Place your ID in the opening and let it flow through the laminator. Let it cool for 5-10 minutes before touching it. Once you’ve removed it and trimmed the excess laminate, you’ve got a fake ID.[9]
Depending on the make and model of your laminator, you may need to let it warm up for a few minutes before using it.
If the temperature is too high, the glue in between the 2 layers of cardstock will melt.
Trim the laminate with a pair of scissors or a utility knife. It should be really easy to get a clean cut when trimming the laminate since it’s so thin.
Purchase some Teslin paper to get a real ID feel. Most government IDs are printed on a proprietary cardstock that you won’t be able to purchase. Teslin paper is a good substitute and will closely resemble the feel of a government ID after you laminate and trim the final product.[10]
A lot of medium- and high-end laser printers have the capacity to print on Teslin paper, but the quality may be low if you try to use a printer that doesn’t have manual controls for the print settings.
Find an ID Template online that matches the state that you’re trying to fake. To get an accurate ID template, you’ll need to download one from a torrent-hosting site. You may be able to buy or download one from the deep web as well. You can try digitally-editing a scan or photo of an ID, but the resolution is unlikely to match the original.[12]
The most popular torrent-hosting sites are https://www.thepiratebay.org/ and https://torrentfreak.com/.
To digitally edit a real ID, you’ll need to use the duplicate/stamp clone tool and erase every single line of unique text.
Some templates are form-fillable, meaning that you can simply type each line of text into the template and print it that way.
Take a new photo using the same background and upload it to your computer. If the ID photos for your state have a blue background, set up a blue drape or blanket behind you. Use three-point lighting to replicate the look of professional photos by setting up three light sources with 2 on either side of your camera and 1 above you. Set your camera on a tripod and use the self-timer to take your portrait.[13]
Don’t take your photo on a phone. Even if the picture looks good, the resolution is probably wrong for an ID card. Use a high-quality camera on a low shutter speed to take the photo.
