Here are a few steps that you have to be aware of when planning to make one.

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 – when getting an image, see to it that hit has 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 may also adjust the brightness and contrast to be able to match to the original photo. You’re doing fine so long as the new picture isn’t too dark or too bright.
Step number 4. Change the text fields – when doing so, try finding fonts that are close to the one that is used on the current ID with ones being common are courier w/ slab serif especially on older IDs. In addition to that, adjust the font spacing and size so by that, it’ll be a close match.
When you are entering a full name, make sure not to abbreviate anything but the only instance when you should use it is for things such as Jr. or III. Putting a realistic birth date as well will be wise of you. If you are using an old ID as template, you do not want to keep it so that it says the person was born in 50s but still looking at his 20s.
Step number 5. Print out the new ID – put it on a heavy cardstock and be sure that you print the back and front as you’re printing your new ID. Then after, cut out every side of the new ID and glue both sides for them to form a card. Overlapping edges must be trimmed.
Step number 6. Add holograms – be sure to add hologram if you want to add a layer of authenticity to the fake ID but this is still up to you.
