Did Coltfarmer get a chance to print some off?

Thanks for these files! The cash I've printed off at this point looks so good, people mistake it for real - my printer gives the bills a sheen akin to real money. I take the raw bills, soak em in some coffee for a few moments, put 'em n a bag, and toss them in the dryer. Thereafter, I pull them out, flatten them and pop in my wallet. Simply excellent!

Glad they came in handy for you. You should post some pictures of your finished product.

They look great. I like that you didn't print them on bright white paper. I also use the paper from an Art Drawing Pad... it's a little thicker then most printer paper and not as slick

Thanks! Ya, I'm quite proud of them. The secret is to crumple and recrumple them. It breaks up the heavy toner coating. Once the coffee browns the bills up a bit and the drier cooks them crunchy, they really look like they're in daily circulation. I carry a stash in my soldbuch wallet. Just a little extra nudge of depth for your impression.
