Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!

Hi, I've come out of lurking to ask you very artistic people a question... I love collecting paper toys/crafts almost as much as I love building them....

My question is about those of you who collect too; how do you sort? I've run into a sorta catch 22, when you have a papertoy that is a speakerdog, but is skinned by say horrorwood... would you put that in a Ben the illistrator folder or a Horrorwood folder? and what about when a paper toy is skinned by two differnt artists??? (and I definatly don't want 3+ copies on my computer that would take unnessasary space)

I know this is a very WTF Random question of the day, but it's been bugging me, any help you can provide would be awesome!!!

Thanks <3

well there goes my suggestion
Yo Jessi,

I'm a collector/builder (sometimes customizer) too and I don't sort (Like most artists I'm a mess) if I want to find a toy or template I usually go to "My Photos" on NPT:
Most photo's come with a link and if not, I gotta try and find it on the net or on my comp.
And that's a lotta fun coz I come across toys I already forgot about or didn't know I had.
But if ya want to get organized, I'd run with TDDK's system. He's my "brother in crime" and
we both do it our way.

Grtz and may the P be with you! Meth.
TDDK, you ROCK my friend!!!

I'm going to get started implamenting your system, Thank you!


Much <3

Ps. Thanks Meth for making me smile!!!!!
A toy/smile a day, keeps the doctor away!!!
Inside my Urban Paper Toy folder, I list them by Artist name & most prolific toy.

For example:

JohnnyChiba_Headnoddaz (the latter helps me remember what the design is)

If there are blanks and custom color or designs by other artists, The original
blank goes in the creators folder. With a sub-folder labeled :

...>Hoofy Customs


>BoxPunx Collections
>Series 8:Analog_Abominations
