Does anyone know how you get the stamp for the back of passport photos in Canada? I want to start to do passport photos and I can't seem to find out anywhere how to get the stamp. Thanks.

Have you talked to your local passport office? Maybe one of the photographers in the area who does passport photos? I used to do them years ago when managing a Sooter studio but I have no idea where we got them.

Thanks... I think I will drop into Henrys and ask them about the stamp, good idea.
I read somewhere that you need a business number? The passport office didn't have a clue, and I can't find anything on the net. They tried to reject my passport because I took my own photo (even though it says you can on their website if you are a commercial photographer).
They put me through to a supervisor, who called iStock and was told that because we got money for our photos, they guessed we were considered "commercial"?

I did these way back in the 80s, at that time we bought the stamp ourselves. If I remember correctly, it was just our business stamp with name and address etc on it. On the other hand, it's around $9.00 to get it done without fuss.

Thank you Ryerson, but there are 6 of us that I do them for, plus we live out of town, so we have to get all gussied up and co-ordinate 6 people then drive to town and back, so its just easier to do them at home.
