Monday—The Ransom Note Corner

Letter play with  free virtual ransom note generators & downloadable fonts


Click HERE to go to a fun site for generating your own ransom notes with virtual magazine clippings.

You can also upload your own background image from your desktop.  I created a blank orange background in Photoshop Elements and saved it as a 600x600 pixel jpeg.  The font is always the same, but you can shift to grayscale and reverse negative by clicking the foreground and background links just under the image window.

I saved my image in web archive format, emailed it to myself, saved it in iPhoto, and dropped it into PS Elements to save as a jpeg.  There is probably a more efficient way to save in jpeg format, but that's what I came up with this morning.  You can probably save a finished image from the website in something other than web archive format if you take the time to consider all of the save options.

LetterPlayground.com also has a fun ransom note generator, but you can't save the images and use them because the letter fonts are created by different artists, and all copyrights are reserved.  But, it's a fun place to play!
