It’s amazing just how much detail is in an (older) US dollar bill.  I recently finished this gift certificate/bonus voucher and I tried to make the detail as true as I could.  I dig the older designs like silver certificates and the like.  The new ones just looks trashy in comparison.

In order to satisfy DotT’s ‘recommended practices’ I had to create 50% of the design manually. No Copying.  Considering it’s largely symmetrical, that kept me in the clear –never mind the oversize printing specs.  The proofs should be coming back from the printer any time now.   Interestingly, modern digital printers dont come close to the needed resolutions —I had to simplify this a lot.
