Forensic Printing Process Identification is an online course about identification of various printing processes in banknotes, checks, stock certificates and other security documents. Students will learn the characteristics of letterpress, intaglio, offset, inkjet, toner and other common printing technologies, how to differentiate each printing process from the others, and practice how to use magnification and lighting to extract forensic information from a sample of printed material.
Why Learn to Identify Print?

Identifying different types of print is a critical skill for detection of counterfeit documents. Genuine security documents (banknotes, etc.) are typically printed using a few specific technologies, such as letterpress, intaglio and offset printing. But counterfeiters can only use printing technologies that are are accessible to them, and they often improvise and use the wrong combination of printing processes (or digital processes, like inkjet) to produce counterfeits. Since various printing methods look different from each another under magnification, counterfeits can be identified by individuals trained in printing process identification.
Who Can Benefit from Forensic Printing Process Identification?

Banknote collectors, stamp collectors, numismatists, document enthusiasts, forensic document examiners, and anyone interested in forensic detection of counterfeit documents. Learning the material taught in Forensic Printing Process Identification will improve your understanding of your hobby or your skill in your employment, and will also help you protect yourself from being a victim of counterfeit documents.
Is Forensic Printing Process Identification right for you?

Try out the first two chapters for FREE, risk-free. (See the link below.) If you find the first two chapters useful and enjoyable, I guarantee you’ll love the rest. By contributing to this Kickstarter campaign, you’ll be a part of the development of Forensic Printing Process Identification and you’ll receive the remaining chapters at an attractive price.
What Topics are Covered in Forensic Printing Process Identification?

Characteristics of letterpress, intaglio, offset, inkjet, toner are all covered in detail, with extensive discussion about how to identify both traditional and digital counterfeits based on printing methods.

The full content of Forensic Printing Process Identification will include, at a minimum, the following chapters:

Chapter 1: Introduction (available now)
Chapter 2: Letterpress Printing (available now)
Chapter 3: Intaglio Printing
Chapter 4: Offset Printing
Chapter 5: Graphic Arts and Counterfeit Detection
…and maybe more!

Chapters 2 through 4 discuss the characteristics of the most common printing technologies used for banknotes and other security documents – letterpress, intaglio and offset printing. Chapter 5 covers the technical approaches counterfeiters can use to capture and replicate document images, and describes how to use printing process identification techniques to identify both traditional counterfeits as well as digital counterfeits produced on inkjet and toner office machines.

The chapters above are the minimum that will be produced for Forensic Printing Process Identification… though additional material may be added later depending on how the course development unfolds.
What is the Course Content Like?

All chapters are illustrated extensively with graphics and interactive exercises. Forensic Printing Process Identification contains hundreds of magnified images of print captured on a forensic imaging workstation, and lots of interactive exercises for the user, which make it unlike any other printing process identification training course available today.

I thought about adding screenshots here, but they just don’t capture the interactivity, so I decided against it. The best way to understand the course is to try it! Read on below to get the first two chapters for free.
Chapters 1 and 2 Available for FREE Now!

The first two chapters are finished, and FREE. Forensic Printing Process Identification is an online course, and is provided through the website of my company, Counterfeit Forensics, LLC. Try the chapters here:

Subject matter expertise necessary to author the chapters,
A sufficiently deep collection of banknotes and other documents to use as examples,
The forensic photography equipment needed to capture specialized document images,
An understanding of the imaging and e-learning software packages to build the modules, and
The commitment to complete the entire project over a period of (1) year.

All you need to do is review the free chapters and decide whether you like what you see. If you do, consider contributing to the campaign.

And speaking of contributions…
What’s the Money For?

Development of an e-learning course like Forensic Printing Process Identification requires lots of resources up-front, and I’ve already committed several thousand dollars to the project. Some of the expenses I have already incurred to produce the first two chapters include:

Purchase of a forensic imaging system for capturing magnified images of print,
Purchase of imaging editing software for editing photos and scanned images,
Purchase of e-learning development software for creating the interactive course modules,
Sourcing of quantities of example banknotes and other security documents, and
E-learning website development and course deployment expenses.

My funding goals are to first recover the money I’ve already spent, but I also hope to earn more for the effort.
Why Contribute Now?

Contributing to Forensic Printing Process Identification during the Kickstarter campaign allows backers to secure a good value now, since the price may go up after the Kickstarter campaign is complete. And by supporting the Kickstarter campaign now, backers can be a part of the development of Forensic Printing Process Identification and get immediate access to the chapters as soon as they are complete, rather than waiting for the full course to be finished up to a year later. Finally, by contributing now you get a longer subscription period.
What’s the Timeline?

The target completion schedule for Chapters 3 through 5 will be as follows:

Chapter 3 – target April 1, 2018
Chapter 4 – target July 1, 2018
Chapter 5 – target October 1, 2018

It is always possible that there will be unforeseen delays or setbacks to this schedule resulting from events beyond my control, so this development target timeline is shorter than the one (1) year timeline noted above for full completion of all chapters even if delays do occur.
Who am I?

My name is Joel Zlotnick, and I am the founder of Counterfeit Forensics, LLC. In a former career as a forensic scientist, I worked in the U.S. Secret Service laboratory in Washington, DC as a counterfeit document examiner. While employed there, I examined many thousands of counterfeit banknotes and other documents that were manufactured using a wide variety of printing techniques, trained hundreds of Secret Service agents, taught counterfeit detection courses all over the world, and testified in U.S. federal courts as an expert in counterfeiting. During and after my training at the Secret Service, I studied counterfeiting methods, forensic ink identification, imaging and printing technologies, document security feature technologies, and many related topics. My education includes a B.S. in Chemistry and M.S.F.S. in Forensic Science.
Risks and challenges

Backers of any Kickstarter campaign must ask themselves whether the campaign can deliver on its promises.

I’ve already made two chapters available for free, which clearly demonstrates that I already have the skills, tools and resources needed to produce future chapters. Assuming no serious hiccups interrupt the development timeline, I should be able to output a new chapter about every three months. To be conservative and allow for unexpected delays, I’ve proposed to finish the remaining three chapters within one (1) year from the end of the campaign.

I am committed to producing a thorough and well-designed product. For that reason, it takes a lot of time to examine volumes of documents, select the best examples, scan and photograph the documents, edit the images, author the text, assemble the materials into a chapter, and finally publish. I do have a day job and family commitments that compete for my time, so it’s possible there will be some delays during the process. To get ahead of any delays that may come up, I’ll be working even before the campaign ends to get ahead of the target schedule.
