You can get started today! But first, understand the difference between an Amateur Series and a Pro Series.
NeonMob is free to use and anyone can create one account. Artists from around the world create original, limited-edition trading card series and offer them for sale and for free to our large and rapidly growing community of collectors. Collectors build collections by opening random packs of cards, trading with other collectors, and discovering new series. Collectors receive free packs daily but can also buy packs if they want to grow their collections more quickly. Learn more about how NeonMob works.
A series is a set of cards containing anywhere from 5 to hundreds of different cards. Each card in a series is released with a limited number of copies available to collect. After all cards have been claimed from packs, the only way to collect the series is through trading. Most series have hundreds of different collectors while the most popular series can have many thousands of collectors! Check out the creator handbook.
To start creating an Amateur series, no pre-approval is required. Before you start creating a Pro series, you'll need approval from the NeonMob community. Submit an original image (created by you) to the Vote page and briefly describe your idea. Pro series are approved based on the strength of their original artwork and the submission's popularity. Approval can take anywhere from 24 hours to one week. Before you submit, be sure to read here about our rules on fair use and originality. These rules apply to both Amateur and Pro series.
Artists have created series about monsters, cats, plants, abstract shapes, fantastical landscapes, and countless other themes. The most successful series feature beautiful imagery, creative storytelling, and a unique perspective. Go to Collect to see what's popular on the NeonMob marketplace today, but remember – the tastes of collectors are always changing, so get creative! More on best practices for creating a series.
Creators earn royalties on approved collections sold on the open marketplace. For each series published on NeonMob, creators earn 30% of any revenue generated by pack sales. Creators can earn between hundreds and thousands of dollars per month for the length of time a series is available for sale. Learn more about selling.
