Art directors Art Spiegelman and Mark Newgarden, both from the NPD (New Product Development) department, created the card-type for the OS3 Garbage Pail kids card backs along with artist Tom Bunk who created the reverse 'WANTED' card artwork using water colours. Bunk also started working on the front of the cards for this release. The 'WANTED' backs use the same blue and red colors as the GPK logo on the card fronts. Due to the introduction of completed puzzles to the GPK franchise during the OS2 set the amount of reverse card artwork is greatly reduced. Eighteen individually known pieces of artwork were completed for the OS3 set with four images that repeat within the series. The OS3 and OS4 card backs were modeled after the Topps Wanted Posters sets released in 1967 (0-420-91-01-7) and 1968 (UK), in 1975 (0-419-21-01-5) and 1976 (UK) and in 1980 (0-450-21-01-0 wrapper; 4-450-26-01-0 poster), along with the Wanted Stickers set released in 1975 (0-498-21-01-4; packaging produced in 1974). All 'Wanted' artwork was created by Jack Davis and re-coloured for every release with some updated card-type; due to space, the 'Stickers' do not always contain all of the original card-type from previous iterations. The posters measure roughly 20 x 24 inches.

The NPD Department would create the revised artwork and card type, but the Art Department was in charge of the overall design and would produce the composition of the front side and card backs as well as the promotional material and packaging. Comp images were generated to help guide the final card type design and artwork placement. The mash-up mock-up for 'FATSO' contains generic straight lines for most of the card type and copyright line; the original Wanted Stickers title would eventually become 'FAT SLOB' for the OS4 set. The image showcases the OS3 'PRINCIPAL' final artwork image by Tom Bunk, albeit the character is sporting a brown suit instead of green. The 'WANTED FOR GROSS NEGLIGENCE' is misspelled with the word 'CROSS' and would eventually become 'FOR GROSS NEGLECT' for the aforementioned OS4 card back. A notation at the bottom of the sheet reads 'COMP FOR GENERAL LOOK ONLY' and applied to both the OS3 and OS4 reverse card design. The NPD Department would give feedback at a later stage and eventually give the final 'okay'.

~ GPK card-type: "Practicing brain surgery without a license" added to expand on the name alias 'The Butcher'. The image has been updated where the victim's head has been sheered off instead of a buzzed stripe. The original 'BARBER' had the butcher still
whistling while he worked but had the pair of sheers-like scissors around the customer's (aka victim's) neck about to cut off his noggin. The customer has nicks and cuts all over his head, bleeding and per the color rough, hairs would've been added everywhere — as is seen on the final card.

~ Although OS1 cards 9a Boozin' BRUCE and 9b Drunk KEN highly suggest alcohol through imagery and nomenclature, OS2 cards 47a Disgustin' JUSTIN and 47b Vile KYLE were the first images to have the 'BEER' label placed within the artwork -- the 2011 Flashback Series 3 removes this label, but the 2014 Chrome Series 2 images remain uncensored. The original final artwork for the reverse OS3 card backs for 106a Fowl RAOUL and 106a MACK Quack has the label removed for the final image and has 'DELETE BEER' written over the card proof; possibly to avoid any backlash concerning alcoholism (... but abuse is fine). Later GPK images sneak in the 'BEER' label by using the word 'rootbeer'. The 'BEER' label can also be seen within the origigal color rough.
