Fake id. Why to buy?

Toss your new, hologram-free card into your scanner. If it has any quality settings, be sure to set them to maximum. Fire it up, and if you’re lucky you should get something that looks like the picture below.
Most likely you will have a fair bit of text left, which we will be replacing in the next step to improve quality. Select the Clone Stamp tool, and Alt-click in the area surrounding the text you want to replace. You may need to adjust the brush size to fit the area you are working on (this is done from the toolbar across the top). Work piece by piece, making sure the area you alt-click has a similar colour/texture to the background behind the text. Next, click over the adjacent section of the text to replace it.
In this step we will remove the remaining text, as well as getting rid of any imperfections. Butterfly laminate pouches – Again, many websites to choose from. If you buy from PoisonID, they come with the teslin paper. However, if you want your card to be magnetic stripe-scannable, then you will need to buy from a site selling 10 mil pouches (PoisonID’s are 7 mil – close, but probably won’t work with a magnetic strip encoder).
Open your scan in photoshop. In this example we will be changing the “ID type” section of the card to say “full clearance” – that’s what you had in mind for a fake ID right?
Once you are done removing all the text (yeah, all of it. Scanned and then reprinted text looks terrible), fill it in using the type tool. You will want to try and match the font to that on your ID. If you can’t, Helvetica or Helvetica Condensed is a good bet for an official-looking typeface.
Continue using the Clone Stamp tool to replace any blemishes or holes in the ID, such as in the photo area, where bits of colour may be left over. An alternative to the Clone Stamp is the Marquee select tool (keyboard shortcut M). For areas that are simpler to fix (ie, text or holes over solid background), just select a spot next to it and copy and paste it over.
