After ID Chief shut down, I started looking for a new provider of IDís. These are being used in movies, generally for bar and liquor store scenes. These movie props never would be shown to a police officer or any used to cross a border.
After looking at the possible options I decided on going with Silk Road. Itís definitely a little harder to figure out. Setting up TOR takes some tech skills and then BitCoins arenít the easiest to use. SR is set up similarly to Amazon and eBay so the sellers donít get paid until your product arrives and you can leave public feedback regarding their products. This allows you to see what other buyers have said about the sellers. You buy everything using BitCoins, which is a type of internet based currency. Iím sure there are other people out there who can explain it better than I can but basically itís as close to an anonymous currency as possible. Silk Road does some other stuff too to ensure that youíre as anonymous as possible.
Once I decided to go with Silk Road I started researching all the sellers and reading their reviews. Below is a list of common sellers and my experience and/or immediate reactions about them.
State(s): New Jersey, Maryland, Illinois
The prices on these are unreal, by far the cheapest seller out there. Price obviously correlates to quality though. Currently, thinline closed his listings which either mean heís out or heís just on back order. If he opens them up again, I would only buy if you want to spend the least amount of money as possible-- with the knowledge that the quality will probably not be great. Note: only the Illinois ID has UV, NJ and Maryland do not.
State(s): Florida, New York, California
I talked to WeID and was looking at both their Cali and Florida ID (the NY one is more expensive). He said the Florida one was better than Cali. His prices are fair and his quality looks solid. Responded slowly-ish to my messages with not much information. Some claim this is a LEO account, unconfirmed though.
This seller is fairly new but after talking extensively, and I mean really extensively, about ID and the Ohio ID specifically I could tell that he knows his shit. Ted responded to all my questions within hours and was really helpful. If I was him I would have been getting annoyed with all my questions, but he was always knowledgeable and informative.
I ended up doing a group order of 4 IDs from him. Shipping was fast and discrete from in the US. The quality (for the price) is superb, one of the best Iíve seen in awhile. While this ID is far from perfect, itís pretty damn good. I wouldnít use it instate, but I would say youíre fine anywhere else.

I havenít been able to find a program online to check the barcode, but Iím sure it works fine.
I messaged him asking for a price on a group order and he responded promptly with a reasonable price. Unfortunately after more research I realized his IDs do not have UV which is a big red flag. Due to the lack of UV features, I decided not to go with him and would advise others stay away because many movies use blacklights to check UV.
State(s): California, Rhode Island, Idago, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arizona, New York, Texas, Manitoba, Quebec, Alberta, South Wales, United Kingdom
Not a ton I can say here, they look legit. Obviously a little more expensive than other sellers but they offer a wide array of states and Canadian provinces along with the UK and student ID cards. Good reviews of them.
They are the only seller offering Illinois and they seem to do it well. They have lots of positive reviews and a solid price.
State(s): Florida and California
Peach looks to have the best IDs out there. Youíre going to be paying a ton, but if you have the money I would say theyíre worth it. Price=quality, peach has the best quality. Peach claims these work instate.
When going on Silk Road, expect to pay a premium over other online retailers. I think that premium is worth it though. SR offers features to make you as anonymous as possible and has a process to deal with conflicts between buyers and sellers. If you decided to buy off the site I would highly recommend TedDanzigSR. I had a great experience with him and his prices and quality are right on.
If you had an experience with Ted or any other sellers, feel free to post here. If people are interested I could edit this original posting to add feedback on other SR sellers like how the Fake ID thread is set up.
