This is a very cool idea.  Many thanks to those who are working on this.  Would it be reasonable/appropriate/desirable for me to make a jpg of my most scruciatingly royal signature to put on these cards?

I thought it was "King John" and not "King John I".
it's both, but the latter is more formal. He's the first King John! He would be the third King Robert, if that were his name, or the second King Florence.

[...] I don't have an amazing design sense.  As I recall, you do -- maybe you want to take a crack at it?

Oh, I certainly wasn't born with design genes, but I did some research back in the day, and did again now.

So, there are a bunch of standards for and around ID's. The most popular size for ID cards is defined by ISO/IEC 7810 as ID-1, at 85.6mm x 53.98mm (pretty much credit card size). Another standard (ISO/IEC 7501) picks that up for machine readable identification cards, which encompasses passports, visas, and national ID's. There is an equivalent standard set by ICAO (https://www.icao.int) as Doc 9303. (It's in their best interest as these are travel documents, and it's freely available.)

These standards have a bunch of requirements, and I believe the images I'm attaching here fulfill them all, so this would be a legit/legal/valid/100%correct ID. And when I say legal I actually mean it -- The nationality is stated (as per ISO 3166-1 plus ICAO extensions) as unspecified; IANAL, I wouldn't recommend traveling with it.

Codes and checksums are correct. Translations are likely incorrect.

Another sample.

The number of ID is comprised by a series (A) + year of emission (22) + citizen ID (292, zero-padded to 4 digits) + a serial/consecutive number for the emission (00).

This is all done in Inkscape (SVG), so it's easier to edit and automate.

Wow! This looks amazing. Is the numbering / labeling process going to be too much for right now, though? I guess that's up to whoever is going to be doing this.

Also, is there a space we could leave for the king's signature?

Stellar work... you're soft selling your own abilities, but you have serious chops.

We always referred to Ben Madison as "King Robert I", even before there was a Robert II

I'm happy to propose Danihel's design to Cabinet, if he lets us have the original files (pref. in XCF format) to make mild changes to.

Also, I think they should be signed by the SoS, not His Maj.

Attached, for Inkscape.

I'm not married to the Alfios font (the serif one). OCRB is needed. Roboto available here: https://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/roboto-2014

When making changes, please make sure it still complies with ICAO Doc 9303 parts 3 (§ 3.2, 4.5) and 5 (§ 2.3, 3.1, 3.2, 4.1).

@Danihel Txechescu Your translations were mostly fine, except they dont follow the new spellings. Are you still using the old Översteir?

Thanks! Will update and keep readily available.

Yes. I went to Talossan.com and then to English<->Talossan, and, well, that didn't work, so I used my (old) copy.

Let's do both!  It's just digital and it will be cooler.

Actually, my preference would be to have it signed by His Majesty and then have a sort of "stamp" emblem, mimicking a rubber seal stamp (the real one of which is kicking around somewhere) for the SoS.  But that's probably too much hassle and we shouldn't let the perfect be the enemy of the good -- we need to get these things out there!

The new Översteir is over at oversteir.talossa.com. I've been told some people have trouble accessing the page, but I can't replicate the issues. Let me know if you have similar problems.

I know i am fairly new to the country but i do think there should be a place for the Kings signature on the card. Sort of an official stamp of approval

Or some sort of stamp/seal. Yes, I know the arms are on the back, but if I recall correctly does Talossa not have a full achievement? (A “greater” coat of arms, if you will.)

The Cabinet has approved this design by majority vote.

Next steps are fine-tuning the design (inc. any possible signatures); and questions of production and distribution.
