ACT vs ACEO thoughts

Here's a little fella I have created for an ATC swap. He was created a whopping 9 times! Yeah don't ask it was a bit much for me and rather a challenge as the ATC swap is rather crafty- give me paper, and paint and a little glitter - super: give me some ribbon and stuff - yikes it takes a day to do the thing :)

On the ATC front I think I will open and esty store with them and brave the highs and lows of shoppers and the post office. However, I have been wondering what to call my stuff. I figure if I draw it all on paper with my pencil then paint etc it would be and ACEO , but what happens when I use line art  created on the  computer (and I sell this line art as art stamps) then print the line art  and colour it by hand?  While it might be a one of a kind, it sort of isn't. Can it still be called ACEO or does it just become ATC, as it is not really a print either. Any thought on this would be great because it would effect the price of the thing. Another point to ponder in this is the fact that I sell the line art stamps( digital stamps), so others too can create something with the same line art.

Love your new Art Card. I've been having the same discussion on the ACEO and the ATC. It's a bit confusing and trying to figure out this world via google. If you come up with answers would be an awesome share! Thanks for popping by over at POP ART MINIS and leaving an awesome comment!

He is so cute! I think that an ACEO is an "art, card, edition, original" and an ATC is an "artists trading card". An ACEO would be sold whereas an ATC would be free and usually swopped.

Hi Jehanne, he's gorgeous... I never know whether to call them ATC's or ACEO's... Linda's comment is interesting... personally I don't think it matters what you call it...if someone likes and it's for sale..sell it... have a great week...

Ahh yes Linda, but I think the lines are or have gotten blurred.
I mean if I use a public domain art and they make a card with it I guess the whole creation maybe called original but is it really? :)
