i dont get why they use cutouts from a magazine, if they are worried of someone finding out based on handwriting, why not type it? and dont tell me they dont have access to a computer. if they can steal a ******* golden cookie from a statue, im they can figure somthing easier out.

Some printers leave watermarks, giving the date and sometimes the serial number of the printer.

but anon said it could be some kind of uv ink. which seems unlikely, but wouldnt you check for that?

Nah usually its a pattern of tiny yellow dots nearly invisible without magnification.

Originally to make sure documents weren't counterfeit. Also happened to be useful for tracing them.

oh well i mean why would the printer itself put that there, i guess they did that for this actual purpose?

yes, I believe most printers now a days do this, So if you want to ask for a ransom, don't print your letter

they can narrow down your location via paper type, ink type, and printer pattern. also it classic you scrub
