Perfect Sized Proxy Template

To size your proxies correctly you will need a template to make it much easier.

You'll need to download Sribus for this one. Don't worry its free.
Download Scribus

I use a PC with windows 8. I do not know if this works well on Mac.

Here is the Card Template. It wont show up on the Google Drive previewer but it will download what you need.

Here's what you should have after opening the file.

Now all you have to do is just drag your high resolution Magic: The Gathering Cards like this.

Then just fill up the page with everything you need and they should be ready to be perfect prints.
The pictures may be blurry on the screen. Sometimes that's OK. Just as long as the images are over ~400 x ~600 they should print out fine.


  1. Oh my god, I'm so thankful with you, you have just make my work so much easier. I had to make 52 pages of proxies and without your template I think I couldn't make it on time.

    2. haha, just after saying this I found a way. export to PDF first, then print.

  4. Mine a printing too small. Any ideas? Is it because I am using this template on scribus 1.4.6?

  5. Im no expert, but I believe you just made an excellent point. Microleaves You certainly fully understand what youre speaking about, and I can truly get behind that.

  6. Thank you so much for this! Trying to print proxies of the joke decks to get my parents to play with me. I thought goofy cards would help ease them in to playing and they seem interested. I'm completely new to this scribus thing, how do i format it to print these cards on an 11 x 17 page?

  7. Excellent website you have here, so much cool information!..
