    I'm looking into free FTP servers unless someone else has a better idea. I'd e-mail them but I don't want to be smothered in having to send a tonne of emails all the time...

    I finally got a chance to download it. It looks perfect! I assume the PDF file has a transparent background so it will only print the writing and not the white background? I haven't tried printing yet. I am going to order the correct paper. Thanks again for your hard work Orange Blend! We all appreciate it.

    I'm not sure how PDF encodes it but the BG in my original Illustrator file is indeed transparent. I'm 99% sure that the PDF retains this.

    I opened it up in CS4 and it's perfect. I have aged up my textured heavy weight watercolor paper with coffee tea and bleach and I'm headed to kinkos later tonight. I'll post pictures when it's done. Thanks again.

    amityshark that's exactally what I did to mine except staples told menim not allowed back to do it again cuz I jamed thei printer 2 times lol. They said the paper was too thick... I used 140 weight. Next tome I will use 100 weight which is more transparent ( more accurate to the movie)

    Anyways looking forward to seeing your pics.

    I'll post pics of my hook dagger WIP later this week

    Yeah I called Kinkos ahead of time and they said it was cool and that they had printed on thick paper before. Hopefully it wont be a problem. By the way I talked to the owner of The Sand and Stone (the guy who made Hoffman's hook and the ransom dagger for the film) and he quoted me about $1800 for each piece. I may have to pay them a visit. :rolleyes They do sell movie replicas to collectors occasionally depending on the movie. Super nice guy. They are in Burbank CA He told me right now they are working on stuff for POTC 4:eek

    Was asked to re-link this by a member. Enjoy. :)

    View attachment Hook Letter Export.jpg

    It's not the PDF. It's still too big for the site. However this JPG is still massive and now it should live here forever. :thumbsup

    The member thanks you ;-) Looks great and will be a nice addition for Sarednab's Hook replica... I might have missed it in this thread, but how big should the note be? Is the image the correct scale?

    I'm not sure if a final consensus was come to but the image is tabloid size (11x17). I imagine the final piece should be about 11x15 so print it out on tabloid and then cut an inch of both the top and bottom. That makes is "Folio" size which makes sense in the context.

    Sorry to raise this thread from the grave, but I was wondering if anyone is or was doing a run of the ransom note? I've tried to contact GiveMeSomeProps but I see he hasn't been active here since 2011. Anyone know how to get a hold of him, or if anyone else is offering a high quality note for sale?

    Thanks,

    -Vince

    Awesome of you MF. :thumbsup

    Vince, no one made a run because it's considered poor form to take something from the free paper props section and sell it (happens all the time on ebay though :thumbsdown ). I never did a run myself because I figured it would be simple enough to print & age at home as a starter paper prop. :)

    For the record though, if anyone would like to offer a printing/ageing service with this document I don't really mind as long as it's very clear that the original file is available here for free with a link.

    It is free here after all :lol
    I know some don't have time or knowledge of making a good print and aging it,
    So it is the least I can do :)

    :lol you can't PM them :lol
    I had made one for someone and made an extra back up that I am giving to the person who I told to PM me. Don't have any more handy...
    Sorry.

    However the method here is really easy. Print one out at your local print shop and then experiment with aging techniques. :)

    Hello, the Dropbox account that this PDF is located in needs a password change in order to access. Can someone help with the password change or send me a copy of the PDF?

    Thanks for the help!

    Re: Kindest Personal Regards...

    Just curious if someone is now printing your file and selling it on the RPF Facebook page?

    Re: Kindest Personal Regards...

    Did you put some tells in your file to confirm it's your file he's using? Your file is so * screen accurate that, if someone else is also creating a screen accurate version, both would be very, very similar.

    I made a quick overly of your file on the picture, and with some repositioning of the words, I come to this result:

    Image1.jpg

    Could be your file, but with some tells, we could be certain...

    If it's done from a sketch he made LOOKING at the movie, than his letter spacing is so close to Michaels version, that he has to have one hell of a sharp eye. If he did id based on a screencap, as Michael did, than it's more logical that they are almost identical.

    Don't know what to think, to be honest. I would not claim that he stile Michaels work without more proof, though. People tackle the same prop, sometimes, and if both attempts are very close to the original, than it's also logical that they are almist identital to each other. But I'm happy with my ransome not I made from Michaels file (althoug I'll give it another try with another type of paper in the future). So thanks again for that, Michael!

    Well, looks identical to me. No, there are no tells, but the texture in the D would probably give it away if we got a close up look. I find it hard to believe that he made that D so perfect with a sharpie.

    Honestly though, if it takes 4 hours as he's claiming why in the hell would he only be charging $30?

    Whatever.

    Maybe if we find someone who actually bought one of these, and can provide us with a scan, this could clear up things. If an overlay matches perfectly in that case, chances are pretty big that he used your file...

    Not sure I really care that much. Made it 7 years ago for people to enjoy, just rubs me the wrong way if it is a copy.

    Very nice... Did you use A-format paper? I guess they also used US sized paper in the movie...

    That's A4 so I'd imagine a little bit smaller than the prop itself, but did with what I had in hand!
