Do you have plans of creating a fake novelty ID for some good laughs? Well if so, then you may consider reading the entire content of this article to be able to make a convincing fake ID regardless if it is a state identification card, driver’s license or whatever.
Here are a few steps that you have to be aware of when planning to make one.
Step number 1. Scan the ID into the printer or computer – be sure that you scan both the back and front sides and note of any holographic elements in the ID.

Step number 2. Open the scan using image editing software – this is where you’ll do the magic and by that, I mean editing some of the info in the ID.

Step number 3. Insert a new photo – whenever possible, try to get an image that’s roughly the same size and resolution as the one present on the valid ID. Zoom in or zoom out of the new photo so the head will remain of the same size like in the original photo. You can adjust the brightness and contrast to match the original photo. And as long as the new picture isn’t too dark or too bright, you’re doing just fine.
Step number 4. Change the text fields – as you are doing such, try to look for fonts that are close to the ones that are used on the current ID with ones being courier w/ slab serif especially on older IDs the most common. Adjust the font spacing and size as well so by that, it will be a close match.
While entering a full name, do it without abbreviations and the only instance when you need to use it is for things like III or Jr. It will be wise of you to put a realistic birth date as well. When you’re using old ID as your template, you don’t like to keep it that way as it may conflict the year the person was born to how it actually looks personally.
Step number 5. Print out the new ID – as you are printing your new ID, put it on a heavy cardstock and make sure that you print both the back and front. After that, cut out every side of the new ID and glue the two sides so they will be able to form a card. And any overlapping edges should be trimmed.
Step number 6. Add holograms – this is actually optional but if you would like to add an extra layer of authenticity to the fake ID, then be sure to add holograms.
