Thanks Roland! What size do the pictures need printing? Is it 8” by 10” thanks :cry:
I am not completely sure, but I vaguely remember reading that they were 11"x14". This is also more consistent with the ratio of 1600x1200 pixels in Roland's images - and with the scenes in the movie in which Doc is holding one of the frames, or where you can see the frames in the background - these look larger than 8"x10"

Look at this part of a behind the scenes Polaroid:

You can see a 8.5x11 in. letter behind the newspaper frame. If you count the pixels on this Polaroid, you will get the dimensions of the scientists frames: The frames are exactly 15x19 inches and the visible pictures are 11x15 inches (frame thickness: 2 inches).

Thanks! This makes a lot of sense. Let me guess: if the visible area is 11"x15", the full size may be 12"x16" which is a common size. This also matches exactly the pixel ratio (1200x1600) of your files, with a nice value of 100dpi.

Hi All,

Long time reader but infrequent poster.

I have been trawling through this thread wanting some screen accurate copies of both the 1985 and 1955 Marty letters. I find many to claim as being such, is there a definitive consensus on this? I found a post from Roland noting he was going to make 1 with envelope... you know that's going to be good.. was this ever completed?

Then... I came across the Almanac files... and that dick who was selling your work! That's terrible. This is now another project I am interested in and I note that Roland was going to do a write up on achieving the silver cover... dud thus happen? I can't find any record of it...

Thirdly, the Blast from the past receipt.. what was the final consensus on making this? Printed clear foot with clear letters? Silver letters on coloured plastic?

Any help on the above would be amazing.

Thanks all

1985 and 1955 Marty letters
I have attached my 1955 Marty letter and Lou's Cafe envelope. The 1985 letter has not been done because there are only a few reference images of the actual prop which are not very good.

For the 1955 letter, youngpaddy1 put the handwriting together from HD screencaps and I did the top section and the envelope.

When printed on Monarch/Executive sized stationery and envelopes they should be a screen-accurate match to the ones used in the movie.

The Almanac receipt was screen-printed silver on a transparent blue plastic.
With some trial and error you can duplicate this effect using toner foil and a laminator.

Some time ago, in one of the RPF forums, someone shared the image of Doc and Marty in 1885 in front of the clock, with the hands edited, for building actual clocks. I can't find this anymore, so I am posting it here:docmarty_big_nologo edit.jpg
I used this image to build a clock in a frame:
20190514_224832.jpg
After posting my clock in the "BTTF Forever" facebook group, I got lots of nice feedback, and I was asked if I would share the image and/or sell the clock.
I am very hesitant with both, since I did not create the image, so I wanted to get the "official" RPF opinion first:
a) since I can not find the original image on RPF, I can't point the people to it. Would it be considered appropriate if I would share the image with other fans in that FB group?
b) Would it be considered appropriate if I would sell a small number of these clocks (with no huge profit) in the FB group. Although I did not create the original image, the final product (= the framed clock) includes a significant amount of additional work.
I love the RPF and I certainly do not want to violate any rules - so I appreciate your guidance! (and I hope that this is the right place for posting this).
