    Anyone get a clear screencap of the press pass Clark was wearing when saving a man from a car tonight? The episode was titled "Fade". There was a nice close-up moment where it (the pass) was large enough to read, and centered on the screen. I'd love to make up one for my wife, and my own little Smallville collection. (No sales plan here, just think it would be fun to have, and easy to make up.) It would make a good addition to the free paper prop thread, too. ;)

    Let me know if anyone has something. Thanks.

    Nice work, Sithlord. If folks help out, this one shouldn't take long at all. If only I had graphic skills... :lol

    You might want to post a Spoiler warning, I have not seen the Episode and now you "Spoiled" it .

    Sorry Propsculptor. Didn't really see what was potentially a spoiler, but modified the title.

    Very nice, Hydin. That's got to help. Now we just need someone to assemble the bits and sharpen a few edges (and maybe fix the little watermark, though it doesn't really bother me much). At times like this I begin to wonder just what programs I should learn to do this stuff myself, so I'm not just bugging you folks. :D

    Great to see this coming together so quickly.

    Here's what I can piece together with the stills, but I think we're just gonna have to use it as a template and build it from scratch.

    Notice the very small text under the globe? Anybody have any ideas??

    Here's a banner I made to use for our holiday newsletters. The font is Old English Text MT.

    [​IMG]

    I also have an original Daily Planet from Superman II. The globe and banner font look the same, so I may take it out of the frame and scan it in.

    That's looking great, Misterfusion. I agree that it's definitely the same font, but I have no ideas about the tiny text underneath the logo. Could be a good spot for the people who worked on this to slip in some names (wink, wink- contributors in this thread.). We may have this printed and laminated before Monday at this rate.

    I do like the idea of scanning in the original banner. I always wanted one of those papers, it just seems like an ideal superhero prop to me. Come to think of it, I'm gonna wear this sucker to Returns when it comes out. Maybe with a blue shirt and red jacket, too. :lol

    As mentioned, bes thing to do is just use that as a template and make it form scratch. Apart from the small text, it looks pretty simple for those versed in the grapics programs.

    Possible SPOILER BELOW.....































    Clark doesn't join the planet....he goes there so often that I suppose Chloe got him one so it's easier to get in?...even though he could just dash by the guards :lol

    "it isn't that I don't trust you, Otis..." :angel

    Were you able to read it by watching the episode, or are you making an educated guess? That looks right...just want to be sure.

    It's Always been Metropolis' Greatest Newspaper

    I wanted to make sure so I looked at some Smallville episodes featuring the Newspaper, Superman Returns, Superman: The Movie.

    I'm Pretty positve. But if your just looking at it, you can tell the first word is Metropolis

    By George, he's right. "Metropolis Greatest Newspaper"

    Here's a cleaned up scan from my Superman II Daily Planet:
    [​IMG]

    And here's a LINK to the full size scan if anybody wants it.

    Sure, I'll spearhead this one, but it'll still end up being a group project. With this kind of thing, I think it's better to have a few dozen eyes going over the project. :D

    Let the games begin.

    Steve

    Aw crap...this is my 3rd edit as I see things changing already...

    The DP globe from the S:II paper has North America below the banner; The Smallville one runs the banner across North America. Looks like I am rebuilding from scratch...Nothing is ever easy in this prop replica business, is it?

    Wow. :confused I go to work for a day and you've got everything almost done. Great job so far, everyone. Steve, you've really stepped up to the plate and delivered. Kal-El, don't think I haven't noticed your help too.

    The logo is looking good, and I finally know what the small print means. I also noticed the banner crossing the globe in different places between logos, but it's a small thing to me. That being said I wouldn't dream of saying "leave it as is" when someone wants to take it to the next level of accuracy. ;)

    I've been playing around with the images in paint, but the results were less than stellar. Time to look at photoshop (or something similar), if my computer doesn't have a fit and die at the thought of it. :lol

    I think this is going to be a fun little prop for all of us. Thanks again, guys.

    Yeah once we all get this done, It will be my first ID from the show. My collection is small and I stopped buying things recently because everything is so expensive. I hope to change that because I just got a part time job and odd jobs in the neighborhood..

    Thanks FEETCLONE I'm always glad to assist anyone who needs the help.

    Hey Gang,

    This is right up my alley. If Nobody objects, I'd be happy to tackle this project.
    Two things:
    1. I need the font (in mac format if possible - if not, I have a conversion program. Please email it to: chrismaage@hotmail.com
    2. I need to know what the top of the tag looks like - is it punched through the graphic, or is the tag hole just above it?

    I already have the laminate, so that will be the easy part. These would be cheap like my Pulp Fiction IDs - say, $5-7 shipped including the clip.

    Misterfusion - If I'm stepping on your toes, please let me know and I'll gladly step aside.
    Just trying to help :)

    -Chris

    p.s.

    I sent you the inferior PC fersion of the font, but I'm sure you'll manage :)

    Very nice. I knew this one wouldn't take long. And I'm sure it won't cost too much, especially after lots of contributors. Regardless, I'll be in for one.

    Great to see us all getting our heads together and completing this so quickly. You all deserve a :thumbsup .

    Was just watching episode 11 and roughly 21 mins in when Chloe and Clark are at the Planet, it shows chloes pres pass which is differnt from Clarks. The base is the same but instead of having one box with her name, it has two. It also doesnt' say press and has her photo on it.
    EDIT: Got a screen cap and found the photo they used on the pass (if anyone can find a higher res one, please post. I know it's out there, i've seen it before). The top box obviously says her name, the bottm is up for discussion.

    ...and the continents are a different color, and there's more space at the top above the DP banner, and it looks longer, too...

    And, obviously, It doesn't say "Press" either. The picture one could either be an earlier version or it's an inhouse ID for security purposes as opposed to the traditional "press pass".

    The 2nd line? "Intern"? An ID Number? "Cub Reporter"? :D

    Continents I believe are the same color, the pic may throw you off. It looks longer because I didn't fix the scale of it in photoshop-it was captured skwed like that. The dimensions are the same. The extra space-if there even is any-may just be how they cut the paper. The ID also showed up again in another episode. It's always hanging off her light on her desk.

    If I had to guess, I'd bet the second box says, simply: "Reporter"

    Anybody got any other info on this? I'll have a prototype done in a day or 2.
