Play Smart trading cards, produced by Visual AIDS, are a straight-forward and sexy approach to promote harm reduction, HIV testing, and post-exposure prophylaxis among gay men. Play Smart packages include trading cards, a sticker, condoms, and lube. The back of each card gives information to encourage smarter choices about safer sex. The Summer 2011 set of Play Smart features the work of New York City artists Michael Alago, Mike Harwood, Luna Luis Ortiz and Paul Mpagi Sepuya.

Visual AIDS utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over. Every year Visual AIDS commissions visual artists to create open-ended editions that promote HIV prevention and AIDS awareness as a response to the lack of creative and compelling HIV/AIDS messages. Past editions have included tote bags, stickers, postcards, posters, buttons, e-cards, and even balloons.
