    A photo ID is little more than a few graphics, some text, and a picture. You may want to create your own for many reasons, including club badges, convention badges, press passes, business IDs, or just for fun! This article hosts a great collection of ten Photoshop ID templates, ready for you to alter as you wish.

    Please note: None of these are intended to help you create a fake ID and are for fun or personal use only. Also, some of these IDs might appear to be specific to a group or a website, but remember that you can easily alter the color scheme, fonts, pictures, and embelishments within Photoshop, so even a single template has no limitations on where you can take it.

    Business Card Templates

    Business card templates by Coreaux My favorite of the batch has got to be Business Card Templates by Coreaux, mainly due to the fact that there are multiple templates, each layered for ultimate customization. Yes, this is technically a business card template. And yes, I know that a business card isn't really an ID. However take a look at it. It's a really well designed business card that could easily be altered to fit your needs! And did I mention that there are thirteen different designs? Yep, and all for free.
