Topic: Credit Card Prop Replicas

Finally bought an embossing machine so we could do credit card props... I've been playing around with some things and here are some test cards:

There are a bunch of tweaks I need to make to the above card to make it match the original prop, but I wanted to get something done to show what the embossing looks like.

These cards are basically printed heavy-weight card with a thick laminate. The end result is quite similar to PVC cards. Then the embossing is done and the "metallic" finish is just added with gold or silver sharpie, so it's not as reflective as the real deal and it will likely rub off more quickly too (so these are really only meant for display purposes).

For those of you who remember Simon's Visa card, it's nothing like that (which was practically a forgery it was so good). These are more of a "prop" quality.

I'm estimating these cards to be $25 each, as well as offering packaged deals (mostly for guys wanting the Bourne set of cards).

Let me know if you're interested and we'll look at doing some runs.

Also, any other card ideas are welcome...

Kind regards,
Magnoli

I'd love the Playboy card from Diamonds Are Forever.

Also the British Airways loyalty card from Goldeneye and the Black American Express that you've done a prototype of - and which looks excellent!

Re: Credit Card Prop Replicas

Although they're not embossed perhaps some of the R Sterling Universal Exports business cards from Quantum of Solace would be nice as part of a set of cards?

Sorry to derail...but...can't agree more...the Playboy cards from Gadget Meister are indistinguishable from the real thing ! Err, I believe  ajb007/embarrassed

Re: Credit Card Prop Replicas

These are the cards I've done
https://s9.postimg.cc/3lrss7n1n/image.jpg
The sharper image card from "a view to a kill"
The playboy card from "diamonds are forever"
And the British airways card from "GoldenEye.

And I'm trying to create the black American Express card
From "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of solace"
But getting the details just right is not easy.

You left this with Ferrara, I believe

Re: Credit Card Prop Replicas

Anyone wanting the Visa card with the Bond info on it, should contact Simon directly. He still has some left over from his run and the quality is superb! If you want something customized (ie your own name on it, etc), go ahead and order through my site, but I won't be doing any of these with "JAMES BOND" on it...

Re: Credit Card Prop Replicas

Bumping this up with some news: we've finally invested in a PVC card printer, so these are coming out quite a bit nicer now, especially with the embossed characters.

If you guys have other ideas for cards, let us know. We're also doing drivers licenses and other ID cards, so if you want anything made up, drop us a line.

We just completed a few prop passports for Mission: Impossible 6, so we're looking forward to seeing some more of our props on the big screen!

Kind regards,
Indy

Re: Credit Card Prop Replicas

Indy, Can you post photos of the current Bond-related cards you offer and how to go about adding them to our collections? -Ed

Re: Credit Card Prop Replicas

We can do almost anything as a custom job, so let us know your ideas. Currently, we've got the following:

American Express Black Card: http://www.magnoliprops.com/american-ex … p-523.html
UK Drivers License: http://www.magnoliprops.com/united-king … p-475.html
British Military ID: http://www.magnoliprops.com/british-mil … p-549.html

And, of course, any of our UK Passports can be made into each era's Bond:

For example...

Re: Credit Card Prop Replicas

Indy's passport replicas are top notch.  I had the Connery/Bond passport made years ago and provided the image of Connery looking straight at the camera from my personal collection.  The image had to be cleaned up a little.  Likewise, I provided the information on Bond's birthplace which comes from the Authorised Biography of James Bond by Pearson.  Pearson was also the first person to write a Biography on Ian Fleming for those who don't know.

So, what sharp little eyes you've got...wait till you get to my teeth.

Re: Credit Card Prop Replicas

This is awesome, I need more credit card props. Thanks for the link ajb007/martini

I want to buy the 1980s green Amex, but there is no option to include the 'Member Since' number.

Always have an escape plan. Mine is watching James Bond films.
