I think I might have to just print myself a made up ID card because I can't wait.... :-p

I saved the pdf Ordination Certificate from when I signed up, re-sized it to something vaguely resembling a credit card, printed on heavy stock (antiqued) paper, then cut it out and ghetto-laminated by covering both sides in clear packaging tape. Probably the most work I've done since the Fall of aught-seven.

Overall, however, the impression leaves much to be desired. So, yeah, whenever this-a-here official card thing is a go, I'm your huckleberrry.

On printing/laminating, the way I did the Food Ministry card is I made up a 4" x 6" photo file using Gimp that had two copies of the image.  I took that on a flash drive to Fedex Office where they have Sony Photo Printers and did a zoom on the screen until it was the right scale (had to shrink just a tiny bit) and printed it on glossy photo paper.  $0.39 per badge.

I took that, cut it out, laid them back to back and hot laminated them into wallet card pouches.  I added a piece of wire for strength since I was punching them for a lanyard.

The heat will cause the print to smear just a little, but if you use the slick lined pouch to put the wallet pouch in, it's not bad at all.

I made one in Adobe Illustrator and used a heat laminating pouch. Ran it through, and kept it on me for a while. I have the bowling ball yin-yang on the back.

Does anyone have the art for the wood yin yang on Dude De Ching site. If I made my own I'd use that.

Just realized my special wifey friend works at the Wally World Photolab... and thus has access to a laminating machine.  And she's not too shabby at the photo-shoppery, either...

Oh yeah, this dude's getting an ID!  Thanks for the idea, dudes!

There are a few technical issues to work out with the IDs, but they should be available soon, they will come with a special holgram on them, I've seen the design, it is cool.

Given that The Dudely Lama hasn't posted on here in over a year, "soon" is not a very reassuring timeframe...  :-p

Wait, isn't the Dudely Lama named Oliver? Because he was on here recently, dealing with a problem poster. Or is there another guy at the top as well, a Brandt to his Big Lebowski?

Yes Oliver is the Dudely Lama, and Forum Dude.

We (the other Admins) gave him final call on a problem we had been experiencing.
