It depends...is the card glossy?

a) If not then nothing needed.

b) If so...how glossy?

b1) If it is just photo paper glossy just send it.
b2) If it is Topps chrome glossy...How did you make that!?!

Have fun and plan on getting addicted.

Awesome custom and good luck!! Normally with photos or regular Topps (paper) base cards, you don't need to prep, but for chrome cards or other glossy cards, I use some baby powder. Just spread it out evenly, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe it all off and the surface of the card will be ready to hold the auto. Good luck!

I didn't read and thought that was a real super and was about to say how ridiculous it would be to send out a superfractor haha.

Good luck! If it's glossy, I usually "erase" the entire surface (with a bold, pink eraser, just like you would if you were erasing pencil marks). Or, like Noah said, you could use baby powder.
