Obtaining Handwriting Samples: Almost anything goes

It might be a grocery list or maybe a note to his wife. A to-do list he intended to use the next day.

Almost anything at all will work to ascertain an escalation in dangerousness. Violent intentions. Even suicide ideation.

Whatever you can find, it will provide you valuable insight into the mindset of the author — whether it is neat or scribbled, printed or written in cursive, whether it’s a simple note or an extensive letter.

It can be an envelope, an index card, a receipt, a card: our motto concerning handwriting sales is this:  ‘a stroke is a stroke, wherever you find it.’

Is it recent? Are you certain of the author? Can you text it, email or snail mail it to us? If so, you’re in.
