Hi

I came across a pdf recently with was made to look like a passport

http://media.corporate-ir.net/media_files/irol/11/110264/320263_Quicksilver_LR.pdf

I liked the passport stamps and was wondering how I could do that effect in Powerpoint?

Thanks

You can't do this with powerpoint - I suspect the example you refer to has been done with Adobe InDesign or a simiar high-end document production package

I don't see why you couldn't create something like this with PowerPoint! If you can find passport images for the first few pages, then your off and running. The rest of the document is basically a mix of images and text.

You should be able to easily create a slide background using the gradient function (from blue to pink).

Good to hear. But the actual stamps like "Mountain Strategy" and "Female Market". Any idea how i could do these with the rubber stamp / faded effect? Thanks

That will require a graphics/image editor like Paint.NET or GIMP! But you may be able to find what you need using a google search. I'll get back to you a little later if you still need some help!

I didn't think it could be done either but paulsauve convinced me. I built this passport stamp in about 15 minutes...EE Passport Stamp...based on this awesome template
Rubber stamps in PowerPoint Template
It was fun, and there are so many options in PowerPoint with word art and artistic effects that you should become a stamp guru no time.

But I couldn't get PP to create a 2 color gradient - but I did this in GIMP:Powerpoint - page backgroundYou can use it as a background if you use to for a PP document.

Here's the PowerPoint file, I found the EE logo in Google images. I grouped all the elements so I could rotate the entire stamp
