I ordered my BC from the state I was born and they sent me a wallet sized one. (business card size) It is NOT a laminated one. It is on watermarked paper, with a raised notary stamp. It states it is a state document and that it is from Vital Records. The only information that I can tell that is really missing is my parents' names. Otherwise it seems the same info that would be on a letter-sized BC would be there. (name, dob, registration date, city of birth, gender) I called DCL and they said it would be fine as long as it is from an official source and has the seal, but he didn't sound extraordinarily confident as I don't think he was familiar with what I was describing. So just simply looking to hear from others that have successfully or unsuccesfully cruised on DCL recently with one of these. Thanks so much!
