Of course ! This wouldn't be possible without ReportLab anyway.

Beware though, I'm not sure about the redistribution rights for
the fonts I use, so please check this.

I currently use the following fonts : 

        ExpletiveDeleted.ttf  ==> gives the best result because it
                                  includes some special characters.
                                  Created by Rich Gast.
        tommys.ttf  ==> not bad, looks like it's written by a very young
                        child. Created by Tom Murphy from Divide By Zero.
                        Freely useable and redistributable only for no fee.
        farewell.ttf ==> I didn't keep any info about it, sorry                        
        cathsgbr.ttf ==> I didn't keep any info about it, sorry
Feel free to add more fonts to the fonts directory, and more ink spots        
to the spots directory on your own setup, they'll all be used at

The current spots archive is available from :

This archive is now placed into the public domain. I wasn't able to make
RL+PIL accept my PNG images as input, that's why there are GIF images
as well.

Also any info about paper formats used in GB or elsewhere is more than

bye, and thanks again
