Fake ID Card Images
Basic fake ID cards can be created quickly with just a laser printer, photo editing program and copy of an authentic license front. More complex fake IDs require more sophisticated technology such as hologram overlays and magnetic stripe encoders to produce. Most amateur Photoshop users lack the skill set needed to produce such IDs; therefore professional fake ID manufacturers employ much more advanced techniques, including Teslin sheets with butterfly pouches to house holograms for production.
This material resembles paper but is microporous, creating an ID with professional appearance when laminated using a laminator. However, its laminate may not last as long and often peel backs; fake IDs may also have folds or dirt underneath their laminate and rough edges – all characteristics to look out for when inspecting an ID.
Feeling an ID to see if it has bumps and ridges similar to genuine identification cards can help detect forgeries; alterations signs include signatures that go beyond their designated space on an ID and typefaces like Courier or slab serif that match those found on authentic state-issued IDs can also indicate its genuineness; lastly, examine UV imagery featured by some states which will only appear visible under black light illumination.
