For the Jason Bourne in all of us

I have an idea in mind that would be centered around a fake passport-like document taken to specific, fun places around the world. Not something fake enough to break laws, but fake enough to be something fun to carry around, not look cheap, and be durable to carry around and get stamped when requested. Where would I go to get something like this made?

The real passports I have held and thumbed through seem to have a few common characteristics:
- textured, thick, durable covers
- cover also has gold-leaf print for country and text information
- thick page with photograph and personal information, covered in plastic
- nice paper for, say, 20 or 32 pages of stamps
That's the sort of thing I'm looking to aim for.
Are there companies that make runs of these, say in 500-1000 batches, that could look and feel halfway decent?
I'm thinking that the average print shop probably wouldn't do this, as it is too small for them to be profitable and requires too special a printing process.
I have searched Google and haven't found much. Non-DIY and other suggestions are much appreciated.
