Microprinting is the process of printing very small text which is not legible for the naked eye unless magnified many fold on a note or item. It is most often used on currency as an additional anti-counterfeiting measure. These days however, microprinting is being used in packaging, ID cards, bank checks and other items of value for the same purpose. Computer scanners or photocopiers cannot detect the micro-text unless with high resolution image sensors and hence any copies will effectively show a line or dotted line instead of the micro-text.
