A couple more ideas.

Front adds years in Talossan format. Back adds arms for the King and the subject; I like this in order to promote the arms of the citizenry. There's a bit more space for signature in both front and back.

I printed these options and feel that the picture is a tad too big at 35x45 mm. The spec says it can be as little as 32x26 mm, so anything between those two is game.

Wow, these just keep getting better and better! Definitely the best one yet!

It feels like to do justice to these, we should really get them printed on cardstock and laminated. In fact, we might want to actually just have them printed out as photo card style, like real IDs.

Feels like the government should be represented very prominently, too, though. Maybe scoot over the king's signature to make room for the signature of the Secretary of State, too? Or would that be too cramped?

Also: one of the things that was suggested fairly strenuously by some of the lawyers we have in the country was the phrase, "Valid for all Talossan purposes." Might be worth including that fine print somewhere on here!

Looks like custom ID badges are something like $4 apiece. So that's probably a little pricey to offer gratis! Printing them on cardstock and laminating them will be only 5 to 10 cents apiece, in contrast.

I love the design, but keep in mind that the text on the back still says "qa" instead of "certifia qe", which I can't explain.
Editing posts is my thing. My bad.

Ah, will fix. I didn't see that mistake in the sentence even though I went through it again when you last posted the text. Thanks!

If you include the SoS signature, I guess I better practice my Talossan signature :-)

Should read as 35x45 mm vs 26x32 mm.

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.
In some countries "King xxxx" is just that ... until there is a second "King xxxx", and only then is the first one "King xxxx I".  In the UK there has been only one Queen Anne - so that's what she is called. She will become "Queen Anne I" only when there is a "Queen Anne II", and, of course, thereafter.

I asked elsewhere, but having read through this thread, I am still wondering if there is a purpose to these cards other than having them?

They'll be cool to have, but also a promotional tool to show to others.  And you never know what might happen in the future once we get this sort of thing going :)

I won't get in the way of something that motivates and inspires Talossans. I am worried that it will be just another task that gets waysided by the avalanche of other bureaucratic tasks.
