2. Get a piece of actual paper and hold it in front of the screen.
3. Adjust zoom in Word so that it's the same size as an actual piece of paper.
4. When that's done, paste image of card into Word document.
5. Get an actual Yu-Gi-Oh! card and hold it in front of the screen.
6. Resize the image in the document until it's the same size as the actual one (or a little smaller).
7. Print.

That's what I did once. It worked fairly well, all things considered.

Just take a ruler and measure a card first and then resize an image to match those dimensions.

I've always just used the little corner resize stuff. Don't do the up/down left/right stuff, it distorts the image.

A Yu-Gi-Oh! card has a length of 8.5 CM and a width of 5.85 CM. Just open Photoshop (or Gimp, or Paint, or whatever), resize your pics, and print them. Then cut them out, and put them on top of another card in a sleeve so that you can shuffle them.

It's best to print out your proxies a little smaller than an actual card. Doing this will prevent the proxies from being spotted while shuffling the deck (they'll stick out of the top of the sleeve a bit, if not resized).
