    Why do you want a Canadian passport, Mr. Sable?

    Cause, like, I'm Canadian, eh? And I need to hide out in Ensenada for a while, eh? Beauty.

    Newsflash!:

    I am now able to make my passport replicas with genuine gold foil covers, like this:

    If I get too good at this I'll have the Feds beating down my door... or in my case, I suppose it'll be Interpol. [​IMG]

    Kind regards,
    Indy

    Thought I'd bump this old thread up for those who never got to see it.

    I've now moved beyond heat-transfer foil to genuine die-stamped foil:

    Though not vintage, this cover better shows the detail and quality of the new cover stock and foil method I'm using:

    Here are some newer images of my vintage passport replicas:

    US circa 1930s:

    UK circa 1940s:

    Pre-WWII Japanese:

    So, if anyone is interested in a vintage passport, I can fully customize these with your own photo and fictional-travel visas. Drop me a PM or e-mail.

    Kind regards,
    Indy

    That is very cool, indeed.
    Random question: can you do a Kingdom of Hawaii replica passport, circa 1890?

    What would be sharp would be one for Ellery Queen, ca. 1938 -- and use a pic of Richard Carlson from Hold That Ghost, wearing the rimless spectacles and looking very studious:

    Hold That Ghost 12.jpg

    That's not a passport-type photo, though. How about this?

    (I originally wrote "Hugh Marlowe," because I always confuse those two actors . . . and Marlowe did play Ellery Queen on TV -- )

    Wondering what a 60's era US passport for Napoleon Solo, or Russian passport for Illya Kuryakin would look like?
