Hi guys,

We all know paper wallets are a very solid solution to store your coins. For bitcoin, multiple nice templates and wallets are available, but for all other coins they are hard to come by.
Because more and more people here are involved in multiple altcoins now, it would be a massively good idea to make a template that can be used and customized for ALL of them.
This can be done by making a graphic layout that FIXES the stuff all coins have in common, and leaving out the parts of the paper wallet that are a property of a certain coin.
I would like to get something out there, but unfortunately i don't have the photoshop talent to make a template, nor the programming skill to make an automated program around it if we desire that. Sad
I do however have a decent pair of brains, so let me explain what i was thinking about.

I would like to start from the layout that safepaperwallet.com uses, because the idea of a bill with a seperatable strip that you can store elsewhere is a very good idea for safety reasons.


First off, we need to get rid off all the bitcoin related stuff and divide the bill into zones that can be customised at will to make a bill for a certain coin.
The zones can be fixed in a certain spot, but will have different content every time, depending on the coin the bill is for.
I got most of my inspiration from the magic the gathering SET editor software (http://magicseteditor.sourceforge.net/screenshots), a fine piece of software that allows you to make custom MTG cards based on templates in a couple of clicks. a similar concept can be seen here if you want to test it out without downloading: http://www.mtgcardmaker.com/
just type in a bunch of random shizzle and watch it end up in the appropriate zones after you click generate.
This concept is very much applicable to paper wallets!

If we can somehow combine the usefulness of that program with a template for a paper wallet, we would be able to make paper wallets for whatever coin we desire, and be able to customize color, background images and titles at will.

basically we would define a couple of zones in the template, and then the user can input whatever he desires in those zones. Some examples:
- Background [IMG]: set the background image
- Currency title [string]: Type in the name of your currency
- Amount [double]: define the amount of coins in the bill (optional if you plan on receiving more coins on that adress)
- Public key QR code [QRcode]: insert the image for the QR code linked to the public key
- Private key QR code [QRcode]: insert the image for the QR code linked to the private key (you can manually cover this off with scratch off strips after printing)

The template would make sure all data is in the right position. After finalising the custom design, the paper can be printed and used! Job done!

 

Anyone in? Would be lovely to make this happen!

Lewis,

Please read my post, instead of looking at the picture and being a wise-ass about it.

Thanks!

Its a great idea - I have skills in creating images of all sorts , i mostly learned these by doctoring documents for the Russians .

{i also taught myself illustrator in a couple of weeks}

so if you want me to make some designs I'm happy to do that !
