Novelty ID Information

  Novelty id and novelty ids can be found online. The best Novelty id is printed on PVC card stock and hologram lamination, as they are very difficult to produce outside of a modern card-printing Novelty id lab. Which brings us to why I created this site. There are companies that state that you can buy novelty id or novelty ids for all 50 states, but do not trust any company that takes credit cards or check as payment. This is fine if you are buying a new laptop, but not when you want to buy Novelty id. Any real novelty id site will take cash for novelty id to protect them from being shut down. Never buy a novelty id from any site with a mailing address in the USA or its neighbor Canada. Any site located there will be a guarantee of a rip off or poor quality novelty ids that will not be a novelty id any use.

This tutorial is designed to help you replicate a driver’s license. You can replicate both 30 mil PVC driver’s licenses as well as thinner, bendable identification cards. The methods provided in this tutorial are designed for novelty purposes only such as replicating the Superbad McLovin ID or making ID cards of your favorite celebrities. It is illegal to forge identification for purposes of identity theft or buying alcohol or tobacco.


  1. How to use the templates
    Search a Peer-2-Peer network such as Kazaa, LimeWire or BitTorrent to find a template. By using Adobe Photoshop or Macromedia Fireworks, you should easily be able to edit the templates. You should first begin by changing the text fields.

    Edit the eye and hair color fields as follows:
    Eye Color- Indicate eye color abbreviation:
    BLK - Black
    GRY - Gray
    MAR - Maroon
    BLU - Blue
    GRN – Green
    PNK - Pink
    BRO – Brown
    HAZ - Hazel
    MUL – Multicolor

    Hair Color- Indicate hair color abbreviation:
    BAL – Bald
    BRO – Brown
    SDY - Sandy
    BLK - Black
    GRY - Gray
    WHI - White
    BLN – Blonde
    RED – Red

  2. Editing the Photo
    You need to scan in a passport photo or other acceptable ID picture. Also scan in a signature. If the background of the passport photo does not match the background of the state id, you will need to do some editing.
    After scanning the passport photo into the computer, the person's face will need to be separated from the background so it flows seamlessly with your ID card template. Using a program such as Adobe Photoshop or Macromedia Fireworks provides you with an image editing tool called "Magic Wand". This tool will allow you to click a color in the image and it will select all surrounding colors that are similar or the same. There will be a slider that will allow you to select the amount of variance from the color you select. The higher the variance relates to more of the image that will be selected. Once the background is nearly fully selected without containing any of the person's face, press 'Delete' on your keyboard to erase it. You can then magnify the image and use the eraser tool to clean up around the person's face. At this point, zoom out and copy the image. It can be pasted onto your ID card template. It will then flow seamlessly into your template design and you can choose any background color you want!

  3. Add a Barcode
    The unusual-looking scrambled barcode on the back of most driver’s licenses is known as a PDF417 barcode. This barcode contains most of the information contained on the front of the license. By editing this readout, you can encode your information into this barcode.

  4. Magnetic Stripe
    If your license requires a magnetic stripe and you want it to be scanable, it can be encoded with an encoder. Generally these are very expensive and can run $400-1200 dollars. There are two types, HiCo and LoCo. HiCo and LoCo magnetic differ in that HiCo are much more difficult to demagnetize. The encoders for these are much more expensive than for LoCo. Most HiCo encoders encode LoCo stripes as well. The best way to program the stripe is to decode a working driver’s license, edit the data, and then program it back onto the stripe. Encode the magnetic stripe after the card is finished.

  5. Printing
    We will be printing on a synthetic paper. There are two types of synthetic paper that are nearly the same. Teslin and Artisyn paper are single layer, silica-filled, polyolefin printing substrate with unique microporous and temperature resistance features that make it the product of choice for laminated ID badges. Teslin is more expensive than Artisyn and much less versatile. There are two types of Teslin. Laser Teslin is obviously for a laser printer and same with the inkjet. Printing on Teslin with an inkjet does not work well and tends to look grainy and smear. The inkjet is coated with chemicals to absorb the ink effectively. Inkjet Teslin tends to be twice the price than laser Teslin. The better option is a new synthetic paper called Artisyn. It is cheaper than even laser Teslin, works well with all types of printers including inkjet and laser printers. It also tends to produce better print quality results.

    The next step is to select your printer. The preferred method is to use a pigmented based inkjet printer like an Epson printer with DuraBrite ink. This tends to produce incredible results and works well with Laser Teslin even though it is not a laser printer. Better results are still achieved on Artisyn paper. If a pigmented ink printer is not available, a laser printer is still a good result. Laser printers produce sharp and clear results, but the ink tends to look waxy. Lastly, any dye-based inkjet printer will work fine. A dye-based inkjet printer is that standard color printer that most people have in their home. Again, if you use dye-based inks make sure to use Inkjet Teslin or Artisyn. You should print on highest quality photo settings.

    Print on one sheet of paper, both front and back.

  6. Cutting.
    Cut out the ID from the paper. Tracing the dimensions of the ID using a butterfly pouch is generally helpful. A paper cutter or X-Acto knife is also helpful.

  7. Laminating
    You must use thermal laminating in order to bond the butterfly pouch to the synthetic paper. Once laminated, the card will harden and resemble a PVC card. You must use a thermal (heat) pouch laminator. Avery, Banner American, or GBC makes good ones that run around $50.

    Place the insert into the butterfly pouch. You must place the card into a carrier. Run the carrier through the laminator. Immediately following lamination, it is helpful to place the card under something flat like a book so that it cools flat.

  8. Holograms
    Generally, it is acceptable to use a generic hologram. Very few people actually examine the hologram and read what it says on it. I have had my fake for over two years with a generic hologram on it and I have never had a problem. If you’re concerned about making something that looks truly authentic, there are other methods to replicate holograms.

  9. Making a Hologram
    The gold holograms on many ID cards are called binary holograms. These holograms can be easily reproduced using Pearl-Ex paint and Photo-EZ paper.

    This product is for making stencils. A stencil is basically the outline of a picture with the negative part missing. To make the stencil you scan the hologram off your id, then convert it to an all black image. Next you print the image on a transparency. A transparency is a transparent sheet of plastic meant for inkjet printers or lasers. Then you take the transparency and tape it to the Photo-EZ. You put it out in the sun and all the areas of the material not covered by the black negative of the holo cures. When washed the part covered by the negative washes away, leaving you with your stencil. You will want to order the high resolution material.

    As for the painting material, the two main ones are Interference Gold (Fine) made by Golden Acrylics and PERL-EX DUOTONE. The latter of the materials work best because of the fact it reflects two colors of the spectrum. Perl-Ex comes as a powder and preparation is needed. These paints are transparent when viewed from straight on. When viewed from different angles you see different colors depending on the particular colors of the paint. Perl-Ex comes in Duo Red-Blue, Duo Blue-Green, and Duo Green-Yellow.

    You have to buy a Transparent Base made for paints to prepare the Perl-Ex. A good one is Speedball Transparent Base. You mix in a 1:50 ratio. 1 part Per- 50 parts base. If you are using Golden acrylics then you use a 5:1 ratio. 5 parts paint 1 part base. When applying the paint in the stencil, you should use if possible one of those brushes made for screen printing. It is like a pencil but with a flexible tip. A sponge can be used but extra care needs to be taken when applying. You want to apply a very thin amount and practice will be needed to get it right.

    On a lot of the new ID's there is a multicolored hologram that reflects the full spectrum (like a rainbow). This is especially true of most of the Canadian ids. What you do is pick the two most dominant colors and buy the matching Perl Ex colors. This will be good enough to reproduce the holo. The holo can be put directly on the finished ID or before lamination on the inside of the pouch. If you choice is the inside then remember to put it in the reverse.

  10. Finishing Touches
    It is recommended that you sand the edges of the hologram with a very fine grit sandpaper. This removes the jagged edges of the synthetic paper. You should lightly sand the front and back of the id to give it a more worn look.


  • Lastly, these instructions were to make a 30 mil drivers license that resembles a PVC card. If you want to make something thinner that bends corner to corner like some ID cards, you can remove the front part of the butterfly pouch and simply laminate the back of the pouch with the synthetic paper. Many machines use this method, but it can be accomplished manually. You can also replicate signature strips by scratching the surface of the butterfly pouch with sandpaper.

  • Enough information has been given about the products needed, so that they may be searched for on any search engine for purchase.


  • It is illegal to forge an ID card in most jurisdictions. Do not copy an existing ID; this article only concerns making a fake ID using the depths of your own creativity.

  • It is illegal to hold yourself out as an authority that you are not in many jurisdictions.

  • It is illegal in most jurisdictions to present a fake ID card for the purposes of circumventing the law. This is a novelty item for the purposes of acting or gifts only and should be used for legal activities.
