Make your own Rubin Voices trading card!

Our Rubin Voices series highlights the diversity of people who make the observatory and its science possible. Every feature comes with a trading card—learn how to make your own!


Each trading card has six main components:

  1. Name
  2. Current job (or dream job)
  3. A photo
  4. A saying or quote
  5. A short description of the job in #2
  6. Three highlights or fun facts

To create your own Rubin Voices trading card, download one of the two customizable templates below. You can either complete your trading card digitally, or print the blank template to fill out on paper.

Suggestion: if you print out your template, try drawing yourself in place of a photo!

Share your completed card on social media with the hashtag #MyRubinVoice
