physical document security
Posted on 2005-05-14
I have an unusual request. I have the need to send printed documents to overseas business associates and I would like to make sure that my documents are not copied or altered in any way. I have considered copy-proof paper... you know the kind that shows "void" or "unauthorized copy" when someone tries to put it through a copyer or scanner. I wonder if there are any inks or special printers that will generate a printed letter with text that breaks down if someone tries to copy it? I know this sound a little crazy, but I would be interested in any ideas that any of you have. The reason for this is simple. The copy-proof paper keeps people from forwarding unauthorized copies as originals but it does not keep people from copying and retyping a document on fresh, regular paper.
Please let me know if the request for information is not clear.
