What is a Document?

A document is any material upon which a permanent or semi-permanent message can be imprinted. Forensic document examiners work with any substance that can impart a written message. While documents most frequently consist of paper written with pen or pencil, document examiners have studied typewritten materials, carbon copies, graffiti on walls or locker doors, chalk on blackboards, mirrors marked with lipstick, markings on cardboard boxes, and blotting paper.
