    Heres my version of the Ministry of Magic id card as seen in the book Harry Potter Film Wizardry, Took me a while to get it right the only thing i wasnt 100% happy with was the font that i used for the rules part (above the signature of holder. I completly redid all of the text the only original part is the back ground. Let me know what you think

    The missing text i.e. your name etc i found to be similar to any Typewriter style font but in red as it is on the original. The finger printes were done in purple ink, there are 2 stamps needed but not managed to draw them yet.

    Thanks... only violet covers left...hehehe ...
    And... the stamp over photography is quite difficult to get...Any idea wich one is it?
    The stamp over fingerprints could be done through photoshop and the green one in the first page too... but the photo one is hard...I think.

    Still looking for the violet cover? I have a pretty decent scan of an actual card that I have edited the glue line out of.

    Oh by the way, in case you are wondering about the size of the ID, each panel is 3" wide x 4.5" high.

    How is this for the elusive photo stamp...

    Should print out pretty close to the correct size for ID photo.

    An alternative to printing the stamp separately over the already printed ID and glued-in photo is print the inverse stamp image onto clear acetate at Best print quality. You then place the ink side of the acetate over the photo and press...voila, instant authentic looking stamp.

    What do you mean "real" card? The picture included in the Film Wizardry book is of the actress who played Mafalda in Deathly Hallows Pt 1. That makes the card and picture in the FW book pretty real.

    The other thing to keep in mind is that there can be several versions of the same prop used for different purposes like on-screen or promotions, etc. For me the "real" prop is the one seen on-screen, the so-called "hero" prop. I don't think the ID card was ever seen on-screen so neither of these versions is the "real" one.

    Oh, wait a minute, none of this is real, this is all fantasy...right??:lol

    I meant "real" as in made by the "real" people who make the props. That makes it more "real" then anything made by a fan, as in a replica.

    I'm pretty sure the ID in the Film Wizardry book was not made by a fan. Its not as elaborate as the one in the image you provided but still, its not fan made.

    @Bear: It was dark when I took my pills this morning and it looks like I took the red one...but i just found the blue pills so I'm done.:lol

    I didn't say the FW version was fan made! All I said about the image that I posted was the real ID e.g. it's a real prop by the real film makers from the real HP exhibition as apposed to something I found on the internet that could just as easily be a fan made replica. I didn't alude to anything about it's screen accuracy or what version it was or whether it was a hero version or anything else along those lines - I'm well aware the can be many versions of a prop. I don't know how you would have preferred me to have worded my original message to avoid being questioned on what it was I was attempting to say.

    Perhaps next time a simple "thanks, it's cool!" might be all that is required.

    Probably just saying "here's an image of the ID card at the HP exhibition, looks better/different than in the FW book" or words to that effect would have done it for me.

    I was not really questioning you, I was just providing my own opinion on what you stated.

    Also, i was not trying to lecture you on anything prop related, I have no way of knowing your "prop IQ" so I just provided a little info is all.

    It certainly was not my intention to pi ss you off with my comment and its also my experience that you do not get thanked every time you post something to the forum.

    So yea, its cool.

    the stuff touring is supposed to be "real" IE made by the prop department. Stuff in the FW book , especially the inserts, were just replicated for the book. I'd hope the ones on display in the traveling exhibition would be more "real" *shrug*

    just a matter of opinion. no reason to jump on someone about it though. Too much of that around here these days. So thanks to both of you for BOTH posting useful stuff :p

    Personally, I thought we were just having a conversation about an item or two. There was no intention to jump on anyone. That is one of the problems with text messages, they can easily be taken the wrong way. My apologies. And thanks for the thanks. :)

    I took a look at it Norbert and i think it would be almost impossible to separate the fingerprints from the stamp so I am creating a replica stamp. I'm about 3/4 done and will post when finished.

    Does anyone know the standards of how to do the birthdate in that style? Like month day and year with the symbols? Also, what is the order for the fingerprints? I'm going to make one for myself, because, you know... I totally work at the Ministry of Magic...
