About CTC

We're no rookie when it comes to creating cards

Custom Trading Cards (CTC) is a trading card photo booth service and the culmination of over a decades worth of experience creating collectible keepsakes for guests and attendees at events all over the globe. CTC was created by Conor Mongan, an award-winning former senior card designer who has worked in the sports design industry since 1999 and has produced creative projects that have been featured in ESPN The Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and other publications.

After years of creating trading cards for stars like LeBron James, Tom Brady, Albert Pujols and Sidney Crosby, he transitioned that same skill-set to the event world, providing a final product as close to a real trading card as possible, created on-site in less than a minute.

Our process and execution has been honed for over a decade working with top brands all over the world, and has a number of options to allow you to completely customize the experience for your event. Automated photo booth kiosks. Actual photographers. Branding. Social Sharing. Green screen. Animated cards. Autographs. You name it, and we can do it.

CTC has offices in the United States and Canada — Austin, TX and Edmonton, AB, respectively — so we care more than capable to handle trading card events across North America, or anywhere else on the globe.

Whether it’s a small private event or a multi-day corporate activation, we look forward to bringing one of the most unique photo experiences around to your next event.
