Here are JPEGs of the Inara papers I made.
They are all EU (extended universe).

I printed these first two on green marbled paper:

I printed these on heavy bright white paper:

These two I printed on light tan card stock:

I still haven't made any meaningful progress on my Inara display.

Just a collection of brick-a-brack at this point.
But, this acquisition,
one of Shawna Trpcic's original costume sketches,

Image

should be a motivator, once I get ahead of real-life responsibilities.
("Sketch" seems like such a minimizing term for such a delicate and intricate piece of art. )

Wow! These Inara items are really nice. I was watching that production sketch when it was on eBay. I am glad that it has gone to a place where it will get the attention it deserves. Nice job!

Nice work, Mike! There aren't many Inara props to be had, so what you've got is pretty darn cool! Congrats on the Trpcic acquisition, btw! I'm happy you got it :D It really ramps up you Inara collection 8-)

You are certainly welcome to use anything I post in a forum like this.
Right now I'm having trouble finding the font I used for the Companion Contract.
If you can find that, I can email you various blank and partially complete versions of those forms
to create documents for new characters.
(And hey, if you find the font, let me know, too!)
I have the MSWord documents that I used that were done with bitmaps of the images.
Only problem; I'm busy with a number of outdoor projects that are looking to eat up my whole summer.
So, you might end up waiting for me to get around to sending you anything.
I have to admit, that "overwhelmed-ed-ness" is why I just posted the JPEGS here and on theRPF.

Thanks Guys!
I could never pick a "crown jewel" of my collection.
Just too many items that are all special in their own ways.
But this amazing "sketch" is just so beautifully rendered...just...wow.
I was thrilled when I got it.
With some of the prices that things were going for, I was sweating it.
It really does up the ante of my Inara display items!
When I get some time, I want to design a signature plate to have Shawna sign
and frame the sketch, the cloth swatches and the signature plate.
Now if I could just find that fancy script font........

mike, email me what you have for the docs and i'll see what i can do to flesh them out and throw them together as fillable pdf forms (so the names can be changed and that sort of thing).

Sure, just PM your email address.
Like I said, they are bitmaps of images, not constructed text docs.
Text doc is how I made my original Alliance Occupational Authorization form,
shown in JPEG form here:
viewtopic.php?f=25&t=189&start=10

Everytime I lose the font I made the thing with, everything goes wonky and I gotta rebuild it,
which means mostly I don't (even though I want to make one for Simon and Inara.)
