A new doctor in friendlist! I didn’t feel like stopping at a mere congratulation, this is a rare event I must celebrate!

But what will I gift her?

A fake “ID” card? Fake prescription template? But what will make them unique?

That’s when my friend, kutti doctor’s sister called her “Lady Greg House”. I had no clue who it was, Google gave me Dr. Greg House from House M.D. Eureka.

That was followed by marathon House MD Season 1, thanks to Christy Varghese.

Then this happened.

I played a bit with bar code and ID number – both translates to “Kutti Doctor”, what I call her. Barcodes can be generated for free online, for example, http://www.barcode-generator.org/ (choose Code-39 for text codes). For ID number, I used same idea as Facebook’s 92FACEBOOK number (typing in a T9 keypad gives their phone number, 9232232665), for the same text. Each item is in a different layer in RAW XCF file, or if you are not a pro, just use the images in this post (are of fairly good resolution for and ID card – actual sizes are 1/4th of what is there in image).

Prescription
Prescription Model, Concept from House MD
Prescription: Size: 1/2 A4

It had to be a bit “Indianised”, specially prescription, moving away from small square chit in House MD. (The prescription is shown in one of the episodes when elderly lady comes to return the prescription to House). There are two pages in file – print it as two pages in one page A4 for correct dimensions.

The paper folder
Folder and Prescription Printed

Now instead of binding the prescription papers, I made a folder, when folded, will give you half A4 size. I hope you will figure out where to fold/cut and stick. Also, little care should be taken to make sure that the prescription papers fit into the folder well before sticking. I also cut it along the border on top and it looked better than a square folder.

Copyright

You are free to use it as you wish. The logo of Princeton Placeboro et al should be the copyright of studios making House MD, so please don’t use it for mass printing. Raw files are in GIMP’s xcf format (I use GIMP), I can convert it for you if you want (leave a comment below). I’d be glad if you leave a word here in comments if you used the template, it’s really encouraging to know that it came to use for someone!
