Printer identification based on printed documents can provide forensic information to protect copyright and verify authenticity. In addition to intrinsic features (intrinsic signatures) of the printer, modulating the printing process to embed specific signature (extrinsic signatures) will further extend the encoding capacity. In this paper we describe the use of laser modulation in electrophotographic printers to embed information in a text document. In particular we describe an embedding and detection process which allows the embedding of 1 bit in a single line of text. For a typical 12 point document with 50 lines of text, 33 bits can be embedded per page.
