Handwriting analysis

  • Analyzing handwriting to figure out who wrote a note, or if a document is forged, is an important tool for investigators

  • A forgery is illegal, and is when you imitate someone’s signature to pretend to be them

  • By the time a person is an adult, his or her handwriting is often as unique to them as a fingerprint.


There are 12 basic characteristics used for comparing handwriting

  • Line quality: do the letters flow? Are they written in individual strokes more like printing?

  • Spacing between words and letters (Big? Small?)

There are 12 basic characteristics used for comparing handwriting


Handwriting analysis

  • Ratio of height, width and size of letters

  • Lifting a pen: is the pen picked up between words?

  • Connecting strokes: How are the capital letters connected to lowercase letters?


Handwriting analysis

  • Strokes begin and end: Where does the letter begin and end on a page

  • Unusual letter formations

  • Pen pressure: is it different on up and down strokes?

  • Slant: do the letters slant right or left?


Handwriting analysis

  • Baseline habits: does the author write on the line, or above or below the line?

  • Fancy writing habits: are there any unusual curls or loops?

  • Placement of diacritics: does the author cross the T’s or dot the i’s? How does it look?
